Casting Call: Want to Date a Millionaire on TV, or Be Told You're Nowhere Near Good Enough to Date a Millionaire on TV?
Single men and ladies, it's finally your East Coast chance to be taken apart and maybe put back together again by Patti Stanger, of you know, The Millionaire Matchmaker? That utterly heinous show that also, somehow, satisfies, perhaps because she's always telling the millionaire men to grow up and actually be decent human beings? (Disclosure: Fan here. Sorry.)
Anyway, per the caps-oriented casting call:
ARE YOU SINGLE AND TIRED OF GOING ON THE SAME DATES WITH GUYS OR GIRLS THAT ARE BORING AND DULL? HAVE YOU EVER WANTED TO DATE A MILLIONAIRE?
We wouldn't say "boring and dull," more like, "bipolar and unavailable Peter-Pan-syndrome-afflicted man-children." (Disclosure 2: Millionaire, schmillionaire, we'd settle for "not having roommates at 45." Bonus points for hygiene!) But anyway. Carry on...
We are CASTING guy and girl daters for all of our upcoming Millionaire Matchmaker episodes. If you are a guy and girl 21 years and over and tired of the dating scene and want to spice things up with one of our Millionaires, sign up NOW. If selected you will be invited to one of our casting calls in New York City. If one of our Millionaires select you, you will be featured on our show as the one who goes on a date with one of our millionaires. (You will be Paid if you were selected by our millionaires to go on a date. You will NOT be paid to attend the casting call)
Okay, whoa -- we had no idea those people got paid along with going on their helicopter-ride-fancy-dinner-makeout-sessions; we just assumed they were reality TV wannabes hoping for a break. Silly us. Payment! This spices up the deal, indeed.
Now, be forewarned: They claim that not everyone who has applied is invited to this casting call, and, well, you do have to submit a photo. If you take rejection hard, don't attempt this. As we post, the jury is still out on us. Is it bad to identify oneself as a "professional blogger"? What about "binge-drinker"?
If invited, remember to wear a dark-colored cocktail dress! And let us know how it goes!
