Meet the Meat: The Glee Project 2, Part 5


Ali, 24
New York, NY
Ali has been a New York City actress and singer for more than three quarters of her life. She is a graduate of New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts with a Bachelor of Fine Arts, concentration in drama. Ali is paralyzed from the chest down, and has used a wheelchair since she was two-years-old. She strives to inspire other people with disabilities who want to pursue a career in performance to follow their dreams. Ali originally auditioned for “The Glee Project” at the New York City open casting call.

Yet another 'resume' entry.  The part concerning the disabilities is sweet, but I can't think of many good people who going around poo pooing someone's hopes and dreams because they're disabled.  I'm very curious to know where that came from, though--has she actually been through that, or was she always encouraged, and now sees how well that's benefited her?

Also, I know she's in a wheelchair, but the first thing that popped out at me was 'BOOBS'.  Like, WOW.

In other news:

Let's count how many times she says 'opportunity' and 'industry'.  Girl sounds a little bit like a Miss THC USA.  We get it, you're can't believe that you made it here.  Or that these cookies are SO GOOD.

I want to see these surf instructors though.  They sound like a good time.

Taryn, 22
Detroit, MI
Taryn has been performing for over 12 years, but prior to her audition for “The Glee Project,” she had never performed live for a casting panel. Also new to the traveling world, Taryn had never traveled on an airplane until her trip to Los Angeles for her audition. She is a trained aerialist who also enjoys hobbies such as cooking and painting.  Taryn was discovered for “The Glee Project” through an online video submission.

Oh...kay.  This doesn't even register as a blurb.  There's literally nothing there to distinguish her from a thousand other people.  A thousand other

This, on the other hand:

This would be the definition of a mess.  Was she drunk?  Why the hell couldn't she stay upright?  Why the hell did she make her entire interview about Michael Jackson?  And why is she talking about him in the present tense? HE'S DEAD, honey.  Like, for a while now.

Okay, I'll say a few nice things--I love that she used to force her cousin to be in the talent shows she'd make up, probably so she'd guarantee her win.  I'd also love to hear her sing like crazy--she sounds like she can rip it UP.

Alright, Gleek Project Babies, That's your new crew.  Let's hope they live up to last year!

Otherwise, consider them eviscerated.
