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.

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:

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/ (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: (:;)
Title: Re: Amazing Race Applications! Ongoing apps...
Post by: TexasLady on July 15, 2011, 10:55:09 PM
Where are you uploading it and what format is it? I'm sure we can offer some suggestions.
Title: Re: Amazing Race Applications! Ongoing apps...
Post by: ironmike on July 15, 2011, 11:30:19 PM
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.

Post by: kadilahopper on July 16, 2011, 10:09:36 AM
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.  :<)   
Title: Re: Amazing Race Applications! Ongoing apps...
Post by: ironmike on July 16, 2011, 10:48:25 AM
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.
Title: Re: Amazing Race Applications! Ongoing apps...
Post by: georgiapeach on September 22, 2011, 01:44:56 PM
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.
Title: Re: Amazing Race Applications! Ongoing apps...
Post by: Cheesefeet on September 22, 2011, 02:44:03 PM
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?
Title: Re: Amazing Race Applications! Ongoing apps...
Post by: georgiapeach on September 22, 2011, 03:24:41 PM
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!!

Keyboard is repaired and I'm back in business!

November 30th doesn't sound like a plausible deadline for TAR 20; I'm suspecting this is a start towards TAR 21 in the fall of 2012.

There's an open casting call at Bernie and Phyl's in Saugus, MA I believe on November 12 (which is a Saturday) from 9AM to noon - I think this might be for TAR21.

Note: Had incorrect date, watched that commercial again with the correct date - and removed the reference to TAR20.

Amazing crowd for ‘Amazing’ tryout in Saugus
Originally Published on Monday, November 14, 2011
By Amber Parcher / The Daily Item
SAUGUS — The crowds and police cars outside a Saugus furniture store this weekend could have confused any casual passerby.

But Bernie & Phyl’s on Route 1 wasn’t giving away free furniture: The store was filled with thousands of would-be actors trying out for a coveted spot for “The Amazing Race,” a popular reality TV show.

For a decade, CBS has sent 11 pairs of travelers in a race across the world for a shot to race through checkpoints, clues and cultures and a chance to win $1 million.

The show came to Saugus on Saturday to find potential New England contestants for the next season.

Local CBS affiliate WBZ-TV and Bernie & Phyl’s Saugus franchise sponsored the casting call, which brought starry-eyed fans from Lynn, Saugus, Boston, New Hampshire and beyond.

Saturday’s casting call was aimed at to find duos that represent the East Coast, said Avry Sandler, sales marketing manager for WBZ-TV.

“We’re looking for people who are genuine, passionate, who have personality and who really have that local flavor,” she said.

New England must be fertile ground for reality TV stars: The Amazing Race held a casting call last year in Tewksbury and Survivor held one in August at Six Flags in Agawam.

Past casting calls in the area drew hundreds of potential contestants, but CBS officials said Saturday’s numbers blew that out of the water, with an unofficial count of 3,000.

The eclectic crowd kept themselves entertained as they waited for hours in a line that snaked around Bernie & Phyl’s several times over. Groups kicked around a soccer ball, partners in homemade “pick me” T-shirts rehearsed their 60-second speeches, and one person outfitted in a head-to-toe chicken costume danced around.

Lynn residents Jessica and Jenna Barbuzzi weren’t intimidated by some of their more outlandish competition.

They had arrived at Bernie & Phyl’s at 7:50 a.m. to check “trying out for a reality show” off their bucket list.

“We don’t know what will happen when we get in, but we just might have a chance,” Jessica said.

A few dozen people ahead of them, Ken Hanlon of Quincy was blowing his hands to keep warm. He had the same go-lucky attitude.

“Can’t win a lottery if you don’t buy a ticket,” he said, shrugging.

His try-out partner, Brian Baker of Quincy, agreed. But a case of beer would be nice to wait out the line, he admitted.

Kimberly Swanson and Arline Shea of Hudson, N.H., woke up at 5 a.m. to arrive to the casting call in time. For the pair, who had recently lost 75 pounds combined, trying out for such a physical show was a personal victory.

“It was something we couldn’t even fathom to do, and now we can,” Shea said.

