Asian American 'Jersey Shore' Coming To MTV Soon?
After MTV went 24-seasons without casting a single Asian-American male on The Real World, Asian-Americans may finally get a piece of the limelight on a show not-named Americas Next Best Dance Crew on MTV.
Nothing’s official and nothings final, but Tyrese Gibson is apparently co-producing and casting “interesting, attractive, colorful Asian-Americans to cast in a reality show similar to Jersey Shore, Real World, and The Hills.”
If you’re interested, I encourage you to apply and bring some much needed diversity to MTV’s lineup, here’s the Craigslist posting:
Tyrese Gibson’s production company HQ Pictures is looking for interesting, attractive, colorful Asian-Americans to cast in a reality show similar to JERSEY SHORE, REAL WORLD, THE HILLS, etc.. We need beautiful Asian-Americans with lively, strong, and unique personalities between the ages of 18 to 30 with equally interesting life stories and perspectives to share, especially individuals who know about and/or experienced the Koreatown life.
Please email us headshots/photos and a cover letter in the body of the email briefly describing yourself and why you should be included in this show. Competition is fierce as we are getting thousands of applicants so do your best to grab our attention! Be sure to include basic contact info such as name, age, phone #, email, and any other bits of interesting information that will make you stand out. Please feel free to include information and pictures of any of your friends that you think will also be a good candidate for this reality show.
We will be casting and filming on-camera interviews in LOS ANGELES or HOLLYWOOD, CA this month so please send in your info ASAP!

Somehow, the @yahoo.com email address leaves me skeptical. But imagine all the possible Jersey Shore like Asian American characters you’re going to get.
