I Schooled Mario Lopez on Money

Yes, this is me on television zooming with Kit Hoover and Mario Lopez on national television. The segment on NBC's Access Daily aired on Monday! Why this was one of the most nerve wrecking moments of my life:

  • Two weeks ago, I posted on my social media about Zack Morris and AC Slater. The next day, a producer from NBC emailed me and asked if I would be interested in being on TV with Mario Lopez. I thought this was fake. It wasn't.
  • Rather than do a typical TV interview, they wanted me to host a game show segment between the two hosts. I've never done that on TV before!
  • In helping to write the segment, I was feeling imposter's syndrome BIG TIME. I honestly didn't think it would make it.
  • When I actually saw Mario on my zoom meeting, I stopped breathing. When he pretended to take off his shirt, I pretty much blacked out.
  • As the segment progressed, everything totally went off script and I found myself winging it and just hoping for the best.
  • When the segment was over, I was so afraid I messed up. But the producers said I did even better than their last guest Joey Fatone [90s overload here]. 

I almost said no because it was SO OUT OF MY COMFORT ZONE. But that's the beauty of life, right? Doing things even when you're scared AF and letting the unexpected take you somewhere you never imagined.
