The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - LIVE & LOUD -

For most peo­ple, for­get­ting to wear your glasses to a teleprompted cast­ing call would be a dis­as­ter, but not for Gold Coast girl Brittany Capps.

Her au­di­tion for the lead pre­sen­ter of men’s life­style se­ries Blokesworld was blurry but bril­liant.

“I went to the cast­ing and they hired me on the spot.

“They said they re­ally liked how I didn’t just fol­low the script,” she ex­plains.

“The funny thing was there was a teleprompter there but I didn’t have my glasses on so I couldn’t read what was on it.

“I was ba­si­cally just mak­ing it up as I went along and that’s what got me the job.”

Brittany is well versed in pre­sent­ing, brand am­bas­sador­ship and mod­el­ling, but con­sid­er­ing last year she was strut­ting in de­signer gowns at Aus­tralian Bri­dal Fash­ion Week, Blokesworld is a slightly dif­fer­ent scene.

“Host­ing is re­ally cool be­cause you have your own per­son­al­ity on cam­era,” she says.

“So when I was pre­sent­ing I could be my­self, I didn’t have to stick to a script or pre­tend to be a cer­tain way.

“It was so cool work­ing with the boys and hav­ing a joke around. It’s a dif­fer­ent work­ing en­vi­ron­ment to what I’m used to, but ev­ery­one is so friendly and I love see­ing ev­ery­one’s ideas be­come a re­al­ity.”

She’s also no stranger to hard work, bang­ing out a whole sea­son’s worth of work in one day. But for Brittany it’s worth it to see what other op­por­tu­ni­ties come her way.

“We ba­si­cally filmed 20 episodes in one day, which was crazy,” she says.

“I’m so stoked to be a part of this but I’m also re­ally look­ing for­ward to do­ing more in the fu­ture.

“I’m so grate­ful for ev­ery op­por­tu­nity that comes my way, es­pe­cially in an in­dus­try that’s so tough to crack.”

Blokesworld, Tues­day 7.30pm on Fox­tel Au­rora.
