UFC is holding a casting call to find their next four Octagon girls. The producers of The Ultimate Fighter are holding open auditions for girls in the Southern California area. Models selected to do a screening will receive a $500 non-union wage. If selected from those who screened, they will receive an Octagon Girl contract as well as a fee for appearing on the new show.
The show will consist of traveling to different parts of the world in association with UFC. It will focus on the lives of the girls on the road as well as their road back home to Southern California.
Among the requirements for those auditioning is that they must live in Southern California and have never appeared in a pornographic film.
It’s another reality TV show, albeit with the appeal of a built-in audience; UFC fans. But is that really the case? I’m not convinced this is an idea that can turn a profit for the UFC. Men are unlikely to watch a UFC television show that isn’t actually about the fighters. And it seems like such a desperate attempt to pander to an untapped audience that it will be surprising to see it catch on with women.
Pilgrim Media Group is also holding castings for a show called Zombie House Flippers and for a show about commercial tuna fisherman in the pacific northwest.
They’re a hit machine.
