    I loved Genevieve. She was just so completely clueless and dorky but had such a great heart at the same time. Her goal was so outrageous but cool at the same time.

    01/09/06 -Stephanie

    Well, I guess we will be in Arizona for a while cause this week's Made participant wants to become Miss Teen America.

    Meet Stephanie, a high school senior, who is considered a Goth/Freak and is a member of the marching band. She can play flute, piccolo, bass clarinet and trumpet.

    There are 3 major cliques in this high school, the Jocks, the Hicks(Cowboys) and the Freaks. Each has staked out their territory, a hall and taken it over. There are called Jock Hall, Hick Hall and Magic Hall. Kids that don't belong to the cliques that that rules a particular area are yelled at, "get out of here" and have things thrown at them, cans, paper balls etc.... Makes the argument for home schooling look good.

    Stephanie's first homework is not to wear any black and walk up and down the halls in school saying hi to everyone. Stacy gives Steph a pink camisole to wear. Stacy also checks out Stephs closet and it is all black and oversize. Stacy comments that one of the first things Steph needs to do wear color and more fitted items.
    Stephanie has dreamed of participating in the Miss Teen America since she was a little girl, she wants the kids in school to take her seriously she wants to be Made into a girly girl. After watching her toss a baseball around with her dad and then go shooting with him that may be a tall order. By the way her dad is a motorcycle cop. He's cool.

    Stephanie's Mom and Dad are all for her trying the pagent but I like how they both say that she needs to "work for it".

    None of the kids in school think she will be successful at it, friends and non friends alike.

    During a photography class the kids have a guest speaker come in an talk about how "yes, you can make a living being a photographer". The guest speaker says she needs a model to demonstrate how to take photos. She picks Stephanie and has her walking and posing for the camera. She comments that Stephanie needs a lot of work on her walk and that she is her Made Coach. Meet Stacey. Coach Stacey was Miss Arizona 1997 and went on to the Miss America pagent.

    Sorry this took so long to get together I started writing earlier in the week and got interrupted that is why there is this double post.

    Stephanie's Mom and Dad are all for her trying the pageant but I like how they both say that she needs to work for it .

    None of the kids in school think she will be successful at it, friends and non friends alike.

The guest speaker says she needs a model to demonstrate how to take photos. She picks Stephanie and has her walking and posing for the camera. She comments that Stephanie needs a lot of work on her walk and that she is her Made Coach. Meet Stacey. Coach Stacey was Miss Arizona 1997 and went on to the Miss America pagent.

    Stephanie's first homework is not to wear any black and walk up and down the halls in school saying hi to everyone. Stacy gives Steph a pink camisole to wear. Stacy also checks out Stephs closet and it is all black and oversize. Stacy comments that one of the first things Steph needs to do wear color and more fitted items.

    Of course the ugly head of I will do anything but not really rises it’s ugly head and Steph decides to wear the pink top with a floor length black denim shirt with chains. Not little tiny chains that tinkle and look like fringe but 2 big 6 ft sweeps that attach from one hip pocket to the other. She goes walking up and down all the halls at school smiling and saying hi to everyone. Needless to say she feels embarrassed and humiliated and it did not go well. Later Stacey asks her how that went and Steph told her. Stacey comments that the point of the assignment was to appear friendly and approachable and that chains and black denim do not at all scream approachable.

    Steph’s 2nd homework assignment is to put on a dress and high heels at the state fair and Stacey’s first tiara and go ask people what they think is so great about living in Arizona. Steph admits that the only reason she lives there is because her parents do. The other interviews do not go well and Stephs feet hurt from wearing high heels and of course she breaks down and cries. One thing I do notice is that went Steph starts wearing more feminine fitted clothes is that she is a little plump and puggy. Don’t they have physical education classes in schools anymore?

