About the Author: At age 13, Michael Essany ventured into the lowly world of local cable television by hosting a show from his parents' basement in Valparaiso, Indiana. Essany turned his little talk show, The Michael Essany Show, into a multimillion dollar project that quickly became one of the most talked-about reality television shows in America.

By the time he was 21, he had appeared on The Tonight Show, Oprah, CNN, ET, and Access Hollywood, to name a few. E! Entertainment Television launched The Michael Essany Show to one of the highest rated debuts of any new E! reality series, and it has since been syndicated in the UK and Australia.
