(The aforementioned is an edited voice mail message that Usedcarsalesman received and he is simply using it to kick-off this post).
Usedcarsalesman gets a call from "X-woman" from the Blind Date show. Apparently, they are starting to shoot something called Julie Gets Married, which he was told was supposed to be like The Bachelorette.
So, after Usedcarsalesman gets this call, he decides to go ahead and investigate what this new show is all about. Julie Gets Married obviously isn't airing yet, so he decide to look at some of the producer's other work that is on: namely, Blind Date. He checks his local TV listings and he sees that Blind Date is on at 1AM (Prime-time! :) on LA's KCOP.
In the early-morning episode he was watching, they matched up some poor schmo with an ex-Playmate and "pressed record." Wasn't pretty. But, after a few minutes, Usedcarsalesman did start to laugh his ass off. And he'll admit, he did suddenly develop respect for reality television and its entertainment value. It was kind of "twisted" like that kid who's interested in using a magnifying glass to smoke ants with the sun's rays.
So, did Usedcarsalesman ever interview for that show? Hey, he digs watching train wrecks too, but it doesn't mean he'd want to be in one :)
