NBC REALITY SHOW, "Your Big Break!"
This was from the time I was on NBC's "Your Big Break!" Television Reality Show in 1999. I was one of only 2 Canadians picked. There was over 100,000 people who auditioned from USA and Canada!! They flew me to NBC studios in LA and I got to meet Jay Leno. This show was BEFORE American Idol, and it was my 5 minute moment as a reality show star! Such Fun! Sorry, the sound is a bit touchy....it's VHS after all!!
