MTV World of Jenks

12/10/2010

MTV is now casting people with unique lives for the second season of “World of Jenks”. Do you have a very unique and interesting life? Maybe Andrew Jenks can come walk a mile in your shoes.

Thanks to you World of Jenks was the highest rated premiere ever on MTV! We are very excited to consider your story for season two!

World of Jenks is a docu-series that captures Andrew Jenks, a documentary film maker, living with a stranger as he actively lives a completely different way of life from his own. He will walk the proverbial mile in someone else’s shoes – whether that someone else is a homeless person or a supermodel or anything in between. Andrew will explore their lives, interact with their family, hang with their friends and generally see the world from your perspective. We want to hear your story. And you never know, Andrew might live in your world next!

Were you born into a lifestyle that would not have been your choice?

Are you risking your own well being on a daily basis?

If you appear to be between the ages of 15-25 please email a brief paragraph that outlines your story to jenkscasting@mtvstaff.com. Remember to include your location, best way to contact you and why Jenks should document what is like to live in your world. We look forward to hearing from you!
