While my graduate applications are not going well, at least the casting directors are not bored. I was contacted via phone surprisingly in March just a bit after my last blog post.
While this sounded good, it was for a family in Georgia and my entire family is scattered. Every person she asked about was in a different state. She was interested in me being a hypnotherapist, she said she wanted to keep my information and I agreed because I am partnered and have kids but I have to live as a single person. It’s horrible.
I’m sad I could not get free publicity for my practice.
Am I horrible that I am thinking this way?

Anyone who knows me knows I absolutely LOVED watching Queer Eye for the straight guy so imagine my surprise when a casting director contacted me as they were looking for a recently transitioned ftm who might need some help. I already had applied for a reality show so this was another one, a better one.
Unfortunately they were mostly looking for Atlanta area, but the casting director became incredibly excited because I have such a unique story given I am also a hypnotherapist who is about to open their own practice. How many times does that come up? I had a lot of fun doing the interview and since I already knew a little bit about the television industry and what people look for, I was able to give them the best information that I could to help make their life easier. I had a lot of fun doing the interview although getting everything together to make their life easier was a big pain in the butt. I didn’t get chosen because I was a little out of their driving range. I was so bummed. I had already envisioned all of the wonderful things I was going to learn and how wonderful they were going to make my house and how great it would be for the practice but it was not to be because of the distance.
Whatcha going to do?

This is one of those “Replacement Things to do” which replaces “Throw a House Party When your Parents are Out” as by the time I got the book, I had not lived with my parents in many years. Since I never was left alone, there is no way I could have done that so I replaced it with something which is a different level of reckless… “Apply to be on a reality TV show.”
Most of those shows just aren’t that interesting although I enjoyed watching Mad Mad House and would have loved to be on that. My partner however says because I am so open about the weird stuff that went on in that house (the only alt that I was squicked over was the Primitive with all the body modifications), I would not have been picked because they want people who were going to be uncomfortable with everyone.
I also really liked Ghost Hunters Academy which I would have also been very comfortable with, but they wouldn’t have liked me because I am “sensitive.”
So I have been looking on Reality Wanted for something that I can apply to. As I just restarted college and I love to travel, I applied to something via All3Media on college kids that want to study abroad and travel I do not think I have the ability to get in but it is something that looks like it could be fun! So far I haven’t heard back but I will let you know if I do!
Would you be wiling to apply to a reality TV show for any reason?
