We have watched a number of reality shows on TV but we have no idea how auditions are conducted. Auditions for the Survivor reality show is no exception. This reality show requires that the contestants are competitive, fearless, intelligent, and fit. The competition is stiff but the pot money for the Survivor is one million dollars.
So, how does one join the audition for this show? Of course, the information source is always the website. From the website, you will know the requirements for applicants and you can download the application and print it off.
- The Survivor application form has seventeen pages. Personal information includes describing yourself through three different adjectives. You also have to describe what a perfect day for you is, whether or not you have tattoos and you have to answer if you have been treated for mental illness.
- A videotape of yourself is also required. You must talk about yourself for three minutes and tell the judges why you are a good contestant. For this particular contest, only a VHS tape is allowed.
- Read all the directions on the application. Make a copy of your passport and have a passport size photo taken of yourself. Then mail the whole lot: application, videotape and copy of passport and your picture to the address given for Survivor applicants. Wait for a call.
There are times when a show runs an open casting call.
