The website laid out some of the requirements:
We will consider families who can show a core stability and I can stop reading right now.OK, OK, I'll let you read the rest:
who would be capable of having camera crews of three to four people in their home for two to three days at a stretch, who are articulate and well-studied in their child's disorders, and who exhibit forceful personalities in finding solutions.
OK, so no on the core stability.
Camera crews: Do I have to feed them, or will there be Kraft Services? If it's the latter, can I eat off of the Kraft Services table? Will they be using our bathrooms or will there be Porta Potties set up in the backyard? If it's the latter, can I use the Porta Potties?
Articulate and well-studied in their child's disorders: I'm the longshoreman of special needs parents. I'm fluent in profanity and all of my knowledge comes from on-the-job-training. Now fuck off.
Forceful personalities in finding solutions: Are two out of those five words enough?
The tribal council ceremonies would get pretty redundant as we would each vote ourselves off of the island week after week. And then there would be the gut-wrenching scene when we are told that this show doesn't work that way and we all have to stay.
Anyway, I've missed my chance, because the window for submissions is now closed. According to the website, they were "inundated with responses". I hope that all goes well for the lucky winners. I promise to be on the front lines wearing my FREE (TBD) t-shirt when the DCFS hauls the poor mother away.
