Casting For A Woman Who Loves Her "Gross Guy"!
I just got this casting notice:
"Are you a woman with a dirty little secret? Is your boyfriend/fiancé/husband a dirty, obnoxious, filthy slob? Do these words fail to even describe the magnitude of overall grossness your man exhibits? Most importantly--do you love him anyway?
"Secret or not, a major cable network is looking for men who are messy, sloppy, filthy, or just plain gross and the women who love them. We're looking for big personalities who aren't afraid to share their true habits with the world (biting their toenails, eating out of dumpsters, fear of bathing, etc). Whatever it is, we want to hear from you!
"If you think this sounds like you--and for more information--please send your name, contact information, current photos, a description of your relationship, and why you think you'd be perfect for this show to: firstname.lastname@example.org."
Sounds like it could be fun, but there's one thing I find gross about it--and it's not the fact that they want a guy who doesn't bathe and who eats out of dumpsters.
It's that it's exclusively straight relationships they're looking for, as if no others exist.
Maybe they think gays would never bite their toenails?
Nah, they're just plain limited in their thinking. Which is gross!
