    11/06/06 - ep 714 - Ballroom Dancer

    11/06/06 – Ballroom Dancing

    Meet Keith. He is a 17 yr old senior at Ella Grasso Tech High School. He is a part time garbage man, part time farm hand, goalie on his school’s soccer team, rock climbs for fun and lifts weights. He is studying bioscience and environmental science at school. He is the biggest guy in school and is known as a “meathead”, a “redneck”, the “muscle bound country boy” he wants to be MADE into a ballroom dancer. His friends say he sucks at dancing.

    Day 1 – Sept 4, 2006

    Keith meets his Made Coach, Marcus. Marcus wants to know why Keith wants to do this. Keith says that he wants to prove to people that he can be graceful and not a “meathead” and that he watched “Dancing with the Stars” and if Jerry Rice can do it so can he. Marcus tells him that they have 6 weeks to get Keith ready to Tango at his schools Harvest Ball Dance..

    Day 2 – first day of dance practice

    Keith meets Marcus at a dance studio and meets his dance partner Ashley. Ashley has been dancing with Marcus for 6 months. It doesn’t go well, Keith is sweating buckets and afraid to step on Ashley. Keith receives his second assignment from Marcus. He has to ask 10 girls at school to audition to be his partner for the Harvest Ball Dance. So the next day he gets 10 girls to meet him and Marcus and a guest judge after school. The guest judge is Keith’s mom. I just love it when a parent has the opportunity to embarrass their child, it is such a precious moment. Two girls are picked; Cassandra and Amber. I thought picking 2 girls was unfair to the girls, but I guess Marcus was hedging his bets.

    Day 3 – where is Keith??? He is supposed to be practicing with the girls.

    Day 11 – Keith has not called either Cassandra or Amber to practice, nor has he practiced on his own. Gee that’s the way to learn how to ballroom dancing. I guess no one told that to Mario (Lopez) or Emmitt Smith from Dancing with the Stars Season 3, else they would have stayed home instead of practicing everyday for 3 to 6 hours. Needless to say Marcus is not a happy camper and takes Keith to a salsa club in Boston on Day 13 to dance and ask girls out. Keith is very uncomfortable dancing with girls he does not know and he is sweating bullets and looking like a hit man and of course strikes out with the girls and finally leaves the club.

    Day 14 – Sept 17th

    Keith calls Marcus and says that this is the biggest mistake he ever made and even thought he hates to quit, he is quitting.

    Day 15

    Keith talks it over with his friends and they tell him not to quit, cause he is not a quitter and he will regret it if he does not try. Keith goes to Marcus and tells him that he is not quitting. Marcus tells Keith that they only have 4 weeks left and that Keith really needs to work on his balance, attitude and rhythm. Keith takes classes in ballet, yoga, jump rope, attends circus school, all to help him in his problem areas.

    Day 21 – pick a partner

    To day is the day Keith has to decide which girl; Cassandra or Amber will partner him at the Harvest Ball Dance.

    Day 22

    Keith tells both Cassandra and Amber that neither has been picked to be his partner and that Ashley will be. At this point I thought this whole thing sucked. Marcus wanted the best girl for Keith’s partner, and then he should have picked Ashley from the beginning.

    Day 29 – Oct 2

    Keith has a lot of trouble showing any kind of expression while he is dancing. Marcus sends him to acting classes and wants Keith to cut his hair. Keith says absolutely NO to cutting his hair.

    Day 32 – Acting Classes

    The instructor says that Keith is very guarded, very tense, and afraid to make a mistake and has not changed his expression during any of the acting exercises done during class. Keith does acknowledge that he does have a hard time showing his emotions and any kind of intimacy. He will work on that and he does trim his hair by 5 inches to show Marcus that he is trying..

    Marcus wonders about Keith’s attitude and commitment to this project so he goes to Keith’s high school and asks the students there what they have heard about Keith’s MADE project. All the kids that Marcus speaks to say that they have heard that Keith is doing is as a joke, or as a bet. Marcus is very upset to hear this. He talks to Keith about what he has heard. Keith says that it is not a joke and that he is totally serious about this project, and that he cut 5 inches of his hair to prove it.

    Harvest Dance Ball

    One thing I must say about filming a dance competition. I prefer long shots and having 2 cameras. That way one camera can focus on the master or long shot and you can see both of the dancer’s entire body and how they move over the floor. The second camera needs to take mid shots and close ups. There were zooms in this sequence that had me getting a little seasick that were zoom up close and back and up close on all the contestants and it made it difficult to watch and you really didn’t get to see what the contestants were doing. It was very poor editing and did not showcase all of Keith’s, Ashley’s and Marcus’s hard work.

