Criss Angel-Mindfreak in Cancun with Lizzy

Usually on the weekends Leta and I head to Las Cabañas Beach Club which we just call The City Beach Club because it's just easier. From weekend to weekend not much happens and everything is pretty much the same.

This past weekend however we had a little bit of excitement!

Earlier in the day we noticed that down in front of the Salvia on the beach there was a film crew filming a girl doing some sexy belly dance moves with the ocean as the backdrop. The film crew eventually showed up at the City Beach Club after they were done filming that. Since there was a film crew there a few weeks before just taking advantage of the sun and relaxing, we didn't think much of it.

Then we remembered that Criss Angel was suppose to be in town and after seeing the "Mindfreak" hat on a crew member we put the two and two together.

After a while several crew members approached us to ask us if we wanted to be in the show. Well of course we do silly! Beats just sitting here in the sun doing nothing (yeah i know...poor us). Another crew member came by and asked me to be one of the people that Criss performs a trick on and I certainly wasn't going to turn that down because Criss is a bit of a hottie.

They had us sign waivers and as more people show up we see who we think is Criss Angel. There isn't a lot of fanfair or security so we are confused a little and debate as to whether or not who we see is Criss or what Leta thinks is his brother.

Finally they call us up to the bar so that they can start with the filming. The staff point me out as one of the people to do his trick on and I walk up to him and say "Nice to meet you" and shake his hand. I paid special attention to his finger and toe nails (don't ask me why). They were painted black except they were what I like to call "Mayan Toes" meaning they were probably painted about a month ago and had sort of been chipped and picked away. Since Criss has style, I wondered if this was the look he was going for or if he just was too busy or too lazy to fix them up nice. God knows I get that way. So does Joyce. I mean we all have at one point or another but for some stupid reason I pondered such a silly thing.

So Criss and his crew start playing musical chairs with people around the bar. For some reason, who they sit next to the other is rather important. Criss got behind the bar and did a bit of an introduction, made himself a rum and coke and got himself situated. They got the bartenders to give us some drinks (looks better on camera) and the filming began. Criss did the first trick with a guy from Columbia. It consisted of Criss guessing the Columbian's "favorite drink". Criss invisioned the drink in the glass, said that it wasn't the proper glass for it but took a sip and then grabbed a lime and chewed on that. Behold....his favorite drink was Tequila! He did the same trick with me and another girl from New York. For some reason there was some confusion as to whether he would use me or some other girl. His deciding factor was our eyes I think. Criss asked me to raise my sunglasses and asked some other girl to do the same. After looking lovingly into both of our eyes he chose me (I'm the bomb!) to do the trick and told me to keep my sunglasses on top of my head.

He gave me a napkin and a pen and asked me to write down my favorite drink. He told me not to show anyone and to crumple it up into a ball and hold it in my hand. He took the glass, put his finger to the bottom side of it and made like the glass was filling to the top. He went to take a drink and then licked his lips which made me realize he had guessed it correctly and then shouts out, after some lip smacking, that my favorite drink is "Beer!". I say yes, but be specific! He states that this isn't a beer that you can find everywhere and isn't extremely popular but is mostly found in Mexico. He guesses Modelo and of course my sweety pie is totally correct. He asks me what I've written on the napkin, so I hand it to him, he uncrumples it and shows the camera and everyone around the bar how correct he was.

He did the trick again with the New Yorker except when he was done the trick with me, she said, "do me, pick my drink!". I would have kept it just at "DO ME!", but hey.....I guess some children watch the show so you have to be careful. Anyhow, he guessed her favorite drink as a Margarita.....Lime to be exact and that was the end of that portion.

Next Criss wanted to gather us all around the front of the bar so that we would yell out "Mindfreak!" and cheer like mad people. He had a shot of Tequila in the scene because you know.....this is Mexico. Cancun, Mexico to be exact!

They had one more trick to do and again we gathered around the bar. Criss got on top of it and Leta and I had a great view of his crotch. I mean how much closer do you want to get? (Don't ask the girl he was with later at The City Nightclub......she would say "A LOT CLOSER....and I DID!".


