Wife Swap Show Looking For More Homeschoolers

Well the viewer response about seeing homeschoolers on the Wife Swap reality TV show must be good as yet again they are looking for homeschooling families to feature on the show. Below is an email I received as I am on an email distribution list for

Hey if you respond to this be sure to mention me so I get the $1000 referral fee.

You will get paid $20,000 if your family appears on the show!


My name is Julia Jenkins and I am a casting producer for ABC's hit reality show 'Wife Swap.'

If you are unfamiliar with the show, Wife Swap is a fascinating story of what happens when two married couples see themselves and their spouses in a whole new light. Time Magazine calls Wife Swap "a riveting examination of family values." The New York Post says, "It should be called 'Life Swap' because it's not just the wives who learn something here. It's the families."

Wife Swap is now looking for families for season three! We are looking for families that are involved in home-schooling. I think it is an amazing dynamic that we can bring to our show. Let's show America about the benefits of home-schooling.

The premise of Wife Swap is simple: for six days, two wives from two different families with very different values exchange husbands, children and lives (but not bedrooms) to discover what it's like to live a different woman's life.

Here at 'Wife Swap,' families not only learn something, but they get to teach a family something about their own lives. We look for a two-parent home with at least one child between the ages of 6 and 17 living at home fulltime.

We are currently casting for our third season, so don't miss out on this amazing experience! Families that appear on the show receive $20,000 as a thank you. And if you refer a family that appears on the show you would receive $1000.

If you have a family and you are interested in applying for the show, or if you know of any great families that you would like to refer, please EMAIL:

Thanks! I look forward to hearing from you!

This makes the blog circulation about every 6 months. No thanks. They even contacted us by phone once. No thanks. My children are too precious to be thrust in the company of a complete stranger. Our family is not for sale at any price.
