One Minute Of Fame 2009 1st
One Minute Of Fame contest by Octo TV channel was a good
opportunity for the Jumping Jewels to
perform infront of TV cameras so the team went for the auditions. Ariel
and Amy also auditioned in the individual catergories. About one and
half weeks later Candice Miller called saying the Jumping Jewels where
through to the quarterfinals but not the individuals. We never
knew if the team would make it to each next round because this was a
popularity contest and the quarterfinal even had a 30% online voting
component. Some of the other teams had massive amount of supports at
quarter-finals and semi-finals at Millenia Walk.
For the audition the team wore their Jumping Jewels red jumper and a
jeans for a street look. In hindsight we look really ordinary then. For
the quarter-finals it was orange hoodies
with lime green skirts for an Okto look. For the semi-finals Okto told
not to change the costumes or choreography. After the semis we found
these great yellow short pants. Then while the team was in Hong Kong
Asian Rope Skipping Championships 2009 I found the pink parka, white
T-shirts and two tone shoes.
This was also when
reworked the choreography with other Jewels who did not go to Hong
Kong. When the team returned it was three long days of practice and a
day at Medicorps for the finals.
Until they announced the winner we never thought we could
actually win because
this was neither a sport nor a skipping competition. It was
a real reality competition for us.
