Do your kids tell you they wish someone else were their mommy? Now you can make that wish come true — at least for a couple of weeks.
Paramount is bringing back “Wife Swap” for another season on its network — and it’s looking for Georgia families.
The reality show ran on ABC from 2004 to 2013, with a celebrity version until 2015. The premise is simple, really. Two families swap wives/mothers for two weeks. The first week, the new mommy has to live by the rules written down by the old mommy. But during the second week, new mommy gets to make the rules and the family is supposed to live the way she does.
Families must have at least one child to qualify for the show, but you don’t have to be a “traditional” nuclear family. LGBTQ+, multigenerational and nontraditional religion followers are welcome, the casting agency’s Facebook page states.
If you think your family would be perfect for “Wife Swap,” completed applications must be received by noon PST on Friday, Jan 17, to be considered. Filming is scheduled to take place April through June. You can apply online here.
You must include a photo of everyone who lives in your house, and are encouraged to include a 2-3 minute video of yourself and your family. Every member should introduce themselves, including age, occupation/grade and where you live. You should also state why you want to be on the show and what you think you can teach another family.
If your family appears on the show, you’ll get $10,000.
Don’t worry childless people — you can cash in, too. Do you know a colorful family who would be good for the show? You can nominate them here. If the family is chosen, you’ll earn $1,000 finder fee.
