"Big Wigs in Space: Florida
- Part 1" - December 28
Sorry to make this brief,
but we're going into patented Brian Moore Hurry-Up! Mode
on this particular ep.
Remember not too long ago we had Richard Branson all
over the news publicizing that the next frontier he was
going to break into would be space tourism. This would
be close to the X Prize award time. Well, this week, not
too different from that little venture a while back.
Before anyone goes into a mighty rocketship, though, we
have to meet up with Richard. Hes on Fisher Island near
Miami, as he sets the challenge: they have 48 hours to
create 30-second spots for space travel and tourism to
further the vision of commercial space travel as
reality. Even has a name. "Virgin Galactic". Wow. And
after all is said and done, TWO people will be left to
go home on the tarmac.
Team 1: Shawn and Sara. Idea: Virgins in space. Sara
laughs at the idea, especially in the execution, as both
Shawn and Sara are trying to hook up... but can never
quite do it. Saras thoughts... "Trying to hook up with
a married Mormon is stressful."
Team 2: Gabe and Heather. Idea: Make Richard cry... Hes
in the spot. Heather is just concerned with beating...
Team 3: Erica and Nikki. Idea: Sex sells. So do things
that go bleep and blink. Erica directs Nikki instead of
taking the model role.
Richard reviews the commercials. Sara and Shawn show
their enthusiasm for Heather and Gabes spot. Erica is
more or less bored.
Sara and Shawns video makes everyone laugh. Sara thinks
Richard will pick Nikki and Ericas cheeky spot over the
other two. Why? I dont know, just a fear of models...
But herein lies yet another twist. Richard tells the
group that they will select the winner instead of him.
Nicole thinks Heather and Gabe are "unoriginal." Heather
calls Erica and Nicole took the idea that they could get
a job at Disney in 10 seconds as an insult. Shawn thinks
that Nikki was stiff and that the spot lacked a coherent
message. Erica demeans Shawn and Saras commercial. She
feels that everyone will vote against her and Nikki
because no one likes them. They take a paper vote.
Richard asks if they put aside their prejudices when
voting. I doubt it.
Is this the end? Nope. Not yet. Theres another
challenge. The next challenge is to film more footage
while weightless in a zero-G plane. However, two will go
home before the flight takes off.
The result of the first challenge... Shawn and Sara were
voted as having the best ad and as such. Heather and
Gabe were second. As expected, Nikki and Erica are last.
Shawn and Sara, as winners, get a free pass to the next
Now the hard decision. Who will go home next?
Its Nicole and Erica. They never worked well together.
So as the two leave, Erica is held back for a second...
Richard asks her to take his place on the flight and
report back with the findings, due to the fact that he
has a prior engagement.
Erica and the foursome take off on the zero gravity
flight. They flip and float as if they were weightless
in space. However, awe turns into disaster as Heather
begins to feel sick halfway through the journey. Shawn
and Sara come up with an idea to play up the Virgins in
Space theme by acting as a couple who cant manage to
get amorous in weightlessness.
The plane hits turbulence, and Heather freaks out. Erica
tends to her. This meltdown affects the commercial with
Gabe. Heather says that she cannot complete the flight,
asking for the plane to be turned around.
What happens next? Find out next time.
