Shaun T

One question I get asked a lot is "How does Shaun T act in real life?". The answer is, just like he acts in his videos. He is super sweet and extremely motivating. I have been a fan of Shaun for many, many years. I have exercised with him on his videos. I have followed him on social media. I was watching him on Facebook the night before we went to set for the first time and he was doing a video from a hotel room. I said to my husband, wouldn't it be cool if Shaun T was on this show. I mean, I think he is the best fitness instructor out there. I went to bed with that thought in my head, never thinking it would come true. The next day on set all of the contestants were hanging out and talking. Someone asked who we would want to be the host. La'tasha and I both said Shaun T. I was telling everyone what a huge fan I was and how I just loved him. When we got onto set and saw him come through those doors, I almost died. I am seriously shocked I didn't pass out, throw up, or cry. Seeing him was so surreal. I had been watching him on T.V. for years and there he was, right in front of me. He said hi to me and I almost fainted. I had a real fan girl moment. When we weren't filming, and sometimes when we were, he would cut up with us. He is hilarious! During the challenges, he was always there motivating us. Telling us to "Dig Deeper". He truly wanted us to succeed. It wasn't an act for television. He is honestly genuine and sincere. Shaun took the time to get to know us. He asked questions about our lives and our families. He ate breakfast with us and lunch with us most of the time. He is a normal, down to earth guy. He gave us tips and encouragement the whole time. He would come into our holding area just to say Good Morning or ask how our week was going. He took the time to take pictures and sign my shirt. Never once did he act too busy to speak with us. If we were down, he was there to cheer us up. One day I caught him in a room dancing. He didn't stop when I walked in. He just kept dancing and told me one day we could dance together. You can tell he loves what he does and is so grateful that he is in a position that allows him to help people. He has a wonderful support system. Scott was there everyday. He is also very down to earth, even though he is absolutely gorgeous. Scott was always super friendly to us. He gives great hugs and gave them out frequently. He and Shaun make a great pair. I wish they lived here, because I want to hang out with them all the time. I am so honored that I had the opportunity to spend time with them. I mean, I worked out with freaking Shaun T. He told me personally to "Use my core". I will never forget the experience I shared with him. It was a total dream come true. Now, go do some Insanity or Cize!!
