This week I submitted my audition video for the new host of Check Please! I was a little bit nervous to put myself out there but I figured I didn't have much to lose!
I wanted my video to be a mini Check Please! episode and instead of focusing on a restaurant like the show does, focus on me and my signature dish...my chipotle fish tacos with mango salsa. If you remember, I used them for my Bobby Flay audition this past summer. I developed my script to be conversational, but at the same time added some things in that I knew I wanted to emphasize. I'm lucky enough that one of my coworkers is a video whiz and was willing to help me out film and edit the audition video. She really did a great job and made it look super professional. I had two of my friends and my sister help as well by joining me at the table and talking about why I'd make a great host and about my tasty fish tacos! My favorite part of filming and was coming up with my own Anchorman-style sign off..."Keep Eating Chicago!"