    Still Marcus did win but it was hard to tell if it was deserved cause I never really saw what the other more experienced dancers did.

    11/13/06 - ep 715 - Volleyball Player

    11/13/06

    I want to be MADE into a volleyball player.

    Columbus, Ohio
    WorthingtonKilbourne High School
    Sports are very big at WorthingtonKilbourne. If you want people to know you, you have to be on a team. Meet 15 yr old freshman Julie a self avowed coach potato whose main activities are eating and watching a lot of TV. Even her friends, Brittany, Kathy, Lindsey and Becca tease her about her lazy lifestyle. Well, she wants to be Made into a varsity volleyball player. Her friends, family and kids in school don’t think she will do it. The kids in school are also a little afraid of her because she is very loud and aggressive. Julie confesses that she is that way since she was little. Her Dad left and was never around and her mom has a girlfriend. It wasn’t until 5th or 6th grade that the kids in school found out that she had 2 moms and they teased her a lot and she became very defensive. She wants to break down those defensive walls and she thinks she can do that by playing volleyball. She really loves the game and tried out last year. Her skills are OK but her conditioning sucks. The girls are required to run an 8 minute mile and last time she ran a mile her time was 16 minutes.

    Day 1 – June 16, 2006

    Summer Vacation starts

    Meet Jeane, a volleyball coach and fitness contestant. Jeanne tells Julie that they only have 6 weeks and that she needs to do cardio, cardio, cardio and keep a food log.

    Day 2

    Julie runs the mile in 19 minutes, 3 minutes slower than earlier in the year.

    Day 3

    Practice all day on the beach.

    Day 7 – takes gym classes during the summer so does not have to do it during the school yr. Julie has not been keeping a food log. Jeanne is not happy about that and checks out Julies pantry. It is full of junk food. There is no accountability and Jeanne is angry with Julie.

    Day 8 – Julie vents to her girlfriends.

    Day 9 – 5:15am Jeanne drags Julie out of bed for a 2 mile run. Julie refuses to run with Jeanne. Jeanne goes ahead and runs and Julie leaves.

    Day 12 – family goes to Nags Head for vacation. Jeanne shows and trains Julie. Jeanne has figured out that work and Julie are like oil and water, but if she makes it fun for Julie then Julie will do it.

    Day 30/31 – Julie sprains her ankle but the doctor says she can still work out. Jeanne takes her out on a run but Julie does not know how to work through the pain.

    Day 32 – volley ball camp

    Day 36 – runs with Becca and does 1 mile in 12:45. Wants to show Jeanne and runs 1 mile in 11:45.

    Day 37 – Barn Dance at Jeanne’s.

    Next day Julie is getting nervous and anxious about tryouts. She almost does not go. Day one of tryouts goes well, her skills are good and she does well on power sprints. Second day of tryouts is the 1 mile run. Julie does it in 11:07. She cut off 8 minutes of her time in 6 weeks. But unfortunately she does not make the team. Still the Made experience helped her train and see how important conditioning is and that she will try again next yr and will start running now.

    Made 'seasons' are weird. If you have noticed 5 to 6 episodes are made during the April/May time frame, to show the prom, prom queen and king events. 5 or 6 eps are done for the summer shows and if they lead into the beginning of school and any fall festivals such as the Pagent Queen ep and the Ballroom Dancing all the better. Much of the shooting schedule is tied up by the school schedule and that leads to this strange viewing schedule. As far as season 8, I don't know but I don't think season 7 is quite over. As soon as I know I'll post.

    Episode 716 - I want to be MADE Homecoming King

    Episode 716 - shown on 11/20/06 – Homecoming King

    Location:
    Bishop Grimes Junior/Senior High School, a Catholic school located in East Syracuse, New York.

    Student:
    Brandin a 17 yr old senior wants to be his class Homecoming King.

    Brandin comes from a divorced home. His sister lives with his mom and they seem very outgoing, social people. His dad on the other hand is a beer drinking isolated couch potato. Yes, very overweight and comes across very negative and depressed. Brandin lives with his dad and a lot of his down moods come from living with his dad. Brandin used to be the fattest kid in his class but he did want to be fat anymore and lost the weight. Still he craves attention and acts weird and very much the class clown. He carries all his books in a roller suitcase (big and bright blue) that he has named Figaro. He is also a horror film buff and has a massive collection in his closet. He does not participate in any class activities. He just comes home and watches his movies. He does make his own horror films. Thing is he acts out stuff in school and the girls consider him totally undateable. He never had a girlfriend, although he has had a crush on his friend Emily for the last 5 yrs. She does not see him as boyfriend material. He does not want to be known as the class clown any more. Even though he has lost weight he is not happy, something is missing, he wants friends and does not want to be the entertainment. That is why he wants to be MADE into his class’s Homecoming King.

