This television show was auditioning for candidates in my area. I figured that auditioning was a win/win situation: if I didn't get on the show, it was an affirmation that I wasn't fat enough, and if I did get on the show, I had an opportunity to win a lot of money and achieve my dream of retiring at the age of 23.
There was, however, a third possibility that I didn't even consider: NBC just not showing up. This was kind of lame, but I left the audition site amused as a large black woman was speaking angrily into a local television camera in a monologue full of head-bobbing and finger-gesticulating. What's not to like with that?
