  1. My name is Barnabee.i just turned 22 years old and I'm a single white male.i am as blue collar as it gets.i want to show how hard it is for a young single man to make ends meet when living on your own.by the age of 19 I had 3 jobs, two vehicles, a house, and a maid.i also have 3 American Bully show dogs.i want to show how our system is set up for couples to thrive and do well when it comes to money, not singles.working 10+ hours a day, then coming home to clean kennels and work with the dogs, then trying to have time to work on the house and keep it in order.it doesn't leave time for friends and definitely no time to find a relationship.i want to show how being alone all the time and doing nothing but working is very depressing and how it's hard to keep going.sometimes I feel as if it's not worth the success but there is no other option unless I want to be in debt all my life.i feel like I'm working harder than anyone just to get nothing

  2. Hi their MTV my life just like everyone else's might be worse but I'm on the search for my real mother.i was adopted at three and my adopted parents were well not the greatest.

  5. Hello my name is summer I'm 33 yrs old married with three wonderful kids. But live with the hunting past.I was abused as a child and psychology abused. From a very young age I was molested til the age of 14, rape at 15 by unknown man. .after leaving home I got into a real bad relationship I was abused daily. I broke free of that. And met the my husband now. But the fears I have because of my past won't let me stop think bad about
    everyone. I'm overly guarded of my kids and don't trust no one around them. I want to go back to school to help survivors like myself. And also be pubic speaker and I'm getting counseling to help me not be so overly portative of my kids due to the fear of not being there to protect them is heavy. I haven't worked In 9 yrs. And I'm ready to step back out in the working world. And see where it takes me. I gain a lot of control over the last yr and step out of my shell. My doctor and therapist and councillor come to my home due to my anxiety disorder of being in Crowded places. But I'm make transition to change that and make the steps into to doctors Office. My long road to recovery
    And self Independence. I hope y'all will take this journey with me and let me share my story with viewers. And speak of my struggles and how I will overcome it all. Thank you

    And I'm taking down my walls one brick at a time.
    Thank you summer

  6. I am 24 years old, and suffer from a chronic, painful disease called Endometriosis. 1 in 10 women have this condition, though it is not well researched or treated. I believe that through showing my struggles, and with my upcoming 2nd surgery, that it can shed some light on a serious issue that needs to be addressed in the health care system.

  7. I am currently a surrogate mom who is pregnant with triplets. Triplets were not planned but that's what ended up happening. I am faced with the decision to selectively reduce the pregnancy but am having a hard time with that. My family is also unaware of my surrogate pregnancy so another challenge is having to explain my choices to them. I am currently 11 weeks pregnant, working full time and facing the challenges of being the 1st pregnant women in my company. My work is concerned about my ability to continue working which all its doing is stressing me out. Life is complicated right now but I'm hoping for the best.

  8. Good afternoon. I date a stripper and I work in the corporate world. Its a fresh relationship with its ups and downs however it would be great for reality TV.

  9. My name is Kendra. I am 23 and have 4 year old twin boys. I found out I was pregnant a few weeks after my high school graduation and had to go through multiple doctors during my pregnancy because it was discovered that one of my boys had a rare medical condition, OEIS complex. I had to deliver 6 hours away from home and the one baby had to stay there for almost two months while I cared for the other one at home. Sharing my story of what I have had to go through as a young mother with a special needs child, from his multiple surgeries, doctor appointments, wheelchair, therapy, etc. Could benefit others who have children with this rare condition and even spread awareness about the disability.

  10. I'm not an actress, nor am I pretty. Nobody special, just a 55 year old grandma who is caregiver for 3 of my 4 grandchildren while their parents work. I live in a dumpy little house with my husband of 35 years, our youngest son, and our grandson who is here every other week. In 2002 my husband was diagnosed with a rare disease, Retroperitoneal Fibrosis. In 2003 we lost everything to medical bankruptcy and had to start all over. In recent years he became an amputee after developing a blood clot. Once again we are struggling financially due to medical expenses. There is nothing exciting nor fascinating about our lives, but this is what reality is….it's not some partially scripted scenario.

