What does it take to be on a reality series? Apparently, it could boil down to simply winning an online voting competition. A 23-year-old Syracuse native named Brian Magee did just that, and now he's on his way to become a contender in the new VH1 show, Daisy of Love.
The reality dating program centers on Daisy de la Hoya, runner-up on Rock of Love 2
with Bret Michaels
Daisy may not be aware of Brian yet, and Magee is uncertain about what lies ahead of him. He has no information regarding his cast members or his living arrangements, but he knows quite a few things about the girl he's about to compete for.
Working as a service technician for a Syracuse cable company, Brian Magee had to take a break and leave his life behind for a chance on Daisy of Love
. “I'm doing this to have fun,” he admitted. “It's a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. I'm just going to do my thing and be me.”
Magee found out about the contest through a friend, and he immediately underwent the entire process. There were months of voting, posting videos and photos, and telling people about himself online. Now, things have just paid off. He won the contest last December, and is on his way to meet former Rock of Love
contestant Daisy de la Hoya. However, he's not even sure what he's going to do when he meets her.
“I don't know. I don't know her and she doesn't know me. She could be the coolest person I've ever met or I might not be able to stand anything she says.” Being straight edge and vegan would probably set him apart from the others, but Brian doesn't mind. One of the things he has in common with Daisy is his love for music, and it's possibly something that could win her over.
“I'm just a goofy dude who likes hanging out with friends and making people laugh and being funny,” Magee says of himself. “I've always been outrageous, out of control, loud and obnoxious. All the things that you expect from someone on reality TV.”
