I'm not really into reality shows...Survivor? Are you kidding most boring one going..LOL and there is so much backstabbing between members. The only show I do watch and it really gets to me many times is the 'Extreme Makeover' one...some of the stories of the families involved are so tragic, I wind up crying at the end when that family gets a new home and wow, some of the new homes are fantastic. So gee, I sure wouldn't mind a Makeover myself..but it would entail having a home which I don't have. Do they have makeovers for apartment dwellers or at least relocate a person to a better one that they presently live in?? Then I'd be all for it myself

I know they need to do an Extreme Makeover type show for non-homeowners. Maybe buying the property they live on or something. Most of those shows are boring - do you watch that HGTV show where you win a home - you can enter every day. And you can watch them choose the site, construct the home and online you can go on a tour of the home - I'd like to be on that show - because I won! Of course with taxes I'd either share the home (you're not allowed to rent it or have it as a B&B) or sell it and buy my dream home - or build it.

I guess my choice would be Extreme Makeover. I wouldn't want to live with a bunch of strangers, rough it in the wild, I don't need to lose a bunch of weight, I own a house but I don't live in it, and I can't sing or dance either. Looks like that narrows it down to free plastic surgery! I am too poor and cheap to spend that much money on myself, so the free plastic surgery is good!

Thats the one I would choose too. Last year you could send in audition tapes in January so I may just go for it!

I am a very private person but I would love to go on Miami Ink or L.A. Ink.The problem is the tattoo I want is so easy and small that it wouldn't make good t.v.

For some reason - maybe your screen name - I always expect you to be conservative and you always suprize me. Joking about the escort service - if you had to do a job you hated... and now this tatoo thing! :)

If I became a conservative my mom would come down from heaven and haunt me.I am a open minded democrat in the middle leaning to the left so much I am about to fall.

Well, I wouldn't have enough talent to do something like Project Runway. I don't have the stamina or the meaness to be on Survivor, but I would like to be on Shear Genius, which is on Bravo. It's a bunch of high profile hair stylists competing for an internship with the big wigs, a lot of money, and some other prizes. When I was a child I did my friends hair, and they loved what I would do. I had one mother come up to me and actually thank me for changing the way her daughter did her hair. Weird, huh. : )

I am not interested in being on any of them. I like where I am in life and do not have aspirations in any of those directions. When I think about them and observe the frenetic energetic pace of them my whole being shudders. Ty and his screeching voice with the proverbial megaphone...ugh! I am past the age of being accepted on any of the Idol or model ones...and I do not want a million dollars enough to be separated from my hubby, our home, friends, work I love doing, our pets to try out for survivor or Amazing Race. Even thinking about it has a disruptive element to it I have come to trust my intuitive knowing about things I could get involved in. So that is my answer to another good question. Take care, Raia

I wouldn't be on any reality show for multiple reasons. I probably couldn't stand any of them for a second. I bet I'd be disruptive on a good number of shows too. For other shows, I couldn't look or be fake enough to be on them. If I had to pick one and give it a long shot... maybe Iron Chef. I might get destroyed easy, but it'd be the show least likely to drive me off the deep end.

None of them, mainly because there is nothing really reality about them. They take the final footage and edit to their liking to creat drama and interest for the viewer. I don't think I would like to be portrayed as someone I'm not. I seriously think they do this to people, and without their knowledge. But I don't see how they get away with it if this is the case. I've read many article's on these show's by the participant's and how they didn't say this or that. Aww sh!t, who know's what's real and what's not about reality TV and the people that play the roles! LOL Bay Lay Gray xx
