This is definitely the day for strange robot news. First robots touting
sex clubs, now this. The ABC reality show Wife Swap, is seeking
with at least one child between 6 and 17 in which one parent is a robot
"enthusiast". Apparently, the premise of the show is that the wives of
two wildly differing families are swapped for one week and the ensuing
madness is turned into a reality TV show. Julia Jenkins, one the show's
casting producers says they have always wanted to do a show involving a
robot geek and now they're asking
robots.net to help find one. If your family meets the requirements and they
pick you to do the show, you'd get paid $20,000 for your troubles in
addition to your 15 minutes of fame. Read on for the details and contact
information - and make
sure you let Julia know that robots.net sent you her way.
My name is Julia Jenkins and I am a casting producer for ABC families
hit reality show 'Wife Swap.'
We are currently casting for our fourth season and we are
families that are ROBOT ENTHUSIASTS. This has been something we have
wanted to feature for 3 years and we are very interested in finding that
GREAT family! We cast everywhere from Maine to California, and this
would bring a fun and unique dynamic to the show.
We are currently casting for our third season, so don't miss out
amazing experience! Families that appear on the show receive $20,000 as
a thank you. And if you refer a family that appears on the show you
would receive $1000.
If you are unfamiliar with the show, Wife Swap is a fascinating
what happens when two married couples see themselves and their spouses
in a whole new light. Time Magazine calls Wife Swap "a riveting
examination of family values." The New York Post says, "It should be
called 'Life Swap' because it's not just the wives who learn something
here. It's the families."
The premise of Wife Swap is simple: for seven days, two wives
different families with very different values exchange husbands,
children and lives (but not bedrooms) to discover what it's like to live
a different woman's life.
Here at 'Wife Swap' we look for a two-parent home with at least one
child between the ages of 6 and 17 living at home fulltime.
If you have a family and you are interested in applying for the
if you know of any great families that you would like to refer, please

Thanks! I look forward to hearing from you!

Sounds like a lot of fun, having never seen the show I have questions……So you swap wives for 10 days, but what exactly does this mean? So some strange woman I've never seen before is going to come to my house and cook, clean, drive the children to school, etc. But what about the more important duties that a female spousal unit is suppose to take care of?
When techies go out with thier Girlfriends and meet other like minded folk network guys, automation engineers or programmers out with thier girlfriends, as couples they are hardly "wildly different".
As soon as the guys start talking "tech" the girls go "Not again" and end up chatting by themselves. I bet thats what will happen on TV.
I have seen the show before (just once, hated it) and they appear to choose families that will clash spectacularly for the sake of ratings. While this may make for better ratings, it looks like a week of hell for the families involved.
Just my $.02
I am sure that this will be typical Hollywood anti-engineering
propaganda. They will look for the most socially inept engineer that
they can find and try to make us all look like a bunch of total fools.
Ever wonder why the USA is falling behind in the world?
Pull your head in, Nelson.
Jesus wouldn't like to hear you talk like that.
