I was invited to interview New Kids on the Block by Pop TV, all opinions are my own.
There are times as a blogger when I can’t believe that this is my “job”! This was one of those times, I was invited to interview members of New Kids on the Block – Jordan Knight, Joey McIntyre and Danny Wood about their 8th fan cruise and season 2 of their reality show Rock this Boat. This year you get to experience the cruise through their eyes, the band filmed their day-to-day moments with hand-held cameras, so fans get to know what goes on behind the scenes.
For a die-hard Blockhead, it’s the vacation of a lifetime: A four-night tropical cruise with iconic boy band New Kids on the Block.
Follow along with some of the band’s most passionate fans when the sold-out ship sets sail and their unforgettable journey begins. Pop brings you on board for the music, the memories–and in season 2, for even MORE BAND.
Season 2 premieres Wednesday, June 1, 8:30/7:30.
Sitting down and having a conversation with these three was a blast! It felt like chatting with old friends. From the moment we walked into the room they were warm and inviting, we were greeted with hugs!! The dynamic between them is fantastic. They love to laugh, joke and they really appreciate their fans.
My favorite question I asked the guys was “What do you think you would be doing now if there was never NKOTB?
Jordan said he would be working for his brother painting houses. Joey would have attended college and worked in theater (anything to get him on stage) and Danny would have continued his college education at BU (he had a full 4 year scholarship).
I also asked them if they stay in touch when they are not on media tours. Jordan chimed right in and said “Absolutely Not!” We all had a good laugh. They do keep in touch but not daily, they like to “miss each other” and look forward to the time they get to spend together. Danny mentioned it’s like they were never apart and it’s just like old times on the road.
Having this great conversation with Jordan, Joey, and Danny really makes me look forward to watching Rock This Boat!
After the interview we were treated to a Boston Harbor Cruise with the band.
Even my daughter hopped in for a selfie!
