(Okay, so it's been over a month since my last post. I'm sorry. But this contest will definitely make up for it. I've got a lot more coming up, too!)
I LOVE VH1's The Pickup Artist. I really do. I've seen both seasons one and two, and am ready for a season three. Can you imagine my surprise when I showed up as a background actor to the set of independent film, 'In World War' and recognized the most recent winner of one of my most favorite reality shows, ever? (Other favorite reality shows include Millionaire Matchmaker, the first season of Making the Band and Project Runway, of course.) Can you imagine my glee when I noticed that he was also sporting a pretty decent man purse? I was bit overcome, really.
I'm fairly new to this background acting thing and didn't expect to recognize anyone remotely recognizable in this local production, and I just didn't have a plan for how to react for such a double whammy. So I chilled out a bit, and just took some time to make sure that it was really Simeon from 'The Pickup Artist Season 2' (it was.) And I thought to myself, how random that just a few weeks ago I was watching him win this reality show on TV (well, on the iMac since we hardly ever watch things on the TV anymore) and now here he was standing in front of me. I kept thinking to myself, 'Is he going to try and pickup on someone HERE?', 'Is he going to be totally different in person, than from the show?', 'Should I tell him that I recognize him?', 'Will I get an opportunity to interview him for the blog?'
