    Default I am going to be on TV again!!!!



    You will have to excuse me, I have been holding this news in for months and am a little excited. A little over 7 months to be exact. And some know that I haven't done a great job at it. But after having to sign a NDA with a HUGE penalty, I figured keeping my mouth shut was for the best. Any way, if you know me, have met me, or have even read anything I have posted online, you can easily see I am good at making an ass outta myself. That and that I LOVE vehicles, of all shapes, sizes, and types. And someone at BBC America thought that would be a perfect combo for an episode of their new car based reality show, "Mud, Sweat, and Gears". Here is a description of the show:


    " BBC AMERICA’s Mud, Sweat and Gears is a brand new competitive car show which hurtles onto screens in the New Year. Each week hosts Tom ‘Wookie’ Ford and Jonny Smith captain a team of two car nuts and go head-to-head to transform everyday vehicles. They have 24 hours to mutate, supersize and reconstruct – once transformed, the vehicles are raced in three extreme missions involving head-to-head sprints, timed challenges and stunts, lots of stunts. The missions are daring, adventurous, fun, and competitive – and all tied to different episode themes rolling out each week. Mud, Sweat and Gears premieres Monday, January 26 at 10:00pm ET on BBC AMERICA.



    "

    And a couple links:

    http://www.bbcwpressroom.com/bbc-ame...d-sweat-gears/

    http://www.bbcamerica.com/mud-sweat-gears/

    I can't really say much still because of the NDA, but I hope to be able to share with you all my full experiences once it has aired. I will say that it was a blast to film, and the two host, Tom Ford and Jonny Smith, were great. And our location for the shoot was downright awesome. It was truly an experience I won't forget. Heck, people all over the world will get to watch me make an idiot of myself. How many can say that?

    The episode I will be in is set to air March 9th at 8pm MST. And I hope you will all be able to tune in and get a good laugh at my expense. Can't wait to see how they portray myself and my good buddy who was my teammate. Hopefully not too much like the a..holes we are in real life

    I would like to host a small viewing party on the night of the air date, and am searching for a great venue. Needs to have plenty of TV's and access to food and alcohol and be close to Longmont/Boulder area. Anyone know of a decent spot? I was thinking of calling the newish Cinebarre in Louisville to see if they could accommodate. Thinking a movie theater could be a neat setting. Any other thoughts?

    Very cool! I'm excited for you! Maybe you could look into the cost of renting a VFW club or something for the night(???) Invite your guests and make it a pot-luck food situation. (I imagine most halls will not let you bring your own liquor because of their license). But I'm sure they can arrange for renting big screens etc. and a cash bar. (But I don't know). I went to a surprise party for an old friend at the VFW in Westminster a couple years ago and it was a blast.

    Thanks everyone. Guess I can post this at least since it's on their site now. Here is the rundown our my episode:

    "Spy
    Season 1 | Episode 7 | Original Airdate: March 9th, 2015 | 10:00PM

    Jonny Smith and Tom ‘Wookie’ Ford lead two teams and build their visions of the ultimate spy cars. Jonny, joined by car-crazy fabricators Tino and Aaron from Colorado, is all about the style, power and mystique. Wookie, however, thinks that gadgets rule, which is perfect for his team of high-tech brainiacs Erica and Jeff from San Francisco. They race in three intense spy-themed missions, where Jonny takes the disguise and ambush theme to the extreme!"

    make sure to post where the "viewing Party" is at. I'd like to sit in. Check with the red zone, they should be fine if the local sports that day suck

    Thanks again everyone. I am really excited to see how we are portrayed. When you are mic'ed 100% of the time and the cameras are just rolling constantly, they really get a lot to work with. I do have some, very little though, faith in the production company. The guys they chose as host were perfect, and are really good people. I am lucky enough now to consider both of them friends and have keep in contact with them ever since the filming.

    I do however think it is important to state that you shouldn't believe everything you see on TV!

    Defending yourself already??? I think we're smart enough to know that a lot of it is probably an act!!! (Or an edited form of "acting")! Looking forward to some good entertainment one way or the other.

    I actually have a HD projector just sitting in my office collecting metal dust (that's gotta be good for it). Also have the cable lines run out there. Problem lies in lack of screen or empty wall. And that I don't actually get BBC America... Also lack of space, over booked schedule, lack of decent parking, completely filthy conditions, and other reasons, I don't want to hold something like this at the shop. Thank you for the thought though, I really do appreciate it!

    Thanks again guys! :beer: Still searching for a great venue if there are any more ideas!

    It was a blast to be a part of. Really wasn't ever nervous. But now I have some butterflies. Never like seeing myself on film.

    They finally put the first trailer/commercial for the show on You Tube. I also have the press photos from each episode that I will try and post some of later when I find some more time. But any way, I hope the series turns out half as good as they promise it will. The hosts have a great sense of humor and are all about giving each challenge their very all.

    Here is a look at the commercial:
