Re: have you or someone you know ever been on TV
Actually, I just realized that I know quite a few.
I attended the last Buick Open a few years back, and you could see my Dad and I on the tee to #10 when Tiger Woods teed off. I think I was on TV when I was really young, too. They used to have a local channel, and they would show things that happened over the weekend. I was either in a parade or was at some kind of function with my grandma.
My brother was the lead in a commercial for a local theme park about 12 years ago. That was regional, and the first time it came on was during The Simpsons.
I have a cousin that created an Internet TV show about 6-7 years ago that got quite a bit of attention.
I also know someone who was the stand-in for Tobey Maguire on the first Spider-Man movies and he's done a few other movies. One of the ladies that was a runner-up in a season of The Bachelor used to sit behind me in class. One of my buddies was in a local rodeo. I know a few people who are related to some famous people. . . we had a brother of Tim Allen and the wife of Brian Kelly (Notre Dame's football coach) teach at our school. As for wrestling-related, my friend is an advisor, and she knew Matt Cappotelli from one of the earlier Tough Enough seasons and OVW (he played football for WMU, I believe, and was there when I was. We may have had classes together and I didn't know) and my friends know Kaitlyn from WWE. I know someone who has been on TV as an orca trainer. I knew a few athletes, too, but they mostly played overseas.
I'm sure I'm forgetting some folks, too. I know there were some extras in there, because they've filmed American Pie 2, Road to Perdition, Pet Sematary (that one was before I lived there, but I heard someone talk who wanted to be an extra at the time), and Empire Falls around places I was living or have lived, and people went to be in the films (I think I even got my cat at a Humane Society near one of the cemeteries where "Pet Sematary" was filmed).
