Outwit, Outplay, Outlast: “Survivor” Announced Its Latest Casting Calls
As a child, I had an 8 p.m. bedtime.
Except on Thursdays. That’s when “Survivor” aired, and I was allowed to stay up late -- until 9 p.m.
That was something like 16 or 17 years ago, but the reality competition TV show is still going strong (except now on Wednesdays). In fact, it’s one of the longest running reality shows out there.
You could even say it’s outwitting, outlasting and outplaying the ratings.
And it looks like it’s sticking around at least for another season or two. “Survivor” is holding free auditions in Florida and Southern California -- and virtually -- for upcoming seasons.
How to Try Out For “Survivor” and Snag a Shot at $1 Million
Can you see yourself doing this?
Or, if you’re graceful like me, something like this?
Or maybe you’re just a super-fan and want to see what being stuck on an island with a bunch of weirdos is really like…
Either way, if you snag a spot on “Survivor,” you’re in the running to win $1 million in prize money.
Granted, there are a lot of other considerations -- like leaving your job and your family for a while -- but if you’re willing to play, you might get paid.
Two big auditions are coming up this year:
1. Florida Open Casting Call
When? April 9 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Where? Victory Casino Cruises in Cape Canaveral, Florida
2. Southern California Open Casting Call
When? Sept. 8 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Where? Mathis Brothers in Ontario, California
All you need to bring a valid driver’s license. Find all the information at AuditionsFree.com.
If you can’t make it to one of these, online auditions are also being accepted. Just fill out your basic information, write a 70-word bio and upload a photo and three-minute video.
Good luck! And hopefully you’ll never hear the words “the tribe has spoken” directed at you out of Jeff Probst’s mouth.
Your Turn: Do you think you have what it takes to outwit, outplay and outlast for $1 million?
