Watch Mia on The 7pm Project

Love the show and what they’re doing with it. But this was not my finest media moment. I have no idea why it looks like I have a milk moustache. And it can be tricky doing those crosses. Basically, I’m sitting on a chair in a tiny room with a green screen behind me and an earpiece in my ear where I can hear the panel asking me questions but can’t hear anything else.

I have to look straight into a camera and just wing it.

When you’re doing TV in person, you can read someone’s wind-up body language when time is up. Also, the floor manager makes the wind-up symbol (looks like drawing a circle in the air). But with an earpiece, you’re just gone…..awkward!
