Facing the loss

Why didn't I win?
Why didn’t I win?

I actually thought I was winning but realized just before the jurys announcement that I already lost. Welcome to my second TV-attempt.

Preperations
I was all set on doing a great TV-performance because it’s more fun that way. So I needed something to get me as much screen-time as possible. If there were any celebritys there I had to make sure they would stop by my marketplace. This was an example of missing the mark. Here the mark was to impress the jury, no one else was important.

What I should have done
On top of missing the mark my head was stuck up my ass until one week before recording date (it was recorded 6 months in advance). I wasn’t bothered by not knowing how the competition was organized. I think the TV-crew didn’t really know either.

Note to self– Make sure to get as much info about a competition to maximize success.

Anyhow, I could have done a much better job convincing the jury members just by preparing a little better.

More about this in the next post…

The Ullared TV-competition explained

This is "my" TV-show.
The hunt for the next best seller – ”my” TV-show.

If you havent seen this particular TV-show Ullared – Jakten på storsäljaren – it might be helpful to read this.

Huge department store
The largest department store in Sweden has its own TV-show. They simply film people and employees walking around in the store and make fun of it. There has even been a few spinoffs, especially one with an empoyee couple traveling the world (Check it out here).

Spinoff-competition
The show I’m in is simply a way to make TV of people that want to get their product into the store. There were about 30 products for each episode and one from each episode make it in to the store. A jury of two purchasers walk around behind the scenes and ask questions about price, lead time and other boring stuff off screen.

Simply the best
One product from each episode makes it in to the store. Its a big store and they sell tons of products.
