Peru woman tapped for reality show

Posted by wlpo on May 17, 2014

    A St. Bede graduate will be introduced nationwide on a new reality show Tuesday night. Peru’s Maggie Toraason, a Chicagoland account executive will join 11 other women on FOX TV’s “I Wanna Marry Harry”.        

    The premise involves an actor resembling Prince Harry who spends time with all 12 women. Presumably, they’ll learn he’s not the real Prince….but, that’s the fun.

    Her aunt and uncle, Paula and John Toraason said Maggie auditioned in Los Angeles and filmed last August in London. The Toraason’s said Maggie is very tight-lipped about what happens, but did say, she was partying tonight with another contestant, Karina Kennedy of Palos Hills.

   We’re working to get an interview with Maggie.  You can see more at Fox.com .
