Students are excited for the new app coming to College Station this semester: ChoreWhores. ChoreWhores allows a college student to request a maid any time of the day to clean their house for a small fee. Cleaning services include organizing the house, doing dishes, taking out trash, sweeping, mopping, sanitizing, and any other simple tasks that college students are “too busy to do.”
The maids for ChoreWhores are sourced by the community and anyone can sign up. “I am so excited to take on this part-time job during college,” said Molly Paquan, a freshman Psychology major. “Doing chores are very easy for me and it’s something I will probably have to do for the rest of my life.”
Similar to Uber, the app will feature surge pricing during certain high-volume times such as Saturday and Sunday mornings, Ring Days, and Family Weekend. Sign up for the app is easy, as it only requires a student email, password, and parent’s credit card number.
“This will radically change my performance in school,” said Matthew Kolty, a sophomore supply chain major. “I have wasted so much of my valuable time doing useless chores that my roommates annoy me about, but now I can just outsource everything.” However, when asked about his 5-hour daily average for online gaming, Kolty declined to comment.
The only current roadblock for ChoreWhores is the complaints dealing with the app’s name. “We understand the misogynistic overtones in the name, but we feel it perfectly conveys the purpose of the app,” said ChoreWhores CEO and junior finance major Travis Nalakick. “We’re willing to make that trade off.”
The app will be available just in time for this coming Ring Weekend.
