Live For The Moment – A First Look

Live For The Moment

Jeff Probst with Roger Childs Live For The Moment, This special broadcasts on Thursday, Jan 28th

Jeff Probst hosts this special that easily could turn into a series (or series of specials) about living your life to the fullest.  And let’s just say that this show tugs at your emotions within a few minutes of its start.  While the story of Roger Childs, the first person featured, may be a bit out of the ordinary, the concept is basically that of this being a TV version of the work that is done by the Make-A-Wish foundation, as it helps Roger and his family live out a few dreams, and trying to gain insight into just how we all should go about living our lives.  I don’t want to give away too much here on Roger’s adventure, but I will give you a hint on one of them – Buzz Aldrin.

In a time where people are depressed with their own lives due to economic troubles and job woos, the timing on this show couldn’t be better.  And as Roger revealed after one of his adventures, we should all finish what we started.  Mark Burnett is a genius in my mind who can do no wrong.  Why not make the most of the time you have and pursue your passions?  Hopefully a session with this show will give you the strength to make a change to your own life.

Even with his failures (“The Restaurant”, “The Casino” & “Pirate Master”) Mark Burnett always manages to entertain.  This is no exception and to be honest, the material is more suited for a shorter story on 20/20 or Dateline, but if you invest the time, you probably won’t regret it.  I’m not sure I could deal with my emotions being manipulated like this every week, but as a series of specials, count me in.

Live For The Moment reveals how one person’s life-changing event inspired them to live life to the fullest. Host Jeff Probst takes someone on a series of adventures and experiences that create special life moments with their family and friends. This person shares their inspiring insights on how they now live their life differently and, in doing so, will possibly change the way others live, too. Jeff Probst and Mark Burnett are executive producers for Jeff Probst, Inc. and Mark Burnett Productions

This one-hour special will be broadcast Thursday, Jan. 28 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT).
