How Ya Goin’
Hey, Jason Here
Season 3: (reality TV show and competition show participants) focused on six of the nation’s most intriguing people who shared their experiences in the spotlight.
Having been on such a show myself in The X Factor back in 2012, I know exactly how much fun, blood, sweat and tears is involved when you sign up! I wanted to talk to interviewees about the best times on the show as well as understanding how they dealt with such issues such as stress and the aftermath of being in the spotlight.

Nasser Sultan (Married at First Sight), Sally Bloomfield (The Real Housewives of Melbourne), Sarah Todd (MasterChef), Brendon Crawley and Jackson Dening (The Amazing Race Australia), Gerald Youles (Australian Survivor), Chantal Bakac (Gogglebox)
