Playboy’s sex-on-camera reality show Foursome pays cast $500 for 24 hours

Some people seek out careers in reality TV as a roundabout way to get some action, but thanks to Playboy TV’s hook-up reality show Foursome, cast members can do both–and make $500 without being an actual prostitute.

The show is now casting single people ages 21 to 28 for its fourth season. Cast members get $500 for the 24-hour shoot, which involves two men and two women who pair off and have sex on camera. The casting notice notes that they want crazy people who don’t mind being naked, and in the past those people have included Survivor’s Ozzy and Big Brother’s Braden. Here’s what it says:

“… Are you wild, uninhibited and sexually open??? Do you want to explore your wild side? If you’re SINGLE and between the ages of 21-28 we would love to hear from you.

The show is about 2 hot guys and 2 hot girls spending a 24 hour period in a gorgeous luxury mansion. It is a REALITY show with 4 hot singles looking to explore their wild side……so we are looking for FUN and WILD types who love to have a great time. Since this is a Playboy program, you must be very comfortable with your body and nudity is required…this opportunity is definitely NOT for the shy and timid ;)”

NBC's super-fun December a capella singing competition The Sing-Off is returning, but without its star judge, Ben Folds, and only as a two-hour special. Those are really depressing changes for a series that proved itself to be a super-fun show when it returned last December.
