“Porn Star” Reality Competition Searches For World’s “Perfect Sex Worker”

If a guy like Ron Jeremy (who has nothing to do with the show we’re about to tell you about, by the way…) can become one of adult cinema’s most beloved icons, surely breaking into the skin biz can’t be that difficult.

Aspiring adult film stars will go head-to-head — Er…no pun intended — in a proposed new South African reality show that goes on the hunt for the “perfect porn star.” In the aptly-titled Porn Star, contestants will compete — as in, have sex — in public at Sexpo Exhibitions in Durban and Johannesburg, with the public deciding who walks (or hobbles, depending on how stiff the competition is) away with the grand prize. And by grand prize, we’re not talking about a lifetime supply of Trojan condoms. The cast will be duking it out for roles for one man and one woman in Hustler’s final film of 2011, plus some cold, hard — again, no pun intended — cash.

“All different kinds of people entered the show, not the typical kind of people we expected,” says strip club owner Perle van Schalkwyk, who will serve as one of the show’s judges.

Sidebar: Porn Star is a pretty boring title. The Sun suggests XXX Factor, though South Africa’s Next Top Porn Star would also be better. If you’ve got a better, not-too-rude suggestion, tell us in the comments.
