Are you a Grandma with a big heart? Then you might just have what it takes to be GE's "Great American Grandma," who will help demonstrate new GE kitchen appliances for $50,000 a year.
GE published a job posting claiming they're looking for a "big-hearted, age-defying, lives-life-to-the-fullest and brings-out-the-best-in-everyone kind of Grandma."

If you feel that fits the bill, they're also keen on a Grandma who's full of laughs and "believes in tradition but is anything but traditional."
Whatever Grandma GE decides on will work 10-15 hours a month, demonstrating how GE appliances work, for $50,000 a year. On top of that, the lucky grandmother will also receive five new GE kitchen appliances of her own!

To apply, the Grandma or her friends and family must send a video to GE saying why they'd be the ideal "Great American Grandma." Many Grandmas have already posted their auditions online:
