Our US based readers who like the idea of appearing on TV should consider this request from MTV who are keen to do a True Life episode on Fanboys.
Details as follows:
MTV'S TRUE LIFE WANTS TO HEAR YOUR STORY!
Are you a young person who is obsessed with a certain book, comic, or video game? MTV's True Life is looking for young people who are die-hard fans of certain brands, characters, or fantasy series.
Are you obsessed with comic books, anime, fantasy, or manga? Do you like to dress up as your favorite character and attend conventions with other fans? Have you ever waited in line overnight for a book, movie, or videogame release? Do you have tattoos depicting your favorite brand or characters? Have you ever missed work, school, or other important events to engage in role-playing or cosplay? Are you misunderstood by your family or significant other because of it? Do you aspire to author your own graphic novel or comic series despite your parents' disapproval?
If you appear to be between the ages of 16 and 28, and want to share the story of your fantasy obsession, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with all of the details. Be sure to include your name, location, phone number and a photo, if possible.
Tell MTV why you need to be seen and heard. This is your chance to let others see what your life is all about!
