New York Goes to Work – Premiering on VH1, Monday, May 4 at 10pm
SANTA MONICA, March 27, 2009 – Admit it. You’ve missed her. Well good news—she’s back! Star of the hit “I Love New York” series, Tiffany “New York” Pollard returns to VH1 and this time she’s ready to…work? That’s right, VH1’s resident reality queen will experience what everyone else in America does—work a real job. She tackled the Hollywood world in “New York Goes to Hollywood,” and now Tiffany is gearing up to tackle America’s working world in “New York Goes to Work,” premiering Monday, May 4 at 10PM.*
After her rollercoaster journey in “New York Goes to Hollywood,” Tiffany found out that the acting world is harsh and landing roles isn’t always so easy. So what is a girl to do? Every actress needs a day job, even the queen of reality. Believe it or not, Tiffany will be trying to find a J-O-B…with your help!
Each week America will choose from a list of three possible job opportunities and vote via their mobile phones by texting which job they would like to see Tiffany try. Will she be a Cal Trans sewer worker, a mortuary beautician, or a fast food employee? It will be up to you. And don’t think it will be easy for Tiffany. She’ll be worked, in all aspects of the job! Why again is she doing this? For the money of course. If she can impress her new employers, she’ll receive a $5,000 bonus each week. But, if she quits, fails, or gets fired, she’ll get absolutely nothing.
Each episode will be available online at VH1.com the day after each on-air premiere. Additional exclusive video content will be available throughout the season on VH1.com and on VH1 Mobile.
