Blog Alert - Looking for Courtney (#124)



When I posted my 49er Gold Rush audition video on all the different video sharing sites, I had no thought of the star of my video, #124, would find it. But last night at 10pm, she found it and put in a comment.. Now my blog story is incomplete and I need to know more, so I'm hoping that Courtney will email me.. here is her comment and my response.

Hey, I'm # 124, I was searching on the internet the other night and came across this video. When the final Gold Rush team was made I didn't make the cut. Its always disappointing when you fail at something and when I saw this it made me feel good. At least someone thought I was good,I appreciate you noticing me. You learn from failure and this is definitely a learning experience.

Hi Courtney, I just can't believe you didn't make the squad. I picked you out of the mass rehearsals and that's why I had the camera ready in video mode when it was your turn. You had all the moves down. This is a travesty of justice! There should be a recount! I've uploaded my video to a whole bunch of video blogs and on Metacafe, it's got massive momentum, so you've been seen by over 80,000 people around the world and of course, you are my favorite. please email me tlc@thomascoates.com


So if Courtney checks back or if you know her, please tell her.. She didn't fail, they just failed to see her athleticism, grace & beauty.

As they say in the voice acting world - "It's selection, not rejection."

I can't believe she didn't make it!
I'm a cheerleader from the UK and saw your video and thought she was amazing.

Life is so harsh.
