Amazing Race Applications! Ongoing apps...
« on: July 01, 2011, 02:03:53 PM »
The applications for Amazing Race 20 are now out!!
 
Quote

Casting Website
  The Amazing Race is now casting for season 20!
If you and your teammate think you have what it takes to make it on the show, apply here between JUNE 15 – JULY 15, 2011 for your chance to make it on our upcoming season!

Apparently in an effort to attract a younger, more tech savvy applicant, the application is now ALL ONLINE. It also is more user friendly in that it gives the dates that you are no longer being considered.
 
https://www.theamazingracecasting.com/Home
 
From the site:
 
 Are you ready for an adventure of a lifetime? If so, follow the steps below: 
Step 1 - Make a video (be sure to focus on relationship positives and negatives).
Step 2 - Save self picture, teammate picture and video to your computer, so it is ready when you apply online.
Step 3 - Completely fill out the online application and upload your video and pictures here
Step 4 - We'll email you if we want to move forward in the casting process with you.

Frequently Asked Questions
When will I find out if I make it to the next round of casting?
We will be accepting applications and videos until JULY 15, 2011. We will be holding our casting finals in Los Angeles in August, 2011. If you haven’t heard from us by August 15, 2011, then you are not being considered for this upcoming season. We encourage everyone to keep applying though, so make sure to apply again!
Will I be contacted regardless of whether or not I make it to the next round?
Due to the large amount of submissions, we are unable to contact each person individually.
When do they film this upcoming season?
Filming dates are roughly mid-November through mid-December, 2011. That means that if you make the show, you will be away over Thanksgiving, but will be home by Christmas.
I have applied before, do I need to fill out another application and submit another video?
Yes. After we cast each season, those tapes and applications go into storage and you need to re-apply and re-submit a new video each season.
Can I apply with the same person as I applied with before?
Yes.
Can I apply with a new person, even if I have applied with someone else in the past?
Yes.
Can I apply more than once this season, with several different teammates?
You can, however we advise that you pick the person that would make the best and most interesting teammate. This is a show about relationships, as well as a race around the world, so your teammate should be someone close to you, probably not the co-worker that you have only known for 3 months.
 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 
 
GOOD LUCK TO YOU ALL!! :hearts:

And they've finally gotten rid of the often-ignored ban against re-applying with the same person. And they're making clear that the interesting relationship is the key.

I'm in shock that they've gotten this clear about some of it. I wonder who prompted that?

I love it.  I love it. I love it.  You can apply with the same person.  You can apply online.  Folks,   Tar has arrived in the 21st century.  And following such a wonderful hit  season 18, I am duly impressed.  Good Luck, everybody who applies

"Step 4 - We'll email you if we want to move forward in the casting process with you."

Is this new as well? Ususally I've just heard that calls are made to semi-finalist applicants... (I think.) :duno:

Either way, I love the new changes. I love the FAQ section they've added. I love that they (are at least acting like they) care about the people who are applying! It's all so user-friendly! :hearts:

Now I'm still waiting for the lifting of that American passport restriction... *wishful thinking*

(Come on, the other franchises can deal with various passports and visas, why can't the good old US of A?)
Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!

wow, an application for upcoming TAR 20 is now on the go!  I hope this guy by the name of Tom Stuker who'd recently collected a 10 million miles on his frequent flyer membership & his wife should join this show: http://onlinenewswebsite.com/frequent-flyer-reaches-10-million-miles/108614/

And if so, he'll be becoming more famous just like Rod & Amber of Survivor, the Globetrotters and Jeff & Jordan of Big Brother who'd joined in the race before. :tup:

Hello all.  I am trying to apply and upload my video, but nothing seems to work.  I finally got it under 30 MB but it STILL won't let me submit my application.  Does anyone have any suggestions?  :duno: (:;)

Where are you uploading it and what format is it? I'm sure we can offer some suggestions.

Thanks so much.  I tried to submit it just now.  It went through, but I have a feeling no video was attached, which is disappointing.  It wouldn't accept my QuickTime videos, so I converted to MPG4. But at that point I can't submit my application and/or the blue line doesn't go away.  It's just disappointing.  I'm so bad at this stuff.

Hi Iron Mike,
  I had the same problem.  Everything was fine until the video.  It wouldn't go.  It was too large.  It had to be no larger than 2.9 MB.  My video was 23.8 MB.  I finally converted it to 3kb by email format.  Don't ask me how.  Anyway it went through.  Whether the video was attached is anybody's guess.  I wish you all the luck in the world, hon.  Keep your fingers crossed.  :<)

Ah thanks kadilahopper.  Good luck to you too!  Maybe I'll try to get the video smaller than 3 MB.  Do I use winzip?

If you have a way to convert it to FLV or use Windows Movie Maker and use WMF if that is doable for you. Either one will reduce the file size for you. Hopefully this will help you get your video uploaded.  :tup:

Texas lady you are a trip :<) . :yess:  I didn't understand a word you wrote.  :duno:  I am so computer dyslexic, it ain't funny.  My son and I used our webcam to make our video. We did use Windows Movie Maker and after trying to figure out how to get it from 23 MB to 2.9 I finally saw a tab that said send by email.  Our video went from 23 MB to 3 kb.  I clicked on that and then the application went through.  Whether the video was attached, I have no idea.  Since there was an asterik after every "required" section on the application, I am hoping that the application could not be sent without having ALL required "fields filled out".  Including the video.  But the upside to all this is that I am learning new stuff all the time.  You folks are a fount of information.  Thanks for the help.   :hearts:

Or did they already cast TAR 20? Is that why they renewed it with 19? ??? Makes you wonder what they are planning for that season.

20 casting should be well under way but there are always ongoing tweaks. At least one set of final interviews has already taken place, some/most teams may be locked in.

These days, casting remains much more "ongoing" than in the old days, I think.

Would you think it would be more advantageous to apply now that they are accepting applications or try to plan it for when you think they might start making some calls for interviews?

If they are accepting apps, and you are a compelling team, I don't think it matters when you apply, so much that you DO apply! Good luck!

but I have nothing to do with casting!!

Oh now! CBS decided to have an auditions in Denver?!?!  That would have saved me a lot of time from filling applications out!   :neener:
