 more questions:
I know that they start semi final - interviews now ( Nov 5 according to the website), question is what date should I stop expecting a call? January, February, March? I don't want to miss the call if my phone is not with me.... I thought Final calls in LA were done 12 weeks before the start of the race? If that is the case then March or so is when the semi-finals are finished and calls would stop going out yes?

I hope that my team gets called. :) this is the third time I have applied. :)

People have been called even fairly late...so I would think from submission to 2-3 months prior to filming. But that is a GUESS.They did extend the deadline...

:welcome: to RFF! Glad you decided to join in the fun!

Thanks :yess:
My wife thinks its funny that I want to go so bad...LOL I have massive amount of time saved up at work so I'm good there ( even my boss wants me to go :wohoo:) So I'm hopeing that we make it. The First round is simi finals, then finals, then OTS - on the show-, but I heard that the simi finals are local or at least your local TV CBS station ( mine is seattle) then finals is down in LA for a week to two weeks.

People have had call backs 6 hours after submitting or seasons later. No way to tell.

How many others from this forum applies this season? And do you know if we're allowed to post our audition video on-line before the contestants are chosen?

I would NOT do that. I have never known anyone who did be on.

And for the rest...that is secret! :lol3:

I havne't posted it on-line :yess: I guess it's just a sit a wait game now. I always wonder if my video has been watched and what they thought of it. everyone I have shown it to ( stored on my phone) loves it. I just hope that the casting producers love it too.  :)

You're not the only one.  :cmas26 I have been checking my email non stop, looking for that "golden ticket" email.

I rushed my application video with my wife. Looking back at it now, the lighting was horrible and I didn't get all of my points across. I am actually halfway considering trying a new video for the current casting process, with it still being unofficially open. :cmas5

Already planning better for my Season 26 app video!

Winner of TAR 25!...or 26???

I feel like waiting for an email from TAR casting is like looking for a golden ticket on Willy Wonka.

I just wish making it on the race was as easy as buying chocolate bars, for me  :cmas16

One question..

Does any of you have an out of the ordinary job, previously appeared on a tv show or is related to a sports player, musician and/or tv-personality, maybe is an american with a different ethnic ancestry or have a disability?

Don't get me wrong. Hopefully you guys are picked cause that would be the biggest dream of any TAR fan. But it seems the casting people are only interested in people who have any of these pre-requisites..

I get your point. It's frustrating to read about how production contacts/recruits teams like the Ice Girls from this season or hockey players from last season. It seems like every season more and more teams are recruited. This is part of the reason why the ratings are slipping.

As long as I have a chance, I will apply. No matter how small of a chance that is.

I wonder if TAR is going to start loooking at average joes like me .... to many "pro's" or people that the average Joe can't relate to :cmas5. It seems that when they put average joes on TV they get better ratings.. LOL
