News From RDF : LUSENET : Junkyard Wars : One Thread

Got the message from Andy Bell

I have just posted the most up-to-date news on the front page of the junkyard wars website. Basically everyone who applied will hear in the 4-6 weeks. Sorry about the delay.

Does this mean 4-6 more weeks?

I'm afraid it does

Thanks Andy...ken

Although I am going nuts waiting, I really do appreciate that RDF has given us an update on the status of their search. I find that the wait is harder when you have no idea when to expect news. This should make the next 3.5 weeks a bit less unpleasant.

I understand that it takes awhile for you all to go through the ton of apps gotten in, but goodness, my husband is already on pins and needles and restless, so are his partners, another 4-6 weeks, GOD HELP US!!!!!(wife of Joey Falgout of the Broadcast Junkies)

My god, 1000 applications! I guess that 10:1 ratio of posters vs. applicants that someone mentioned was fairly accurate.

On the other hand, just what is the ratio between applicants and viewers? I would assume that there are a heckofa lot more viewers than there are teams who feel capable of going on the show, and willing to go through the application process.

I'd guess that there are plenty enough viewers to keep the show going for a while. Lets just hope that it doesn't get too Americanized with a carefully crafted junkyard and everything orchestrated to oblivion.

I'm still looking forward to the new season!

I don't know about pins and needles!?!? We're just happy to hear something. Keep watching, and I'll now shut off my cell phone til May!

Just to make the time past faster we're inviting everyone over for a couple of cold ones. Complements of The Alcolympians. As well, it'll take your mind away from the fact that they have to eliminate roughly 1000 applicants down to 8 teams. Good luck to all!

Thank you RDF for posting a time table...

Win, Lose or Draw it helps to have closure on an issue.