Deep in the Saugus franchise of Bernie & Phyl’s, producers manning three makeshift stations with cameras and microphones filed contestants through in 60-second intervals, giving each pair total creativity to share why they should be picked for the show.

Lynne Spillman, the LA-based casting director for The Amazing Race and Survivor, said she looks for contestants that can grow throughout the show.

“It’s a relationship show, so I care a lot about the relationship and where it is now and what it could turn into from doing the race together,” she said in an interview last week.

Sure enough, Shea and Swanson, with their story of health and recovery, received a nod of approval from the mic-ed up producer standing behind them.

As for Lynn’s Barbuzzi sisters, they were a bit disappointed in how their sales pitch turned out.

“We should have practiced more,” Jessica said.

But her little sister Jenna stayed optimistic: “You only get one minute to make a million bucks,” she said.

What the? 3,000 people for the Saugus open casting call, sounds like this series isn't ending anytime soon methinks.

I should note that at least two of the winners (Chris and Alex from TAR2, the Dan & Jordan from TAR16) are from the New England area - I forget if there are any others.

We are now accepting applications for the upcoming season.

THE AMAZING RACE is a seven-time Emmy Award-winning adventure reality series hosted by Emmy-nominated host Phil Keoghan, which pits teams, each comprised of two members, against each other on a trek around the world. At every destination, each team competes in a series of challenges, some mental and some physical, and only when the tasks are completed do they learn of their next location. Teams who are the farthest behind are gradually eliminated as the competition progresses, with the first team to arrive at the final destination winning $2 million.

Actually, the $2 Million thing is a possibility. ;)

Apparently, this season, if the team that wins leg 1 also wins the race, they will be awarded $2 million.

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.

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

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.

Post by: TAR25 on April 19, 2013, 01:25:48 PM
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.
Title: Re: Amazing Race Applications! Ongoing apps...
Post by: georgiapeach on April 19, 2013, 02:48:50 PM
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

Some of these may be wrong. But most I know for fact.

1. All of it, at airports.
2. No
3. If still allowed, probably after the Pit Start.
4. If you see other teams doing it.
5. Never your own, occasionally teams have borrowed a local's iPhone or Blackberry to search directions.
6. Go to customs, baggage claim, etc.
7. Probably find out time difference from flight attendants or airport staff, and they set their watch
8. I'm guessing youre on your own with packing, there could be a brief list though
9. No
10. No clue, I'm guessing an hour.
11. Not sure.
12. Probably.
13. Possibly.

These are really questions that I would like to hear answered from former racers. But, from what I read on here, most of you guys know more than people that have raced.

1. So you would always exchange all money at every pitstop? I know I see teams all the time with both local and US currency. ie. Season 19 when they donate all money to the orphanage.

2. Bottled water - provided or not?
12. Does production tell you when/where to leave your bags during roadblocks & detour?

In the recent season (22), during the Africa leg when they are driving around in their SUVs, you can see a case of bottled water in the trunk of the car. I think water bottles are provided depending on the situation, and almost definitely at detours/road blocks (just from the amount of water bottles I've seen there, including teams dumping water bottles on their teammates in hot weather road blocks).

I've seen a couple times a sign that said "Leave bags here", memorably at a water park challenge where the bowling moms I believe left their bag behind and had to go back to retrieve it.

Wow! Thanks! I didn't notice/remember either one of those. You are very observant!

I do seem to remember a season where it looked like teams had coolers in the back of their SUVs. Couldn't tell for sure. But they were big white boxes that resembled coolers.

Post by: georgiapeach on April 30, 2013, 09:11:26 PM
They did have coolers. Those were production's, they were not allowed to have any.

Water...usually NOT...but sometimes yes.

Packing, you are mostly on your own, although there are some guidelines re logos, etc.

Makes sense that the coolers were for production.

I have a few ideas on what to pack, but logos is one of my main concerns. I remember Boston Rob wearing his hat in S7 and one of the border patrol guys wore an Arizona Nike hat. I guess it just depends as far as how much you can get away with.

