Marissa Reveals a Dark Secret From Her Past on 'The Glee Project' (VIDEO)

Marissa von Bleicken, 'The Glee Project'The kids of 'The Glee Project' (Sun., 9PM ET on Oxygen) took a page from the 'Glee' series literally in this week's video challenge. Each of them was to wear a sign with a word on it proclaiming their greatest insecurities. Some were more powerful than others, but perhaps no one took the challenge to heart as Marissa did.

Initially she had the word FLAWED, but after seeing Alex bravely wearing a sign reading GAY, she realized she couldn't be so vague in her choice. "It's not right for me to walk out with a sign that says FLAWED and then not really specifically address issues that I had in the past."

So she changed her sign, and in the video shoot it read ANOREXIC. "Part of me is proud of myself for mustering up the courage to be honest for once, but wearing the sign is just as bad as I thought it was gonna be."

We have a feeling that Marissa wasn't perhaps expecting a breakthrough in tackling some of her own emotional demons on a reality show, but the beauty of 'Glee' is that it gives you both those big campy musical numbers, and those smaller more vulnerable and emotional beats.
