Are you still in the business of making people's wildest dreams come true? I have thought about this a lot the past 10 years because I wanted to make sure I got it right and didn't request anything I would later regret—like asking for an unlimited supply of nail polish. I wasn't a big dreamer in 2004 ;)
But here I am, almost 27, and I can say with confidence that my wildest dream would be getting to be a contestant on Survivor. AND BEFORE YOU SAY NO.... please remember, Oprah, that you are in fact...Oprah! You can make it happen. How does it feel to have that kind of power?
Besides the fact that you're Oprah and with that name comes complete and total power, you also know Tyler Perry. And Tyler Perry knows Jeff Probst. And Jeff Probst is the host of Survivor!
My desire to be a contestant on the show isn't for the money. Truly. Not that I would turn down the million, but I so badly desire to just play the game!
Do you remember when you interviewed Elie Wiesel and afterward you said you didn't do it for the ratings or for your viewers, but you did it for you? Because you wanted so badly to talk to him?
That's how I feel about Survivor. I just want to play. For me, for the fun, for the adventure.
I would even be willing to donate the money to your Angel Network! Okay, most of it. Can I pay off my school loans and maybe get a few new bottles of nail polish first?
I know what you're probably thinking, "Is this girl as awesome as she sounds??"
Short answer: Yes. I am. Some would argue a reality show of my life would do well. But I am too humble to accept those offers.
I know there isn't a secret formula to win the game; all different kinds of strategies and personality types have won. However, without sounding like every other hopeful contestant, I know I have what it takes to win the game.
I often tell people how you've changed my life. When asked how people don't seem satisfied with, "I know about proper jean sizes because of her!" I would love to tell them you are the reason I got on Survivor. But I am forever grateful you knocked sense into me. I had been trying to squeeze into 2 sizes too small for many years.
And if I haven't convinced you thus far I have one final plea:
I remember you saying that one time someone told you they knew in their soul they should do something that you weren't sure about but you said, "I can't argue with someone's soul."
In my soul I know I should be on Survivor. Can you help make that happen?
They are currently casting the upcoming season so do not delay!
I have applied several times, I've sent in the application and the videos, I've begged, prayed, hoped, and plead to anyone that would listen, and tweeted the creator Mark Burnett, oh maybe 5000 times. Until I hear from you I'll be running laps singing, "I surrender all...I surrender all...."
See what I did there? :)