8. What to pack........ cold weather clothes, sleeping bag, stuff for taking showers,....?

Production provides extreme weather gear for a designated task, like ice climbing, sleeping atop an ice field, riding snowmobiles, etc.  Still, teams are expected to bring windbreakers/fleece/rainjackets/ponchos for just ordinary cold.  Some teams bring sleeping bags (more so in earlier seasons), some bring blankets and/or sleeping pads, some bring space blankets, and others just rough it by wearing multiple layers.  At the other end of the spectrum, be prepared to wear production-provided speedos, lycra, etc for specific tasks in the water, on ice rinks, on stage, etc.

Title: Re: Amazing Race Applications! Ongoing apps...
Post by: theschnauzers on October 16, 2013, 01:11:08 PM
Actially, the casting process runs several months ahead of filming. You have to work backwards, but the spring cycle normally premieres during the month of February in order to finish in early May (both during traditional ratings "sweep" periods) and filming normally is completed at or before Christmas at the latest. Filming, therefore, has to start normally sometimes in November or earlier if the producers want to get to certain areas of the world before northern winter/ southern summer.
You can work out the same scenario for the fall cycle, once the premiere week used for measuring audience ratings is known.

The deadline has come and gone for applying for Season 25. I applied at the last minute with a different teammate than I originally intended. I don't feel very good about the video I submitted, but you never know. I will be watching for the 26 app just in case.
Title: Re: Amazing Race Applications! Ongoing apps...

It looks like they pushed the deadline back 2 weeks  :yess:

Thursday November 21 is the new application deadline.

Post by: zerorecall on November 11, 2013, 01:15:35 PM
 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. :)
Title: Re: Amazing Race Applications! Ongoing apps...
Post by: georgiapeach on November 11, 2013, 01:27:50 PM
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!

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 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.

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!

As for the email ( I have both my friends and my email going to my phone..LOL he has mine and his going to his too) we opened up Race email accounts just for this. :) We started applying last year TAR 22.

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.

Post by: georgiapeach on April 05, 2014, 05:31:48 PM
Be yourself! Have a good idea what you want them to take home from you, and what you want to say. BUT don't have a pre-"recorded" spiel, be spontaneous. Let them know why you will be good TV, what makes you different? And most of all...have fun!! Good Luck!!

But I would not count on TAR 25. That should be pretty well casted already.

Post by: airn10 on April 05, 2014, 07:47:42 PM
Thanks, Peach.

I am excited to say the least! I am telling myself that there can't be as many people at this call as the videos I have seen from previous calls. I mean, it is Kentucky!

That being said, Mallory is going to be there, so I'm sure she will attract a large crowd.

I kind of figured that 25 was out of the question, but I knew it was still not filming yet. I guess I am just a little crazy about 25  :iok

The website for the local CBS affiliate now says Mika Combs will be there. I'm not sure if Mallory and Mika are both going to be there now, or just Mika.??? Mallory has done several commercials for this event and her pic is on all of the advertisements.

Hi Realityfanforum family,
It has been a long............ time since I have been here.   Alot of life changes.  My mother passed away unexpectedly which should not have happened.  Had a few years of grieving to deal with that.... Two of my sons which you have seen in  my Amazing Grace Race pics have married  two wonderful girls.  and as of February 5th I have finally become a grandmother......her name is....get this....Sadfyre Azura Rain Hubbard.....It fits because she has her daddy's sapphire eyes.  We call her Sadie Rain....lol.   I guess it took Sadfyre to bring me out of my grieving period,  but I am back and ready to catch up with old friends......If someone would please post the website that you send in your applications to, I would be greatly appreciative.   
p.s.  Love reading all the latests posts.....

The original deadline for TAR 25 was November 7th but the filming is to take place sometime in the May to July time frame indicating a fall 2014 air date. I would expect the casting website to update soon for the casting or TAR 26 but they have kept accepting applications so they could already have most the cast for TAR 26. There are also two open casting calls that have been on the casting website for awhile now here is it for people who haven't checked:

Biloxi, MS

FRIDAY, MAY 30
10AM-2PM

I found it. It is Thursday June 19th, 1:30 PM - 8 PM at 2 sites in someplace called Put-In-Bay, Ohio, which appears to be near Toledo or Cleveland. Not Rhode Island or Delaware. One of the sites is on Delaware Ave., which is what tripped me up.

