Casting Call - Mustachians on a TV show
« on: March 12, 2013, 02:57:40 PM »
Hey everyone. I recently got the following email through the blog's contact button. I was thinking of signing up myself, but it sounds like they are based in NYC, plus they are looking for people who "live well on VERY little". Since the MMM family leads a pretty expensive lifestyle, we probably wouldn't qualify. But some of the far more badass readers of the forum surely would!

Name: Shauna Woods

Email: secondseasoncasting@gmail.com

Comments: Hello,

I work in casting at a major NYC television production company. We’re casting a series on a major television network that follows families, couples or individuals who live well on very little.

Below is a casting notice for your review, and to post on your blog or forward to interested parties. If interested please contact me at secondseasoncasting@gmail.com.

Sincerely,

Shauna Woods

CASTING NOTICE:

Do you have a family member or friend who knows how to stretch their dollar to its absolute breaking point? Does the idea of spending money on anything other than what is ABSOLUTELY necessary make them sick to their stomach? Do they love showing off how very little they spend?

Then we want to meet them! TLC is currently casting for a second season of a hit show and is seeking families, couples or individuals who live well on very, VERY little.  In this day and age, many people want to save more and spend less. But for them, saving every penny possible borders on OBSESSION!

If this sounds like someone you know, please NOMINATE them by sending an email to SECONDSEASONCASTING@GMAIL.COM the following information:

Name/s:
Age:
Address:
Phone:
Email:

And tell us a little about their lifestyle and why you think they made the decision to live this way. Please give specific examples and please include photos of them.

It sounds like it's for that Cheapskates show that there's a thread here or on ERE about, the "I drink my own urine to save on water bills" one.

Isn't Bakari near NJ?  I would pay $5 to see him on this show.

Which probably takes me out of the running.

But I agree with what C might be getting at.  Obsession and hysteria don't seem to fall in line with the stoic parts of the philosophy.

Indeed! That's why I didn't respond to this "Shauna" email..

Cheapskates is more about cheap entertainment (at least from the one episode I skimmed through on YouTube), rather than making a point of convincing everyone that a frugal lifestyle is best. And Mustachians are generally not cheapskates at all, so the description in the casting call didn't seem suitable to me.

Also, Bakari lives near San Francisco, not NJ.
