The Revolution!

I was recently contacted by a casting director for ABC's The Revolution hosted by Project Runway's Tim Gunn and Extreme Makeover's Ty Pennington. She's looking for inspirational, relatable moms who have 50-100 lbs. to lose.

I immediately nominated myself as a potential candidate. I'm a relatable mom and I definitely have weight to lose. I would love to be a part of this show! Of course, with Ty Pennington hosting it, I'd love to be part of the show even if it was about moms who like to wrestle alligators. What? He's easy on the eyes!

Anyway, if you're interested in applying to be on the show or if you know someone who might be, you can go here to check out the details. www.therevolutioncasting.com. If you think I would be a good fit for the show, you can show your support by leaving me a comment here.

Oh, you'll need to upload a full-length picture of yourself. I seriously didn't have any pictures like that because people aren't allowed to take full-length shots of me and if they do, I crop or delete them right away. How nice would it be to let myself be photographed without having to crop out everything but my head?

I think you should totally do it! You're relatable because you have kids and work and not a lot of time to really think about yourself. I hope you can do it. I haven't watched any episodes yet but I would totally DVR it if you were on :-) good luck!

Jen said...

You would be awesome on The Revolution! Good luck!

iffer@AOL.com said...

I think you'd be great on that show! I'd tune in to cheer you on and laugh at whatever funny things you say, since as funny as your blog and books are, I'm sure you're a hoot! Good luck!!

I'm leaving you some support, Dawn! I would love for you to be on this show, to see you succeed here and have fun while you're doing it. You'd be a bright spot for all the viewers.

I vote Dawn I vote Dawn! :)

I can't think of anyone who would be better on The Revolution, than you, Dawn! And no one else would be as deserving as you!

Jill said...

Yes, you should DEFINITELY do it and I know I'd watch if you did. You're totally relatable and would be a great addition to the show!

Unknown said...

Who is more inspirational and relatable???!!! Who is more deserving of this great opportunity? I hope hope hope you get it Dawn...how exciting

Stephanie said...

You would be great on the show! You deserve this! I would definitely watch!

Stephanie said...

You would be fabulous on the show! You would entertain everyone involved! I would certainly watch.

Rsymphony said...

If you were on it…I’d actually watch it :)

Sarah said...

I would love to see you on the show!! I'd probably watch to see Ty anyway but you would bring the show a much bigger audience because of your popularity!!

zig said...

i love that show! i would love to see you on it!

Kristi Coles said...

Yes yes yes, they should DEF pick you for the show!! If you are on the show I will watch for sure!! (if not then no I won't watch, it's not my thing) Dawn, I think you look beautiful the way you are but if losing some weight would make YOU feel better, then you've got my support 100%! You are an AMAZING woman! I would never beable to do what you do...raising 6 kids totally on your own, working full time with other people's kids, writing, shopping, cooking...all the things that should require the help of a spouse yet you are pulling it off on your own. No one deserves this better then you and I so wish I could tell Ty that myself, face to face...except I'd likely drool all over him, lol!!! Ty, if you see this...PICK DAWN!! She deserves it plus she would make you show just AWESOME with her wit and humor. Pick Dawn, pick Dawn, pick Dawn!!!

Eileen said...

well if they pick you dawn, I promise to watch every single episode!!!! they would be silly not to pick you, not that you have all that weight to lose, but because you are pretty! they need to pick pretty people, and funny doesn't hurt either :o)

Rikki said...

I've never heard of this show but if you were on I would most definitely watch it!

Heidi said...

You'd be perfect for it! I'd watch and then watch again on repeats. You'd be a better "Real Housewife" than the current selection!

Jani said...

I'd love to see you on The Revolution! You are definitely inspiring and relatable.

Jani said...

Go Dawn! Go Dawn! Go Dawn!

Kristin said...

You would be perfect this show. Especially all the adversity that you have faced with graced over the last several years and still have managed to keep your sense of humor...

Team Dawn !

The EMO said...

I would give up my boycott of this show if you were on it! They would be lucky to have you!

northernmommie said...

I think you would be perfect for the show!! I would totally watch it if you were on, although I have never heard about it before now. I think you would bring a lot of fun without being annoying. I know a lot of other moms could relate to you and your struggles and it would help them, too! Good luck!

kafein said...

The only thing that would make me watch!

pmerry said...

You are a complete inspiration and perfect for the show!

You would be perfect for this show Dawn!!! Not only are you an inspiration, you are hysterically funny! They couldn't pick a more entertaining, smart, brilliant person than you! Good luck!

Routhless said...

My vote goes to Dawn! Good Luck!

