I've never seen the show, but I think I may have just signed on to be in a commercial for punkin' chunking or whatever the show is. I'm not sure what it entails, but they asked for all my sizing information and you might be seeing me on a tv sometime before the show debuts around thanksgiving or whatever. I'm slightly excited.

I just responded to some thing they posted on facebook, sent a picture and now they're calling and asking for my sizes. i'm not even sure which "role" i got.

Needed are:
- One Tall, Rather Heavyset Guy, 40s, Bearded, Kinda Wild Look –this is our crazy character

- One Heavyset Guy, late 40s/early 50s, With Facial Hair (Goatee orBeard), Dressed as a Viking – “Viking leader”

- One Strong-Looking Guy, 40s, dressed as a Viking – “Viking teammate” #2

- One Average Build Guy, 30s/early 40s, All-American (think Mike Rowe)

- One Average Build Guy, 30s, probably facial hair, distinct/quirkylook (think Jamie and Adam from Mythbusters)

- One Thin Guy, 20’s, clean shaven, Big Bang Theory-looking guy

Women: Age: 30-40 and Men, age 30-50; “everyday people”

Probably that last average build guy. But maybe I'm an everyday people.

I'll be keeping an eye out for this one.

Let me know if you get any more details on a possible air-time.

Punkin Chunking? Sounds like they are going to launch you into the air in a gourd. But Congrats man! What is the show really about?

Launching pumpkins with various style launchers. I saw a trebuchet, a cetrifuge and a cannon when I was there. They try to break a mile, which they did in Utah last month. They've never broken a mile in Delaware.

a centrifuge? that will NOT get you enough torque unless your using laboratory grade. And good luck getting one of those for under 4000.

well, maybe i got the terminology wrong. It works though.

4000 is nowhere near the limit on these machines. i'm sure they're putting tens of thousands in.
