What follows is the final excerpt from Scott King’s interview with CNN reporter, Cub Mountain.
Cub: Scott, has this dance competition changed your life?
Scott: It has in a very strange way. I don’t talk the same anymore. I am using more dance terminology than I did before. The other day, I told one of our lenders to watch out for an “amague” signature. I also informed someone that a movie I watched recently had a great “enrosque” at the end. This competition has opened up a whole new vocabulary for me. Who knew dancing terminology was so cool?!
Cub: People have been asking, what’s next for Scott King?
Scott: Well Cub, you know, you have to take these gigs one at a time. You can’t look ahead to the next one. I’ve got a couple of irons in the fire. American Idol has called, but I might be too “old school” for them. Not many of the judges remember Frank and Dean like I do. I also am looking into producing and directing. I want to explore my creativity behind the scenes.
Cub: Are there any projects that you are producing right now?
Scott: We’ve got a couple of ideas in negotiations, but there is one that I really like. It’s a reality show called, “The Next Hef”. We take a bunch of older gentlemen and have them compete to be Hugh Heffner’s replacement when he retires. It’s sort of like the Bachelor, but for a more mature, male audience.
Cub: Scott, are there any of your competitors that you are worried about?
Scott: Look Cub, all the competitors are great people and each has their own strengths. Look at Graphos. He’s a consummate entertainer. Nobody delivers the weather like that guy! Average Joe? Let’s just say that he’s well Above Average! Tracy? She’s like her jewelry; class and style all the way! And Paul Jadin? He runs this town for crying out loud! That’s just a small sample. Each one is outstanding. But, having said that, I like my chances. I’ve got a great teacher and we’re ready to shake it!