Jodi Wincheski sent out a tweet a couple of hours ago saying she had updated her tips for making audition tapes for TAR and Survivor. I haven't looked at them, but since she's involved with casting for Survivor these days, I'm sure there's lots of good info there.

Tips to Making an Amazing Race Audition Tape
By Jodi Wincheski
https://www.facebook.com/jodi.wincheski/notes (https://www.facebook.com/jodi.wincheski/notes)
June 12, 2014 at 8:19am
Tips to Making an Amazing Race Audition Tape
 
Your audition tape is one of the most important parts of the application process. It’s a way for us to see who you are and your personalities.  It’s like a really awkward first date and you’re trying to impress us to get us to ask you out on a second date. So don’t be boring!
 
-          First, understand what show you’re applying to. Actually, watch a couple episodes! Tailor your audition tape to that show. As much as The Amazing Race is about travel and adventure, the core of the show is about relationships. It’s the relationship between the partners that’s the most fascinating element of the show.
 
-          Be yourself!  The best audition tapes are videos where we get to know who you are. It’s not about putting together the best skit or wearing the wackiest costumes. We’re looking for real people and we want to know the real you. We don’t want to hear scripted and rehearsed lines. You are NOT an actor!  You can be as creative as you want and definitely have fun, but don’t let a scripted skit dominate your entire audition tape. It’s incredibly difficult to know who you are when you’re being a fake character or doing random accents.
 
-          This is NOT a job interview so have fun with your video. Imagine you’re in a bar drinking beer with your friends.  Bring that level of energy and personality. Remember, you’re trying to get us to go on a second date with you!
 
-          Be creative! Unless you have an amazing personality, just sitting on a couch in a dimly lit room and talking to a camera is probably not going to help you. Think about the show you’re applying to and craft your video to relate to the show.
 
-          Sometimes showing us something on video is more interesting than just telling us. For example, it’s one thing to say you can make a fire, it’s more believable and impressive if you actually build one on tape.
 
-          Don’t read cue card. We can tell you’re reading something and you are not really impressing us with your reading ability.
 
-          Definitely ask your friends and family to help you out with the video. Actually, have someone hold a camera and shoot your video for you.  We always get people shooting with a tripods and the framing is always off.  If you’re not technically inclined, ask your nerdiest friends and family to help you edit your audition tape.
 
-          We understand that not everyone is a video editor. So don’t stress about editing or trying too hard to impress us with your editing skills. Sadly, there’s no Emmy for Best Editing in a Reality Show Audition Tape. Sometimes simple and to the point works.
So what stuff should you talk about in your video? Obviously, you don’t have to include every topic below but this should give you an idea of what are good topics to discuss in your video. Just remember everything you talk about should some how show us your personality or relate directly to the show.
 
-          Talk about the show.  For example, why do you want to be on the show? Are you diehard fans of the show since season one or are you new fans? What’s so amazing about the show that you’re going to get off your couch and apply for the show? What challenges excite you? Who are your favorite contestants?
 
-          Talk about your relationship.  The most important part of your video is you talking about your relationship with your partner. Define the relationship. For example, what are the strengths and weaknesses of your relationship? Is your relationship totally dysfunctional or are you a solid team? Are you working through relationship issues? Are there things you want to prove to your partner? How will the show help/harm your relationship?
 
-          Does your team share a common characteristic? Some teams have interesting common traits like a job, lifestyle, hometowns, or personalities. Are you cowboy brothers from Wyoming, dating Goths, stockbrokers from Wall Street, married blueberry farmers from New England? Shoot any footage that can illustrate this bond. For example, cowboys riding horses, Goths dancing in a club, and the blueberry farmers working the farm on a tractor.
 
