Weekend dreamin’….. Would you go on a reality TV show? I’m curious, so I’m taking a poll. Tell me!
Would you be willing to eat bugs and take scary risks like on Survivor or Fear Factor?
Would you be willing to stress yourself and your relationship to the max travelling all over the world in Amazing Race?
Would you be willing to have surgery on Extreme Makeover?
Would you be willing to live in another house with another family for a week like on Wife Swap?
Would you be willing to work your fingers to the bone and turn your house over to strangers like on Trading Spaces?
Would you be willing to be confined to a house with a bunch of other people in a house and lie and fight like on Big Brother?
And how much would money impact your decision? Would you do a reality show if there was no guarantee of money unless you won? Would you do a reality TV show if there was an upfront compensation guaranteed?
Me and reality TV–I applied to Survivor about four years ago. I applied to Amazing Race with another writer, Mia Ryan. I also applied to While You Were Out. I was never picked for any of those shows. However, I love reality TV and wouldn’t close the door for future opportunities if something cropped up. And you??
For Survivor, you have to send in a videotape. I did the Top 10 reasons they should pick me for Survivor. My favorite line from the tape I sent in to Survivor: Reason # 5 they should pick me for Survivor–I’m a romance writer so I can tell Really Long Stories About Sex around the Survivor campfire…..
The next Survivor starts September 15th!! Survivor Guatemala is set amid Mayan ruins. Watch it with me and discuss it here!! We could play “Fantasy Survivor” with points and prizes for picking castoffs! If enough people are interested, I’ll set it up here–so speak up if you would watch and play!
