I nailed my camera interviews and kept my composure. I came to find out I have been the company favorite for a few weeks now.

It's going to be shot in LA, 5 weeks, starting in mid/end January. I do get some payment for each week of the show which is normally not done, so that is kind of nice.

I got the call tonight, not even 12 hours after getting back that they can't be official yet without the Networks final say, but she said the words "it's no inside secret that you are ridiculously close to being a done deal with everyone involved here".
How awesome! Very happy for you.

Is your wife cool with bailing you out of jail for getting into a bar fight with the biker dude because you slept with the tattooed girl he thought was a slam-dunk for him to hit first?

Yes.

Hence me trying to absorb as much experience in welding as I can get and quick. I have not touch a welder in 10 years.

The goal of the show is to take my drawings and then modify an current GM car to look like the drawing

LOL, not that kind of show. Everyone is a bit white collared and coming from design backgrounds with good jobs or owning their own businesses.

My wife was ok with the fact that I had young girls hitting on me in LA doing my makeup and photoshoots. But for the 5 weeks she might come out with me and work remote from the hotel so she doesnt miss me lol.

My wife and I just had a chuckle about her watching Project Runway on the TV in the bedroom and me watching "Revving Up" (is that the name of the show?) on the TV in the living room.

No, it does not.

What they do not allow for is giving information about the outcome, should I be cast, letting anyone know when I am eliminated and if I or who wins. That is the BIG no no. They can come after me for $1m in damages if that happens.

In the meantime, they are perfectly happy for me to drum up interest on message boards and have people support me.
