Tip #1: In three sentences or less, write out who you are and what you have to offer that is unique from what is already out there.

Tip #2:  Spend one week watching local and national TV– like from WUSA9 to The Today Show to Ellen. Educate yourself . Make a youtube video of yourself showing your expertise in action- let the power of the internet work for you. Insider Secret: Dr. Oz staff scours the internet when looking for potential guests for The Dr. Oz Show. 

Tip #3: Write up 3 pitches. Make sure they have a hook and think visual.  It’s all about the tease.. so fill in the blank when thinking of your pitch: “When we come back ___________” 

BONUS:  Come up with 3 stories form your life that you can use for interviews. Being a ‘relatable’ guest will make you more appealing to producers and the people booking the shows.

    I wonder how much hair is in these DC Cupcakes. I love cupcakes, women and reality television so I figured I’d love this show. The fact that these women are not hot is fine. Reality TV should be reality and how many bakeries employ beautiful women anyway?
    What I have a problem with is that these women are constantly dangling their hair over the cupcakes. I’m originally from DC and I worked in plenty of DC kitchens back in the day. Basic health department rules stipulate that when you are preparing food, and your hair is past a certain length, that you need to wear a hair net or a hat.
    Maybe the producers are telling them not to wear hats during filming for esthetic reasons. But ladies, for gosh sakes, when you are near or prepping the food, please wear a hat. Until then, I wouldn’t recommend anybody eat anything at this Georgetown bakery. That is, unless you like you pulling a 3 foot piece of hair out of your mouth. Yuck!
