True Life: MTV’s “True Life” Is Now Casting…Here’s Everything You Need to Know


I get a lot of junk mail in my inbox each day, but my eyes bugged out of my head when I got this one. One of my most beloved guilty pleasures shows, MTV’s “True Life” is casting for a new episode: TRUE LIFE: I’M DATING A CHEAPSKATE. Gah!!! Could anything be more perfect? If you think you’re a great candidate to star in the episode, here’s what you need to know:

Do you have a boyfriend or girlfriend who pinches so many pennies it’s pinching your last nerves? Do your romantic evenings out often include coupons? Or does your partner forgo restaurants altogether in favor of dining establishments that feature value meals? Will he or she search far and wide for the best price possible on gas or goods no matter how inconvenient it might be?Is your partner someone who could actually afford some of the finer things in life but just can’t bring him or herself to part with any greenbacks without a fight? Have you had enough of this behavior and are demanding the wallet get less squeaky or you’re walking?If you appear to be between the ages of 16 and 28 and have answered ‘yes’ anything above, MTV wants to hear your story!
