Xtreme Waterparks: Our TV Episode / Debut!

Last Labour Day, three friends and I spent a day at Calypso, a water park in Ottawa, filming a tv show called Xtreme Waterparks with the Travel Channel (you can read about the experience HERE).

It's been almost a year and the episode finally aired last Sunday night and it's so cool!  In this episode called, 'Getting Wet in San Diego', we are the first--of four--featured water parks in the show.  Our portion is about seven minutes long.  It's so neat seeing yourself on tv--in a bikini and without make-up, no less--and this is a great memento to have forever.  


See all my posts about the journey of Xtreme Waterparks HERE.

Fun! Are you actually afraid of waterslides or was that a gimmick for the show?

@Blondie: I was FREAKING OUT over that one where the floor drops away. They totally cashed in on my fear and had me play it up, but I was actually VERY anxious and nervous. I didn't want to do it. AFter the first time, it wasn't so bad, but after the THIRD take, I was like, 'Okay, I'm done.' :P

Your fear didn't really seem genuine.

@Allie: lol, I'm not sure what you'd like me to say to that; I can assure you it was :)
