This just in: Jeff Daly has pitched and written a one-sheet description of a reality television show!
Those of you who know me, are SHOCKED! I loathe most reality television to the point where I once declared on a phone conversation that “anyone having anything to do with reality TV should be rounded up, shipped to an island and the island should be vaporized with a barrage of nuclear bombs”. I often go on these rants, but this time the voice on the other side of the phone said “You know I was on Survivor, right?”.
JD Googled. JD confirmed. JD was uncharacteristically speechless.
Don’t worry. She has a great sense of humor and we have since become great friends. I only hate her because she disproves my theory that all reality people are fake, soulless, evil creatures that are to be avoided at all costs. Yeah, I have to admit it, she’s pretty cool. That’s the only exception right? No.
- My own sister was on season 2 of Big Brother, so is it in my DNA??? Noooooooooooo!
- When I started managing the apartment building that I currently live in (www.collisapartments.com – currently have a 2BR/2BA avail), one of my sister’s Big Brother housemates lived here, so is it fate?? Nooooooooooooooooo!
- Oh that’s not all: One of my good friends was on The Bachelor. I’ve met several Survivors from my friend mentioned above. Since I’ve flocked together, am I de facto a bird of a feather? Noooooooo.
I still despise reality television and I even take it so far as to question the intelligence of anyone who watches that lowest form of entertainment. Yes, I judge those who partake in the viewing of reality. I’m not perfect, I know…but at LEAST I don’t watch reality! (FYI – I am cracking myself up right now)
So how did I get to a place where I am pushing my own reality show idea? Well, I do love documentaries and I like to think that what I’m doing is more of a docu-series with some positivity where personal growth is not only on display but inspired in those that watch.
Wish me luck!
BONUS, TOP SECRET INFORMATION THAT CAN NEVER BE SHARED WITH ANYONE:
This is really hard for me to say out loud….which is why I am typing it. I actually DO watch a reality television show. I have been lured by “Undercover Boss”. It appeals to the business side of me. It documents something that I think should be done by more CEO’s on a regular basis and it is positive in nature.
