How many of you watch reality TV? Any show, doesn’t matter which one. Have you ever thought, “Man, that would be so great to be on that show! Wish I could do it!” I like Survivor, Dancing With the Stars, American Idol and The Apprentice (Celebrity and the regular version).
I’ve always thought Survivor was hard and as much as I’d love to do the challenges and meet Jeff Probst, there’s no way I could survive like that! First off, I need to eat! If I miss a meal or even eat late, I end up with a headache, I get the shakes and I’m crabby! Second, I don’t think I could be as cut throat as you need to be on that show. 39 days is too long to stab people in the back while lying to their face! American Idol would be neat to be on, but I can’t sing like those contestants can. I also need to have the feisty attitude going to want to have all eyes on me. The Apprentice just scares me! I know nothing about business management like that so I’d be in way over my head.
Dancing With the Stars is the one show that I would try out for if given the chance. I’ve always wanted to learn how to dance, I love those pro’s and it would be awesome to get made up like that just once! To have your hair and make-up professionally done, to have a costume custom-made for you…that alone would make me feel like a star. Since I’ve started watching, I’ve always thought they should throw one ‘regular joe’ into the mix for fun. A regular joe can’t dance any worse than some of those celebrities! Well…someone over at DWTS or ABC or Dove read my mind! Dove decided they needed a way to promote their new body wash so they came up with a little contest. Submit your 60 second video (of yourself in a towel or tank top from the waist up no less) telling why you love the new Dove product (or Dove in general) and DWTS, and you could win a spot to dance on the season finale!!!! One lucky winner gets 1 week of lessons (up to 8 hours a day) with one of the pro’s to perfect a dance that will air during the finale and showcase your hot new look from Dove. Well, hello!!!!!! Here’s my big break!!!!!!
So, after some in-my-own-head deliberating, I decided what the hell. I’m going to submit a video! You can’t win if you don’t try right?! Ugh, easier said then done! 60 seconds seems like forever sometimes, but when you have to cram a bunch of info in and make it memorable, 60 seconds isn’t enough. After many takes, I finally settled on one to submit. And then I filled out the app, uploaded my video and hit the ‘send’ button. Holy crap, I really just did that! I just entered a contest! I’d never done that before!
Have you ever tried out to be on a reality show or even a game show? What were the outcomes and would you do it again? I’m still waiting for you to pick me, Dove, but I haven’t heard anything so I’m assuming it’s a no Shucks, I thought it was a sure thing!
