Alright---my brothers and I have been thinking about entering to see if we get cast for the new reality show on Fox Trading Spouses. And I really want to do it. It seems like a fun thing, I mean we're deffinately unique, and well...let's just say outsiders don't get our comedy.....

Right now all we need is the pictures of our family, and why we want to be on the show, and then we send in an e-mail.....

So yes...that's what's going on with me at the moment.....

hmmmm ... Well Lorax, this is interesting because "Trading Spouses" at first sight is synonymous with "Wife Swapping" and I think I know you enough now to guess that that is NOT what you are talking about ...

Wanna tell us non-US residents what this show is about?

As far as I've heard, 'Trading Spouses' has been made by Fox because another network purchased the rights to 'Wife Swap' and Fox wanted to copy the format and make the show so it looked like they are doing something original except they didn't want to pay for it.

Essentially it is exactly the same, just it's being made by a cheapskate channel.

Feel free to correct me Lorax if I've misheard my information!

O_o

k ... wife-swapping is an old term for swinging. This cannot be it. Are we talking about the show where parents of 2 family units are swapped over so that they get to reak havoc in somebody elses family for a week?

please say it is so ...

Ummm, Fox sucks but I say go for it. It might look nice, albeit kind of silly, on your resume as well.

Let's hear it for Family Guy's impending return!

The whole premis is to find if the grass is really greener on the other side....so to speak...you switch mom's for a week or so, and get to see just how great your mom really is compaired to this raving bitch you're stuck with! happy.gif And the mom that you get gets to decide how your family will spend $50,000 I believe.....

And yes, Mata you were generally correct,only I've seen "Wife Swap" and it's not as enjoyable...though it's the same show. Very strange....

*hugs Pab* sorry if you were scared there for a bit....it's really not very very bad...my brothers and I just have a strange sense of humor, and we want to see if we could actually get on....and then you'd all get to see the Lorax on TV for two hours!

Oh did I mention, she could or could not give me money? And if she did I'd have to spend it on what she says it's for. I doubt it'll say:

Spend it so you can meet Vic and have the biggest Mata-meet ever so all of you and the forumites can get together and have a crazy shindig.

One can only hope.....
