The Casting Call is Finished!
Saturday, March 08, 2014
Wow that was an absolutely amazing experience. One of my best friends got to come with me to support me at the Extreme Weight Loss Casting Call! It was so great being able to have her there with me! So we got to the studio at 7:05 am and there was only like 11 people ahead of us. People didn't really start getting there until after 9 to almost 10 am. 10 am is actually when the casting call started. There was seriously probably less than 100 people there applying that I saw. I know that the casting call is open until 4 though.
So we have to go in groups of 8 to be interviewed. When we were sitting in line I met this really awesome lady named Rhonda. It was really great getting to know her! The whole time that we were waiting I couldn't even sit down. I maybe sat for less than 10 minutes. I actually gave my chair to Rhonda because she forgot to bring a chair. I was moving around the whole time because I just couldn't sit still! So anyways we filled out the application and then headed in. Rhonda and I were in group 2. The interview was only 15 minutes long. All we got to talk about was our name, how old we were, if we had a significant other and kids, what made us gain weight, why we want to be on the show, and what do we want to do when we get to our goal weight. 3 people before me said skydiving, which was actually what I wanted to say but I wanted to be set apart. I said that I wanted to run a marathon. Which is actually true. I think the lady liked my answer because then she asked me if I know which one I want to do, and I said that I hadn't thought about that. I also said that I would love to do one in Hawaii because I have never been there before.
I am still in shock that I actually went to the casting call! It was such an amazing experience. To be honest, I am hoping that I get on the show but I am really rooting for Rhonda. I say that because her story really touched me and also I know that for myself, whether if I get on this show or not, I am still going to lose my weight :)
I wouldn't trade that experience for the world! I had such a great time! I pray that God through the casting directors would give me favor! Thank you guys so much for being such a huge support!! It seriously means the world to me!!
