Brush with Fame game Monday!!!!Joe Rogan--Fear Factor and Ultimate Fighting

In the summer of 2003, my cousin and her family came for a visit and we decided to drive to Las Vegas!!!! Upon entering the parking lot of our Hotel, it appeared to me that some sort of Movie or tv show was being filmed!!!! After inquiring about what it was, we found out if was FEAR FACTOR!!!!The first night we stayed up late watching them film the contestants in a tank of water with Piranhas in it, they shot take after take, the contestants were NOT in any danger as we watched them feed the Piranhas!!!!!The next day, the Producers were walking around the casino rounding up people to be along side the rope area as the cheering section!!! They selected some people known as the "Beautiful People" as they were called, our daughter was chosen as this lucky section, my cousin Julie and I practically begged to be included in this group, But NOPE, they wanted Young, Blonde Beautiful girls!!!!!
In this part of the show, they were to select a number on the Roulette wheel and that dtermined how many Amazon Spiders they were to eat, based on a bet???? All I know is the girl contestant ate about 3 bugs in about 6 hours!!!!! She had all night long!!!!!!! Wow!!!! I have an entire new Respect or lack there of for Reality T.V.!!!!!!!She sure wiggled and screamed while eating those spiders though!!!!
My BEAUTIFUL Daughter!!!!!And She sure is inside and out!!!!! LOVE HER!!!!!!!
Of course No trip to Vegas is complete without visiting the Beautiful Bellagio resort!!!!!
My cousin and I at that famous Staircase, remember Ocean's 11????? It is now gone and shops fill that space!!!!!I guess we aren't Young or Blonde!!!!! But we could still watch from a spot further back!!! Funny when it aired, we could really see our daughter alot, but you could see us too leaning way over to catch a glimpse!!!!!We still laugh about that entire trip!!!!!

Hey Jamie! LOL! Not upset with you pulling for the Colts at all. All I ever wanted was for the Saints to get's been a long 42 years with the first 20 years never having had a winning season. So for alot of us old timers today's game was like the Superbowl for us. And hey, I love those Manning boys! It will be a great game! Good luck with the Colts although I don't think they will need it. Vegas odds have them already with a 4 point lead. No, I don't gamble but I do read...alot!

Vegas is one of those places I hope to visit one day. I especially would like to go to Hoover Dam! I'm a nerd, I know!

Your daughter is just lovely!

Blessings my friend!

Boy! You do have an eye for the stars!
What a fun trip!

Thank you for including me in the trip to Prescott. But I work, so a trip during the week is not possible. :( Plus my husband and I are going up this Saturday to visit some friends. Please keep asking though. I still love to get together with you guys.

If you really are going to get a juicer go to costco. They have the one we ordered on TV, but half the price! We love it and it is really fun for Miss C too. She would love to help.

Go Colts!
Jamie, Glad you liked my painted stripes, it was really pretty easy and I've done the going the other way too. Check out my bathroom post
Take off the tape while the paint is still damp and good luck. Kathy

OMgosh, I remember that show. My husband and son ALWAYS wanted to watch it. It always creeped me out the kind of stuff they made their contestants do!
