If your goal isn’t to leverage 15 mins of fame into becoming an internet persona/social media influencer, I wouldn’t think it should affect your employment beyond the amount of time you would need to take off for filming.

Just be careful since you never know how the producers are going to spin a story. If you’re painted in a bad light for any reason and your employer finds out, they might be concerned about how that reflects on the company for clients who know you.

For context, a club I was in filmed a pilot for a major network reality series in college that didn’t get picked up (thank god). It seemed innocent enough at the time. But we got to watch the pilot much later and I would have been mortified if it turned into something real. The editing can be… yikes. That said, I’ve seen MAFS and it’s not as salacious as some can be. Just keep your wits about you! Curious to hear what you decide.

If you make it on the show please update us! Good luck OP!

You only live once and work shouldn’t be your determining factor. Chase your dreams and do the things in life you want to, don’t be afraid to take a risk. Work will fall into place as it should. Worst case you have solid background and shouldn’t have a problem getting another job elsewhere. Go get it!
