The costume for this program has the distinction of being singled out
by Kurt as the most embarrassing costume he's ever worn. The costume
was so bad that after using it, Kurt burnt it. Here's the quote from
an interview in "Famous" magazine from 2001:
"Oh, easy. We burnt it. Remember the movie The Rocketeer?
I got this costume made based on that, and it didn't get done and
didn't get done and didn't get done. And then finally the costume was
sent to the arena where I was competing. I'm in this competition
that's nationally televised, I open up the box, and it's this
top-to-bottom red costume, silver things on it, and it's the thinnest
material ever in the whole world. I basically had to pad my jockstrap
so no one knew what my religion was. You could see everything. It was
the tightest, thinnest, scariest costume. I just felt awful in it and
I skated awful in it. So we destroyed it after that."
