After seven pages of petty and ugly speculation on this thread, complaining of the alleged uneven playing field for Israelis and Jim/J ack the Gellerite (sounds biblical Smile), I suggest you check out Ehud Segev's statement at his website, dated yesterday, that:

"I auditioned for a new PRIMETIME tv show - "PHENOMENON" - that will air on NBC.
This show will be hosted by Criss Angel and Uri Geller as they search for the world's greatest mentalist!
I believe I will get an answer from them soon - so cross your fingers for me!!!"

The foregoing seems to contradict most of the irresponsible posts here.

Why?

Did you not see his posts on YouTube?

Not that there is anything wrong with them.

Just that it looks like he just aint telling the real deal on his site.

I've seen his show on DVD. He's good.

And I'm sure he was out there being close to his family, but he was also "continuing his mission as a performer" on the Israeli version of the show this past year because he got second place.

By coincidence I had visited his site just days ago because a friend let me borrow his DVD and it was posted in a couple of places that he got second place on Israel's "Phenomenon" as he called it. That info is no longer there, or at least I couldn't find it now.

I find it kind of funny that he doesn't know if he's going to be on the show but he starts calling himself Phenomenon Mentalist when just days ago it was different.

I think he was already on and he knew it. Which is fine, because like I said in a previous post, as a voice over talent I've gone to auditions just to be told they HAD to have auditions but I already had the job, so I know how it works.

I don't know about the other contestants but having Jim Callahan and guys like Ehud (who I have seen on Montel Williams with Sylvia Brown - great stuff) on the Phenomenon show will be very interesting to watch.

These two guys know how to handle themselves interestingly.

I predict Ehud will get second place again.

I am very sorry that Ehuds brother was killed in battle. I stated so when it happened.
However the rest, or the majority of the email that I got this morning and the information on his site is NOT correct. I'm sure it will be removed as being grilled about it looms closer, just as the other was removed.
Alex has already pointed out that Ehud did NOT take a hiatus from his profession. In fact he placed second on one the the biggest TV shows in Isreal. Very good indeed, but to say he is resuming his career is just not quite true is it then. To say that he doesn't know if he's on the show is a blatant FIB Smile (Not to be confused with a member here on the Café.)
I wouldn't call these Café post irresponsible in the least.
Yes, that site does contradict what everyone seems to be saying, so Arnon, be careful where you place your bet.

Heavy duty stuff is exactly what I want to see. I am "Wary" of Ehud claiming that he doesn't know if he's on the show. Wouldn't he have transportation plans by now? Smile
Wish I could attend MARS!

Jim, are you saying that people will have a problem to debunk your methods, or to debunk the fact that you are actually just a mentalist like all the other people who were chosen on the show?

If it's the second option then I don't think the viewers will have much problem proving you are just a mentalist.. The first clue is that you have 2315 posts on a major MAGIC forum.. a quick search will make people find you here. And not to mention that you have the tags Mentalist, Magician, Master Magician, Magic Show, Entertainer on your own website.


You sure seem more real than all the other performers.. Smile

As an outsider looking in on this, reading all this thread makes very entertaining reading..i hope Phenom is more so though, and less !@#$%y and bitter..

this thread has turned into some kind of mentalistic soap-opera...

tune in next time when...

I must admit though, going on a show and performing something straight out of the box, and not wanting to perform your own work seems a bit of a missed opportunity to me...

I am using my psychic powers to predict that the 'winner' will be from a somewhere beyond the USA. I am getting a 'B'. Yes, now it is becoming clear. I believe someone from Belgium will come out on top.

Write this down.

I have to see who else is on to make my call, but I like Callahan because he'll bring the most controversy into this thing and he's a likable guy to top it off. America will like him and be intrigued by him.

Someone from Israel will come second.

For season two, Roel will be on and most likely two or three other people even before the auditions begin.

The rest will compete for the five or six spots available (not unlike this first season).

Naturally this is all speculation....

Anyone thought how this place might influence any voting? if someone searches for Phenom might this site's thread come up in the search?

then they'd read the thread..

then they'd make up their minds...

you might all end up indirectly suggesting something you may not wish too...

Nah, the general public is not going to search under "magician" or "magic" for presumed "psychics" nor are they going to expend the energy. They will vote for who and what they like.

I took four years of high school German and I've performed for the troops there. Perhaps I could qualify for the German show? Smile
Lot's of beer there too!

Just got a call from the Preview Center at Universal Studio's ( Where people watch TV pilots etc. for NBC ) ....They are reviewing Phenomenon. I was at a BB gig this afternoon so I didn't get a chance to see it. They said it was mostly about Angel and Geller
They expect more. Perhaps they are shooting more current segments this weekend? Too bad Segev doesn't know if he's on the show yet
