Even if you’re DIY-minded, you can’t always get what you want done. Time, money and abilities have a funny way of sidetracking our plans to redo that kitchen, update that bathroom or upgrade a living room. But fear not! For the low, low price of your dignity privacy, you could get some of those renos you need done for free. Here are two television casting calls we came across. Please note that we have NOTHING to do with these TV shows or casting decisions. We’re just the messengers, people.

KITCHEN MAKEOVER! CASTING NEW TELEVISION SHOW
Do you have a friend or loved one who has a real passion for cooking but is trapped in an outdated, nonfunctional or just plain ugly kitchen? Now’s your chance to nominate him/her to receive a kitchen worthy of a gourmet chef! We are currently casting dynamic homeowners who love to cook but are in desperate need of a completely new kitchen. We’re also looking for you…our accomplice in this mission. If selected, you would help our team install a state-of-the-art kitchen for your frustrated foodie.
If you’re interested in nominating a cook and being a part of our exciting new show, please email us the following information:
Your name, address, phone number, occupation, age and relationship to nominee
Your nominee’s name, address, occupation and age
Photo of you (2 pictures max)
Photo of nominee (2 pictures max)
Photos of the nominee’s kitchen (3 pictures max)
Tell us why you are nominating this person. We want to hear about his/her love of cooking – favorite type of food to cook, favorite restaurants, favorite chefs – and what she/he doesn’t like about their current kitchen. The more personality/detail the better!
Only emailed submissions including all of the above will be considered. Please send to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please put the name of your city in the subject line and where you saw this posting.
ACT NOW. We’re casting the series IMMEDIATELY!
PLEASE NOTE: Although all of the materials and labor for the kitchen makeover are given to the Nominee free of charge, we are required by law to notify the IRS of the transaction. As a result, the Nominee will be responsible to pay taxes on the total cost of the makeover.
Exciting stuff and good luck to anyone applying! It’s best to presume that deadlines are ASAP as casting for reality shows tends to happen pretty quickly. If you’ve ever been on a TV show for home improvement, design or decor, let us know how your experience went!