    During these assignments Steph manages to get a date with a guy named Rob. A truly classic moment happens when Rob shows up at the house and Stephanie’s police officer father interrogates the date. This is the moment parents live for, intimidating teenagers, cause we all were and we know what they are thinking. I laughed but Stephanie was embarrassed by her parental units behavior. The date went well. But later during the show she saw Rob kiss another girl at school and got all mad and confronted him and got the but I don’t feel that way about you answer. Ah, poor Steph.

    Next, homework assignment. Stephanie has a fish bowl filled with pageant questions. She goes around school asking kids to pick out a slip of paper from the fish bowl and ask her a pageant type question. Some she answers well and others not. But she does introduce herself to a lot of people in the various halls.

    Next, homework assignment. Steph meets Stacey at the mall and they go swimsuit shopping. Steph is very self conscious of her body and does not like any of the 2 piece swimsuits. Here we also see that she still has a lot of baby fat on her thighs tummy and upper arms. She also does not carry herself well and needs to work on her posture. Steph has another crying jag in the changing room because she does not like her body and how it looks in a swimsuit. Stacey mentions to her that she also does not have the best body but has won several swimsuit competitions because of her body language and how she carried herself.

    Stacey, Steph and Steph’s mom go dress shopping and have a great time, out of all the selections I must admit that Stephanie did look good in that white number. May be she can recycle it for her senior prom.

    Stacey then tells Stephanie to ask 2 girls out to a Girly Party at Stacey’s house. Steph must ask one girl from Hick Hall and one girl form Jock Hall. The trio arrive at Stacey’s house and meet with about 10 of Stacey’s friends. Stacey annouces that tonight is a party to make Steph more girly. They all do the nails, makeup and hair things, there are pillow fights and food. During one of the talks the girls that Steph brought talk about the cliques in their high school and how they are intimidated walking down Magic Hall (Steph is amazed that these kids are intimidated by the Freaks) and how kids are yelled at and have things thrown at them. I hope that after seeing this show the school board does something about this cause I wouldn’t want to attend that school. It seems that a potential shooting could happen there if a kid snaps because of the pressure.

    There is a school dance that is for the school band members and usually Steph and her friends have a great time there. Tonight she is given the sold shoulder by her friends who complain that she is changing and they don’t like it. She is not acting like who she was. Funny how when someone tries something different, go outside there box that scares their friends and they react like this. Its only 6 wks.

    Its pageant time. Stephanie has a horrible time trying to dance in high heels while practicing the opening sequence. She is a little overwhelmed by it all. But during the pageant something happens and Stephanie finds her inner Goddess/ woman and her confidence just blooms. Stephanie does not even make the top ten but that was not the point she found herself and she is just blossoming and that was the whole point of this Cinderella moment. Guess what, she did win Miss Congeniality.

    01/16/06 - I wanna be a Skater Girl

    Hey, we are back on the East Coast today about an 1 hour drive from New York City. Themi, is Greek and has very strict parents who don't let her do anything. She is just finishing her junior year at Mahopac High School. She is popular, studies, and is bit of a goody goody. She is named after a Greek saint and unfortunately, MTV decided not to Subtitle the name cause I know I can't spell it and she goes by the nickname Themi. (Did a little googling and it might be Euphemia). Themi wants to rebell by being Made into a skateboarder. She annouces this at dinner and it did not go over very well with her parents. I know that they mean well, but they need to let the reins go a bit and let Themi have some real world experiences else she will go hog wild when she is away at college. I saw more ministers kids who were kept on such a tight rein when they were at home that the minute they had any kind of freedom at college and a bit of cash, they were drunk, high and loosing whatever kind of virginity they had in as many differents types of areas, and experiences they could do in a short as time possible. The results were not very pleasant.

    When Themi annouces to her friends what she wants to be made into they all have doubts, especially her best friend Allie, who says that Themi has trouble standing and has broken her foot 3 times just by tripping over it so she doubts that Themi will so well as a skater girl.

