Why am I so chicken?

Monday, January 24, 2011

So this weekend I hit the local gym with my cousin R and I happened to spot a local HGTV star. Now, I don't live in a chic Toronto neighbourhood or anything, so much to my surprise, when I spotted Income Property's host Scott McGillivray hitting the weights at my gym, I was a little more than surprised. My cousin kept encouraging to go up to speak to the guy as he was working out (which I might add...he looks even better in person) and introduce myself and ask about his show. But all of sudden I became school-girl shy. What is that? I mean it didn't help that I just finished working out and looked at my absolute worst, but now I regret it. I should have just went up to him, what did I have to lose?  I hate it when my shy self just reappears out of no where. Oh well, here's keeping my fingers crossed for next weekend....and I'll be sure to slap on some lipstick before I hit the treadmill....you never know.
Scott McGillivary host of HGTV's Income Property. How come none of my contractor's look like this?
Some of Scott's work on Income Property. Great show as it focuses on overhauling spaces to help folks generate additional income and better balance their lives. Image via here. 
Not bad. Image via here.

Not bad for a rental space, eh? You can check out more of the Income Property before & after's here.

That's so cool! I think most people are like you - we also don't want to impose. Great incentive to get to the gym!

I wouldn't have said anything either- that's just too much pressure. Cool that you saw him though- I really enjoy his show. And I agree with Vanessa, now that you know he frequents your gym, it's total motivation to go back!

I can see not wanting to approach someone at the gym - this coming weekend for sure though!

PS love the new paisley signature! ;)

I would of done the same! Yes, how come contractors never look like him? I think I would have more "projects" to do!

I was just watching a great episode of Income Property this morning! And don't beat yourself up, I would be too chicken too. Maybe you'll see him again and you can muster up the courage to go say hi. He would probably be interested in your lovely blog :)

Ack! He's so hot! I would have died... there's no way I would have been able to talk to him either!
