Do you have what it takes?
These days, it’s easier than ever to find your 15 minutes of fame on reality TV. But if on-screen romance and cupcake competitions aren’t your things, we’ve found a show that just might satisfy your salty tastes.
A TV production company is currently seeking volunteers to live for a month in a cottage along the rugged coastline of North Wales. Sound like a dream? There is a catch: You’ll have to live and work as a fisherman…from 1906.
For the show, the company will recreate a traditional fishing village from that time period, with participants wearing fisherman’s garb from the early 20th century and playing house in a simple fisherman’s cottage (something tells us this might not be as cute as it sounds?).
Participants will also be earning a living from the sea by fishing from traditional sailboats, collecting shellfish, foraging for seaweed and herbs, and selling their bounty to local fishmongers. While a knowledge of fishing or sailing isn’t necessary, a “willingness to tackle a challenge is a must,” say the producers.
Think you have what it takes? Apply right here—soon; last call for entries is June 29. But if you prefer your spot on the other side of the television (and the fish counter), we completely understand.
