Big Brother Local Casting Call



WLNS TV-6, Lansing, Michigan's CBS affiliate and market news leader, announces that it will be hosting Michigan's only open casting calls for Big Brother 11.

Think you've got what it takes to live in the Big Brother house and win a half million dollars? Apply now to be on BIG BROTHER 11. Big Brother 11 Open Casting Call is Wednesday, April 1st from 5 to 8PM at Eastwood Towne Center, 3003 Preyde Boulevard, Lansing, MI 48912.

Applicants who are interested in trying to be a contestant on Big Brother 11 must be present at the Open Casting Call to be eligible. Eligibility requirements and applications are available at wlns.com. Applicants can bring their own tape to the casting call or have WLNS record one for them at the event. Specific requirements are clearly stated on the application. All applicants who choose to have WLNS record their segment, can purchase a DVD copy for $18 per copy. WLNS will deliver all applicant's tapes and applications to CBS c/o Allison Grodner Productions in the specified format. All applicants must completely fill out the application and must sign the tape log at the event.

Think you might want to show up to watch? Eastwood Towne Center will give away a $250.00 shopping spree to some lucky spectator.

"We are excited to bring this event to Lansing" said Julie Tadgerson, the local CBS Station official. "There are only a few places in the country hosting local casting calls. Lansing currently is the only place in Michigan. We have been receiving phone calls and emails from all over the country regarding the event and that's pretty exciting, considering we have not run a single promotional announcement yet. Somehow the word is getting out that WLNS in Lansing is hosting this casting call. For me personally, if I were eligible (and I am not) to try out for one of those shows it would be the Big Brother! It would the experience of a lifetime to win a half of a million dollars! That would be awesome. Plus, how often do spectators get to win a $250 shopping spree from a cool mall like Eastwood Towne Center?"

Big Brother 11
It's That Time Again!


Big Brother is now entering it's eleventh season and there is great anticipation from the fans.  Many fans have been worried for the past few seasons that Big Brother would soon end it's long run as the best reality TV show of the summer season.  Fear not Big Brother 11 is now casting and will return

Last season Big Brother made a concerted effort to turn away from what had become very extreme and returned to what had made Big Brother a success in seasons one through seven.  Last season may have been the best season ever with the under-rated Dan pairing up with Memphis and making it all the way to the end as the winner.

Most fans will surely agree last season was a season of enjoyable characters, who will ever forget Renny Martyn the eccentric hairdresser from N'Orleans, or Jessie Godderz the self possessed bodybuilder.  The list of great characters seems endless for Big Brother 11, April, Michelle, and Jerry, and the list goes on goes on beyond that.  The comparison to Big Brother 6 is indeed accurate in that both seasons were full of interesting characters with the out come of the show turning on a dime each week.

Never fear, "Big Brother" fanatics! Warmer weather is almost upon us. Big Brother 11 casting calls have begun for every one's favorite summertime guilty pleasure. There have been two casting calls announced so far with more to come:

    * California - March 28, 2009 in Los Angeles, California
    * Michigan - Wed, April 1st from 5 to 8PM at Eastwood Towne Center, 3003 Preyde Blvd. Lansing, MI 48912.

If you feel you are what Big Brother is looking for head on out to one of the auditions, if not get ready to enjoy another season of Big Brother.

 :waves:  Hey all you Big Brother fans who want to apply for the show, Chenbot just told everyone on the Early Show to WAVE YOUR FREAK FLAG when you go to tryout. Don't hold back!  :funny: 




Freak Flag
   
A characteristic, mannerism, or appearance of a person, either subtle or overt, which implies unique, eccentric, creative, adventurous or unconventional thinking.

David Crosby refers to long hair as a freak flag in his song Almost Cut My Hair. "I feel like letting my freak flag fly."

 

Freak Flag    
   
Letting loose, being down with your cool self, especially in front of a group of strangers. Your inner freak, that wants to come out, but often is supressed, from social anxiety.



Freak Flag
   
 Your inner party animal. "Letting your freak flag fly" means acting wild, crazy.


Lord, Keep your arm around my shoulder and your hand over my mouth...AMEN..!!

Hi Blondie! Good to see you! Love your avatar...

Thanks for the update (I think)!

Can't say I particularly like the sounds of this though...what ever happened to regular people playing a strategy game??

Oh yeah...I forgot...this is BB.... :groan:
"Our fans are pretty good. They don't give away too much. Sometimes people love dropping spoilers, but our fans are good. They tend to do it in such a way that doesn't ruin it for fans who don't want to know."--Phil Keoghan

Big Brother 11 Casting on Early Show

Written by Brian Scheffler March 19, 2009 (2 hours ago)

 
Casting for the 11th season of Big Brother was featured on CBS’ The Early Show Thursday morning. Continue reading for the video.

Casting Director Robyn Kass, Mike Boogie (BB7), and Brian Hart (BB11) joined Julie Chen in Los Angeles to talk about casting for BB11. They discussed tips for sending in an audition tape. Robyn suggests to not have any regrets in your audition and to “wave your freak flag.” Mike says “Big Brother looks more fun than it actually is.”

Julie and Robyn encouraged all interested Big Brother hopefuls to fill out an application and submit a video audition.

Julie has been known to throw out general statements about the show that aren't always true. She probably just said 10 with nothing really to back it up.
