Well friends it's almost here. For those of you that don't know please go to one of these links http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/100575, or http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/102544, for the entire explanation.
But for those of you that's been with me on this journey, the name and date of the show has been released. The name will be called "Neat Freaks." The air date is December 5, 2012 at 10:00pm on TLC.
Of course that's for the USA. However I understand it will be released in Europe and other countries, I'm not sure of the air date for those.
I understand since this is the pilot, the success of the series will depend on how it's received. So if you see it and like it, please let the network know.
i'll check it out...because it is you...i don't normally watch much TV...but i'll take a look.....congrats!
I believe the problem with the links was that the commas were somehow included as part of the links in the first post. In quoting that post, I deleted the commas, so (if my theory is correct) the links in this post ought to work.
Congrats to you.. that is AWESOME! I will definitely be watching.. TLC is one of my favorite channels
Thanks Jamie, I'll know whether it will be one of mine when I actually see myself when the show airs. LOL!
Congratulations and Kudos to you. I wish you much success. when you are rich and famous remember the little people.
That's Great News.... Breakaleg Mate!
But whatever you do.... don't let them blame The End of The World a few days later, on your performance okay??
darn....neither link takes us anywhere...but to an alert that the "page does not exist!" Anyway...congratulations! I'll catch you on TLC! How wonderful for you!
That's awesome news... Congrats! Wish you Best of LUck and Success!
WOO HOO, Freta! I will be sure to tune in- how cool is that! Another one bites the dust for Hollywood... don't forget us, Freta.
That's awesome and congratulations! However, both links doesn't work
Congrats! I think this is really exciting and will be tuning in! Can't wait!
Okay sorry about the links, I'll go back over to them and post something so you can see it.
That's great, fastfreta! (Should we call you fastneatfreaka?) I will certainly look for it.
Please keepus updated and remind us again of the date and time as it nears.
Yeah, I was disappointed, too, about the links not working. :-(
How great I will be watching. TLC if one of my favorite channels. I'm a tv watcher and not afraid to admit it.
I'll be looking for it, Freta. It's a good experience.....I was a contestant on a reality show pilot once but the network (CBS) dropped it before it ever aired.
I pray that TLC will take it away! Go girl!!
(hey, what did you think about all those 'confidentiality agreements'? did they try to put the fear in you if you told anyone?)
I hope the show does air. I guess it can get right up to air date and still not air. Oh yes the release really scared me. I guess the hope that the show airs is a double edged sword, because if it does I'm tied to that darn release in perpetuity. So if I don't like what I see, it won't matter. I find myself reading and rereading it constantly.
Actually I really hope I can get remuneration from readers of my hubs as as result of my appearance, because I received all I was ever going to receive once, and only once. But as I said before I really had fun doing it.
I do understand. Those agreements are relentless. My husband refused to sign them altogether and was against the whole idea of me being on the show. In fact, he was enraged. But his reaction was illogical: the show was completely okay, no nudity, no filthy content, just a psychological/comedy-like, competition on nightmares and phobias.
Don't let those agreements scare you, though. They are only to protect the network. The don't want us going around using the network name to make money off of it. It's ridiculous. Mike Skupin, who was on Survivor, has a whole website with the Survivor logo all over it. And they never have done a thing to him. He told me that they never said a thing to him about it.
You can definitely use the experience to your advantage. The network may be able to take away all l your rights as a contestant, but they can't take away your experience. (plus the appearance fee$)
That's why I wrote about my experience on Real Nightmares, but left out the names of the networks, etc in accordance with the contract. The articles are here on hubpages. But now, I really don't care, I just shout it out; yes, I worked with Robert Englund! Well, anyway, you know you have a kindrid spirit. I know the emotions and excitement you are going through.
Send me a message if you need to. I have a feeling TLC will come through for you!! I don't think they are as rigid as CBS! I'm excited for you!
I'm not sure my release is the same as CBS. The phrase that scares me most is one that says they can exploit you at their discretion. Hey but the appearance fees idea excites me, thanks for the encouragement.
Yeah, it's the same release form used by all. That's what casting told me......and it gives them the right to edit you any way they want...yes. It's all a toss-up. I wanted the experience and didn't care what they did with it. So make me look like an idiot...I didn't care, it was a chance to face my fear head-on and I did it!!!
Good luck to you. As long as you had a good experience and enjoyed everything then it was a wonderful experience for you.
I also had an experience with a tv show call My ghost story, It was not a happy out come. They twisted the story so badly I still get angry when I see it.
The story they did was on my hub, A Ghost Hunter’s True Ghost Experiences, Part 4 and 5
Congratulations Fastfreta, I'm so happy for you and I wish you all the best. I will be looking out for your upcoming show. Be blessed.
Thanks all, I'll come back close to the date and remind you all. However if my experience is like Kathyinmn, then I might not!
Congrats Freta I'm sure you're going to have fun and good luck! definitely will be watching for your show.
Congratulations. I hope the show works out well for you. Good luck in this and all your future endeavors.
Yay!!! Congratulations FastFreta!!! I'll be looking for your episode and watching!!
Again, congrats and hope all turns out as you wish!
