Every so often when I write something specific about a real person, I sit back, reread it and go “Wow, that sounds really mean.” And then I hit submit/publish because I know that if I think about it too long, I’ll start to feel really bad and probably not go through with it. Making a video about real people and what I think of them was very similar except in the days it took to edit the video, I had so much more time to think about what I said and feel bad about it. I mean…obviously not too bad because I’m still letting you guys see it. But just know that I realize I’m not a good human and I’m fine with you thinking that too.
The powers-that-be over at The Score have chosen their Top 24 contestants who will go to Gillette Drafted boot camp and compete for a spot in the Top 6 who will actually appear on the reality show Drafted. I did my own Top 24 predictions a few weeks ago and am happy to say that our of 19 spots (5 were given golden tickets ahead of time) I got 6 names right. Out of hundreds of videos, that’s kind of impressive. Shut up.
Unsurprisingly, when I read through the names of who were chosen to go to boot camp, I was a little disagreeable about a few select people. Some of my favourite auditioners didn’t get chosen and that irked me. So much so that I felt it necessary to make a video about the five that I really thought didn’t deserve a spot. Either because of a particular incident (coughGUMGATEcough) or just because they seemed more nervous than other hopefuls.
The video (guest starring my roommate Marni and her anniversary balloons) is below. Feel free to make fun of the One Direction pillow that makes an appearance.
