Deborah Wolff has a degree in cinema and television from the University of Southern California. She has written a terrific memoir about her life in television.

The Mole TV show

In one crazy year, she worked on “The Amazing Race”, “The Mole”, AND “Fear Factor!” Her stories about life on the road making these shows is fascinating – like getting the “Amazing Race” contestants out of one country and into another!

“The visa office was only open on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. So the earliest we could get them would be Wednesday. NO WAY! Not acceptable. I was screaming that in my head while trying to have a pleasantly firm conversation with the visa person.”

The book is full of great stories about the difficulties of mounting a reality show when the entire WORLD is your set!

There are so many great stories in the book, and I asked Deborah about the best part of writing it…

“If I had to pick one thing I learned”, she told me, “even though my experiences are unique to me, I am not alone. There are so many other crazier, more dangerous stories than even I went through from other crew across many shows!”

And that is what makes reality TV so fascinating – the book gives you the intense detail about what it takes to make a TV show…it’s a great ride!

  1. With all due respect, I hold the writers’ strike criminally liable. But I’m glad you have food on your table.