Congratulations! Your hard work reaps a good harvest. This is what I am telling my friends always.
Thanks guys, I hope when it airs I am proud of what I've done. This is really nail biting time. They won't let me see it until it airs.
That is awesome, fastfreta! That happened to me also, however, by a new magazine being published. It's really nice to know that hubs get viewed! Best of luck!
That's really exciting, tinamariemiller. Tell us the magazine so we can go out and buy it. I certainly will be one of their new readers
fastfreta, thought you should know .. neither of the links work. Congratulations to YOU! How exciting .. I'll have to peek in on your articles to see what you wrote that drew them to you. Must be exceptional! You Go Girl!
Sorry about the links, however if you go back to the forum you'll see one of them, because I just responded to someone over there. Actually to me it wasn't that exceptional, it's just that they were looking for people like me. The article is Why I Love To Clean, and that's the basis of the show. By the way, someone said if you remove the commas you'll be able to use the links.
Calm down there, gmwilliams, let's reserve that judgement until after we see the show. Seriously though thank you so much for the encouragement.
I am going to be on the first episode of Neat Freaks I was told by producers the other day that It would be myself and another person- Is that you Fast Freta? LOL! They told me 10pm on TLC on 12/5/12. So I guess it must be! Good luck to us.. I know they are going to portray me as a clean freak with a side car of OCD. HAHA!
Yes that is me. Hey this is great. I can't believe this, we actually connected. I can't wait to see how this turns out. Say contact me via email, we need to talk.
That sound great !! I hope they don't make us look nuts !! Lol
Wow! Freta AND Christy - congrats to both of you. TWO hubbers about to become famous TV stars.
Thanks Motown2Chitown, we're both hoping that we're satisfied with our presentation. Just to put it out there, there is a comedy element to the show.
CONGRATULATIONS!!!!! I don't watch tv but still Congratulations and I will check it out.
Thanks Bill, we will not be on but once, I mean it's not a continuing show for either of us. So you won't have to watch but once,
Hey, I finally saw a casting call for the show "Neat Freaks" on the TLC website. I was told that the promos will begin about a week out from the show, so I think next week will be the week, so keep a lookout.
My daughter and I check daily, I surmise they're on vacation beginning today, and we won't see any movement until Monday. However, I'll check back tonight to see if there's promos appearing.
well they definitely have us looking like Freaks that is for sure!! LOL I have read so many crazy comments about us today- good and bad. You definitely have to have thick skin in this industry. Freta, the media is already trying to portray you as a woman who loves to drink bleach and apparently both of us need to lose weight!! LOL Doesn't bother me one bit. People have to remember this is Reality TV and everything is extreme. I do love to clean like a fool, but I also work full time at a Global IT company, travel the world, have a great social life and take good care of my future husband and 2 dogs And I will say we had an amazing time filming! Whether America loves it or hates it- if they are talking- it will be good!
The one that has taken off the most is based in the UK. They always know first! The producers had told me that NEAT FREAKS would air internationally as well, and they would show more over there because they have less commercials.
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/artic … s-day.html
I think there are around 164 comments. Most are good but a lot are saying we must be unemployed /on welfare to be able to clean this much, lots of talking about your fruit in bleach and use of bleach and the environment, we both need to lose weight, my boobs are busting out the top of my shirt and negative comments about the other 2 as well. etc. IT doesn't bother me one bit. Let them all talk. They do they same to many Reality people. I think it's funny. Several people said me and you could come clean their houses any time, would pay us, let us clean the world, introduce us to Hoarders and let us help them etc. It's pretty cool. Check it out.
It was on their front page of the news last night and we were the top story under Obama and MItt Romney eating together.. at one point we were above them briefly. Now THAT is wild.
Have a good weekend!
One more note- Our show is set to air on the same date and time as Duck Dynasty's Season Finale..One of the hightest rated shows on TV right now. If the success of this show depends on the pilot, I think I would've purchased a different time slot !! I know I love that show myself and will be DVR'ing it! I have been trying to hype it up all day all over every media outlet possible. I should be getting paid lol!
Thank you Christy! Could you and Freta come an clean my house please!
Great video clip. Freta you are a natural! But I would feel better if you were using vinegar instead of bleach...I hope this turns into something good for both of you. Get an agent, quick!
We have interviews with news and papers around here this Sunday. It is definitley gettting crazy!!!
Oh and one more cool thing... Last night ,on that website, my body in my picture had 3 little links to buy earrings, similar shorts and a similar top by clicking the highlighted tabs. There was a shopping cart icon in the corner of my picture! HAHA Today it only shows my earrings. That is the coolest thing I have seen all day. No one else's did that...so odd! I am sitting here thinking to myself - I was washing our cars and had on a tshirt, old shorts, pearl earrings and was sweaty with no makeup and that is fashion?! LOL
Oh now I've seen some of it. The negative comments don't bother me one bit. Thanks girl, let's let it roll our backs. I agree I do need to lose weight, and maybe this will urge me to do so.
Link provided is showing page 404 as many hubbers could not find the page, anyways
Congrats! TLC is my hubbys fav channel he watches it regularly.
If you can tell the timing to air in India would like to see you on Tv.
