BL Audition Video

Getting this made has been a HUGE production and you wouldn't be viewing this video without the talented editing styles of my sweet, talented, caring and angel Angie Pectol Sullivan!!


Anyone that knows Ang knows that she is one of the most supportive and caring people you will ever meet. When the editor I was planning on using dropped out on Sunday I was SOOOO sad that I after all the time I took of my cousin Kylie's as she filmed and all the people who agreed to say something, my dreams of my best effort to getting on the biggest loser looked as though they were not going to happen.

In comes Ang! A mother of 3 busy girls she took a time out of life to make this video happen. Not only the audition video, but this blog video, and a charming case complete with cover that I will take a picture of when I get it. Ang, sacrificed hours away from her normal routine because she knew that this was important to me and she BELIEVES IN ME!

Thank you to Angie for Editing and adding music and keeping such a great flow, Kylie for the hours she spent filming and Meems for inspiring me that I CAN DO IT, and Mom and Pat for your straight from the heart tributes. I LOVE YOU ALL SOOOO MUCH!

Since getting word that I didn't make the show.. I decided to repost this so that you could all see the starting of my Biggest Loser Journey

Whenever I think of you, Meg, I instantly think of fun, laughter, and unconditional love.

Whether you get picked or not, I know that you would be a WONDERFUL asset to the show. People would fall in love with you, cheer you on, and laugh with you every week.

I hope you get it. I'm praying for you! Thanks for sharing this video with all of us, despite how personal it is.

I love you!

Megsy, I will be SHOCKED if you aren't chosen! Your personality, honesty, sensitivity to others, and zest for life are sure to convince those Biggest Losers that you are made for TV! Who would't root for this absolutely gorgeous, talented, and funny woman? You deserve every bit of praise these people have been giving...and lots more! May the whole world see the absolutely Marvelous Meg!

You have my and my 5 yr olds vote (stalking via Marissa/Leap). She sat and watched the whole thing with me. She said you could "have one of her brothers if you wanted to be a mom" and that "that show should let her be a winner and get little green dress". Best of luck to you.

Josh Carr Superstar said...

Meg - I cried like crazy watching your video. Then I cried like crazy all over again reading all of the comments people made. It must feel good to know that everyone who crosses your path LOVES you.

It's weird because I was always around you growing up and I didn't realize all you were going through. I know your trials have made you better and stronger, but I don't think you needed the help and I am so sorry that you have had to go through them.

Your video was awesome - way to pull it all together. You are amazing

Boise Buhrley's said...

Oh, Meg! I love, love, love you.
(and obviously, I'm not the only one.) Now it's time for the world to get to know our Meggie Girl!! Goooooooooo Meg!!!!!!!!!xoxoxoxoxo

Joslyn Marie said...

Karli Anderson said...

Meg-

Awesome video and the producers, Bob, Jyllian, would be nuts not to choose you because you deserve to be on the show. I am already a big fan of the show, I love it and it would be so awesome to watch it and see someone I know. Good luck I hope you get picked. I will cross my toes since I can't cross my fingers. Love you and say hi to your mom for me.

amaree said...

Meg- GOOD luck! I think you'd be awesome on the show, and would rock the world of all of us out there who need a cheer-up, example, role-model, and just a perfect picture of perserverance and cheerfulness. I'm rooting for you! And if you make it, I'll be watching and cheering gung-ho all the way!

I have always been so impressed by you and your zeal for life. I know Jolyn has only the greatest things to say about you! I just wanted to wish you the best of luck!

Anonymous said...

I just saw your audition video thing, and wow! It was really nicely done and it was really touching. And look at Pat all grown up! I'm a little verklempt. You are so brave putting yourself out there! If anyone makes fun of you send them my way and I will curse them out, I've developed quite a potty mouth since quitting church :D You are a force to be reckoned with, I'll be keeping my fingers crossed. I haven't even watched TV for several years and I'd renew my cable just for this.

Hugs!

Meg you are such an amazing person. It's your turn to receive something. You are always giving to others. You have such a great personality and a HUGE heart! My husband thought you were pretty cool too from this video and he's never met you. I know that WHEN you get on the show you will truly bless many lives. Know that I am cheering for you all the way. You truly deserve this Meg.
Love ya! RED PANTS FOREVER!!!!

Erica said...

don't know you but have lots of mutual friends. touched by your video. i'm so excited for the many opportunities you have just by making this decision to change the outside. good luck!

Anonymous said...

Um, HI! You probably don't know me at all :) I'm Amy, I actually had heard a lot about you when you were in Southern Illinois, Carbondale, to be exact. I am originally from there and I think you and Jen were there when I returned from my mission. Everyone always told me, 'You have to meet Jen and Meg' :) Unfortunately I never met you, but I did get to meet Jen. Soo, since we have a lot of friends in common and Facebook is soo with it, your Biggest Loser support group popped up on my homepage. I went to it and then to your blog and even watched your audition tape and all I can say is...YOU GO GIRL! :) I am soo inspired by your tape and story, it is amazing. I share so many of the same feelings and frustrations you mentioned, as I'm sure so many others do too, so I think Biggest Loser has no choice but to pick you! I looove the show and watch it like a fanatic when I can because it is soo inspiring and makes me want to get off the couch and conquer the world...well that and I have a little crush on Sione ;) hehe. But You're awesome! And such an inspiration. I just thought you should know that. And even if nothing happens of all this, it looks like you've learned a lot already, you have a ton of support and you've inspired you're first person-ME! So thank you for sharing yourself in such an open and honest way and for the inspiration and super super GOOD LUCK! I'm rootin for ya!

redfordkids said...

Did you give the Biggest Loser your blog address? If they read all these comments they would HAVE TO CHOOSE YOU. Along with the video that makes everyone even those that don't know you cry their eyes out- I haven't taken a shower yet today but my shirt is soaked in tears!( Hey I'm pregnant!) It doesn't suprise me there are all these comments from all these people that LOVE you so much. They would be crazy not to allow you this chance! I am so excited. I know you will do great!I love you Meg!

Amber said...

I really think you have such a good chance! We watched your video (again!) with Aunt Susan tonight. It still makes me cry, laugh and cry. I am really impressed with the way you have handled your trials. You are truly amazing. Thanks for being a source of inspiration in my life, Meg. We are saying some extra prayers just for you to get on the show.

Pray for Megan P. that she can get a great job! She had her first interview today and the place and interviewer were kind of scary.

Love you! Your forever sister. =)

Teresa said...

Meg,

You don't know me, but a good friend of mine told me about your video and as I watched it, I realized that I use to work with your mom years ago at Valtek. I remember you as a little girl coming to the company parties there.
My family and I are praying for you to make it on the Biggest Loser. It is one of our most favorite shows and it would be so fun for us to watch Jillian and Bob kicking your butt :0) We are rooting for you! Good luck!!!!
