I was on the child's reality TV Show "Kid Nation" when I was 14. Ask me anything about it.
My name is Michael. I've PM'd mods for verification.
I posted this yesterday at /r/cringe, thinking I'd get some laughs/nostalgia regarding an awkward phase of my life. It ended up essentially becoming an IAmA, and I was encouraged to post a real thread here by a mod. So, here's the gist of it:
6 years ago I was on a reality television show. That should be cringe worthy enough... but I was also 14. The show was "Kid Nation" So, I had the dubious honor of having an awkward phase captured for all posterity and broadcast on CBS. So now, if you google my name, you are greeted with a plethora of videos like this, and this, and (dear god) this.
These videos are cringe worthy in their own right. Now, imagine being the subject, and having your 5'3'', 80 pound, 14 year old frame captured on 13 hours of digitally preserved video.
I'm leaving in about 15 minutes for a couple hours, but when I get back home I'll answer as many questions as I can. I'll sporadically keeping checking in and answering stuff. Ask me about the production process of reality TV/what "really" happened/anything!
EDIT 3:26 PM EST: I'm back, and I'm ready to start firing out some answers
EDIT 4:55 PM EST: Answering these questions has been a blast, it's great to reminisce. I have to head to work now, but I'll be back later tonight and I will continue to fire off some responses.
