Well I thought I had heard it all when it comes to reality TV, but then someone takes it just that extra step!!
A little over a year ago, a guy named Justin Sisely started looking for a group of men and women to participate in a new Australian reality TV show. The idea was that they’d auction off their VIRGINITY to the highest bidder, and the whole thing would be filmed and turned into a TV show. No, I’m not making this up.
One of the “contestants” is a 21-year-old who goes by the name Veronica Peach. She says, quote, “Technically I’m selling my virginity for money. Technically that would be classified as prostitution, but it’s not going to be a regular thing, so in my head I can justify that I’m not going to be a prostitute.”
Originally, the show was supposed to be shot in Australia. But after Justin got a letter from the Australian government informing him that if he filmed it there, he’d be arrested on prostitution charges, he decided to move it to Nevada. According to Justin, the virgins will all be paid $20,000 apiece, plus 90% of their sale price. The rest will go to the unidentified brothel that’s hosting the auction.