    Its finals week and Themi gets to meet her Made Coach at a skatepark. He is Ben Rittaco. She wants to make a good first impression so she goes to meet him in a short jean minishirt. Needless to say the skirt did not make a good impression. Its hard to skate in a miniskirt, but the other guys a the skate park start to hang around just to check her out, but their opinions of her success are not very high.

    Summer starts and Themi has 5 wks to train before she is in her first competition.

    First homework assignment is a scavenger hunt. Themi has to skate to all the locations on the list and have someone take a polariod of her there. She ends up taking her car and driving with her skateboard to every location. She says it would be impossible for her to skate everywhere in one day.

    Themi then meets her second Made Coach, Tim O'Conner, who is responsible for teaching her the skater lifestyle. His posse shows up at her house wearing weirds hats and masks and do not leave that good and impression with her parents. They take her to New York City to skate, learn some new tricks and get a makeunder.

    Tim and his crew show Themi how to skate in the streets of the city and how to stop and pop the skateboard up in case a car comes by. How to have an attitude and do a couple of hand signs, the nose wipe. They also try to teach her a new trick called and Ollie, which is a type of jump. You slid your foot up to the front of the board and do a little jump. They also take her to a skate store where they get her some new clothes, especially some looser fitting pants. Themi fights them on the clothes especially the pants but the crew prevails. Later back home practicing at the skate park themi realizes that the looser pants are better and give her more freedom to move better and be more flexible.

    Themi throws a pool party for her friends but Coach Ben crashes it and takes her away to practice, her best friend Allie is not happy at all.

    Later Themi invites Ryan, the best skate boarder in school, over to watch some videos of skateboarding. Both her mom and dad are out but she does call her mom to let her know that Ryan is at the house. Her mom goes into red alert mode and calls her husband and both arive at the house. They introduce themselves to Ryan, but come into the tv room every 5 seconds checking up on the kids that they make it so uncomfortable for Ryan he leaves. All this time Ryan and Themi are sitting on the opposite ends of the coach with a couple of pillows in between.

    Next, Themi is back practicing with Ben and learning how to do a drop in. Basically, a drop in is when you stand on the top of the ramp with the back foot down on the back end of the skateboard and the back end of the skateboard is up to the edge of the ramp. The front foot in up in the air on top of the board. You step up and on to the board and go down. This does not go well. At one point they are practicing the drop in and Coach Ben has this little 5 yr demonstate. That entire scene is so cute, this 5 yr old kid has a helmet and padding on and is barely 2 ft tall and he can do a drop in but Themi who is a good 3 feet taller and 10 yrs older cannot. Finally, she does it but ends up spraining her ankle during another practice and is told to keep off the ankle for a bout a week.

    During a field trip Themi and her Coach Ben go back into New York and meet Tony Hawk, who is the best skater boarder ever and has a couple of video games named after him. He gives her a pep talk and signs her skateboard.

    part 2 - Made comments

    Sorry about that my keyboard froze up and I had to logoff and backin.

    Later, back home Themi is talking to her parents and they tell her that since it will be her senior year that they have decided to loosen up restrictions and have decided it will be ok for her to date. Themi is thrilled.

    Themi also goes out with her girlfriends and talks skateboarding but they don't know what the heck she is talking about and she has a little will her best friend Allie, who in a previus confessional complained how hard it is not to be able to hang out with her best friend everyday cause she is too busy skate boarding. Themi, replies that Allie works during the summer so she doesn't see her that much either.

    Themi then goes to attend a 3 day skate boarding camp. Here she gets to meet other girls who also like to skate board and that is all everyone likes to talk about. Coach Ben is trying to teach her how to do a grind, which is a type of turn and another type of jump. There are a lot of falls and crashes especially the night before the competition. Practice finishes at 2am and Themi needs to be up by 7am.

    The day of the competition Themi's mom and dad and her girlfriends arrive to cheer her on. When it is Themi's turn she starts and immediately falls. She gets up and starts again and does her routine cleanly this time even doing a little jump with a hand grab that she had been trying to learn.

