Your geekdom could be your ticket into reality TV.

No, we’re not talking about “Beauty and the Geek” (which is cancelled, by the way). Producers of ABC’s “Wife Swap” are looking for families with plenty of personality—as well as their share of high-tech goodies. The producers say they want to cast someone with a smart house.

Now, they weren’t specific on what they want or what they are going to do with it. We’re guessing they want to swap you with someone that doesn’t know how to turn on your home’s lights or TV. One thing they did know: If you’re featured, you’ll get $20,000. If you refer a family that’s used, you’ll get $1,000.
