Well I just got back from flming the show, was pretty much the greatest time of my life right after spotting the flying spaghetti monster through my car window.
Anyway, as far as the pastafarian side of things goes, heres what happened. From what I understand I was put on the show mainly because of my beliefs and ability to express them. Right up until the night before filming the qualifier round I was elad to believe I would be shouting "avast" and "WWFSMD?", especialy since they had specificaly asked right before I flew out there to print out the picture of my sighting of the FSM for the show.
HOWEVER at the last moment they had one final meeting on the matter and finnaly came to the conclusion that it was not in their best interests to allow me to portray this side of my life. From what I understand their reason for this was because they had come to see that pastafarianism was too much like a real religion. Unfortunate as this all was, I must say it is good at least to see endemol coming to treating us, and understanding that we are just as important as, all the other less accurate religions out there.