    Another successful Made adventure completed.

    Next week its Alexa the Rocker Chick.

    Hey, wait a minute that will be 4 chick flicks in a row, where are all the guys that want to be MADE??????

    Recap - 01/23/06 Good Girl gone Bad Ass

    We are in Bow , New Hampshire.

    Meet Alexa, a Marching Band Geek and all around good girl. She is 16 and a junior. She feels overshadowed by her older sister who had better grades, more friends and was the captain or president of everything in school and is now study medicine at John Hopkins University. Can we say overachiever.

    Alexa is an aspirig opera singer, but very self conscious, worries too much and plays it safe. She wants to find her wild side by being Made into a Rocker Girl and winning her schools Battle of the Bands.

    Day 1 Alexa goes to meet her Made coach on Dead Man's Curve. Instead a pack of bikers show up and surround her. Then a black SUV shows up and out comes her coach Frank, he is the lead singer in a rock band called Waltham. They are out of Boston. Frank asks her reasons why does she want to be a rocker. Then he gives her an assignment to go say she is a bad ass to all the biker guys. They are not convinced. Then the whole crew goes to Alexa's spanish class. I must say the teacher is cool about it. Then they go home to meet Alexa's mom. Mom just feels everyone coolaid and homemade chocolate chip cookies. Frank goes up to Alexa's room which is done in pastels, the mosquito netting and beach murals. He rips apart her netting and spray paints her walls with the words The Fuel and says she needs to write on her walls all her pain and anquish cause that is the fuel for the songs a rocker chick sings. Oh BTW where are your songs?? Oh, I don't know somewhere.

    1st homework assignment write done 5 very personal things and get up in class and tell them.

    So next day Alexa gets up and says:
    1: she is jealous of her sister
    2: she will do anything not to be like her sister
    3: she resents that her friends are more successful then her
    4: she doesn't think she will ever find true love again
    5: she is terrified of failing life

    Frank is moved and felt it is very real but he asks that is not all, (reasons 6 and 7) that on the wall in her bedroom she also wrote that the kids at school piss her off and that she feels most are fake.

    He makes her go back and do it again and add 6 and 7.

    The feed back from the confessionals is that most of the kids respected her for what she did and most agree with her assessments.

    Day 5 Frank meets her at a tatto shop and asks where does she want her new tattoo?? ha ha Its time for a present her new quitar.

    Day 13 and Alexa is checking out the competition and she still does not have a band. She does have a song and Frank likes it until she won't tell what it is a bout. Later she does and says its about her boyfriend, who only got close to her to get to her best friend and then broke up with her to be her best girlfriends boyfriend. He gives her advice about how to put together a melody and since she likes Liz Phair to use her as inspiration

    Its time she needs to get a band together. Alexa holds an audition and gets a Drummer, her friend Becca, a sax player, and 2 quitarists, Joe and Jordan.

    Day 23 - Frank takes Alexa to a Liz Phair concert and she gets to met her backstage and listens to her song and gives advice about it and how to project her self.

    Back home the band practices for the first time and gets a name, Fairfight.

    Day 30 - Frank comes to practice and is not pleased. He gives advice especially as to how Alexa should sing, cause people need to hear her message and how the group can sound better.

    Day 33 - apple hiking with her family and big sister, Alexa is not that pleased.

    Day 37 - the 2 quitarist get into a fight, Joe says that Jordan has been really insulting to him and he is quitting the band. Alexa is calling Jordan to find out what is going on. Much drama and phone calls and Jordan apologizes to Joe and the band is back.

    Soon its makeover day and Becca and Alexa get great haircuts and Alexa goes this brillant red and new rocker clothes.

    At a rehearsal just days away from the Big Battle of the Bands Frank is very unhappy with the ending of the show cause it is a trainwreck a calamity noone comes in on time. Not until right before they go on does Alexa have an idea how to solve the problem. She tells the group to stop at a certain point and just let it be her voice that ends the song.

