Please MTV, pimp my personality

Have you ever watched MTV's MADE? I remember the first episode that I saw. It was dubbed in German and all I understood was that each episode was about one ugly duckling becoming a swan. And now that I'm the only one to dominate the TV I have started to watch it from MTV Finland again. If you have not seen or heard about MADE, here is a short Wikipedia description:
The series follows teens who wish to be "made" into singers, athletes, dancers, skateboarders, etc. The teens are joined by a "Made Coach", an expert in their chosen field, who try to help them attain their goals over the course of several weeks. Made documents the process the teens undergo as they try to achieve their goal.
And I find it truly inspiring. Those kids try out something they have only been dreaming of. Usually it's something conflicting too. Like lately (I don't know what season they're airing here) they have turned a fat chic to a ballerina and a very girly girl to a hockey player. I guess the main point of MADE is that whatever we want to achieve, it is possible with hard work. It is possible to redefine who you are. You can be a fat chic. Or ballerina. It's up to you.

So what I would I want to be if I could be "made"? This is easy one to answer. I would like to be made into a pole dancer. Though I don't want to have like stripper identity, I just would like to try out pole dancing. Seriously. Have you seen those amateur pole dancing videos on Youtube? It looks like so much fun! Though I don't really care for the dancing part either but the super whirly things around the pole...

And it would be something conflicting too. I am clumsy and I'm always bumping into furniture and walls and stuff. I can't even dance since it feels like I had three legs or more. I'm just completely hopeless. And I'm not so feminine with my moves, I think I even walk quite manly. Not to mention that I happen to be a nerd and it seems that nerds are not so into sports anyways.

So please MTV, pimp my personality?


  1. Hmm, oiskohan se MTV:n tekemä muutos ihan kestävä... Kai jokaisesta tulee "lätkäpelaaja" jos sille puetaan hokikamat päälle, opetetaan vähän sääntöjä ja työnnetään luistimet jalassa jäälle. Sitten kaikki "kaverit" ja "perheenjäsenet" katsomoon hurraamaan ja kommentoimaan että vou mikä muutos.

    Ja... ois niin kiva, jos MTV näyttäis videoitakin, vaikka onhan noi sarjat ihan viihdyttäviä. Mun suosikki on Hills.

  2. Mun suosikki taitaa olla Room Raiders, vaikka sitä ei olekaan pitkään aikaan näytetty. Tuo tosin juontaa alkunsa siltä ajalta, kun meillä näkyi vain Saksan MTV ja Room Raiders oli likimain ainoa sarja, jota ei oltu dubattu saksaksi :P

    Virgin Diaries oli myös mainio.
