Actually, you won't become the star of the show, but you may have the opportunity to become part of the show. Well, kind of.
It's kind of confusing, because everything is still all up in the air.
John and Don McLemore own Masterbuilt, the local company that designs and manufactures outdoor cooking devices like the turkey fryer. They are now making some of these cooking appliances electric, which means you can actually fry a turkey in your kitchen.
I've seen them do it.
They have talked about becoming hosts of a cooking show for years and finally, it's time. You know they are the darlings of the folks who watch and buy from QVC. And they've done some infomercials as well. I know you've seen them late at night, because I have.
They will shoot a pilot for a food-related show that will be on a network that cannot be named at this time. Really. They won't tell me. And I can be very persuasive.
The pilot doesn't even have a name. Well, if it did, they're not telling me.
I do know this: They need five or six energetic people with great personalities to come to audition to be part of the show on Saturday.
Auditions begin at 9 a.m. at Masterbuilt headquarters, 1 Masterbuilt Court, which is off Milgen Road.
I'd take a current resume and a head shot if I were you, just in case.
You'll get about 30 seconds to wow the producers, who are coming in from Los Angeles. They are Jay Bienstock and Eugene Young of Bienstock Young Media. They have been involved in TV shows like "Survivor," "The Apprentice," "Bachelor Pad," "Deal or No Deal" and "Family Feud."
The morning auditions are 9 a.m.-noon. There's a lunch break between noon-1 p.m. And the auditions will start again at 1 p.m. and go on until they see everyone.
After the last person is seen, they'll call back the ones they really like and make their final choices.
So if you really want to do be on TV and you have a great personality, then here's your chance.
Good luck, or should I say, Break a leg!
