“Hi guys, as most of you know by now, tonight is the final episode of Victorious. In honor of this I thought I’d write a letter about my journey on Nickelodeon and most of all my gratitude to all of you.
“It all started when I was twelve years old and auditioned for a role on a show called Zoey 101 for the part of Lola. I was cast as a series regular on the second season. I knew my life was going to change in many ways, but I didn’t know then that that role on Zoey 101 would lead me to almost eight years on ‘Nickelodeon’ (all my teenage years). I remember Dan Schneider approaching me and my Mom about giving me the starring role of my own show. I remember discussing the premise of what the show would be, like it was yesterday. I remember discussing what we would name it and him calling me one day and saying, ‘I have it, it’s going to be called Victorious‘. He was so excited, because he thought it was perfect. I remember him saying, ‘see, it has your name in the title, along with your character’s name (Tori) and you’re character’s ‘Victorious‘ because she makes it into this really cool school.’ I thought great, I loved it. From that point on, it’s been an incredible ride.”
In tonight’s all-new episode “The Bad Roommate,” Andre (Thomas) is fed up with living with his grandmother and calls on Tori (Justice) for help. But when a frustrated Andre moves into the Vega house so he can concentrate on his music, these best friends quickly realize they don’t make the best roommates.
Meanwhile, Jade (Elizabeth Gillies) discovers an unflattering picture of herself on the internet, and conspires to take it down.
“The Bad Roommate” premieres Saturday, January 5th @ 8PM ET/PT on Nickelodeon.
