After spending last night in the hospital with my daughter Olivia, I woke up this morning to an email from Oprah’s OWN show saying that my video audition was finally live on Oprah’s site and available for voting.You can watch my audition video here.
Even if you’ve already seen the video on You Tube, I’d love to have you watch it again – as the total number of views is tallied on the site – and, if you like the video I’d ask you to vote for it as often as possible – again, that number is tallied publicly and I’d like to demonstrate support for the concept.
You do NOT need to register to vote and you can vote as often as you’d like according to the Frequently Asked Questions page on Oprah’s site.
Just to clarify the purpose of voting for these videos. First, one person from the five videos with the highest votes will automatically gain a spot on the new reality series whose grand prize winner gets their own television show. Second, for me personally, I commented in my paper application, which is not available for public viewing, that I bring a leadership ability that is critically important for a television host. I’d like to demonstrate that by having my video receive a tremendous number of votes in the remaining few days of this contest; voting ends Saturday, July 3 at 11:59 pm PST (which is 1:59 am on July 4 CST).
Oh, and one more thing. I have heard from someone else that some people are getting reject letter from Oprah’s team almost immediately after their video is posted (or maybe when their video is not posted because it violates the rules?). Good news, I haven’t gotten a reject letter so I think I made it passed the first hurdle.
Please share this link http://myown.oprah.com/audition/index.html?request=video_details&response_id=13194&promo_id=1 with your Facebook and Twitter followers, vote time and again and bear with me as I remind you everyday to vote.
If you are wondering what this is all about, please read my previous two posts about Oprah’s contest.
Your turn: I welcome ideas on how else we can promote this video and generate more legitimate votes for this contest. What do you think?
