I once had one of those great afternoon conversations you get when a random phone call comes in and though you are not interested in what the person at the other end of the phone line wants from you, you just so happened to strike up a rapport and you end up talking for over an hour. Her name was Angela Brown and to be fair, I cannot remember the television show they were asking me to apply for but it was something I found outside of what I wanted to do - like a show where you get to marry a woman you have never met. Though I was technically single at the time, I had a girlfriend and I suppose it was a mixture of fear and shame that I didn't go for it.
Fast forward a couple of years and I got a call from Angela and she had a wonderful new offer. "Are you a dynamic business owner trapped in a world where it is difficult for you to shed kilos and try new ways to lose weight?" YES. "Are you looking to get professional advice and have a concentrated period where you not only lose weight but learn how to make better choices with what you eat and how you you live?" YES YES. Where do I sign?
Although I would love to go on this programme I could hear my partner's voice in the back of my head "how would you like your daughter to see you running along like a fat dumpling on television? Huh? Would that be good for her to see her father doing that? What would you have thought if your Dad had done that?" . I recoiled.
But I still want to do it. But I won't. Well, maybe. I don't know. I will run it past the B&C first.
Regardless, I promised Angela I would find her the perfect candidate. So I am posting up her flyer and I am calling out to all Australian men and women who might want to be contestants. This sounds like fun and in the end you get to be a "New You".
Thank you for taking my call today!
As mentioned, I'm a currently working for Endemol Shine Australia, a television production company based in Sydney.
We're producing a new television show called New You for Network Ten and searching for men and women, who are keen and seeking out the best ways to get fitter, loose some unwanted weight and transform their lifestyle into a much healthier one!
Would absolutely love for your readers to apply!
