Ask a Contestant!
« on: August 10, 2007, 07:19:24 PM »
There is a very good chance I will be having an interview with Katie, the Green Monkey on the Mystical Spellbook of the Imperial Wizard episode in a few days. I've conducted interviews before, but I find myself asking the same questions each and every time. I'd like to throw some variety in the mix, but it can't all come from me. That's why I want to know,

If you were talking to Katie right now, what would you ask her?

I'll take the best five or so questions and send them off to be answered. Submit as many as you like. :) (Yes, you will receive credit for an accepted question; don't worry.) I've talked to her and she says she is ready--now I just have to make sure she'll answer them in a timely manner. :wink:

Yay for another interview? How did you find the interviewee this time?

And as for a question, how about,

"What was it like running through the temple?"

About when did it start being cool again to tell people you were on Legends?

(Are you sure this isn't an imposter, Ed?)

What were you and kirk talking about after the temple run? I've always wondered that especially in the discarded seal that conversation went on for a good two minutes.

She still has her shirt from the show, first of all. It's at her mom's house, but she'll be making a trip in two weeks to get a picture of it if she can find it; otherwise, she'll send me an image of a photo taken around the period the show was taped. In the meantime, she sent me some pictures of herself now, and I have to say, they do indeed look like the real Katie. If all this isn't enough, she says she has some ancient messages on her MySpace that deal with her experience on the show. I don't have a MySpace account, but I'll find ways to look into this.

If she can provide definitive evidence like she says, I'll be more sure that she was a contestant than any other I've received e-mails from. Thanks for your concern, though, Renegade. I've learned to think the same way you have.

Here's some:

Do you think, in retrospect, that you and Jared might have won had you gone first instead of second?

Have you seen or talked to Jared since your time on the show?

Was there anything particularly funny or interesting that happened backstage or was edited out?

Were you a fan of the show when you tried out? If not, what made you audition? If you were, was there anything from the show that was very different than how it looked on TV?

RP, unless you're lying, when HASN'T it been cool?

Well Ed, I AM a member of myspace, so if there's any members-only stuff that you need help looking into, give me a P.M. or email and I'll see what I can come up with!

Everything has a backlash, Bob.

Once something becomes immensely popular, it becomes uncool in terms of children's television.  Look at Power Rangers and the backlash it reserved.

Now, among college kids, owning up to watching the show makes you a badass.

It was too difficult to pick individual ones because they were all pretty good. Furthermore, they cover a good range of topics so I won't need to ask many supplementary questions.

So, the seven questions will be...
  • Were you a fan of the show when you tried out? If not, what made you audition? If you were, was there anything from the show that was very different than how it looked on TV? (Olmec)
    [li]What was it like running through the temple? (The Silver Monkey)
    [li]Was there anything particularly funny or interesting that happened backstage or was edited out? (The Ancient Warrior)
    [li]What were you and Kirk talking about after the Temple Run? (outer space)
    [li]Do you think, in retrospect, that you and Jared might have won had you gone first instead of second? (The Ancient Warrior)
    [li]About when did it start being cool again to tell people you were on Legends? (Renegade Pancake)
    [li]Have you seen or talked to Jared since your time on the show? (The Ancient Warrior)
Thanks to all who contributed! :D

That seems to be a well balanced set of questions, Ed. I look forward to reading the Interview on your site.

Well, you guys, the members, did all the work to get there. I'm going to throw in one question about the earlier rounds of the show that we didn't touch on, and also include a question asking whether there was anything else interesting to share. It'll be a long interview, but I have the confidence she'll answer the questions well.

She was awesome at answering the questions quickly, so it should be either tonight or tomorrow, actually. :P

As promised, the interview is here. Thanks again to the question contributors. Perhaps if I run across another contestant I'll ask you guys again.