    Day 1 – Sept 6, 2006

    Brandin receives a note to go to the local movie theatre for a screening of a movie. Once he gets there the manager escorts him into the theatre. Brandin is seated in the front row in an empty theatre when a guy shows up and sits down and introduces himself. Brandin is thinking ‘Oh no, some gay guy is trying to pick him up’ and he is very worried. Turns out that it is his MADE coach, Ian. Ian was his high school class Homecoming King and his college class Homecoming King and he was on Survivor Palau. Oh My God, Yes. Its Ian from Survivor, I didn’t even recognize him at his normal weight, he was so skinny on Survivor. Funny I watched him on Survivor and thought his alliance with Tom got him so far, because he did not seem that social yet here he is twice a Homecoming King. Wow, I am floored.

    Anyway Ian tells Brandin that he is not here for a movie screening but for speed dating. Each round of speed dating will last 10 minutes. Brandin meets about 5 girls and they are all creeped out by him, Ian is observing and even he is creeped out by the things Brandin says and does. After the dating seesion Ian asks Brandin how he thinks he did and Brandin thinks he did OK. Ian informs him that he crashed and burned. That he was creepy.

    Day 2

    Kids at school find out what Brandin wants to be MADE into and he gets some razzing. During lunch we meet Ryan, Brandin’s main competition for Homecoming King. Ryan disses Brandin and seems very cocky and that he is a sure thing for Homecoming King.

    Day 3

    Ian gives Brandin an assignment. During school he has to ask 3 girls out and go on dates with them. During lunch he is sitting with Emily but chickens out asking her. 2nd try he goes over to another table and asks out Kelliann and she says yes. 3rd attempt he asks Michelle and it is very awkward because she is sitting right next to Kelliann and was there when Ian asked out Kelliann. Michelle says yes, but tells us it was weird because he just asked out Kelliann not 3 minutes ago. I guess that entire awkward moment went right over Brandin’s head. Later he makes attempt number 4 and asks Emily that Saturday and she says she has to check her schedule because may have to work that weekend. Brandin is pissed because she did not say yes or no.

    Ian gives Brandin another assignment. If Brandin wants to win Homecoming King he needs to be known to his class and he needs to participate. Right now all he does is come home right after school and watches movies. Ian tell Brandin he needs to participate in after school activities.

    Day 7 – 9

    Activity 1: Brandin watches the girls soccer team practice from the stands.

    Activity 2: He acts as the ball boy for the girls tennis team. Emily is on the team and found Brandin very distracting because he is a terrible ball boy.

    Activity 3: He attends a Booster Club Meeting. But it is for the parents not the kids and he is bored.

    Day 10

    Ian checks up on Brandin and asks the soccer team what he did. He sat in the stands. Ian then asks Emily how Brandin did as a ball boy. He was a distraction. Ian then goes to the Booster Club and ask how things went. Even though it was an adult club Ian did not participate.

    Day 11

    Emily tells Brandin that she does not have to work that night so comes over for a date. They go to his room to watch the remake of the Texas Chain Saw Massacre. Brandin acts goofy and makes sound effects. He offers Emily a back massage. It creeps Emily out.

    Day 12

    Ian tells Brandin he must participate more and that hiding in movies is not helping him so he takes all his movies away. Brandin is not a very happy camper.

    Day 14

    Brandin talks to his Dad and tells his him that he needs to get up of the couch and get out and be more social. His dad says why. Brandin is upset cause he does not want to turn into his dad.

    Day 16

    2nd date. Brandin takes Michelle bowling. Ian will be observing and will honk an air horn every time Brandin acts up or weird. Ian tells Brandin to be himself and to talk normally to Michelle and not entertain her. Brandin is getting irritating with the horn honking all the time. It gets better and Brandin quits being the clown and starts just being himself and talking to Michelle and helping her with her bowling. Michelle tells us that is was nice and he didn’t act creepy like he does at school.

    Day 17

    Ian tells Brandin that he needs to form a Homecoming King Committee to help him and that he needs to get rid of Figaro. That Figaro is a security blanket and he does not need it.

