OMG we’re on TV!.
For a few years I receive emails from Stone-Hill Media. They are always searching for audience or candidates for television shows. So in January I received an email that Helder TV in cooperation with VIVA and NET5 are curious about Dutch couples for a new TV show. How did they meet? What is the distribution of tasks at home? Who does most of the household chores and how often do they have sex?
“Wouldn’t it be nice to send an email? Maybe they will pick us for the show!!” I said to Gertjan.
Gertjan liked it as well. So I send an email about who we are. That we are a gay couple who are getting married in February and will move to Spain after the wedding. Of course I also tell them how funny we are and how adorable (haha). I had to send them some pics! (see below)
Suddenly one week later Floor from Helder TV called us. We were both at home so I put my telephone on speaker. We had a lovely conversation with Floor for almost 45 minutes. At the end it turned to be our first screening! Floor asked us to send a video. Which we did. Gertjan was very pleased he finally could use his new bought mini Sony Cam. So we made it in one take and we decided to send it right away, because this was just who we are. Click on the photo below to see our casting video:
A few days later the phone was ringing again. I was driving the car and Gertjan was next to me. So it automatically went to the speaker in the car:
“Haaaai this is Floor again! We loved your video. We showed it to NET5 and the were very enthusiastic. So you guys are in VIVA PILLOW TALK!”
After we hang up we could not stop laughing.
So finally the big day: they came for the recordings of the show. We both bought a new outfit. Just hoping we don’t look fat on TV. They always say that on TV you looks 10 kilo’s more! (aaaaaghrrr)
The recording team showed up at 11 in the morning. We both were a little bit nervous, but 11:00 is too early to grab a glass of wine!
They started redecorating our house, because they of course wanted the best shots! So we had to sit in the middle of our living, in our love-seat.
For almost 4 hours they were asking questions about our personal life. Who is doing the cleaning, how we met, how much we love each other, about farting and about sex. So hopefully they treat us kind with the last subject and they will not fool around when editing the show. But the whole day was so much fun, so they have to treat us nice! (we hope so, hahaha)
From this week the official trailers are shown on NET5. And yes, we are in it. Yesterday the first text messages arrived on Ibiza. “OMG are you guys on TV soon? Haha…”
There is also an official announcement on NU.NL.
