    Hi all, I would like to let you all know that I was a contestant in Forged in Fire and that my episode airs on Oct. 10 if you'd like to check it out.

    There have been a lot of things said about the show on social media. All I can tell you is that it was one of the most fun, and grueling things I have ever done. If you are thinking about doing it, I think you should.

    Thanks everybody. It was very hot in there but they take very good care of you. As soon as your water bottle empties, someone runs out and fills it. If you get a cut, the medic runs out and patches you up. It was fun and exciting.
