Twelve celebrities. Twelve fans. Twelve houses. Twelve weeks. One million dollars.
That is the tagline to the most anticipated show of the year, I Want to Marry a Celebrity! It grabs Bella Swan's attention from the first moment she reads it, especially after she reads who the twelve celebrity contestants are: Tyler Crowley, Rosalie Hale, Caius Levine, Alice Brandon, Siobhan Firth, Edward Cullen, Kate Denali, James Hunter, Heidi Wells, Jared Wentz, Chelsea Green, and Felix Gerandy.
Though the legal terms are complicated, the conditions are simple enough:
Only persons aged twenty-one or older will be allowed to participate. If selected, the person will be notified pending an investigation of said person's personal background. If nothing out of the ordinary appears in the background information, the person will be notified. The person will be flown out to live up to twelve weeks at the private residence of the person they have been paired with. A camera crew will follow each couple on certain days of the week. Sunday nights a new episode will air, and voting lines will open as soon as the episode is over. On Monday night, a couple will be eliminated until only one pair remains. Once a couple has been eliminated, the person will have twenty-four hours to pack all personal belongings and return to their own place of residence, depending on flights available; otherwise, accommodation will be given through a hotel. The one million dollars in prize money will go to a charity organization of the winning couple's choice.
Warning: If selected, for the duration of your stay you will live the lifestyle of the rich and the famous. These people sacrifice a lot of their privacy, as you will have to. Depending on your popularity on the show, your daily life may include paparazzi.
As Bella, who is one of Edward Cullen's biggest fans, reads the above on the official website, she comes to a decision. She has nothing to lose, since she has never won anything before in her life. Not the coloring contest in the first grade, a spelling bee in third, and certainly not a radio competition to win tickets to the midnight premiere of Edward Cullen's newest film. Someone else always won. With that in mind, and thinking that it definitely won't be her who gets picked, Bella enters her name in the draw to be on the show. Imagine her surprise when she opens her front door nearly seven weeks later, only to find the host of I Want to Marry a Celebrity! on her doorstep. Besides a camera crew with him, there’s also a limousine and a lawyer with a heap of contracts, including a non-disclosure agreement.
