Clark Russell, who previously on The Style Network Show “Split Ends” in 2009, had a completely different experience on The History Channel “Top Gear USA” show. Primarily based around auto-motives on the “Top Gear USA” show, Clark Russell was out of his element of celebrities, red carpet events and women’s fashion; but did learn quite a bit about mechanics.
Fellow hair stylist Jeffrey Lotspeich, who is a female illusionist specializing in Lady Gaga appearance, also had his first televised appearance on the show. No stranger to the stage in the San Francisco and East Bay drag show scene, Jeffrey aka Bobbi Pinn was also out of his element of drag, women’s fashion and beauty when he spent an evening chatting about auto-motives.
The participation of Clark Russell and Jeffrey Lotspeich will be part of the first appearance of female illusionist and openly gay hairstylist on the show, which has a largely male demographic viewership. Clark Russell will be chatting live about the show on his facebook after the show at www.facebook.com/
Images and interviews are available upon request. Contact information for both Clark Russell and Jeffrey Lotspeich are listed above.
