I think you mentioned she was a near thing on a previous show. What was it? cooking again?

So she didn't say anything about not being ready to leave the hairdressing business yet or that she'd enjoyed her time there, it was a rewarding experience and she'd learned a lot? Pretty sure you have to get those cliches down pat before being considered for any of the reality programs.

Haha, she was previously going to be on Married At First Sight, and use it to promote the self-help book she was going to write, but she bailed from MAFS before filming started because:
a) she didn't like the thought of the surfer dude from Perth (with 3 kids) when she'd asked for a military man;
b) she didn't like the thought of being paid only $120/day.
One of the tabloids used her defection and that of another lady, to write a magazine story about "Runaway Brides"!

I'll take $120 a day to act like an exhilarated knob on tv, who's constantly thrilled whenever some new surprise (that really isn't a surprise) is thrown at me. "Oh hey look, it's that celebrity chef that's only been seen on the last ten seasons of this show that we totally weren't expecting to see this season".

Actually no I won't.

Didn't we try and get on The Amazing Race once? Obviously we weren't noteworthy because we never got contacted by any of the other reality franchises so must have been immediately dumped from their database.

We don't have crazy arguments with eachother. We can navigate. We aren't supermodels (at least - one of us isn't) it just wasn't to be!!

My cousin Hansie went on a show with his girlfriend Courtney and they said it was horrible. We were all in hospital and the hospice to say goodbye to a family member and all the staff were fawning over them and randoms asking autographs and it was at the worst time and they had to be all nice despite the situation they were in.

So no thanks - the notoriety is not worth all the money in the world.

When he was at the ABS my father was talking about fronting up at the Big Brother house with a Census form as a publicity stunt for the Census. Wish he'd gone through with it.

Maybe that could be a condition of being on one of the programs.

"So to get on this cooking/dating/surviving show, you have to name at least one previous contestant from this album of 1000 people, who've all been on at least one show."
tRicky: Ummmm....

Blair, don't you have to complete your name as part of the Census? Might have been tough if they were wearing the wrong pants.

They've certainly got all their bases covered with that group.
