calling all class of '94 kangaroos!

SHUT UP ... i got an email from my good friend (Liisa) today informing me that i'm 1 step away from famous! ok, so you've played the game "six degrees of kevin bacon" ... well it doesn't even take 2 steps for me to be famous!! {wink-wink} how is this possible you ask? a guy that i went to highschool with and KNOW ... is currently on a reality television show ... and not just ANY show ... The Bachelorette!!
[disclaimer: i haven't watched the show since the 'officer and a gentleman' so it's been a while but i've been doing "research" almost all day ... since i was informed of my new status!]

Jason and i went to school together! seriously! i couldn't believe it either - i rummaged around for my yearbook and sure enough ... there he is ... right in my yearbook. he is lookin' great on the show and seems to be making a good impression. i found out from the show that he's a daddy ... and hasn't yet revealed that to DeAnna ... but it's only been the premier episode ... so i'll be watching!

all you kangs out there - check him out! i'm sure he'll love the hometown support!

I recently found out that one of my friends from college is on Next Food Network Star! It's fun to watch people we know on tv!

Like I said yesterday, what are the chances of BOTH of us having gone to high school with someone that's been on The Bachelorette? Too weird.

He's really cute, was he that cute in high school?

Oh, and - Can I have your autograph?

That is so funny! I thought wow he is HOT and from Kirkland, so if Deanna kicks him off I want to meet him ;-) I didn't even recognize him, but he doesn't look very different. Just more mature, and way cute! - Amber Swanigan (copied from a Facebook message she sent me!)

Em, this is too funny! I watch the show, and he is my fav. one on there so far, and I am already rooting for him to win! Although DeAnna isn't my favorite.

Hey Jen also knew someone on the Bachelor. Wait a second, maybe it was on the Average Joe. whatever.

You are totally FAMOUS! I have never known someone on a reality tv show, but Jeff Probst from Survivor went to my High School. I love your post below this one. A good reminder for all of us!
