My First Reality Show

I got to try my hand at reality show hosting earlier this month and had a blast. My business unit held a dual-location conference that included "So You Think You Can Invent." Half the contestants and judges were in California and the other half were on the other side of the Atlantic, all green screened together. The European host and I handed the action back and forth.

I made half-sheet prompt cards with the show logo on the back, just like Tom Bergeron uses on Dancing with the Stars, and picked a bright colored dress with a belt, so there'd be a place to attach the microphone battery pack. If this tech gig doesn't work out, maybe I'll try for reality TV next.

Wish me luck for tomorrow. I'm presenting for an ISO audit in the morning, acting as a panelist on product lifecycle at a conference over lunch, and shooting two product videos in the afternoon. And eating lots of orange foods to fight off being sick and probably a bit of residual jet lag from the nine hour time change. Wheee, adrenaline!

It's too late to say good luck, so instead I'll say I hope it went well!

And I think you'd make an excellent reality TV host.