    Her group ends up second.

    She has a beautiful heartfelt mesage to Frank, thanking him for being her coach and that he may have felt he was pushing her hard, she needed it to change and she is very grateful to him. That was very sweet.

    Alexa is unique in that she tried and did some very uncomfortable things but she didn't whine about it and bulk at changing. She knew it was time and she embraced it. I don't think she really is a rocker chick but that wall or shield she put around her wild side was torn down and now she is more the real deal then she was before.

    1/30/06 - Fat Girl wants to be Made

    Danielle, goes to Schuykill Valley High School in Reading, PA. In the middle of no where. Well, Reading is the outlet capital of the tristate area in fact in revitalized its economy by doing so. Folks here down in DC will go up to Reading to shop because of the discounts. Reading is also only an hour away from Philadelphia, not a small town by any means.

    Danielle does not belong to any clique but is known as the fat girl, she shows us photos of her when she was young and she was a normal weight up to age 13. Her father died suddenly and she was very close to him and I guess she stress ate, and ate for comfort and slept for comfort and sounds as if she was very grief stricken and depressed. Her brother Jacob is also a bit heavy , but Mom is normal wieght. Mom says that Danielle is lazy and needs to go out an do something, move instead she spends all her time on her computer. She has 64 girl buddies and 125 guy buddies that she keeps in touch with and goes into massive withdrawal when she does not have access to a 'puter. In fact she met her boyfriend, Justin online. They chatted online for 3 yrs and when he graduated from high school he moved from New York to PA to be with her. OK, she will be a senior and he iis what 18, 19 and instead of trying to educate himself and better himself and aquire a skill set that can help him in life and help support a family, he moves to PA to be with his girlfriend, who is still in high school. Dependency issues or something there. That really needs to be discussed and looked into.

    Anyway Danielle wants to start taking care of herself and be a better, healthier person and she wants to lose 60 lbs for homecoming, which is what traditionally at the end of September, so how is she going to do this. Especially as her friends say she is the least active person they know and took a taxi ride for 5 blocks because she was tired and did not want to walk that far.. It looks as if this was initially filmed at the end of school in May and for the next 2 months Danielle does nothing but sleep and sit on her 'puter. I mean 60 lbs in 4 months is doable if you exercise a lot and reduce your diet and lose 15 lbs a month, just under 4 lbs a week especially at her age where her metabolism is still running high. Not if you sit on your butt for 2 months of the summer.

    Day 1 - August 1, 2005
    Danielle wakes up to the loudspeaker voice of her Made coach Julie. Julie starts Danielle out with a 3 minute step up and step down exercise and then general fitness. At her weight in Danielle is 43% BMI -body mass index for her age she needs to be down at about 20% and is 280 lbs. I wish we knew how tall she is cause she seems to be about 5'8" or 5'10". She carries a lot on the fat in her gut and thighs. Julie has a surprise for Danielle. The next day she is going to Camp Shane for 3 weeks. Camp Shane is a fat camp and hopefully, D willl exercise and learn about nutrition. D wants to lose 20 lbs at camp. Julie also informs Danielle, that at the end of her training sessions she will be running in a 5K race. This session will be 8 wks longs.

    The next day driving to camp she already misses Justin, her support group, and whines about having the top bunk and not making any friends. Ah, how old are you again Danielle. After weight in it turns out that Danielle has gained 3 lbs and is now 283.4 lbs. She is so out of shape she needs one of the other girls to help push her up into her bunk bed.

    Up early, something Danielle hates to do, then its 2 periods of Tai Bo, and hour of general fitness, then soccer then volleyball. She just wants to go home and she doesn't want to socialize with any of the girls she says whats the point of socializing with the boys at night as she already has a boyfriend and instead says inside writing letters to Justin. Danielle also made alot of snippy comments to some of the other girls saying why are you here you are skinny?? These girls reply that they may be skinny compared to her but not compared to the kids back home.

