I'm SO late to the Snapchat party but I'm here! I asked you all to snap me some questions and here are your answers. WATCH to see what these guys said that got this reaction, who my favorite co-worker is, and MORE.
I'll do another one of these Q&A's soon!
Make sure to add me on Snapchat.
Despite what you think of the TV show "The Bachelorette," I really commend them for addressing the cyber attacks star Kaitlyn Bristowe has received. They didn't preach. They simply brought to light the messages she was getting. I can relate.
I understand I'm in a unique business and I know that not all of the comments I get will be positive. I'm ok with that. I don't lose sleep over the negative ones. However, after watching "The Bachelorette" last night, I felt that more people should know about the messages that are being carelessly thrown out there in the social media world.
These are just texts that came into the show. I have received countless of tweets and Facebook messages but you get the point. Many in this world have, what I call, keyboard courage. They slew words online and don't realize that there is a real person with real feelings on the other end.
While I can't respond to everything (even though I try very hard to), please know I read every message, every comment, every tweet, you name it. To those that have been kind, which is an overwhelming majority, thank you! Again, I'm not here to preach. I just want to bring to light what happens in the world of social media.
Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert's official statement:
"This is not the future we envisioned. And it is with heavy hearts that we move forward separately. We are real people, with real lives, with real families, friends and colleagues. Therefore, we kindly ask for privacy and compassion concerning this very personal matter."

I hope you all enjoyed your holiday weekend! I sure did but now it's back to work. Many of you joined my first DietBet Challenge and asked if I'd host another one. The answer is YES! Join here -- www.dietbet.com/ellentailor
Here's how it works. Bet $30 on yourself. Lose 4% of your body weight in 4 weeks and split the pot with everyone else that also met their goal.
After you join the Challenge (which you can do by clicking HERE) you'll have access to the message board and community. I've had a lot of success with social dieting and think you'd love it, too!
After a year of building up courage and losing 30 pounds, I decided I was going to audition for The Bachelor. I had so much fun going with my friends Kayla & Ashlynn. Here's a peek at what our day looked like.
Thanks SO much to Tint for coming in and doing our hair and make-up. Pac Island Grill even brought us lunch as we were getting ready. We felt great. Thank YOU!
What happens next? We're not sure. Taping starts in September so I'm assuming we'll hear something before then. Regardless, it was such a cool experience and I'm glad I did it!
Yesterday was the end of my 30-day Diet Bet Challenge. The goal was to lose 4% of my body weight and I'm happy to say I did it!!! Small steps towards big change. (If you want to see more before & after pictures, click here.) The timing worked out perfectly because today I'm auditioning for The Bachelor!
Now am I at my final goal weight? No. I am 30 pounds lighter than I was this time last year. My confidence is slowly but surely creeping back and I'm ready to audition for a reality show. Do I have high hopes of getting a call back? Nah. Would I like a call back? Umm...yeah!
Want to audition with me?! Let's all go together! Email me at email@example.com and we'll all meet here at the station. We'll get hair and makeup touch-ups by my good friends at Tint Salon. We'll even have food from Pac Island Grill to keep us going, as well as drinks provided by Pepsi.
ABC's The Bachelor is holding a casting call on Thursday, June 18th, at Pacific Place in downtown Seattle. I'm going and I've had quite a few of you message me saying you want to come, too. Why not all go together?!
I've called in some favors and my friends from Tint offered to come and touch up our hair and makeup. And since we'll be doing a bunch of waiting, I'll even bring us lunch. Wahoo!
