You know you've thought about it before: the day you're going to get your big break.

Whether it's dancing in a club, walking through the mall, or shopping in the grocery store, many of us fantasize about the day some producer will discover us for some innate quality, and turn us into some kind of T.V. star -- or you could always go the Kardashian route, anyway.

Your chance to break onto the small screen could be coming up this Sunday; the Cooking Channel's Cris Nannarone is filming live at kitchenetta.
