It’s no secret that I’ll watch just about anything on the Bravo network and rarely have regrets. I love skill-based reality competitions.
Last week I was watching Shear Genius and thought I was dreaming when I heard Michael Grecco’s name. OMG! A chance to see him shoot on one of my favorite shows?! Sweet!
My initial reaction is that he seemed a little harsh with the stylists and and a bit cold to the models, but I’m sure there are lots of footage showing just the opposite, as Michael himself mentioned on Flickr:
I was actually asked to be meaner than I was when we started out shooting. The show was edited to be as intense as possible and make good TV. They actually edited a 45 minute shoot with each hairdresser to be as intense as possible. There were also lots of laughs and jokes on the set, but that did not make for a good show.
The reality was that none of them did really good hair for the shoot. I could have really been tough but I tried to be as specific as I could with them for the audience’s sake.
If you missed it, Bravo makes it pretty easy to catch shows in rerun.
