Just cut-and-pasted this from an email I got this morning. This person is a friend of a friend, so if you were thinking about it - please for the love of God don't tell her you know me, it will not improve your chances whatsoever:
Hi everyone -
Sorry for the group message. I'm currently working on a program titled "What Not To Wear" in its second series for the TLC Channel (part of Discovery). BBC NY is producing the series and the series itself is based on a popular BBC2 original in the UK.
We are currently looking for a NY male/female professional (would love to find an Asian / Latin ) bad dresser. "What Not To Wear" is a comedic, fashion make-over show and we are looking for energetic, outgoing folks who are not aware that they dress horribly. (Seeking clever, intelligent, quick witted individuals who'll let the stylist know they can stand their own ground - on TV)
They would be secretly nominated and we would follow them to document their everyday wear for 2 weeks. The bad dresser would receive $5,0000.00 to shop for a whole new wardrobe and the show's content is following this complete process. Below is the web link and the application rules.
If you know of anyone who fits the bill - please let me know- send me a jpeg or give me a ring.
Hope you are all well, enjoying your summer, and again pardon the mass email... and if you do want to nominate someone - please keep it a secret - thanks.

1. The show includes secret filming of the candidate initially, so for purposes of production and surprise, you must not tell the person you are nominating them. This is very important and nominators must abide by this rule.
2. Nominees can be male or female.
3. A selection of photos of the person you're nominating must be sent via email to email@example.com in order for your application to be considered.
