how to get on tv

Be as loud and wacky as possible

Wear the loudest clothing you can find

Say quirky things and maybe do a rap

Lose all inhibitions

And generally make a bit of a tit

Out of your otherwise perfect reputation.

I make a list of ‘resolutions’ at the beginning of each year and every list for the last five years has had ‘appear on TV’ on it. These are always fun little goals like ‘read three classics’ and ‘eat strawberries and cream at Wimbledon during the tournament’. So nothing too difficult, although some of them take a bit of planning.

The TV one always seems to get away from me because I just don’t think that I’m interesting enough to get on any of the shows that I enjoy. And when I say ‘interesting’ I really mean ‘weird’.

My dad and I always sit and watch shows like Come Dine With Me and we’re not quite sure how the producers have found so many ‘interesting’ people over the years. We’re sure they must be running out of them soon, but still they come.

From years of watching these reality shows I have deduced that the key to getting on is to be as outlandish as possible. I’m just not sure that I have the guts to go on national TV and make a tit out of myself, just yet. Anyone else done it before? I’d love to know about your experience…..

Much Love

    I’ve tried out for Jeopardy four times. Two of those times (including the current season that they will start recording once it’s safe to again) they called me back for an audition. So we’ll see. Do you get that over there?

      We don’t, but we do have some really fun game shows that I’d apply for. We have one called Tipping Point and if I can find a partner I’d do Pointless. I like the dating shows too!

        I’m not the kind of person that dating shows are looking for, and I never will be. So that’s out. But I’m a trivia buff, and friends have been telling me for years that I should try out for Jeopardy.
