The Set-Up: Single Volunteers Wanted
Be a part of our CBC reality dating podcast pilot!
Yes, we’re making a reality dating show for the public radio set – and we need your help. If you’re in Toronto and willing to strap on a mic and go out on a blind date or two, just email email@example.com by Monday, April 23rd, 2012.
Right now we’re looking for single men and women interested in dating opposite-sex partners for our smell-based matchmaking experiment (science!). We think it’ll be a lot of fun – here’s how it’ll work:
Guys who choose to participate will be asked to wear a t-shirt to bed (alone) two nights in a row. Four other guys will do the same. Our keen-sensed female participant will give each of the shirts a whiff, and rank her choices. We’ll send her out on dates with two of the five guys, and record audio of the whole thing. So at worst you wear/smell a shirt and do a super-quick interview – and at best we’ll pay for you to go on a date or two, interview you before and after, and find you true forever love.
Our show is upbeat and lighthearted, and we’ll always try to make our guests sound good. We’re only taping audio, but we’ll also want to get a quick photo of you for the website.
Wanna give it a shot? Just email us at the address above by Monday, April 23rd, 2012 (i.e. NOW) – we really appreciate your help! This first experiment is for our pilot episode, but we hope to do more matchmaking experiments in the future, which will also feature same-sex lovin’ peoples. So even if you don’t qualify for this one, throw your name in the hat now and we’ll let you know when/if we get to that stage.
