Pssst! Wanna free cruise from the Travel Channel?

Here's an opportunity to be a reality show that doesn't involve stabbing anybody in the back, screaming, or going to the toilet on camera. The Travel Channel is looking for a South Florida family to take an all-expenses paid cruise to Jamaica and the Cayman Islands in connection with a new show called Great Cruises!

Here's the deal: The producers want two adult siblings with "articulate, attractive and vibrant families." Each one must have at least one child between the ages of 3 and 17, and everybody has to live within driving distance of Fort Lauderdale. The cruise will run from Jan. 23 through Jan. 30, 2009, and everybody will be required to participate in the entire voyage -- no staying in the Caymans to tend your secret bank accounts.

To be selected, you've got to stand on your head naked, eat a bug, and....Wait, that's a Herald job application form I'm reading from. No, for this one, you just send an email to cruisecasting@banyan.com stating in 100 words or less why you should be chosen. (I don't know; maybe they would be impressed by the naked bug-eating stuff. Maybe Naked Bug-Eaters 18 to 34 is an important new Nielsen demographic. The science of television is continuously evolving.) And you have to send along a picture, too.

Most important thing: The deadline is Oct. 29. Get on the case. And remember to send me a postcard.
