ABC reality show, Master of Champions

Master of Champions, a reality program, is going to air on ABC. It includes a unicycle segment.

Since it starts soon, I'm guessing the contestants have already been selected.

Anyone know any more about this or who is competing.

(Or did I already miss the thread about this?)

In some competitions, two competitors perform the same stunt and the judges decide who is the best. In other contests, two competitors perform different and unique tasks. Judges score them first, and the last three standing face the audience for final judgment. The winner will have earned the title Master Champion and have his/her name permanently inscribed on the Master of Champions Wall of Fame. Series premiere date June 22.
Sounds cool!

"Pizza and unicycle" in one sentence, and my name missing?

I've contacted one of the executive producers by e-mail, but got no reply yet.
As the initial article that JJuggle forgot to mention here; http://comingsoon.net/news/tvnews.php?id=14667
is talking about "world's most unique talents", I wonder wether they have budget to fly them in.

One other segment that this show will have is with RC helicopters.
The 'requitment' for that item was done trough internet-forums plus an visit to a convention.

Later in above article of comingsoon.net was another show anounced being produced by Endemol.
It's funny to see this Dutch company appear here. Longer ago I've worked many times for Endemol, both performances as unicyclist as on their payroll as editorial+production.
Once when we've recorded this item, Joop van den Ende himself came out to me (in person) to bring me his compliments.
Dispite he's not very verbose on it, it is publicly known that in his younger years he tried to become a clown. He seems to be able to juggle. It wont surprise me if it turns out he's able to ride a unicycle.

Good luck guys hopefully ABC wont rape you too bad. Silly "reality" TV where producers think its ok to pay talent little to nothing and make bank off their efforts.

Nobody makes people go on these shows. Contestants with talent also know they can "make bank" off of any appearance on national TV. That's what attracts the serious ones. Then of course there's the ones that just want to *be* on TV; they provide some "color."

I think Dan Heaton may be in this. Go Dan!

Hey, ::light bulb goes on in my head::
At the LA roundup meet Jess Riegal left his trials uni with Rod and said that someone from a production company was going to pick it up and it was for Dan Heaton, someone mentioned that he was filming something I think.


...connection?

and two X-treme unicyclists tackling a dangerously difficult obstacle course with never-before-seen freestyle tricks.
The website says that there are 2 of them, any ideas of the other one?

Okay, I don't have T.V, I've never even heard of this show. Please someone find a way to record this, and let us less fortunate uni addicts see it.
