Well, that's great. What kind of stories did you do with people?
Well, you know, we got the whole gamut of dreams, and everything from a Jewish rapper who wanted to make a music video for his mother to prove to his mother that he was legit, and that he didn't have to be a lawyer or a doctor -- here we are going back to the lawyer thing again -- but, he didn't have to be a lawyer or a doctor just because he was Jewish, that he could be a rapper. To a woman who wanted to put on her own burlesque show, to a guy who wanted to make a movie in three days, to a guy who wanted to ride a bull for eight seconds, because he had an opportunity five years ago and he never got on the bull...a guy who wanted to face his fear of sharks...I've just done one on a guy who spent three days going to a wrestling school to become a wrestler.
The whole point of the show is that we don't do anything to help these people other than clear their schedule for three days and give them a little bit of money. And people have said, "How come so little money? How come so little time?" And we're like, well, because most people don't have a lot of money, and most people don't have a lot of time. And the whole point is, what you can achieve with a small amount of time and a small amount of money.
So you don't want to create a situation where people will say, "Well, sure, if somebody came and gave me a month off of work and a million dollars, I could do..."
Exactly! And the whole point is that our show is really meant to be the antithesis to a lot of other reality shows, because we're trying to say...stop concentrating on what you don't have, and what you can't do, and really start to think about what do you have and what can you do? And so it really is about playing up that there is...if you use your imagination as your currency, it's better in the long run than looking into your wallet to try to pull out a wad of cash to make a better and richer life.
And, you know, I don't want to make it sound too preachy, but I think the whole message in the media right now is...you deserve a bigger house, you deserve a bigger car, you need money to be happy...
