Christian’s intention was only to live there for six months, but there was a time when he ran out of money, so he started looking for a job because he couldn’t stay like that; he became a Spanish teacher. It was then that he decided that he would give himself a chance and live there.
How did you get into television?
A friend of Christian’s told him that they were looking for foreigners to participate in the program “The abnormal trial”, where a group of people met to talk about the differences and similarities between countries.
Chris told him no, that he wanted to do it because it was to talk about sensitive issues, of which he was not an expert, and he did not want to make Mexico look bad.
His friend didn’t listen to him and signed him up without him realizing it and that’s how he got on television…
