What days of the week is JW filmed?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Junkyard Wars : One Thread

Although the 2001 dates have not been decided yet, can previous participants fill me in on what days of the week JW has been filmed (weekends, weekdays)? One of my potential teammates keeps asking, and although we may not have a snowball's chance of ever getting on the show, it might be easier to get him committed if I knew. So, previous competitors, can you help?

Unfortunately, it has varied. In the case of the brit series, it was filmed weekdays. On the US series, they did it on weekends.

Next year it is likely to get filmed on the US west coast. So you won't have as much jet lag to plan around. When we were building in the UK, we went over on saturday or sunday for a wed. morning taping. No way do you want to be touching power tools while jet lagged.

Yea, I used up all my vacation. It was worth every momemnt.

We flew over on Friday, had our uniforms fitted( no small task ) on saturday, filmed build day on Sunday, the safety day was monday, and we competed on Tuesday. They film in the Junkyard on Sunday because the scrap yard next door isn't working.
