So the day of the video, Les went out to greet the guests who needed the expert. Turns out to be THIS:
Amazons streaming "The Fireball Run Adventurally Series"! Yeah, this was a bit more than expected. And THEN, instead of answering questions, the Director, Jay, hands Les a SCRIPT! WHAT? AND he has to MEMORIZE it! Like an ACTOR! Yeah, he was in a bit over his head there!
He had little choice now but just to go with it! The Director/Producer, Two Cameramen, A Scriptwriter, and others set up their equipment and went to work.

Here's Les, Director Jay, and our boss, Mike. Les is just now finding out what he is getting into!
Here Les is taking a breather after "take 8" and after the Director yells at him to show more emotion!! "Take 9" was the charm though. He tried to hold his stomach in during the "takes" and then let it out to rest! Here he is resting!
This was all Pre-Production Taping and they will be back in September to tape the Participants in action. For those of you who don't know about this Series ( I had never heard of it ), it is sort of like "The Amazing Race" with participants this time visiting historical sites and having to do something at each site. So Les will have to be in the next taping as well. They told him to wear the same outfit so it looks like it is being taped on the same day.
This Series won't air until September of 2018! But you can be sure we are going to have a Red Carpet Showing of Les' BIG DEBUT!
In the meantime, check out the other Series on Amazon. They have had 11 Series so far!
Yup! You never know what is going to happen in this job of being Resident Director of a 49 room mansion! Stay tuned for more adventures!
