Recently, my wife and I we announced that we were having a contest to select a temporary guest host for our weekly live chat show. Since I’ll be gone on Saturday April 11, we’ll need someone to keep my wife company on the couch while she talks about stuff. The guest hosting responsibilities include:
3- Not peeing on the couch
In order to make sure that potential guest hosts had the sitting and talking requirements down we asked that those interested in guest hosting create a short video and post it for us to see (we’ll just hope you meet the third requirement). In the week and a half since we announced this, many people have expressed a desire to guest host but only a few of these people have actually submitted the video. Many potential guest hosts have actually said to us:
“I’d like to be your gust host, but I don’t want to make a video”
Really people, you think you’re too good for us? Is the video requirement really asking a lot? I don’t think so. If we can sit in front of a camera and talk for 90 minutes without a script, you can record 30 seconds of video. As soon as we see it you can delete it.
As a reminder, this is who you get to host with while I’m gone:

Here are the rules again:
I will be in New York on Saturday April, 11 and The Slackmistress will be broadcasting in LA without me. We think it would be fun to have a guest host take my place for a night (just on the show, not for any of the nekkid stuff…although this is really my wife’s call). SO if you’re interested in guest hosting here is what you have to do:
Create a video and tell us about it.
Your video can tell us why you think you’d make a good guest host, or it can be your best impression of my wife and or me. Just post the video and and tell us where we can find it. Keep in mind that we are in Los Angeles and we have no travel budget. Our guest host will probably be local or wealthy but we’re putting together a prize package for the best out of town entry. You have until March 25th to submit your video to so get to work.
If you have any questions, let me know. Archives of or weekly chat shows can be found here.
