I'VE RUN INTO A SURPRISINGAMOUNT OF PEOPLE

I SEEM TO RUB THE WRONG WAY.- TAKE YOUR PIZZA

AND STICK IT UP YOUR ASS.

- YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE?

YOU REMIND ME OF THE WIZARDOF LONELINESS.

[not audible][pleasant music playing]

- I'M NOT SURE WHY THAT IS,BUT I KNOW THAT AS A TV HOST

HAVING A PERSONALITY THAT PEOPLEDON'T LIKE IS BAD FOR BUSINESS.

AND THAT'S WHYI NEEDED TO MAKE A CHANGE.

SO FOR THE FIRST WEEK OFSHOOTING MY SHOW THIS SEASON,

I HIRED A FOCUS GROUPTHAT REPRESENTS

A CROSS-SECTIONOF AMERICAN SOCIETY

TO WATCH MY EVERY MOVEFROM A NEARBY BOX TRUCK.

TELL ME A LITTLE BITABOUT YOUR BUSINESS.

- WE HAVE THE DOORS.WE HAVE MAHOGANY WOOD.

- USING A HIDDEN EAR PIECE,

THEY WERE ABLE TO GIVE MEREAL-TIME FEEDBACK ON THE FLY.

- WE HAVE OAK.

- EXPRESS YOURSELFWITH YOUR HANDS,

WITH YOUR SHOULDERS,WITH ANYTHING.

- SO YOU'VE GOT THE BEST PRICESIN TOWN.

THAT WOULD HELP ME BECOMEA MORE LIKABLE HOST.

WOW.THAT'S REALLY COOL TO HEAR.

- YEAH.THERE YOU GO.

- THEY TOLD ME HOW TO ENGAGEWITH MY AUDIENCE MORE.

- LIKE 500 MODELS OF DOORSYOU COULD CHOOSE FROM.

- NOW DO YOU MANUFACTUREALL THE DOORS IN THIS BUILDING?

- WE MANUFACTURE MOST OF THEMIN THIS BUILDING, YES.

- THERE YOU GO.GOOD JOB.

- AND THEY ALSO HAD SOME FASHIONTIPS TO MAKE ME MORE RELATABLE.

- I THINK A V-NECKWOULD GO WELL WITH YOU.

- A V-NECK?REALLY?

- A BLAZER.

A T-SHIRT WITH A BLAZERMIGHT WORK.

- YEAH. THAT'S SORT OFA POPULAR STYLE RIGHT NOW.

- YEAH.

- THE ONLY ISSUEWE ENCOUNTERED EARLY ON

WAS THAT IT WAS HARDFOR THE GROUP TO STAY FOCUSED

WHILE WE WERE MOBILE.

- WHOA!- OHH...

- BUT WE QUICKLYFOUND A SOLUTION TO THAT

BY BOLTING DOWN THE TABLESAND STRAPPING THEM IN

WHILE THE TRUCK WAS MOVING.

[wood creaking]

AS THE WEEK WENT ON,I WAS ABLE TO EVOLVE MY STYLE

TO BECOME MORE IN LINEWITH THEIR TASTES,

AND A MORE LIKABLE MEWAS STARTING TO TAKE SHAPE.

GOOD TO MEET YOU, MAN.- GOOD TO MEET YOU TOO.

- SO TELL ME ABOUTYOUR FOOT MASSAGE PARLOR.

- OH, THERE WE GO.

- BODY MOTIONS ARE GREAT.

- WE ALSO DO FACIALAND HEAD, TOO.

- NOW, EVERYONE LOVESA FOOT MASSAGE, RIGHT?

- OH, GREAT.HE LOOKED OUT AT THE CAMERA.

- GREAT LOOKING AT THE CAMERA.GOOD JOB.

- THE GROUP WAS ABSOLUTELYLOVING WHO I WAS NOW.

NOW, IS THAT A SOAPY WATEROR IS IT JUST

PLAIN WATER?- JUST THE WATER, JUST CLEAN,

PURE--JUST WATER, YES.- JUST WATER.

WOW.THAT'S SO INTERESTING.

- THERE YOU GO.- GOOD! GOOD.

- AND EVEN THOUGH I WAS STILLGETTING USED TO IT,

IT SEEMED LIKE I HAD BECOMEA BETTER VERSION OF ME.

BUT BEFORE FULLY COMMITTINGTO THIS,

I WANTED TO PUTMY NEW PERSONALITY

THROUGH THE ULTIMATE TEST.

AND WE'LL SEE THAT IN A BIT.
