I saw the one with Zev and Nashama.  How was it different from reality?

My response to them was "no thanks" with the explanation that I wouldn't
trust what they would put out, after the twist on the truth that they
gave Zev and Nashama.

I got a good giggle out of this:

Subject: ABC seeks famlies who practice voluntarily simple lifestyles!

Dear Sir or Madam,

I'm a Casting Producer with ABC Television and we're looking to feature
families who live by the "voluntary simplicity" philosophy - families
who feel that all of the excess technology and "stuff" is unnecessary -
families who keep it simple and don't get involved with the craziness of
the outside world. We seek that very unique, distinct, fascinating
approach to life - a philosophy that perhaps others might not have
considered...a philosophy that other families could benefit from! I know
that your community encompasses the ideals we're looking for - those
great folks that spend true quality time with each other and don't rely
on tv, video games, or other electronics to entertain their children
24/7. I feel that you could be a great example for other families and
would love to speak with anyone outspoken, outgoing, and passionate
about their beliefs and their lifestyle.

We're currently casting for ABC's hit family show, 'Wife Swap!' Please
don't be confused by the title - "Wife Swap" is a family show on ABC
primetime. The premise is simple: two moms from two very different
families get the opportunity to swap lives (but not bedrooms - everyone
has their own!) for a week to experience what it's like to live a
different lifestyle - and to see what they can teach each other about
their own! In this case we're looking to feature families who feel that
happiness doesn't revolve around having the latest gadget, fastest car,
or the biggest bank account. I would greatly appreciate you forwarding
my information on to any of your friends, neighbors, colleagues, and
family members who might be interested in sharing their lives with us
for a week!

All featured families will receive a $20,000 financial honorarium as a
thank-you for their time - and $1000 goes to anyone who refers a family
that makes it on the show! We are looking for two parent families with
children (ages 5 and older) who are ready for adventure! I appreciate
your assistance in reaching out to these great families and look forward
to hearing from you soon!

Best,

Heather Teta
