TVgasm gets a lot of PR e-mails from various sources asking us to plug some show or alert people to casting calls. Normally, we laugh at them because we’d rather not bother our readers with a bunch of useless shit when the only thing really exciting about most of these e-mails is the number of exclamation points people feel they must use to get their point across. SEE, IT WORKS!!!!
Anyway, we recently received an e-mail that we just had to share. You see, Bunim-Murray wants help deciding who is going to be in the next version of the Real World/Road Rules Challenge, but instead of just having the viewers pick teams between Good and Bad, you will get a chance to go up against the very best and brightest of the Bunim-Murray Crew. That’s right, it’s a casting call to be on the Challenge.
More details and the official e-mail after the jump.Here’s the deal: there have been a lot of people out there that look at the challenges and say “I can do that” and really, exactly how hard can it be to sit around a huge house, get drunk, and splash in the pool all day? 45 minutes to an hour of physical exertion for that privilege is nothing, right? If this sounds like something you want to do, the first casting is this Saturday in New York City. The rules are simple: you need to be between 18 and 25, have a picture ID, and bring a recent picture of yourself (you won’t get it back). It all takes place at Tonic, 727 7th Ave., New York NY 10019. You can also send your auditions in by mail if you can’t make it to New York.
Rachel and Veronica won’t be there, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get a piece of Tina.
Now, we don’t have to tell you what kind of great opportunity this is for all of you. This is a small step into the life of reality whoredom that only a few people ever get a chance to take. Yes, you may not see The Miz or Rachel and Veronica, who have all said they are going to take time-outs from the Challenges, but there are still plenty of others to make the experience worthwhile. And hey, if one of you mere mortals hooks up with Tonya, we’ll give you a free TVgasm t-shirt. If that’s not an incentive, I don’t know what is.
