TTMAR: ABC-TV REALITY SHOW TAPS FORMER MASSILLON RESIDENT!

TTMAR EPISODE 6 CONTESTANT, KATE WALTZ, GETS INTERVIEWED . . .

PER INDEONLINE.COM

Last summer, Kate Waltz received an unexpected call from ABC Television Network executives about filming a pilot for a reality show. Her boyfriend, Anthony Fanelli, had neglected to tell her that two months previously, he had responded to a call for competitive Chicago couples and applied to be on a reality show.

“I laughed it off; I didn’t think anything would happen,” said the former Massillon resident and 2002 Central Catholic High School graduate.

More than a year later, they will appear at 9 p.m. Tuesday on ABC’s season finale of “Take the Money and Run.”

Waltz does sales for a logistics company and has lived in Chicago for the past three years. Fanelli, who originally is from Akron, does improvisational comedy and had heard about casting for the TV pilot. So after they were contacted by executives in July 2010, they were flown to Los Angeles to be interviewed and tested to make sure they could handle the type of competitive reality show.

After all, it wasn’t the type of show where the now 27-year-olds would have to eat creepy crawlies or swim in a piranha-infested tank. But they were going to be incarcerated separately in an actual jail cell and interrogated by professionals for up to 48 hours.

Waltz said the couple enjoys the outdoors and thrill-seeking activities like skydiving so they were up for a unique challenge even though they didn’t know what they were getting themselves into.
