I'm not sure about this particular one, but for the Drowned Alive (the first one), he received $70,000 for every hour he spent in the water.
That is absolutely freaking insane.
WHERE DO I BECOME AN ENDURANCE ARTIST LOL?
Blaine's awesome, I hope this special is on tv. Sure he isn't like a Burton, McBride, Cardini, or any other legend in magic, but he is decently skilled and I like his presentation. I really like Blaine though because he made magic on tv "real" again. People used to watch magic on tv and think every single illusion was a camera trick, as I did, but then Blaine came along and you knew it was not camera trickery. Now Angel sadly is bringing people back to thinking its all just camera trickery because with him it is.
I just looked at the link, so this means Blaine is doing another special Sept. 24th on ABC right?!
I hope so really really really bad! I want some other magician on television other than Angel sooooooooooo badly!
This must be why Angel was mocking him on Mindfreak.... I wonder hmm.
