    Podcast #274 – Interview with Reality TV Casting Producers, Jason Cornwell & Damon Collazo from Cornwell Casting


    A real fun podcast for you this week as we’ve never really gotten to go behind the curtain with anybody in the casting/production world (outside of one person) until today, when I speak with Jason Cornwell and Damon Collazo from Cornwell Casting. They cast this season of “Joe Millionaire” among some of their other shows over the years like “Million Dollar Matchmaker,” “Tough Love,” “Kate Plus Date,” “Mental Samurai,” among others. A really fun dive into what goes into casting a reality dating show, in particular how they cast this season of “Joe Millionaire.” Before the interview, I briefly discuss the WTA filming next week and then address why I don’t just share what I’ve heard about Clayton’s ending. There’s a reason for it. Short answer: It’s pointless to because it’ll only lead to more questions you’ll have that I don’t have answers to. Trust me. As always, if you’d like to respond to the interview, please include Cornwell Casting’s Twitter handle (@CornwellCasting) in your replies. Thanks again to Jason & … Continue reading

    It’s asked in today’s “Reader Emails,” and ABC hasn’t announced their schedule yet for the rest of the season, but there has to be a week where they double up. The finale is the week of March 14th, and we don’t know if it’ll be a one or two night finale yet. But we’ve only got 3 Mondays of episodes before then, yet we still have to do Austria, Hometowns, Overnights, and the Women Tell All. So I gotta imagine there will be a Monday/Tuesday week, or Sunday/Monday. Or hell, we’ve actually seen them combine the Tell All with an episode recently, so they could do that. Nothings been announced but certainly they need to double up somewhere. The “Women Tell All” tapes next Wed the 23rd in LA, so expect to start seeing some of the women posting airport pictures probably this weekend. I gotta believe Shanae will be there, and will 100% be kept away from all the women pre-filming, and we won’t actually see her on stage until they bring her out … Continue reading

    Wait a second. Now you’re telling that since the NY Times bought and took over Wordle, we’re gonna have days (like today) where not everyone gets the same word? What the hell is going on here? I read some explanation on Google and it had me totally confused. But yes (no spoiler here, don’t worry if you haven’t done todays yet), apparently since NY Times bought Wordle, they eliminated some words from their list off the original list? I didn’t even know there was an original list, and wouldn’t looking at the original list kinda ruin the whole point of the game? I’m so confused at what’s going on and I need answers now dammit. And while it doesn’t change my thoughts on how I feel about Wordle and how much excitement level has dropped significantly since I started (currently on a 29 game streak since I started), I still would want to know that we’re all playing the same word every day. I think I’ll text Ashley Spivey after I’m done posting today and … Continue reading
