How Far Would You Go For $$$?

You know when you're in the shower, enjoying the hot water and start getting deep into thought? Yeah that's me. I like to brainstorm when I'm in the shower. The other night I was thinking about more personal statement ideas and for some reason I drifted on to thinking about how far people would go for money. We all know that people do crazy things such as going on reality shows (or is it so crazy anymore?), competing with people, eating insects, taking risks for entertainment. But how did this all start? I miss the good ol' days of Price is Right, Wheel of Fortune, and Jeopardy. But those are boring now! Now we have weird things like cook-offs, design disasters, modeling, etc. Everything has been turned into a cash competition.

Then I started thinking about movies.

Movies; actors and actresses are glamorized for sometimes doing what they love but also for sometimes putting themselves out for money. Sure you get publicity, ability to work with certain directors and other great actors, but what about values? I'm sure you would think twice about shaving your head (ladies only, don't think this is bad for guys), or getting naked, gaining an extreme amount of weight....all for a role in a movie. But when it comes down to it, the crazier the approach to the part you play, the larger the money offered becomes. If you are lucky enough to be offered this amount of money, would you take it?

I always thought to myself, I would never shave my head. I love my hair too much! I would never want to put on weight purposely. But if I was offered a million bucks? I could help my family, boyfriend, my future kids, etc. Maybe I am being too selfish? I think I would do it. I don't think I would do anything at the account of anyone else though such as if I had to hurt someone. 

How far would you go for money?

Tough call. I did want to drop in and say that I *always* get my best ideas in the shower too :)

omg I came up with many personal statement ideas in the shower! I usually think of it as a dialogue or a narrative, where I pretend that my PS is the narrative in a movie of my life thus far, and narrate it in my head, gauging how it would come off to potential ls admission committees... To be honest I don't even think the admission committee read it in the end, oh well, i guess getting in is all that mattered.

for a million bucks, I would save my head and gain weight subject to irreversible physical damages. I wouldn't go naked on film though.

I would definitely gain weight and then spend a portion of the money on a personal gym!

I think about a lot in the shower as well....

Anyways, for me it depends, in a way I would go pretty far but they are some things I can't do, like eat live bugs and such. Things like semi-nude photo shoots I would consider but it honestly would depend on the price and what is being asked. Just like you I also wouldn't do anything to hurt anyone.

Great post. I'm not sure how far I would go, but I do think about this! I think I would do a lot for a million bucks, of course I wouldn't do things where people would get hurt.
