Hiya!  I was wondering if anyone can confirm or deny a rumour my friend heard...It was said that Final Casting for TAR 23 happened last week in Los Angeles, according to a Producer for the show.  Also, 'said Producer' mentioned a friend that made it to the finals....I am a bit confused because I thought there were confidentiality agreements that had to be signed to keep these rumours from happening?
Thanks and Cheers!!!

 :welcome: to RFF Sunshine!

People do talk, so sometimes info that should remain private...doesn't. But they have confidentiality clauses to try to keep certain info safe!

My guess is that TAR 23 is pretty much locked at this point...but that's just a guess.

TAR Casting for next season?
« Reply #81 on: January 25, 2013, 09:41:05 AM »
Hey!  Does anyone know where they are in the casting process for next season?  They had a whole bunch of open castings throughout the country - I think the last one is in Denver this week.  What about the next round of auditions/interviews?  Have calls been made?  Does anyone know?

I believe that the deadline for submitting an application through the web site was a couple of months ago. The open casting sessions are another method that has been ongoing, but Denver may be the last one. At this point, they are most likely sifting through the applications and contacting the people they are interested in. If you haven't applied by now, then you probably should be thinking ahead to TAR 24.

By the way, there's a sticky topic in this subforum with application information that has more information than I do.

there was an open casting call at bernie and phyll's furniture store in Braintree, Massachusetts in late November/early December. My mom with a friend but they screwed up the file sizing of the video and couldn't send it. Anyways, that was 2 months ago so I'm almost positive that it is closed for S23

Has this been asked before?

Is there a list somewhere that details a pack list of what the racers took with them in their backpacks? My cousin and I are applying for S24.

Good luck! There is something around here somewhere , but NOT from the racers. I think the answer is as little as possible. :lol:

No. Applicants must be 21, by the start of the next Race  to apply.

Have a good look around the CBS site --it has all the answers you need!

It has ALWAYS been 21. A few exceptions have occasionally been made for an applicant TAR wanted. Read the application FAQ's.

The casting website has been updated again with more information about the upcoming round of applications.

Casting for the Summer 2013 race has closed. Online applications for the Fall 2013 race are now being accepted.

The FALL 2013 race will film some time during NOVEMBER 2013 and December 2013. The application deadline for this is APRIL 26th, 2013.

Online applications are accepted year-round via this site, or you can attend one of the listed open calls. You are not required to submit an online application and attend an open call; at least one is required.

Please refer to the open call section periodically for updates to the open call schedule, and to the FAQ section for additional information.




So you have nineteen days to put together your videos and get them submitted.

Great! So, why do they change the date period for the apps? I was going on the end of May from last year. Is it possible to still do an online app and get into the fall season if the app is done and sent by the end of May, or I'm I screwed and have to change my username? My cousin, who I am applying with, is about 800 miles away and I'm seeing him on the 19th.

I would assume that they mean what they say...apps for TAR 23 are due by 4/26.

BUT apps are also accepted year round...so you never know. I would get it in, you really have nothing to lose, you can always reapply.

I have a ton of TAR questions. I am convinced that when my wife an I apply, we will be picked...and win!
So here it goes:

1. When should you exchange currency/ how much currency to exchange?
2. Bottled water - provided or not?
3. When or should you call for a taxi at the end of each leg? Or is there a rule against this now?
4. How often can you tell what the Roadblock is before you read the clue?
5. How often do you rely on cell phones?
6. Tips for international travel or what to do after plane lands?ie customs
7. Time change on watches? Alarm clocks? How does that work during the race with all the time changes?
8. What to pack........ cold weather clothes, sleeping bag, stuff for taking showers,....?
9. iPods and mp3s allowed?
10. How long do the pit stop interviews last?
11. How difficult is it to sleep during pit stops?
12. Does production tell you when/where to leave your bags during roadblocks & detour?
13. Does a map from a detour ever help later in the leg with navigation?

I realize that most of these would only be known by racers or from reading racer interviews. I was also going to DM a few of these questions on twitter to some former racers, but I'll give them a shot here first. Thanks ahead of time
Winner of TAR 25!...or 26???
