Food television has hit a new low - a dating show set to premier on a major cable network is casting their fishing nets, opening the walk-in refrigerators, and making no reservations for their search for a "foodie" bachelor. Reality TV food porn will now have a slightly different meaning.
The SideDish in Dallas shares the details on the casting call in a post today:
Are you a chef, restaurateur, foodie or gourmet who is ready to find the love of his life? Pilgrim Studios is looking for a single, attractive and charming culinary enthusiast to be our featured bachelor on a new, unscripted show for a major cable network.
The producers set a requirement that the bachelor must "have a strong background in cuisine (food writers and connoisseurs welcome as well!)" to be introduced to and date "a select group of amazing women who share your love for great food and the culinary arts." He should be the "kind of man who thinks that there's nothing sexier than a woman who can cook her way into your heart."
Gag. What about a show where the man cooks his way to a woman's heart? That does happen, right?
But, if you already have someone in mind, here's what you need to do. Have him send his name, age, location, a recent photo and a brief description of why he'd be perfect for this show to the casting director.
At the end of the show will the bachelor pick his mates by handing them prosciutto wrapped asparagus? Be sure and leave your suggestions in the comments.
