And similarly Nick -- yeah, Nick and Rose decided themselves.

Because it sounds really natural with Rose, but then when Nick did it too, I was like, "Oh, maybe that was planned." Not that I'd disliked it in terms of the flow -- it worked for me.

Well, Nick, as you can tell from the show, wasn't all that comfortable kind of being in makeup around the kids, and he wanted them to know. So when he told them, again, it was his decision, and I will tell you -- I wasn't around that day; I heard about it. I was told at the end of the day that Rose had had that experience -- they left the room, they talked about it, and they decided that Nick was going to reveal himself. But it was always up to each of the family members how they were going to reveal, when they were going to reveal, what they wanted to do, and it all kind of happened very organically. You'll see Renee dealing with that.

Can you tell me about anything that didn't work, that we didn't see, that you might have tried?

Uh…I will say that certainly there were days when the makeup was not as successful as other days -- the makeup process is a very human process, as you can tell from the show there were many many people involved in applying the makeup every day, and some days went better than others. And also we were doing this in the dead of summer, and sometimes the heat didn't help, and sometimes Rose's skin…you know, there were just so many things, the Sparks and the Wurgels worked so hard, and there's no question this was a stressful environment as you can tell from the show, and some days that impacts things, so it's not like every day everything was in peak form, but that was certainly to be expected, and it was something that Keith VanderLaan, the makeup designer, and I had discussed many times, like, you know, this isn't going to work all the time, there are going to be some days we do our best, we put the makeup on and it doesn't look like anything but that people are walking around wearing a lot of makeup, so some days we would just say, "You know what, let's make it an early day," just because we felt like the next day we'd do better.

I've been pretty impressed by the makeup.

Well, the stuff you see on the show, of course --

-- it's like a hundredth of what they have to go through.

Exactly. In fact, it's one two-hundredth.

Can you talk a little bit about the decision to have them all live together? Was that built in from the beginning?
