From Point Loma (Waitress)
I’ve been on TV twice. Once was in Europe. I was running a marathon there, and it’s small in Europe. I lived there for a while. They showed me talking to a runner. Then I was on the Disney Channel when I was younger. That was a lot of fun. I got to throw paint at people.
From University City (Letter Carrier)
Yeah. You probably saw me on TV. I was the mailman that was at the house in University City when that F-18 went down. I heard a bang bang and thought things were turning ghetto. I looked up and saw the guy ejected out and wasn’t sure which way to move. I was interviewed by all the news stations, and women started giving me gratuitous hugs after that. Now people drive by the area, and if they see me, they’ll ask me what it was like being there. I was interviewed by stations in Australia, which is where I’m from. I then got a bunch of calls and emails from people I hadn’t heard from in years.
From South Park (Dog Day-Care)
There were different times I have. When I was little, in a commercial for Pool Town; I saw the spot run a few times. I was on Food Network for Pizzeria Luigi’s when I worked there. And in between those two times, when I was 15, my friends and I were on the news. We were in line for an Aerosmith concert, and we were just yelling and screaming, waving our hands in the air.

I hate to admit this, but I was on Jerry Springer. This was before the days of all those fights. It was about a woman stalking me. My friend signed us up for it, and there were the three of us there. They did a lot of shady stuff. They had an empty chair, and they wouldn’t let you hear what the other people were saying. They gave us these things called “Springer money,” which you could spend all around that area. They put us up in a nice hotel in Chicago. And, I also got on Talk Soup, back when Greg Kinnear was hosting. They showed the highlights from [the Springer show].
From Mount Helix (Contractor)
I was interviewed by Rod Luck. Is that the guy’s name? The one from KUSI? My dad owned a company; it’s a series of stores that deals with outdoor and adventure equipment. We were both interviewed at the park by him and on TV.
From Imperial Beach (Pipe Fitter)
I was on TV when I was ten years old. A guy was killed down the street. That was when I lived in L.A. And Fox News was there. It was around 7:00 p.m., and I just rode by on my skateboard and ended up being in the shot.
