Another thing to keep in mind is that this will look nice on your resume. Be sure to add this to your website so your customers know you won. Anything one does that is associated with television tends to give you more street cred with the average Joe who is hiring you. Not everyone knows about magic or vent comeptitions, but everyone knows about the talent shows that are on TV stations all over the world, from "American Idol" to "So you think you can be a Croatian Superstar?"

(OK I made the last one up, but you know what I mean !)

Wanlu,
You've been earning $1,000 prizes, saw yourself on a big banner in another city - doesn't sound like a small thing! No matter what happens in the future, you stepped up to the plate, took a swing and hit the ball out of the park twice. Keep up the great work.
Tom


Thanks Tom... that's a very nice way to put it. I took a swing and hit the ball out of the park twice!!! Never thought of it that way...thanks buddy. Smile

Hi Steve,

Your ostrich will surprise everyone...I can imagine the curtains opening, revealing a Mack to my right and an Axtell ostrich to my left Smile I just hope I make it to that round... Smile

I will post pictures and videos soon after the episodes have been aired.

Thanks Steve Smile

Hi Gang,

I have decided to use the Hartz old lady and a vent mask on the 3rd round Smile

In case I advance to the 4th round, I'll use an Axtell parrot with a left birdarm illusion and the Axtell ostrich to my right hand Smile Of course, that may very well be wishful thinking on my part but well, no PayPal charges to dream Smile

You will all know how it turned out by Monday night which is the next taping...
Thanks for all your help and support Smile

Thanks Tod Smile

I will let you know tonight... I'm hoping it will be a pleasant surprise for everyone, my kids and wife Smile

The taping for episode 3 is on Monday...I hope I win 3 so I can be on the 4th Smile

I'm still undecided...still don't know if I'll use the Hartz old lady and the mask OR the ostrich and the dodo which look more fun Smile

Thanks Ken,

I do have a video taken backstage but I will try my best to find a video of the actual TV airing. If I can't find one, I'll post a video of the one taken backstage...it does not show my face and the figure's but it could be the only footage I have unless some friends of mine recorded the show last night.

Got to sleep...big day tomorrow, I hope I get episodes 3 and 4...thanks for all you kind thoughts Smile It will certainly help me a lot Smile

My sincere gratitude to everyone here..."Maraming salamat po!" or "Thank you very much."

I did win 3rd and 4th and will need one more win to be in the "Hall of Fame." The show is in it's 3rd season and only one has won 5 times, a group of talented acrobats. The only group so far in the Hall of Fame. It's lonely to be the only group in that category and I really don't mind keeping them company...but I will need one more win...and I honestly don't know what to do yet.

Used the Harts old lady and vent mask in round 3 and the Axtell ostrich and parrot in the 4th round.


Some pictures here Smile

Thanks Duane and Tod Smile

Tod...I appreciate your PM, thanks for the well wishes and ideas. Smile

I'm thinking of using either the Axtell Big Baby or my Mack figure for the 5th and final round. Smile

For the 5th and final round...I am planning to use Nicolo (Poyner) Smile

Hopefully he will charm the talent scouts and jurors again. Smile

I was planning to do that...but a marionette is not that easy to use Smile It takes a lot of practise which I still lack. The marionette will be a part of my act soon...just not that soon Smile

Off topic: I'm planning to get one of your dog marionettes Smile and perhaps the juggler or skeleton Smile

On Topic: I might stick to the Poyner figure for the 5th and final round Smile
