I love this season’s Biggest Loser: Couples. I’ve even blogged about how everything you need to know about working you can learn from the Biggest Loser. So I’m sure you can believe my excitment that my business is coming face to face with two of Biggest Loser contestants. Blaine and Dane are running in the Half Marathon this Saturday in Salt Lake City.
The marketing agency for the Salt Lake City Marathon called me in to provide PR assistance a few weeks ago. With everything that’s been going on they needed some extra reinforcement. We’ve gotten a lot of press coverage that’s positive lately and it’s been really rewarding. I love working on this account (I worked on it about four years ago as well). The race people are great to work with and the hype and thrill of race day is unbeatable.
So anyway, we got an email from Blaine a few days ago asking if he and Dane could run in the Half Marathon as a pre-run to a full marathon they’re running in a few weeks. I get to facilitate all interviews of them on race day (provided I document everything for the press woman at NBC) and I’m so excited! This is the strange part of reality TV. They feel just as famous to me as any other TV star.
Anyway, wish me luck. I’ll let you know how it goes.
