Hilton is using the Internet to cast potential friends for her new reality show, "Paris Hilton's My New BFF." The MTV series will follow 20 contestants as they live together and compete for the chance to be Hilton's permanent plus-one.
Thousands of candidates have posted profiles and videos on ParisBFF.com in hopes of winning a spot on the show. Producers say visitors to the site can vote for their favorites, and the top vote-getters will be added to the cast.
The show is set to go into production next month.
