I live in London UK and saw an ad in a local newspaper by a TV production company looking for volunteers between 25 and 60 years old who were prepared to diet and exercise seriously for two months and be filmed. Just out of curiosity I replied putting in some good - and true - reasons as to why they might be interested and thought no more of it. Anyway they just called me up to say I have been shortlisted, the producer will come see me next week, apparently it's for an infomercial on a shopping channel for some sort of hand weight thing. So if I were picked, and wanted to do it, my kids wouldn't get too embarrassed as it isn't exactly high-profile stuff!
Don't know too much about it - yet - but I would guess it's some sort of American product going on sale in the UK! I also read in a magazine this week - tell me if this is true - that the latest craze in the US is for people to walk round all day wearing ankle weights!
Any guesses, people?