  11. My name is Abigail and I'm a pretty, 18 year old, privileged white girl. My biggest problems used to be having to wait 5 minutes for a table at my country club or the Starbucks barista messing up my complicated drink order. Now, after breaking up with my older boyfriend of over a year, my life has broke out in constant, even entertaining, utter drama. The seemingly sweet guy I dated has turned into a complete psycho path who is out to ruin my life. Between ripping apart my bedroom and trying to turn my family against me, the drama is nonstop, and he is only a fraction of it. My uptight Catholic school aims to find out everything in the social lives of me and my popular group of friends. My parents try to control every aspect of my life and track my phone like it's their job. My friends and I go to extreme lengths to cover up our tracks left at every party and from every underage delinquent thing we do. After only a week from my breakup, I've had 2 boys cry over me..I'm going to college soon and I'm ready to enjoy the single life.

  12. Hello, my name is Ta'Mika and I am 27. I am currently living with a autoimmune disease that controls life. My journey has been a crazy roller coaster ride. After almost losing my life, I am determined to learn to live with my disease but, right now I feel like it's a losing battle. It has also put some strain on my relationship with my boyfriend of 4 years. I believe I have a great story to tell and that I can reach out to many people in the world who have the same struggles. I hope you can help me tell my story.

Im here now its only been a week and his.wifes kids stir up a lot of trouble and I almost end up having to go back to Pittsburgh. Im now trying to find a job but in the mean time im renting show girl costumes and getting tips on the strip for taking pictures.

  17. I would love to audition for this show!!! I am confident I can bring a lot to this show like I could quite a lot other reality shows because I am super unique in many ways I am very funny random sense of humor slight smart ass. I have 17 years modeling years experience…and I love being in front of the camera and center of attention 🙂
    I am 5'7" very curvy big butt and chest very pinup body grey eyes I am Italian. Also I have been a makeup artist for 15 years I love it my heart is there and I am amazing at it. I hold multiple degrees. I would love to meet new people work with a team and be on set and make my dreams come true.
    My true life story would be that I really want to make my dreams come true of becoming a famous makeup artist and reality TV show actress. I feel this could give me exposure and a chance I deserve to get what my true dreams of in my heart have always been

  18. I am in an interracial relationship with my boyfriend for almost 8 years. My parents have never liked him and always thought he was the one behind my bad decisions. I broke up with him almost 2 yrs ago and moved back in with my parents. I got back with him 2 months later and to this day my parents still have no idea that we are even back together. We are talking of getting our own place again and getting married. I don't know how to break the news to my parents. We still have our problems and trust issues and as much as I want to move forward with my life with him I still have trust issues witch is one of the many reasons I haven't told my parents we are back together. So in the next few months I have some major decisions to come up with

  19. I'm homeschooled and 18. If I was on this show, the focus would probably be on how I've loved the freedom homeschooling offers- and that because of said freedom I'm only just finishing tenth grade.

    My daily routine would be hilariously boring onscreen, though, lol.

  20. Hi! I'm Sarah. I married my high school sweetheart, and joined the Navy almost three years ago. We've been together for 6 years married for three. His parents don't like me and never have. We're originally from MI but are living in CA now. He's going to be leaving soon (for the military). I'm not going to lie it's hard. But what's going to make it harder, I'm starting school soon. The school I'm going to is an hour away, so I'm going to live on Campus. We don't have kids, but we do have a cat and dog. It's going to be hard while he's gone, going to school, finding someone to take care of our animals for us, etc.

  21. im olivia i live in a small town in tennessee and recently decided its just not for me im wanting to relocate to california with my husband and daughter. my husband josh is not very excited about the idea of moving but im wanting to see what this world is really all about and try to find a career. i think my story would be great for tv seeing our journey and trials of it all thanks!

  22. I'm not sure where to start. I'll be 30 this year and have been in a relationship with a guy for 10 years and I feel like I'm stuck. We have 2 children who I support as their father has probably worked 3 out of the 10 years we have been together. I do everything for my kids while he just lays around, drinks and plays video games. I think he even ignored one of the kids for the 1st year of his life. Day to day is a struggle as I work sometimes 60 hour weeks as a nurse and pay for kids to go to daycare while their father is just home. I get so fed up and go without speaking to him for weeks at a time. Its no way to live life. I have goals for myself like owning my own home, my car, marriage. None of these things seem possible while hes just here, and he wont leave. I just feel like I wasted my time

