So, I went on a reality show... and it actually premieres on national television tonight! I feel like i'm in uncharted territory--I don't quite know what to expect or what will come of this.
What I do know is that the entire experience has been full of unexpected surprises--like filming in London at the same set where Star Wars was being filmed! I not only challenged myself as a baker and a person, but I got to share this adventure with a wonderful group of people who became friends. I'm terribly excited to share this journey with you through the lens of the production and editing of a television show. But I'm even more excited to get to share my reactions on this blog!
It's funny because I certainly never thought I'd be going on a "reality show." I'm a huge reality tv fan, and I'm certainly not shy, but the the idea of exposing everything--the good and the bad--on television just seemed crazy. Yet, here I am. And when I had the opportunity to audition for this show, I dropped everything (literally!) and decided to go for it.
What happened next was a whirlwind of events, and I somehow found myself in London staring into the giant white tent that is such an iconic symbol of the flagship show of the franchise--The Great British Bake Off.
10 Contestants, 6 episodes, and who-knows-how-much butter, eggs, flour and sugar! I won't give too much away, because you will get to see so much of the fun on tonight's two-hour premiere on ABC, 9pm EST.
Stay tuned and I'll be sharing some not-yet-seen photos after the first episode airs!
