Jones, who is teaching a Winter Term class on independent filmmaking, says his weekend job at an Indianapolis nightclub brought him and the program's producers together. "It just so happened that they were holding auditions there one night and they asked me to try out, and... I was picked. It was very possibly on the basis of being the only college-educated, assistant professor, cross-dressing ninja who tried out," he says jokingly.

Jones adds, "It was a very interesting experience and should make for an entertaining show. I'm not allowed to say much more because of a disclosure contract, but I can say that it was much more 'rehearsed' than you might think a reality show would be."
