The Great American Dream Vote on ABC

I saw an ad this evening for a show called The Great American Dream Vote on ABC. It looked like a pretty interesting show. Basically you make a wish for something you’ve been dreaming about and then the audience and America votes for which dream should be fulfilled.

I think this is a great idea. In fact, I think that The Great American Dream vote should contact the people at Robin Hood Fund and talk to them about using their content and stories. I think the Robin Hood Fund website that grants wishes and has a whole slew of stories would be a perfect match for the show. Plus, Robin Hood Fund already has a great engine built for The Great American Dream vote to handle voting, comments, ratings, etc etc etc. It wouldn’t make sense for the show to create its own website when they could use something already built. Are you listening?

Anyway, here’s the full description from the webite:

Special Preview to Air on Tuesday, March 27

The Great American Dream Vote, hosted by pop icon Donny Osmond, a new series that grants the wildest dream of one lucky contestant, will premiere on WEDNESDAY, MARCH 28 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET), with a special preview airing on TUESDAY, MARCH 27 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television network.

Each episode of The Great American Dream Vote will introduce a group of contestants from across America, all of whom will reveal a lifelong dream to the studio audience and explain why they think it deserves to be fulfilled. Anything is possible. You want to make magic and miracles materialize in your life? Just tap into your fantasies – from having your own amusement park, to totally transforming your appearance, to surprising your spouse with their dream of a lifetime – and then convince American to vote for you.

As the contestants square off, the studio audience will cast votes, eliminating entrants over several rounds. By the end of each show, only two finalists will remain. Then viewers at home will have the opportunity to vote on which of the finalists most deserves to have his or her dream realized, and the results will be disclosed at the opening of the following week’s episode.

The show is hosted by pop icon Donny Osmond, whose multi-faceted 43-year career has evolved from pre-teen recording idol with The Osmonds into such varied roles as talk show, variety show and game show host, the toast of Broadway in Beauty and the Beast, bestselling author, and solo recording star with 33 gold and platinum records to his credit.

Mike Fleiss is executive producer of The Great American Dream Vote, with Lisa Levenson. Fleiss is the founder of Next Entertainment, and both he and Levenson are also executive producers on the highly successful Bachelor series on ABC. David Bohnert is co-executive producer. The Great American Dream Vote is a production of Next Entertainment in association with Warner Horizon Television.

Hmm…I actually have some decent connections with Donny Osmond. Maybe I should try to tap those connections to get to the producers of the show. Could be interesting.

    I hope Im leaving this in the right place.
    My great american dream would be to open an awsome youth center for kids 16-21 boys and girls alike. I live in a small town in NJ(though Im sure its all over) and there is NO WHERE for these kids to go that is possitive and productive to hang out without spending a fortune and getting into trouble. My son is 18 yrs old and I have his friends always hanging at our house trying to stay out of trouble. It would be awsome to have a great place for these kids to go and hang out and be safe and have fun in a controlled positive atmospher. Some pool Tables,basketball courts,video and pinball machines and maybe a juke box with weekend bands and activities. These are some great great kids and everyone just turns thier backs and all they can do is criticize and chase them off the streets and any public place! Please help me give these kids a great place to go and have some positive fun with adult supervision. This would be my joy!Thank you so much…..sincerely,Mary Fiore

    I’ve just seen the show and I have to say I’ve never seen anything more ridiculous. Not only are some of the dreams so self centered and shallow that it makes me sick to think this is how we represent ourselves to the world but the general set up of the show is as corny as it gets. Lets dim the lights so you can tell America your dream, then lets take two perfectly equal desires of people (reasonable or not) and pit them against one another to see whose dream is more worthy. And if that isn’t enough lets have 2 random models come out to deliver an envelope for 5 seconds of hot girl airtime. This show makes me want to rip my eyes out and throw them at Donnie Osmond. There are a lot of people with a lot of causes out there and this show is not the way to feature them. I urge everyone to boycot this show

    My american dream is to raise money for the american lung association. I am riding in a bike tour and am looking for pledges this spring. My grandfather is dying of lung cancer and my mother has chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. I want to help make a little piece of our world a happy healthy planet to live on by helping people with ailments like asthma and other breathing disorders. The American lung Association of NH needs to raise funds desperately in order to keep thier programming for those in need alive. Schools in our areas need more educational tools on the dangers of smoking and how to keep our kids smoke free. Please help me raise the funds we need.
    The Seacoast bike tour is this May I would personally love to raise atleast $1500.00 dollars for this wonderful cause. To pledge my ride contact and click on seacoast bike tour info. My name is Nathan Barnes.
    Lets make breathing free our new dream for America!!!!

    Some self-absorbed guy who wants hair plugs beats out a woman who wants to start a rescue center for elderly bassett hounds??? Ditto to everything Klyn said above. I couldn’t turn the channel fast enough.

  7. ABruce says:

    I honestly believe that neither Klyn nor Barb have the right to judge another person’s desire. How can they possibly know what is in the heart of another person? Just because you have a different idea about things or maybe even different priorities, it doesn’t ever make you high and mighty enough to judge another human being. I agree, you should turn the channel. Perhaps you should stick to PBS or maybe just take up reading…
