MTV Made

I know this has been talked about many times, but Made is coming to my high school and I want to know some things from people who have tried to get on it...
Do they have personal interviews with those who enter or do they just have you fill out a form or something...
should you say you want to be made into a professional player, or should i act like a complete noob and say i just want to be a tournament paintball player?
how did you "apply" if you wanted to be "made" into a paintball player, what about it interested them, and what do you think you should have changed?
any other things I should know?

Made came to my town to interview when I was back in high school. my ex-girlfriend was selected for the show and she requested to become a pro-paintball player. after discussing it with the network they told her they could not do paintball b/c it was "too violent." They requested she do something else 'extreme' like skateboarding or bmx...thats great, paintballs to violent buy lets stick her on something with wheels and let the poor girl kill herself...

as far as how she managed to be selected, she is very much a "people-person," is drop-dead gorgeous, and happened to be wearing her cheer leading uniform the day of the interviews bc there was a game that night. the mtv people ate up the pretty little chearleader wanting to do something that was a male dominated sport...to bad the network had something else to say about it.

well do they do personal interviews and are they relatively long, or short? I have presentations prepared to show that paintball is not violent and show how large it is. we were going to use this to show the building owner of the building we were going to lease for a field but we didnt have enough money... will i be able to show them this video if i brought a laptop, or could i just memorize it and explain it to them?

i just texted her about what the interview was like and her response was "5 minutes about what i wanted to be made into with a camera in my face"

go over-prepared and if they allow you time to show them everything great, and if not, oh well you tried your best...keep in mind she had the gorgeous girl aspect goin for her and mtv eats that up...so maybe you should get some plastic surgery first

Hopefully....either look like a complete dweeb, or a reaalllyyy reaallly hot dude, preferably a preppy stuck up dick, like Zach Efron (omg, alot of the girls in my skool love him!)

But gl with getting in, haha you should look handicapped, and say your only dream was to play paintball, and start sobbing, haha.

Make your self look like a social outcast. Pocket protecter, glasses with one side higher than the other, talk with a winy voice, talk about your low self confidence and look at the floor while doing it. Also feel free to cry, they'll love you for that.
