I feel like the Biggest Loser!!

I apologize for my semi-misleading title... I actually feel like a huge winner, but I will explain the title...
My brother is friends with the producer of The Biggest Loser and 
The Fashion Show, to only name a few of the shows he produces. 
His company is 

and my brother hooked me up BIG TIME!
I interviewed last Thursday for an intern position in the casting department at 3Ball... and I got it!!! I will continue my internship at HOBY on Tuesday/Thursday and work at 3Ball on Mon/Wed/Fri. 
I started today and it was great!! When I got to the office at 10, I set up my computer at my station 

and watched the reels of the finalists that were considered for The Biggest Loser Season 8 (currently filming). The stories pulled at my heart strings, and I was so excited to find out that a few of my favorites made it to the show!! I can't wait to watch this season!!
After about an hour of watching the YES reels, I was assigned the job of going through the NO boxes and watching the DVDs to see if any "gems" had been passed over. 

I wondered how casting directors knew who to put through to the next round of consideration, but after watching a couple of bad audition tapes, you just know. 

After listening to people talk about their struggle with diet and exercise for 6 hours, I felt the motivation to hit the gym hard. I also cooked salmon and veggies for dinner. YUM-O!! 

I really enjoy working with the folks at 3ball. Already making friends :) I hope your week is off to a great start!! -E
