This year, I was able to achieve one of my grandest dreams…To star on Wipeout!!!
It was a long process between driving to Burbank for my audition, back again for a physical, once more to drop off signed papers and finally for the filming in Santa Clarita!! However, as those who have seen the episode know, it was all totally worth it.
The Question people have asked most often is: “did it hurt as much as it looked like?” The short answer is..yes! Haha! But I recovered pretty quickly.
It was quite thrilling to make it through the qualifier although a bit traumatizing due to things constantly popping up/out at me and knocking me off the high platforms into the cold water or mud! The worst part was probably the sand in my eyes and contacts.
Highlights included being able to see the behind-the-scenes action and production – as a photographer, that was super fun. Also, meeting Jill was quite exciting as I didn’t know she was back this season when I showed up and I had always wanted to meet her. I would LOVE to be her wedding photographer!!!!
Here are some of my favorite moments from the show and a few photos!
If you haven’t seen the episode, it will be on Hulu for a little longer here: http://www.hulu.com/watch/516708