Ok. So Criss starts asking everyone what our favorite shots are and as he asks specific people, he pulls out his hankerchief and drapes it between his legs. With a zippidy zoo da, he lifts the hankerchief and low and behold, we are presented with a pyramid of various shots. Taaa Daaaa! Woooooo!!!!

Next was the story telling/interview of what Criss had done just minutes earlier. Leta was interviewed and then I was. They did a few other people and oh lucky me (not) they made me do it again. It kind of sucks because you know, you don't get paid to look like a retard on t.v. Well, some people do, unfortunately I didn' least not this time!

We are finally finished with the day portion of filming and people start taking out thier cameras and I realize I at least have my cell phone camera (thank god for that!) and decide to get a pic with Criss Angel himself:

Here's Leta and Criss. I probably should have taken the picture like Leta did so mine wouldn't be so dark but oh welly welp. Shit happens. I can just buy the DVD and point to it and say, "Look! Thats me!".
After making nice with some of the crew members and joking around with them and taking a few pictures with their fancy cameras, we talked about heading to The City that evening. I hadn't planned to go out but figured that since we had so much fun during the day that we might as well try and meet up with the crew at night.
Leta and I met up with my friend Lynda and her friend Mollie outside the club. We worked our magic to skip the line and got in after some disorganization and frustration. Normally it's easy for us to get a table but I guess since it was a special night we weren't that important anymore. For some reason our bad luck turned into good and a Captain got us some drinks and as we stood around wondering if we could get a table, Criss finally made his entrance.
He got up on stage and introduced himself, got the crowd all hyped up and gave away one of his DVD's to whatever girl could dance the craziest/sexiest or whichever the crowd voted was the best.
After that I believe he went up to his VIP area which was right above us so that he could have a few drinks and so that people could get pictures with him. As they walked by we said hello to the crew members and got a few happy smiles and kisses. There was a lot going on with loud music and pictures and before you knew it he was coming down the stairs again. They were moving to a different area and lucky me, the owner/manager (don't ask, not sure what he is at this point) saw me and signalled for me to follow them. I called the girls with us and we headed to the VIP Lounge where Criss did a couple more tricks for the show.
I got lucky again and was seated right in front of him. He twisted a Corona bottle right in front of our eyes and when Leta made a comment full of sexual inuendo he reached over and asked for a kiss on the cheek only to have his lips planted right on Leta's. I saw it as they were right above me and his handcuff necklace bonked me in the head. Thanks Criss! But lucky lucky Leta!
We thought it was over but he did do one more trick which consisted of pulling a random object out of the back of his pants.
We were asked not to take pictures so that he could get the filming done with and get his party on ASAP. So I refrained which kind of sucks really cuz it was a very intimate environment with maybe 15 people.
It's time to head back to the club but Criss is angry that the object he pulled out of his behind is a dirty plunger so decides to make a stop at the bathroom. We all wait around and when he comes out he starts making out with some chica lots of tongue action and smiles.
He heads back up to his VIP area and I get lucky with a VIP hookup and end up just below him. Criss proceeds to have a good time with more fans, more alcohol and more making out. I know he came out on stage one more time and gave out t-shirts and stuff but quickly headed back up to his area for more making out with a local. LOL. Lucky girl I say!
All in all it was a really fun day and we felt extra special because of the whole thing. Criss has a lot of charisma and is a really cool guy. If you want to see some of his stunts and illusions, just head on over to and type in Criss Angel for a taste of what he does.
Here are some more crappy pics. I was more into the whole experience of it all and not so much into getting the best pics ever. But if you are fan, I'm sure they will tickle you pink. Check out his funky new hair (I prefer it like this actually), jewlery and whatever funky accessories that add to the Criss Angel character!

OH. The show should air sometimes in August or September. So watch out for Lizzy with Crissy.

    If you have Cablemas AKA Cablemenos, Mindfreak airs on A&E which is channel 33. If I had known this I would have watched that channel a lot more. I happened to catch it last night. I suppose eventually it will air here in Cancun. For the US, they told us August or September.

    As for your toes....when they are that bad, they deserve mentioning!
