In coaster shows and videos they always film enthusiasts. Has anybody ever been in one? Or like a commercial or anything.

DejaVu SFMM 2001

I was in last summer's commercial of Goliath. I was in the train and I rode Goliath 25 times over and over. My school's baseball team was invited to be the "guests" on Goliath so I got to go. I got sick after about the 15th lap. That helix can take a lot out of you.

Are we already forgetting ShiveringTim?
And no, I haven't but I wish I was. All you do is ride coasters. That would be great!

This year I was on Raging Bull for a top ten thing for the travel channel. I was on the red train. You will see me I have a white shirt and I am thin but not anerexic thin.

I was somewhere in the middle of the Millennium Force train for some of the Discovery shows last year. Longest and most boring two hours of my life. The seats are not comfortable for long-term sitting!
I was also on Fox News (national) on media day, as well as various affiliate stations in WV and Ohio.

When the Power Tower opened, WOIO, channel 43 here in cleveland was interviewing people who had just ridden the ride. They interviewed me and a couple of my friends, we were all out of breath but it made it on TV, we looked like fools.

I haven't been on a show myself, but I saw this one guy that has been on a show. He was waiting in line for Speed:The Ride.

I will be on Bulding of A Coaster, whenever it is aired. Got about 15 rides on LR that day, with the last five on wet track. Had a great time, trains were kinda empty though.

No, never been on a show.
But if you do get on one, please keep a serious face, do your homework, describe the ride elements correctly, stay calm, and then tell the camera you can't wait for something taller in the future.
Producers of coaster shows tell people to whoop it up and get all excited, or scared. Unfortunately, this kind of behavior comes across as plain dumb when you go back and look at it on a video.
I already wrote my letter to Discovery, and they thanked me for writing.
If you do get on the show, ignore what the producers say, they will coach you incorrectly.
