Lights! Camera! Action!

meetjoefrancis.com - Lights! Camera! Action!Joe took the camera himself in Miami this December to help shoot footage for HDNet’s reality series “Girls Gone Wild Presents: Search for the Hottest Girl in America.” The show is currently in production on its second season, after last year’s 12-episode run became the most popular series on Mark Cuban‘s high-definition TV channel. “Our Search for the Hottest Girl in America generated an enormous response,” Joe says. “Thousands of girls submitted themselves and hundreds of thousands of fans voted for their favorites. This year we’ve launched an even bigger and better search, with more locations, more girls, and more fun for the fans.” Joe met up with the Girls Gone Wild camera crew and magazine staff during an open audition for contestants in Miami. Hundreds of local girls submitted themselves for the contest, out of which over two dozen were invited to the Girls Gone Wild vacation House for test photos. “Miami has some of the most beautiful girls in the world,” Joe says, “So it was a natural location for us to launch our 2011 Search for the Hottest Girl in America.”
