How to: Get On Reality
Have you been watching Survivor,
Big Brother, The Bachelor, etc and dreamt of being on the show yourself? Here are a few steps that will get you noticed and
possibly get you on the show.
If you remember only one thing
from this article remember this: CASTING
DIRECTORS WANT TO SEE YOU!!
They are not interested in seeing you trying to be someone else. They will see right thru your act. BE YOURSELF. Half the
time they themselves don't know what they are looking for until they see the person. Being yourself and UNIQUE, you may be
the ONE they are looking to cast. There would be nothing worse then acting different from yourself and not getting cast when
if you were yourself they would have had you on their show.
Well now that you are yourself
you need to know where to go to be seen by the casting directors. If you live in a big city or you live in a city with a major
university you may be lucky enough for casting directors of shows to hold open casting calls. If so, go to them, these are
your best chance at getting seen. Many local papers will have ads with upcoming open calls if they are going on in your city.
Also college campuses are great places to check out for upcoming casting calls. They usually will place ads in college newspapers
or post flyers on college campuses.
Now if you are not in a city
where they hold these open casting calls you have to find out if the show you want to be on is accepting mail in casting tapes
and applications. Most shows on major networks have websites or 800 numbers where you can find out more information on the
show and casting opportunities. Visit the website of the show and you will find the casting information there. Also most of
the major networks have a casting or contestant information page link on their homepages. Make sure to check these out, they
will quite often have casting information on new shows as well.
There is some information for
you to take and have a better place to start for getting on the reality show of your choice. Hope this helps and if you get
cast on a show let us know. (Reality@GotTheaterProject.com)