    Day 10 of Made
    Day 7 at camp - weight in 5 lbs lost.
    Danielle calls Julie and tells her but D is dissappointed that she did not lose more.

    Day 13 - assignment 1 from Julie run 10 laps around the track in 30 minutes. She would not have done it with out help from some of the other girls. through out the 3 weeks Julies gives her written assignments and D does then all.

    Day 20 - August 19 the last day of camp. D realizes that she did have fun and did make friends. At the final weighin she has lost 14 lbs altogehter. 5 the first week, 5 the second week and 4 the last week. Not the 20 she wanted but I think she didn't realize how hard it would be. You can see it her face. Danielle does do her eyes and she does have a pretty face but on Day 33 it is September 1 and the first day of school and no one really notices that she has lost weight although she is telling everyone she went to fat camp and lost 15 lbs. OK, when you weight 283 lbs 15 pounds is nothing. people are not going to notice unless you lose a significant amount that changes the volume of your body in Danielles case if she had lost 30 or 40 lbs it would have made a big difference.

    Day 34-39
    Back to working out with Julie and going to the grocery store to read labels. Corn Syrup is a bad thing. Also known as HFCS- high fructose corn syrup, at one point sugar was very expensive and food manufacturs needed a cheap substitute and found it in corn syrup and they put it in everything. Unfortunately, HFCS does not trigger "our stomach is full" response and people tend to eat more than they should. HFCS is blamed as one of the chemicals that have made us a fatter nation. That and not moving.

    Julie starts conditioning Danielle for the 5K and weighs her. D is 270, she has gained a pound she is really depressed and next day at school Day 40 she wants to give it all up. Thats when her second Made Coach arrives. She is Maiysha a plus size model from NYC who has come to help D work on her image issues. Maiysha has a walkoff with D in the cafeteria in the middle of lunch period. Later that day Maiysha checks out D's closet and all D has is tshirts, jeans, flip flops and hoodies.

    Day 42 - Sept 10, 2005
    Maiysha take Danielle to New York to go shopping. She is whinny but finally they find some girly things she can wear and she must wear a skirt the next day at school.

    The reaction the next day at school is very postive.

    Day 50
    Maiysha invited Danielle back to NYC and to watch her at a photo shoot. M convinces D to try it too and I must say I thought that D has a very pretty face and nice high cheek bones and does her eyes very well.

    Day 52 - 56, Sept 20- 24
    1 week left to the 5K.
    Problems with Justin, he has been visiting his family and friends back in NY and thinks he might stay.

    Day 57 - Sept 25
    Meets Justin on the border of NY and PA. Tells him she needs a boyfriend that motivates her. She wants to go out and do things together like a normal couple. They have been fat and lazy (Justin is not fat BTW) and she feels that she has been a caterpillar and now wants to be a butterfly. Justin agrees to support her.

    Day 61 - Sept 29
    After 8 wks of training it is the day of the 5K race. Danielle goes to her final weight in and is 260 lbs. She has lost 24 lbs. Justin and several of her friends race with her but at one point her ankle hurts so much she wants to quit but Julie comes and tells her to think of something else and run through the pain. Danielle finishes in 50:24.

    Danielle final comments are that you need to believe in yourself else nothing will happen if you don't.

    2/6/06 - science geek to breakdancer

    Welcome to Redmond, Washington 30 miles east of Seattle and home to Microsoft.

    Jason Yu is a science geek, writes for the school paper, corrects peoples grammer when he talks to them, and claims not to know what to say to people so he doesn't socially interact with them. Besides studying all the time he also works parttime making smoothies. He wasnt to be able to connect to new people he wants to be known for something other then being smart he wants to be MADE into a breakdancer.

    His friends Dan and John don't think he can do it and neither does his study partner, Michelle. She saids it's one month before school ends, you have SATs and finals. Even Jason's 10 yr old sister, Anne, who has been dancing since she was 3 doesn't think he can do it. Jason goes into tell his parents what he wants to do and he is afraid that they will not approve and he is surprised when they OK it.

