I received an email from Joan Petrocelli, a senior producer for The Maury Show, who is in search of “self-proclaimed geeks who would have fun getting made over to look different for a day.” The makeover day is Friday, November 7th.
So if you’re interested in participating and can make it to New York for the taping, contact Joan by calling 212-547-8420.
Or, if you’re in New York on Friday and just want to see the geek makeovers in person, you can fill out a form for free tickets.
I’ll try to tune in on Friday to see what they end up doing with the makeover. My hope is that they won’t say disparaging things about geeks and will focus on self-confidence rather than simply “looking great.” I’ve met some seriously geeky looking people with a lot of self confidence who could put beauty queens to shame in a pageant.
Whatever Friday’s Maury Show ends up being about, I’m glad that they’re taking time away from Paternity Pandemonium* for some geek love.
*I wish I were making up that slogan. It’s real.
