It’s finally available for all of you to gawk at! My network television debut on House Hunters International. The episode follows my friend, Matt Gibson, a blogger and travel writer as he makes the big move from Cranbook, British Columbia, Canada to Tainan, Taiwan. And me? I play the friend “Jeannie”, who tours the potential apartments with him and helps him pick the best home. I’m generous like that. It originally aired on March 5 and being stuck in China, I haven’t even watched it yet! Was told by those who did watch that I call Matt cheap and giggle a lot (okay, maybe I had one drink or two before the shoot).
It really happened by accident. I was on my way to Taiwan to visit my friend and colleague, Matt Gibson, when he asked me the weirdest question by email. “Would you be interested in being on TV with me?” I don’t even own one anymore. I got rid of it long before embarking on my travels. Then I found out just what kind of TV this was. It was for House Hunters International. I confess much on this website, so here it is. I had no idea what House Hunters is. To me, reality TV is tantamount to bottom feeder television. I’ve gotten sucked into a few shows here and there, for mindless fun. Season one of America’s Top Model. Season three or four of American Idol. The one show I forgive daily is Project Runway. I love fashion and creativity, so the fact that the contestants actually create something beautiful (or grotesque, dependant on the concept) is worth watching.
