Jennifer Lewis-Hall:
Imagine finding the perfect car just for you. That’s the premise behind a show called “Car Matchmaker”. Our Jason Lee talked to the show’s host, Spike Feresten.

Jason Lee:
Spike Good Morning. I love the concept of this show. Tell us about Car Matchmaker.

Spike Feresten:
Car Matchmaker is a show where I help buyers find the perfect car that matches their life.

Jason Lee:
Now were you always a car guy or is this something new for you?

Spike Feresten:
Well yeah I've been a car guy since I was two years old. Helping people find cars my whole life and decided to turn it into a TV show since I like it so much.

Jason Lee:
Now tell me if this happens to you because my father is in the car business and people ask him for advice all the time, but then they don't take his advice. Do you get that?

Spike Feresten:
Exactly. Exactly. I say that all the time. I have a little bit of an advantage on this show because I don't just give them the advice, I put them in the car and give them some real meaningful wheel time. And after they drive one of the three choices I give them or all three they go now I understand what you're talking about. It's not just words it's a tactile experience of driving the car that usually pushes them over the edge.

Jason Lee:
Awesome. So tell us where and when we can watch Car Matchmaker.

Spike Feresten:
We are on Wednesday night. Esquire Network. 9/8 Central.

Jason Lee:
Spike Feresten thanks so much for your time this morning. We appreciate it.

Spike Feresten:
Alright thank you Jason.

Jason Lee:
And Eye Opener continues.
