I know two sets of parents who went on reality tv. They relied on family to have their kids.
I would never go on a reality tv show myself....the comments on social media are ruthless, and you get recognised for a long time afterwards. I wouldn't put myself in that situation.

DP and I joke that we could go on The Block (he's a plasterer, I've got a real estate background), but in reality it would be impossible at this stage. We now live on a farm for starters, which we can't possibly leave for any extended period (bottle feeding calves for example). Plus we both have shared care of our kids and neither of us would want to go long periods without seeing the kids. DP attends literally every sporting game of his kids and wouldn't give that up for anything.

Oh you couldn't pay me enough to go on reality tv! I love watching all the shows, but I'm sure hubby & I would either be painted as the stupid hippie freaks/and or ruthless evil couple. There's always gotta be one.

There's no way I could be away from my family that long, and also I wouldn't want to be on reality TV. It would mean never being able to be taken seriously as a professional again.

I would never want to appear on any of those shows. Reality tv show producers are sharks. My brother got fairly far into the pre- show auditions for the Voice, but wasn't chosen because our family refused to let them use my stepmum's disability as their 'angle'. Everything is staged on those shows- everything. It has very little to do with talent and all about who is the most marketable or who has he best 'story'

If there was a guaranteed pay off at the end, like $100k+ I might. If it meant securing our future I would. But there's no guarantee. It's pot luck. I could spend 12 weeks away from my kids for nothing.

If I had a spare 12 weeks, child free, I'd probably use it to finish renovating my own house.
My sister and I have joked about going on The Amazing Race. I think a trip around the world would be fun.
I would also consider the Great British Sewing Bee. I like sewing and it seems that it is just filmed on weekends. Getting to Britain might be an issue though.
