Doritos and MTV Announce Casting Call for Spicy Girls and Sweet Guys for New Reality Dating Series

Spicy-Sweet Pair to Star in Doritos Spicy Sweet Chili Tortilla Chips Commercial

NEW YORK, March 3 -- Are you a spicy girl or a sweet guy? If so, MTV and Doritos brand want to hear from you.

MTV and Doritos are searching for guys and girls who can prove that opposites really do attract for a new short-form reality dating series called "When Spicy Meets Sweet." Beginning today, people 18 years of age or older can go to http://www.snackstrongproductions.com to find out how they can become a Spicy Girl or Sweet Guy. Interested fans will then register and build their own profiles at a specially branded MTV web site, http://spicyandsweet.nextornot.com, where viewers help determine the four Spicy Girls and four Sweet Guys to go on a series of dates that will be chronicled online and on-air.

The Spicy Girl and Sweet Guy contestants are chosen by how much time viewers spend on their profile pages between February 25 and March 16. The semi-finalists will be chronicled in an on-air micro-series premiering on April 18, and the winning couple -- as determined by viewer votes at http://www.snackstrongproductions.com -- will be featured in a national commercial for the new Doritos Spicy Sweet Chili tortilla chips that will air exclusively on MTV and MTV2 this summer.

Additional details about the promotion, including the official rules, are now available at http://www.snackstrongproductions.com.

SpicyandSweet.NextorNot.com taps into the existing NextorNot.com community, one of MTV's most successful web sites based on the popular dating franchise "NeXt." The community's passionate members have generated a whopping 12 million "NeXts" since the beginning of the year.

Doritos Spicy Sweet Chili chips combine both the opposite tastes of sweet and spicy to create one intense "sweet heat" snack experience. Doritos Spicy Sweet Chili flavor is available now nationally for $3.49 (12.5 oz) and $0.99 (2.6 oz). Inspired by the bold fusion of flavors in Spicy Sweet Chili Doritos, "When Spicy Meets Sweet" explores what happens when spicy girls and sweet guys set out to meet their respective matches.
