How To Be A Reality Show Contestant
Penelope Patsuris, 09.13.04, 6:00 AM ET

NEW YORK - Last weekend, the producers of American Idol saw thousands of hopefuls turn out for a casting call in Las Vegas. That's understandable, since most people assume that a stint on a popular network reality show paves the way to B-list stardom, at the very least.

Not so says Ken Warwick, executive producer of Idol, which airs on News Corp's (nyse: NWS - news - people ) Fox Entertainment Group (nyse: FOX - news - people ) network. "That's a common misconception," he says. "People also think that the top 10 finalists on our show all go on to be stars, but that's not really the case either." Even winning doesn't guarantee the biggest success. Warwick points out that although Reuben Studdard won in season two, it was runner-up Clay Aiken who saw his first album open at number one on the Billboard charts.

To audition for reality shows like The Bachelor, which airs on The Walt Disney Co.'s (nyse: DIS - news - people ) ABC network, or Survivor, which has its season premier on Viacom's (nyse: VIA.b - news - people ) CBS on Sept. 16, people can send in a tape of themselves or to go to the huge casting calls that these shows hold in cities all over the country.

"In some ways the tapes are almost better," says Rob LaPlante, the casting director for The Apprentice, which airs on NBC, a unit of General Electric (nyse: GE - news - people ). "You're more in control of your own audition. Those casting calls can get pretty overwhelming."

Although the odds against the applicants are steep, the public nevertheless perseveres. Ken Warwick's best advice: "Just make sure that you're equipped to do the job at hand, or you will be humiliated."

My roommate and I applied for season 5. We are ex-boyfreinds (of 6 years) that still live together. We were hoping that that would be a good relationship/angle.

We got a call and a 5 minute interview, then "we'll get back to you..." We're still waiting.... There doesn't seem to be any fit 30something male/male teams on the show anymore.

I'm gonna try for Suvivor 11!

Good luck!
