Complaint Review: 1iota / FABLifeShow - Internet
1iota / FABLifeShow 1iota, The 1iota Team, FABLife, The FAB Life Show by Tyra Banks FABLife Show Taping / 1iota treating their pregnant guests horrible Los Angeles CA
As many of you know Tyra Banks started a new TV show called the FABLife Show which is currently taping shows in Los Angeles.
I have never been to a live show taping before, but when my friend told me Tyra was doing a baby shower episode on FAB life and wanted all pregnant women in her audience, I thought it would be a fun thing to check out since I'm currently 8 months pregnant. The show hinted that they probably would have some great gifts for the mommies-to-be. Who doesn’t like some free baby stuff? Remember that Mother’s day @TheEllenShow where the audience went home with all those amazing gifts?! Who wouldn’t want to be on a show like that??? So I followed the instructions to get tickets to the show and a few days later I received my "priority tickets.” I was excited and anxiously awaited the day of the taping! Few days prior to the date, I received two follow up emails from the show. The first email suggested that there would be gifts on the show, "so we advise that you MAAAYBE come prepared with lots of space in your car.” The second email came with my ticket info and stated that if I didn't plan to show up, to decline my ticket so that it could be given to someone on their waiting list.
Nowhere in these emails was it ever mentioned that there would be a chance that I would NOT be getting into the show! I planned on having space in my car, coming in with my ticket and arriving early. I was going to be ready for a show!Following the instructions, I showed up at 10AM. Priority check in was from 10:00-10:30. Their emails stated that if I arrived after 10:30 I would lose my priority status and might not make it in with general admission. I wanted to make sure that would not happen.The show also stated not to bring any water or food because it would not be allowed in. So although I am 8 months pregnant and hungry all the time, I didn't bring any food. I assumed that since general admission was at 10:30 that the whole audience of pregnant women would not have to wait around long and they would probably offer at least water once we were inside. I was wrong!
When I arrived at 10 there was already a long line. It turned out, that besides the priority list and general tickets, there was a “house guest list” for friends of the show. Soon someone came out and tried to find people from the line who were on that list and shuffled them inside. But, I still assumed that all priority ticket holders were going to be allowed entrance.After AN ENTIRE HOUR of standing, they made all the general admission people leave because too many people showed up from the “house list” and there were no more seats. They picked out about 12 of us from the priority list (me included) to stay and the rest were let go. AFTER ANOTHER HOUR PAST, more "house guests" arrived and as each arrived they cut our group more and more. In the end, only 3 priority ticket holders were let in and after standing in line on swelling pregnant legs, with no food or water for 2 hours, I was told to go home.The employees at Tyra acted as if any ticket holders who were not on the “ house list” were like cockroaches to them. No, I'm wrong. Actually, general admission ticket holders were dirt, priority ticket holders were like cockroaches.
I feel extremely disappointed and mislead! Nowhere in my many emails from the show did they ever mention that I might not be let in. If I knew that there was even chance that I would not be allowed to enter on the day of the show I never would have signed up. This was harsh treatment for any guest! But to make pregnant woman stand for two hours, in the sun, with swelling legs, with no food or water, is a major health risk. The least they could have done was bring us some water and offer us a seat.
I reached out to the person who invited me from production and she apologized fo the miscommunications and invited me for a future taping which I will not attend. Someone from the ticketing company also reached out and blamed everything on their disclaimer saying that tickets are not guaranteed. Naturally, there is a tiny disclaimer hidden at the bottom of the tickets that I did not read. Of course they hide that language so you will neglect to look for it, therefore assuring that they fill their audience seats while screwing you over at the same time.Someone might think if a show goes out of its way to an audience full of pregnant ladies, they would at least have the decency to treat them with some respect. Not so FAB treatment at all.
