Remember the huge life changing surprise I had?
Well… it fell through.
They didn’t pick me. :-(
It’s complete bullshit.
Anyways… since it doesn’t matter anymore, I can tell you the big secret.
I auditioned for MasterChef…. A cooking show for amateur chefs that airs on Fox.
G and I drove out to New Orleans. 6 hours in the car… just me my bestie and my nerves… oh and my tasting dish on dry ice. I made Lime grilled shrimp with corn salsa and cilantro aioli… I must say it was pretty damn tasty.
I made it through the tasting round, personality round and the on-camera interview round.
Seriously, I made it really far.
Like to the point of signing confidentiality contracts and giving me dates of taping and stipend amounts if I make it to LA. Of course they were always really careful to mention that I was still in the running and not yet been selected, but still… all of that seemed to justify getting my hopes up.
But when it came down to being on the show, they didn’t pick me.
Woe is me.
The thought of possibly winning $250,000 by just doing what I love…. And the exposure on national television…
Man this is bullshit.
So I’m disappointed. But life goes on.
There is always MasterChef 2012.
