Jameela: Hello, welcome back to T4 in Central Park in New York, and coming up it's 'Ugly Betty'.
Co-host: Right now though, Jam Jam, it’s your big moment, your time to shine. Do you make it onto the catwalk? Let’s see.
Jameela: Previously ...
Choreographer: Jameela, do some practice please.
Jameela: Apparently, it turned out my walk isn’t good enough.
I’d given it my all … and apparently, it was enough! I was in! I don’t even know what to do with myself. I, I should probably, I should probably go get ready.
My childhood dream was about to come true. And with the professional team around me, I started to feel a little bit like a model. The nerves were starting to kick in. I can’t believe I’m actually here. I can’t believe I’m actually …
My, my dream since I was about this big, not that I was ever really that big, is about to come true. Loads of people out there. Really, uh, it’s a bit more stressful than I anticipated. I didn’t think it would be this scary, but um, I’m going to fall off the catwalk. That’s what’s going to happen. I’m going to fall off the catwalk, and everyone’s going to see and everyone’s going to laugh. Wish me luck!
I’m here! I’m doing it! I’m walking on a catwalk in front of absolutely … no one. Not one person. Fine, so it was only a rehearsal, but you know what? That was good enough for me.
Well, I guess my time as a catwalk superstar in New York is over. Doesn’t matter I didn’t make it onto the main stage in front of all the celebs. You know, but, I think they were threatened by my obvious talent, by my massive gift. You know, I think they thought I was going to show up all of the other models. I wouldn’t want that either if I was a designer. You know what? Your loss, New York!
Co-host: So, Jam Jam fulfilled her dreams of getting onto the catwalk here in New York – sort of. She’s not the only one who’s been fulfilling her dreams though. I’ve, I’ve been pretty busy fulfilling. What did I say to you on the plane on the way here? What did I want more than anything?
Jameela: You said you wanted to get your hands on four tiny, little dogs.
Co-host: Bang! Come on guys, let’s go! Yes, that’s right! Come on! Jog with me. Yes!
Jameela: Here’s 'Ugly Betty'.
Co-host: Come on. Yes.