  23. I am a SOUTHERN MOM of 3…..I have written 3 books all on Amazon and Barnes and Nobles and I make videos that are to inspire and motivate others…..I am a larger than life personality in the very best of ways….believing that others can become their BEST SELVES….I would love a reality show that inspires others to become their best selves

  24. My name is Rashidah Alia Kendall -Grimes I am a mother of three and wife of an inmate. I work in healthcare but also have my own small business. I'm did a 10 year bid and my husband will be home in 8 months and we are having chaos in our marriage which has alot to do with me because I'm going hard for my career & my marriage is on the rocks after 10 years of marriage not to mention I have another significant other and having trouble deciding if this is a time in my life where I should strive higher or settle for what I step into ? If true life followed me around it would interest the viewers because my life is like a soap opera. Love -Career-Romance

  25. My name is Blue and I'm a 21 year old female. I have struggled with acne half my life. Because of this, I have quit all activities that includes my job, hanging around friends and family, and all the things I use to enjoy. During my senior year of high school I meant the guy of my dreams. We fell in love then later got engaged. After a year, He broke up with me. He has moved on and I cannot. I'm obsessed with texting and calling him. When we were together, he was the only person I hung around. Now that we are apart I feel as though I'm going crazy. My acne holds me back from moving on and meeting new people. I'm afraid my obsession with him may lead to me having a nervous breakdown. I cant't move on!!!!!!!! I'm sure someone out there can relate to the feeling of not being able to move on.

  26. I am 18 years old and a senior in high school. My parents divorced when i was a year old. My mom took custody of me and my two sisters. I didnt grow up with a dad, nor did i have a relatioship with him. When i was 16 years old, my mother died. I became parentless. I started living with my grandma, that didnt work. I moved in with my aunt, that didnt work. i moved in with my sister, that kind of worked. But after that my only option was moving back into my grandmas. I was still a minor so i didnt have a choice to move out on my own yet. That didnt last long tho, when i turned 18 i was out of there. So now as an 18 year old young lady still continuing with high school and trying to figure out plans for my future, i am on my own taking care of myself. As well as trying to fix very broken relationship with family members. I manage to keep my head up and stay out of trouble. I feel through the things iv been threw, i could have gone down a very bad path, but instead i feel iv become a very strong girl and iv became an independent respondible young lady at an early age. I feel I have and am living a much different life then the peers i go to school with.

  30. I would love to tell my story on true life because I feel that there would be many people that could relate. I got pregnant at 16. My child's father and I split up for many reasons when my son was 3. I met someone else and we have now been happily married for 2 years. I am trying to go back to college and work my butt off in a restaurant to pay the bills. I still am young so I do have one night to party on the weekend, which is always
    Interesting. My mother and I do not get along at all. I would just love to show the struggles that young couples have just trying to make it.

  31. My boyfriend and I have been together for 2 and a half years. We are both 19 years old we met at church and try to maintain a Godly lifestyle however life has thrown us many curve balls. We were in a long distance relationship for 8 months my mom and his dad don't support us being together because I was pregnant and we lost our child and after that things got really rocky between us. Although we have been through a lot we fought through it all. Now we are in another tight spot but we still want to be together, we would love to share our story.

  33. I think I'm addicted to salt.Every night I feel horrible and mad at myself and say that the next day I promise to stay away from salt. It is so bad that family members and coworkers hide the salt from me when it is time to eat.Family holidays are the worse because even before tasting my meal I pile it with salt even though I know that this is bad for my health I just cannot control my salt consumption. I need help asap before it is too late.I'm only 25.

  34. I’m 24 and a part time college student and worker at my university. My mother in an RN who supports me, the worst father(my disabled father), my younger brother, my younger brothers girlfriend and their 2 year old daughter. My mother recently lost her job so I am currently the only one working at $8 and hour 20 hours a week. My university cost more money than I can in the end afford, but I need to stay to keep my job to have some money coming in. We fight, move on, struggle and come back. I am obese, have different medical conditions with no insurance and dream of owning my own entertainment arena. If this isn’t the real life I don’t know what is.

  35. I am tall there are a lot of tall people in the world and we are covered in the jock like sterotype. I am not a jock and never will be. The are many out there like me and I want them to express them selves.
