Living with the wolfman…

Did anyone see this show? It premiered Tuesday night. Here’s a video clip. (Watch the following one too. It’s longer.) Or watch the entire first show here… Check out the scene where the wolf has his jaws around her neck.

In the show British wolf expert Shaun Ellis introduces his fiancée Helen Jeffs to the wolf world. Helen has to eat and bathe, or not bathe, like a wolf. She learns to growl, bark, and bite. She even has to claim her part of a kill and vomit into the mouth of a wolf. All to be accepted as part of the pack!

I’m a big believer in using reality TV for research, and this seems like the mother lode for a wolf-shape-shifter author! In addition to all the wolf interaction there is even a romance subplot and added conflict as the two balance living like wolves with living like humans. Uh, what does that sound like?

So, who watched? Any comments? How far would you go for true love? Would you roll around and fight with a bunch of wolves? Regurgitate in their mouths? ‘Cause this isn’t a novel–this is real!

    Thanks for the clip site. Haven’t watched the show, I’m not into reality shows, but this was very interesting. I can see it as a gold mine for authors writing shifting stories.

    It would be a gold mine for authors as Cathy says. But, NOPE, not me. I wouldn’t do it. It would have to be like my doggies, where we compromise or cooperate on behaviors with each other.
