Casting calls for extremely organized and supremely disorganized people

by respaced on August 19, 2011

If this is how you feel about your house and you have a bit of an exhibitionist
streak, perhaps you should answer one of the casting calls below.

I don’t know how I feel about reality TV shows that try to “help” people. On the one hand, sometimes people genuinely receive the help they need, as was the case of a mama friend who appeared on Super Nanny. On the other hand, I’ve seen too many episodes of Hoarders on A&E, where the people with the hoarding disorder were further traumatized by the caliber of “help” they received.

So consider the following casting call as information, and not necessarily an endorsement:

Casting Call:
Looking for people who need the help of professional organizers to clean up their cluttered homes in the Alabama, Georgia and Louisiana area.

Extreme Shoppers needed for new reality show on major cable network. They are looking for people who fill their homes with things they don’t need and probably shouldn’t have purchased, people whom embody the “shop ’til you drop” mentality.

HGTV is looking for America’s “neatest” people, people who keep their homes clean and organized to the point where others think you are either “brilliant or nuts.”

What do you think of these prospective shows? Good ideas or more exploitation of vulnerable people?
