Casting director Sarah Monson (pictured), who blogs as The Bitchlorette and contributes to various online outlets, is reaching out to would-be reality TV show contestants in an unusual way. She has authored a new e-book titled Me on TV: The First Ever Kick-Ass Guide to Get You on Any Reality Show, officially released today.
The price for this 130-page tome is relatively steep – $47. But Monson, whose credits include Blind Date, The Bachelor and Survivor, insists she has personally put her methods to the test:
“I’ve even gotten myself cast on a few reality shows and game shows, including Who Wants To Be A Millionaire and How Do I Look? I’ve tested this stuff and it absolutely works.”
Among the testimonials on Monson’s e-book website is one from TV host and producer Conor Knighton. He suggests there is a “science to finding the next Snooki” and that no matter how an individual comes to the reality TV casting suite, “just remember – you’re not here to make friends.”
