'Jersey Shore,' Asian Style?!

Are you ready for an Asian spinoff of MTV’s Jersey Shore? If you’re Asian, are you ready to be stereotyped?

As reported by The Examiner, quoting a recent post on Craigslist, a production company is looking for “attractive Asian-Americans with lively, strong and unique personalities.”

The ad seeks “Interesting, attractive, colorful Asian-Americans to cast in a reality show similar to JERSEY SHORE, REAL WORLD, THE HILLS, etc.”

Now, if that’s not enough to make you worry, The Examiner says, “People who are “obsessed with Asian culture or people” are also invited to apply.

Hmmm, any takers? Or are we cynical enough to think they will get only Asian stereotypes–the geeky Asian guy and the sexy Asian girl?!
