Casting Call: I Love My Gross Guy

February 2013 - Usually when we get emails about casting calls, it involves some aspect of collecting. This one does not, but has us curious enough about the final product that we had to share:



Are you a woman with a dirty little secret? Is your boyfriend/fiancé/husband a dirty obnoxious filthy slob? Do these words fail to even describe the magnitude of overall grossness your man exhibits? Most importantly - do you love him anyway?

Secret or not, a major cable network is looking for men who are messy, sloppy, filthy, or just plain gross and the women who love them. We're looking for big personalities who aren't afraid to share their true habits with the world (biting their toenails, eating out of dumpsters, fear of bathing, etc). Whatever it is, we want to hear from you!

If you think this sounds like you - and for more information - please send your name, contact information, current photos, a description of your relationship, and why you think you'd be perfect for this show to: [email protected].

We look forward to hearing your story!
