In case you missed it, this week a reality talent show contestant finally told her fellow contestants what we’ve been dying to tell them for years: “You’re not gonna make it, get a job.”

The Dutch-born Jan van de Stool makes her living as a music therapist, but decided to appear on Channel Nine’s Australia’s Got Talent to deliver an important message.

As the Sydney Morning Herald reports, van de Stool dedicated her performance to “starry-eyed friends who are not content to be earth-bound” and gave them a heaping dose of reality:

If you’re sure there’s nothing you can’t do, this song’s for you

If you’re sure there’s no height too high to climb, this song’s for you

If you’re sure there’s nothing you can’t do

No goal too evasive to pursue, this song’s for you

You’re not gonna make it

You’re not gonna make it

All that idle daydreaming will turn you into a slob

You’re not gonna make it

You’re not gonna make it

Get a job!

Yes, it’s basically everything you’ve ever wanted to tell someone appearing on a reality singing show, only it’s coming from someone appearing on a reality singing show.

Sure enough, van de Stool managed to get four ‘yes’ verdicts from the judging panel, which this season includes Eddie Perfect, Kelly Osbourne, Sophie Monk, and Ian “Dicko” Dickson.

“I’m always struck by how many talented people there are in Australia – and how many people are deluded,” van de Stool told Fairfax of her motivations to appear on the program.

“I see it all the time. People don’t realise they don’t have talent. They just have dreams. And dreams and talent are very different. So I try to help them before they go down the long road of disappointment.”

“I try to get to them early and say, ‘Only professionals can get there.’ It’s lovely to have dreams. But you’ve got to be realistic.” Apparently van de Stool isn’t buying what reality shows are selling.

“We all know that’s not true,” she said of the claim often made by judges that it’s “whats on the inside that counts”. “It’s absolutely about how you look, and you’ve got to take that into consideration.”
