Follow your instincts and win at life!
I love game shows. I’ve always wanted to host one, or play others on TV. A new program called Let’s Ask America gave me the chance to claim $50,000. Using a webcam and Skype I played from my apartment, and represented for my city of Seaside, Oregon. The episode I starred in aired on my 30th birthday. It was the best gift ever. I dominated the competition, and maintained a lead the entire game. One by one I picked off the challengers. I attribute all of my success to following my instincts. I went with my gut. Even though we were playing before a live studio audience in Hollywood, I kept my cool. I racked up $6,600 heading into the final question. I decided to bank $5k, and risk $1,600 which could be doubled. I guessed the correct answer and screamed in joy. My total winnings ended up being $8,200! The crowd went wild, and I ran my mouth. The host Kevin Pereira asked what I would do with the money and I said, “Well Kev, shout out to William Blake and da Vinci, but I think I’m the greatest artist of all time. So I’m going to buy some Art supplies, and get my ideas out there.” The Daily Astorian wrote an article on my victory. Here’s the two clips the show has uploaded on their YouTube channel.
