Talking about the shoot, Ryan had told PopSugar in one interview:
“It’s a tough show to shoot. The last two weeks we’ve been in the desert, Palmdale, you know, in degrees over 110. And it’s a physical show, and I do all of my own stunts.”
Ryan had continued:
“We kind of really push it to the limits. But I love it at the same time. It’s exhausting. I’ve got bruises. But it’s going really well, and I’m excited about people seeing this new season…When the season ends, I’m going to go on a bit of a break and heal.”
