This season of Lifetime's Preachers' Daughters is bound to get ugly. Yes, the show is about young Christian women who embark on a mission trip to Mexico to help those in need, but putting nine 20-somethings in one house in Cabo San Lucas is a recipe for a disaster. There will be fights, and there will be a lot of drama. However that's something Preachers' Daughters' Lolly White didn't see coming. "I expected all the girls to like me," Lolly tells me in an interview.
Lolly's entrance, which came a few days later than the majority of the girls on the show, was a grand one. With a can't-miss-her presence and a bottle of alcohol in hand, Lolly entered the house fashionably late — "I like walking in late and being the last to show up," she told me — much to the other girls' chagrin.
It wasn't until a little later on in the six-week mission trip that the house "had a problem" with Lolly. At first, it was all about getting to know each other and doing good mission work. "I've never been to Cabo," Lolly says. "So of course I wanted to go and turn up and have fun." It wasn't all about "turning up," though, for Lolly. "Also, I wanted to experience mission work. I've never been away from home, so I couldn't wait for the opportunity."
Unfortunately, things went south for Lolly's friendship with some of the girls in the house towards the end of the trip. When I initially ask her who she butt heads with the most, she says "none of the girls," but that quickly changes. "It was kind of like the whole house against Lolly," she tells me, "So I guess you can say I got into it with everybody."
But aside from building friendships — or maybe doing the opposite — with her housemates, traveling to Mexico presented Lolly with the opportunity to help others and learn a little bit more about herself along the way. "It taught me a lot that I didn't even know about myself until I actually got home," Lolly says.
But what did she learn in a house full of girls that she didn't necessarily get along with? "I'm not young Lolly anymore. I'm an adult," the 24-year-old says. "I went out there and grew up, without really knowing it." Watch Lolly start her personal journey when Preachers' Daughters returns to Lifetime on Jan. 23 at 10 p.m.
