So it’s been an exciting start hosting at LittleThings and, now that I’ve been there a few weeks, figured it was time to share some highlights from my first month on the job.
From animals trying to bite me, to my AcroYoga debut, to holding a pushup contest against myself, here’s a look at some of the cool stuff you might’ve missed.
Once a week, I’ve had the chance to welcome some amazing animals to my show WildLives. Here’s my favorite episode yet: we had not only a penguin, but a baby leopard AND a cheetah in studio! While the leopard tried me for lunch, thankfully the episode went off without me losing a hand.
Another highlight was me being so inspired by an athletic 10-year-old girl winning a push-up contest that I decided to see how many I could do live on the air. Head to the 32:00 mark in the video below to watch me almost pop a vein from exertion. And enjoy the amazing pun at the 15:30 mark on the house.
That wasn’t the only physical activity I’ve tried on a show, though. I’d never heard of AcroYoga before meeting Sylvie Curci. Next thing you know (at the 11:45 mark), she’s got me lifting her up and afraid I might drop her the wrong way and send her to the hospital.
And, of course, I couldn’t write this without including my dad. We shot a live Father’s Day episode and my producer not only wrangled up a bunch of photos of Dad and me over the years, but also got him to call in live to the show. Check it out at 22:48.