    Day 18

    At school Brandin asks people to help on his Homecoming Committee but really does not expect much as he only has had up to 2 people at his house. 13 people show up and he doesn’t know what to do. He asks for ideas and several girls suggest posters and start making them and then the ideas start to fly and he assigns people to them.

    Day 21

    Brandin puts up his posters and also makes an announcement on the school tv channel that the kids need to vote for Brandin and not (Ryan) the other guy. The other guy comment does not go down too well with some kids and Ryan doesn’t like and tells Brandin so. Ryan also continues to diss Brandin.

    Later Branding goes over to his mom’s house and asks his mom and sister for some dating advice. His mom and sister tell him that he can do it and that he has a lot of creepy behaviors and that he needs to replace those. But start out small and he will be successful. He needs to be himself and not the creepy, entertaining Brandin.

    Day 22

    3rd date. Brandin takes Kelliann miniature golfing. It goes very well and he really connects with her. He compliments her by telling her ‘she is hot’. Kelliann thinks the compliment was sweet and not creepy. By the end of the date Brandin realizes that he is over his crush on Emily. But he comes across as very insensitive dismissive guy in his manner. He is ticked that Emily did not respond to him during their date like he wanted her to so he cuts her out of his life.

    Day 23

    The nominations for Homecoming King are to be announced. Brandin is very nervous because he thinks it is too soon for the nominations and hopes he makes the list. 3 guys make the list and Brandin is one of them.

    Day 24

    Ian tells Brandin it is time to pick a date for the Homecoming. Brandin decides to ask Kelliann. Next day at school during lunch he asks her and she says yes. Personally, asking any girl out on a date during lunch is I think setting yourself up for possible failure and humiliation but it seems to work for Brandin. Later that day Emily asks him why he didn’t ask her and he tells her that he felt he had a connection with Kelliann and not Emily. He is very cold and dismissive to her and does not look her in the eye when he tells her this. They are walking down a hall and he is actually walking ahead of her and if trying to lose her. Again I think Brandin is punishing her for not returning his feelings.

    Day 25

    Ian takes Brandin to New York City for a makeover. The first day they consult with a stylist for outfits. Brandin is being himself and is not impressing the stylist at all.

    Day 26

    Brandin hates his haircut and is very moody and hunched over. Ian tells him don’t worry the thing about a haircut is that is will grow out.

    Ian shows Brandin his freshman photos and he looks like a real geek. Ian tells Brandin that even he had to grow and went through some rough patches to get to were he did. Ian then tells Brandin that he needs to prepare a speech for the Homecoming King vote and that it is the perfect opportunity to explain why people should vote for him.

    Day 30

    Today at school is a no uniform day and Brandin has a chance to show of his new clothes and hair and his new bag. Figaro is being left at home. Bye Bye Figaro. The girls at school are very impressed he looks very datable now. Some of the kids both boys and boys react negatively and ask were is Figaro and that his new bag is stupid and that they want Figaro back and the old Brandin back. I’m thinking WOW, that’s an interesting reaction. Maybe the guys don’t want Brandin to change because if a geek and weirdo like Brandin can do it then they don’t have any excuse not to change some of their bad behaviour.

    Day 31 - October 6, 2006

    Ian comes over to Brandin’s house and tells him that although a lot of the kids said they miss Figaro and the old Brandin, what they are really saying is that they miss somebody to laugh at and that Brandin’s speech is an opportunity to explain why Brandin’s transformation is important.

    At school all 3 candidates are given an opportunity to give their speeches. Ryan, Brandin’s big opponent doesn’t even give a speech just a few words saying that they all know him and should vote for him. Brandin gives his speech and explains why he did what he did and many kids are impressed.

    Later that night is Homecoming. Both of Brandin’s parents attend to give him support. His couch potato dad is there to tell Brandin how proud he is of him. Brandin is dancing and participating and some kids note that during previous dances Brandin would just stand in a corner. The results are announced and Brandin wins and is crowned Homecoming King and Kelliann is his Homecoming Queen. Brandin has his very first slow dance with Kelliann and she congratulates him on his dancing. Ah.........

    SuperMade on June 30 noon to 3:30pm

    I thought Made had been canceled.

    Well, This Saturday MTV is showing 3 new episodes of Made from noon to 3:30pm. The first episode is 70 min long. The second episode is 60 min long. The third episode is 80 min long. I think we will see a familiar face or two, from what they said on the preview.

    The TV Guide online listings are calling the episodes "SuperMade".
