Or Freligh interviews this week’s eliminated LEGO Masters competitors …
Hosted by actor and producer Will Arnett, 2nd season LEGO Masters appears every Tuesday (8 a.m. to 9 p.m. ET / PT) on FOX, bringing imagination, design and creativity to life as teams of LEGO enthusiasts meet each other, with unlimited possibilities and unlimited LEGO bricks. Once again, teams of two are competing against each other in more ambitious brick-building challenges – including the earthquake tower challenge, demolition derby, LEGO fashion show and more – to be crowned with the country’s most talented amateur LEGO builders. Every week, Flickering Myth’s Tai Freligh talks to eliminated competitors. This week, Tai will talk to Jack and Dawn, a team of siblings and sisters who are building in honor of their niece Kelsey, their showtime, lessons learned and more on the construction that ended their showtime.
Talk about the audition for the show and how did it feel to get selected?
Dawn: There were many stages in the test process, and I honestly didn’t think we would be chosen to move on to the next stage every time. We knew there were so many talented builders, and we were shot in the dark. I didn’t even tell my husband that I had applied until things really started to come true … no need to plan something that probably wouldn’t happen. When we flew to Atlanta, it was still hard to believe, and when one of the producers told us we had gotten it LEGO Masters season 2, he had to repeat it because it hadn’t sunk yet.
Jack: There were many hoops to jump through in the show’s audition, but it was also fun. I waited for the other shoe to fall and be dropped, but it never happened. It really didn’t sink into getting into the show until we were interviewed and one of the producers told us a second time. LOL.
What was your experience at the show?
Dawn: The experience of being LEGO Masters is so hard to describe. It’s one of the most amazing experiences, and one of the most stressful experiences you’ll ever imagine. Not only have we made lifelong friends with other actors, but they are now truly family members. They’re definitely amazing builders – all of them – but more importantly, they’re some kind-hearted people you could ever hope to meet.
Jack: The only way I could describe being in a performance was surreal. It was awesome.
Which building are you most proud of?
Dawn: I am very proud of both of our buildings, but the size and majesty of the butterfly and what and who it represents makes me smile for many years to come.
Jack: I’m proud of our parade floating because it represented the great niece Kelsey.
Tell us what you were trying to do with the structure that let you eliminate?
Dawn: We both grew up and currently live in a small town in the United States. Our building showed some details of the old buildings that line the streets of these cities, and we wanted to make it look as realistic as possible. The city had basically wandered the streets at night and the Opal Jewel Thief had a constant desire to destroy the rats and their jewelry store.
Jack: We tried an example of a small town street view in our most recent building.
What do you learn you will take with the judges from your show?
Dawn: There are three great lessons I have learned from the time we spend LEGO Masters… You don’t know what you can do before you try, never give up and you always have a plan B (or C… or D).
Jack: The lessons I took out must always have a backup plan and never give up.