    May 19, 2005 Jason meets Mr. Freeze his made coach, Mr. Freeze is from the first generation of Breakdancers and is part of the Rock Steady Crew. Mr. Freeze is his b-boy name. In 5 weeks Jason will enter a breakdancing contest. Mr. Freeze starts Jason off learning the basic 6 step.

    Day 10 - May 28

    Jason and Mr. Freeze go to Chinatown to a breakdancing festival. Jason does mention that the minute people see him, that as a Chinese - American they expect him to behave a certain way, that is one reason he wants to breakdance. During the festival Mr. Freeze is called out to give a demo and afterwards introduces Jason as his apprentice and gives him a chance to at least try to dance but Jason refuses. You really see the box that Jason is in. He is not comfortable at all dancing and does not want to show how poorly he is doing, he doesn't want to humiliate himself but eventaully he is going to have to perform. Mr. Freeze is very dissappointed.

    Day 11

    Mr. Freeze takes Jason street dancing in Seattle and they meet the Massive Monkeys, this breakdancing group holds the world title and dances at the Seattle Supersonics games. Jason practices with them and they give him some tips.

    Day 22

    Mr. Freeze tells Jason that he has to connect with some bdancers at school. The best bdancers at Redmond HS are Mustafa and Nate and Jason goes up to them and says how are they doing, and how he practiced with the Massive Monkeys and the conversation went down from there.

    Then Mr. Freeze tells Jason that they are going to a dace-off that Friday, but Jason does not want to go because that Saturday are th SATs. Both guys are being stubborn about this (Personally, If Jason isn't ready to take the SATs by now one extra day will not do him any good. Jason ends up talking to his dad about it expecting to hear, 'SATs are more important than breakdancing' but his dad is go for an 1 or 1 1/2 it won't hurt.

    Day 26 - June 13

    Mr. Freeze introduces Jason to Little Wicket, Little Wicket tries to introduce Jason more into the bdancing culture but its hard to get Jason to relax and talk cool and get into the rythm of speaking slang. At home his sister, Annie, asks him 'why are you talking so funny'????.

    At this point Jason has a talk with one of his friends who tell him that he is changing and that they don't recognize him anymore and that they feel they are loosing him. Its amazing how fragile the ego is especially in high school kids that someone does something different for 4 wks and people freak out that you are changing.

    That weekend Mr. Freeze takes Jason to Las Vegas for a makeover. He get his hair cut and styled and the front part dyed red. The best part is watching him get his eyebrows waxed. Then they get some bdancing clothes.

    Later, Jason meets Mr. Wiggles, another breakdancer, who asks Jason to show him his stuff and Mr Wiggles is not impressed and tells Jason so. Back in the limo Jason is upset and Mr. Freeze asks him what happened. Jason tells him that Mr. Wiggles did not like his routine and if it was so bad why is he doing this; and Mr. Freeze says that can't stop Jason. Later that day Jason ends up dancing on the streets of Las Vegas and does well and gets his confidence back. Mr. Freeze is proud of Jason ans he feels that Jason has got his flava and he has earned a b boy name. WHIZKID.

    Day 33 - June 20

    Its the first day back at school with his new look. He gets some positive responses.

    Finally, it the day of the Ultimate B Boy Competition. They are 5 people entered. ChaCha and Whizkid are the final two and have a dance off. Whizkid comes in second.

    If nothing else this entire experience was a confidence booster and that's what his parents say he needed and he found doing breakdancing. Even Annie said he did good, and that's high praise from a kid sister. Also it was good to see Jason go outside his box and it was good to see a guy get Made and whine about it.

    One of my little sister's friend told me MADE was going to their school all the way in Massachusetts! He showed me the application and everything. They're auditioning TODAY!

    The area is in Lowell, Mass. The MADE crew is going to their high school. Pretty cool! I don't know many people down there like my sister do but at least someone.
