Today was the press release, so I’m finally allowed to make it public.

A big congratulations to my girl for being selected out of over thirty people to be the new Ketnet-wrapper ! Vanilla Ice need not worry for a sudden dip in sales – the wrapping Kristien will be doing consists of livening up the screen inbetween shows. For those of you who are geographically challenged, Ketnet is the TV channel for kids run by the Flemish national television here in Belgium.

It was her first screentest ever, and she was chosen out of a bunch of people who all had more experience. Her first time on television is May 1st, Labour day – no bad jokes please. Anyone back home care to record it for me ?

I’m sure she will now finally come to appreciate the hours and hours of practice I have given her – for free,  I might add – dealing with kids.

It’s going to be fun having all my friend’s kids become old enough to watch and see how they react to someone they know from TV. Of course I’m very excited about this opportunity for her, but I am left with one small worry. Young children have young dads. I remember how some of my friends used to comment on the hotness of wrappers, so I’ll have to watch out. I am relying on my posse to keep a watchful eye.


  1. Congratulations K! All the best.

  2. Well, if you want to know if young dads will “comment on the hotness of wrappers”, you should have linked to something like this: http://www2.vrtnieuws.net/cm/vrtnieuws.net/cultuurmedia/media/070417Wrapper_KristienMaes