Jessie said...

Dawn, you would be wonderful on this show!!! Crossing my fingers!

grandmatomato said...

I vote for Dawn. Now I would never say she needs to lose 50 to 100 pounds.But Dawn believes she could lose some weight. I would love to see you help Dawn to have this experience. Please help my friend Dawn.

KingerMom said...

Yes! Pick dawn!

Krys72599 said...

If you really need to lose 50-100 lbs, then you carry your weight pretty well, which is a good thing, but since you think you do, I'm ALL for you on The Revolution! I think you'd be their B.E.S.T. makeover to date, if not ever! You're funny, nice, and I want you to be happy with yourself, so if you want this, I want this for you! Pick Dawn, producers!!!

Joy said...

I've been boycotting the show but I would totally watch if you were on it!!'

SandyAnnDee said...

Can't wait to watch you on the show. You are going to be on the show, right? Come on producer/casting/TV show people! Put Dawn on this show! Her fans want to cheer for her!

Heather said...

Hi Dawn! I love your blog and would definitely watch The Revolution if you were on it! It would be great to see someone I "know" on tv, plus you are so right about Ty Pennington! I hope they pick you!

Cyndi said...

Pick Dawn! Pick Dawn!

They'd be idiots to let you slip through their fingers for this show.

The Mommy said...

I've never watched, but if YOU were on it I definitely would. Wait, is it on the Disney Channel? Because I'm not sure we get any other ones...

Kidding!

kellyjmf said...

That would be so cool. I've never seen the show but I would definitely seek it out if you were on it.

jen said...

Yay Dawn! Good luck!

JAG said...

Dawn, you are the WHOLE package. You should do this show just to show everyone how incredible you are! Show them your shopping video!! I laughed til I cried over that one. Best of luck!

Gilsner said...

You would be AWESOME on this show! Not only are you relatable to moms everywhere but you are endearing and HILARIOUS... which would get me to watch, a chidless single woman with some pounds to shed. I think it's super promising that they contacted you... I hope you get it!!! :)

Kimberly Pearlman said...

Dawn this is an awesome thing for you! I really hope they pick you! :) How exciting. Good Luck!

Vicki said...

Dawn, this would be amazing for you! Praying they pick you. You ARE one amazing mom! Keep up the good work :)

TwinsanityMom - Janet said...

You would be perfect!! And it would definitely be a show I would watch. :)

CC said...

So I'm guessing that they mean the 50-100 lbs has to come off of you, right? If not, your youngest has to be at least 50 lbs! Haha! In all seriousness, I think you are fabulous! And truly an inspiration to all of us moms! Good luck!!!

Simmm said...

I don't know the show, but if they are looking for a inspirational and relatable mom you are most certainly a perfect fit! Your faithful readers are the best proof :)

Thank you for writing for us!!! And I hope you get picked :)

Mendi said...

I LOVE that show (and not just because I like to look at Ty)! I think it would be awesome if you could be on the show. I would love to see you on it.

Tamra B said...

I've never even heard of that show, but I would definitely watch if you were in it! Good luck!

Unknown said...

You should totally be on The Revolution!! It would be beneficial for both you AND the show: you'd get help getting healhier, AND the show's ratings would go up since you are so popular and your fans would all tune in to see you! :)

Chris said...

I've been watching the Revolution ever since OLTL went off the air and my favorite segments have always been the weight loss/lifestyle changes. You SO deserve this-personal attention!! Good luck Dawn!!

Jazzy said...

Pick dawn, pick dawn! We want dawn!

Jennifer and Clay said...

What a cool opportunity! I'd do it in a heartbeat!

Zarsky Family said...

Go for it! It sounds awesome!!!

New Life and Attitude said...

While I think you look amazing already, how exciting if you got on the show. Plus just think of the PR you would get for your books. It could be a two-fer!

Angela said...

Yes you should do it!!! I've never seen the show but who cares!! I will totally watch it if you are on it!!!!

alayna said...

Ok, I just went and applied too, but I'm nervous just thinking about it - I'm not sure I could do the whole embarrassing half-naked shots for all the world to see! I mean, my husband barely knows how much I weigh, and I want to put it out there on national TV? Hmm... But, I thought, hey, if I got to meet Dawn that would be cool! I don't know if we'd meet, but still. Good luck! I'm going to find it and DVR it since I've never even heard of it till I read about it on your blog!

Tokyo Biker Mommy said...

You'd be an instant ratings boost, they'd be crazy not to have you on the show! Win-win!

lawnajo said...

You would be awesome on reality TV because you are so funny and interesting. Good Luck
