I just returned from my 9th year speaking at the South By Southwest Interactive conference in Austin, Texas. One thing I heard often was, “What?! You have a show on NBC.com? What the…!!? Um, I mean… ‘That’s great!'”
This video explains a little bit about how my hosting role happened.
The truth is, it was only when I stopped trying to get on a show that I was in the right place to be on one.
(Video includes actual audition footage. The adorable laughter you hear is Mickipedia.)
Have YOU ever tried so hard to win something that you ended up losing yourself? (PLEASE COMMENT ON NBC.com site!)
