Casting Call - MTV's The Paper

Extra! Extra! Read all about it! MTV is casting for The Paper, a new reality show that delves into the ins and outs of a high school newspaper. Get more info right here so you can apply to be on the show!

The Paper - MTV's Latest Project

The Paper may not sound as exciting as American Idol or Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County, but trust us, it will be! MTV crews and cameras want to come into your school to get the inside scoop on your high school newspaper. They want to find out what goes on behind the scenes of the newspaper and follow you around as you search for the latest breaking news and battle it out for who and what goes on the front page. MTV also wants to know about the lives of the newspaper staff outside of school, like who you're crushin' on and who's crushin' on you! Being selected for The Paper could launch your future journalism career... or just put you in the spotlight and send you to Hollywood, much like Laguna Beach did for Kristin Cavallari.

The Paper - Calling All Student Reporters

The Paper is accepting applications via video submission, so here's what you need to do. Make a video of a tour of your newspaper office, a typical staff meeting and sit-down interviews with all the staff members and advisors. The sit-down interview includes questions like what grade you're in, what your responsibilities on the newspaper staff are, why you're interested in the news, what your hobbies are, who you're dating and a whole slew of other questions. Take as much time as you need to answer the questions and be yourself cuz MTV wants to know the real you, not someone who's just putting on a show for the cameras.

The Paper - Video Application Details

When making your video, you'll have to use a miniDV, DVD or VHS. Send your video tape, along with a recent copy of your newspaper, to:

MTV Networks

770 Broadway, #10-58D

New York City, New York 10003

Attn: Claresa Mandola

There's no deadline, but they want your video application ASAP - that means now! If you have any questions, just email the producers

  • Think your high school newspaper staff is newsworthy? Then head to MTV’s official site to submit your video application!

Talk it through. Ask them out maybe? don't worry about it. It'll work out. If they like you as much as you them, you have nothing to worry about. :)

How do I stop thinking about this guy in my school? Like seriously it's pissing me off. Every time we're in the same room, I have this uncanny awareness of where he is and what he is doing. He makes me want to watch the door of the two classes we have together whenever he enters or leaves the room, he makes me look forward to Art and Spanish and disappointed when he isn't there despite the fact I don't even talk to him much. He makes butterflies surge in my stomach and my heart pound in my ears, he makes me so nervous when I'm around him and I have to keep myself from making shaky movements. He makes me want to stare, but I don't want people to know that I care. (And great, he just made me rhyme as well).And a series of coincidences have resulted in me having to interact with him in Art. Ex). We had to draw a # out of a hat and review someone else's artwork...guess whose I got? And my teacher randomly gave us new tables-so now he sits right across from me. ...this is driving me insane. What do I do? (And I'm praying to God right now that he doesn't go on Kidzworld-if he does I hope he doesn't put two and two-oh look fantastic I rhymed again. I'm not even trying make this STOP I'm not even writing rationally anymore)

Get to know them better and figure out what you both want? I mean, you both apparently feel the same way, that's half the battle.  I can only assume you both are unsure what to do because you guys are hesitant about making a move and actually forming a relationship. I mean, I get it: relationships are scary; though I've never actually been in one, I know the thought of it can be. You're voluntarily making yourself vulnerable to another human being, you're letting someone in to your life in a way that you've never done before, a way that can leave you hurting or actually make your life better.  Humans fear the unknown and crave familiarity, and a new relationship is definitely new territory.  But just because there's the possibility of getting hurt doesn't mean you shouldn't try. Take that plunge into the unknown, let yourself fall, say Geronimo and dive into that waterfall (see what I did there?)-because you'll never know what could be unless you take a chance.
