Jason Mesnick was runner up on season 4 of The Bachelorette so they gave him a Bachelor title, ran his own race for the 13th season. At the finale (so still on the show unlike Blake) he announced that he had changed his mind and switched the engagement ring from his original suitor (Melissa) to the runner up (Molly). Cue controversy!
See, don’t say you don’t learn anything over here at Calm to Conniption!
Anywho, Jason was brought to Australia by a US Inbound Tour Operator to film a few webisodes on travelling in Australia. I at the time was working for a tourism organisation up in the beautiful Whitsundays and was given the task of helping Jason out with his filming on a few days.
To clear up any misconceptions in my filming abilities. I have none. It was a case of the ol’ Fran Drescher. I had style. I had flair. Ok, no, I was just there! That’s how I became the camera operator.
Jason was a top guy and totally committed to his work. Hey who wouldn’t be, roaming around Australia being shown the best of the best, tough gig!
I followed him around while he swam in plunge pools, sailed on hobby cats, marvelled at nature and got people to push him off paddle boards.
I think my best work was the silhouette piece looking out to the ocean. How good are tripods!
You can see all my amazing camera work here but check out below for the hard and fast version of Jason’s all over adventure.
If you are quick, and don’t value your sight, you can actually see me drinking champagne on Whitehaven Beach. Black, cheap ass, bikini! WTF was I thinking getting around in that?! Beer googles work in the mirror too it seems.
Have you had any dealings with reality TV celebrities?
Featured in a Housewives of Melbourne yourself perhaps? 😉