-          Do you come from a unique region or state? Talk about where you’re from and how it’s a part of your personality. For example, are you from The South where you know how to use “Southern Charm” to get what you want? Are you proud to be from Boston and you have a wicked Boston accent to prove it? Did you grow up on a Texas cattle ranch and you know what hard work really is? Or maybe you grew up in a hippie commune in San Francisco? Did you grow up in a small town in the Midwest or did you grow up on the streets of Los Angeles? If you can, shoot footage of where you’re from so we can see you in your everyday environment. For example, a farmers on the farm with the chickens and the pigs, the New York City stockbrokers in a suit on Wall Street, or the Alaskans on a dog sled. 
 
-          Talk about your job and how your job skills may help you on the show.  For example, a bartender uses his people skills to convince people to leave tips, a lawyer knows how to argue a point, an Army sergeant knows how to lead a group, and a college athlete will do well in any physical challenges. If you have an interesting job, show us footage of yourself at work and what you do on a daily basis.  If you wear a unique uniform or outfit for work, you may want to also include footage of yourself in your uniform. For example, firemen in their uniforms next to a fire truck, doctors in scrubs in an operating room, or the donut shop owners selling donuts.
 
-          Have you overcome any challenges or obstacles in your life? Sometimes it becomes a cliché on a reality show but these life changing events shape who we are and our personalities.  For example, have you won a battle with a cancer or watch someone you love die? Did your parents divorce when you were a kid or did watch your mother struggle as a single parent? Have you beaten drug addiction? Did you overcome a learning disability or were you the first person in your family to graduate college? What life experiences will help you compete on the show?
 
-          Talk about your family. If you’re married or have kids, you may want to show us footage of your family. Everyone always loves seeing parents with their kids. What do your kids mean to you? Were you a single father, a teenage parent, or do your kids just drive you up the wall?
 
-          Talk about the skills you’re going to bring on the show.  For example, do you have navigation skills and can read a map? Are you well travelled? Can you flirt with people to persuade them to help you? What skills are you bring to the show that will help your team?
 
-          How athletic are you? The Amazing Race is a physical show and to do well, you have to have some sort of athletic ability. For example, did you play any sports in high school or college? Do those sports relate to any of the challenges on The Amazing Race? Even if you’re not an athlete, do you work out? Do you lift weights, go to yoga classes, or jog around the block? Do you enjoy outdoor activities like hiking, swimming, or rock climbing? Does your job require you to be physical everyday? For instance, a delivery truck driver lifts heavy boxes, a waitress is on her feet the entire day, and a farmer does a lot of manual labor around the farm. Shoot some footage showing how athletic you are.
 
-          Do you think you can win the show? What are you going to do to make sure your team is the winner? How hard are you going to fight to win? What are you going to do with the prize money? Convince us why we need to put you on the show.
 
 Lighting Tips
 
-          If shooting indoors, make sure to shoot in a well lit room with lights in front of you to light your face.
 
-          Avoid shooting in front of a window with bright sunlight streaming in, this will cause silhouetting
 
-          When shooting outdoors, avoid shooting with the sun directly behind you, this will also cause silhouetting.
 
-          Shoot during the day so we can see you instead of trying to see you in the dark.
 
 
Audio Tips
 
-          Speak loudly and clearly
 
-          Find a relatively quiet area to shoot your video so ambient noises won’t distract from what you’re saying.
 
-          If shooting indoors, avoid shooting in loud and crowded rooms where your voice will be drowned out by other people.
 
-          If shooting outdoors, avoid shooting in loud areas and when it’s windy.  The wind will distort the microphone.
 
 
Music Tips
 
-          Feel free to creatively use music throughout your video.  However, we want to
      both see you and hear you so avoid using music underneath the parts where     
      you’re talking about yourself.
 
 
Camera Tips
 
-          Your video will be shown on a TV.  Please shoot your video like you would see it on a TV.  Please shoot landscape (horizontal) and not portrait (vertical) style.
 
                   Good video: Landscape                                   Bad Video: Portrait
 
 
Guide to Sending Audition Videos Over the Internet
 
 
STEP 1 – EXPORT YOUR MOVIE
Your first step is to export your edited movie out of your editing software. Look for a button or menu item that usually says “Export Movie” or “Save Movie.”  If you’re unable to locate this, please refer to your editing software’s manual or the application’s Help menu item.
 
 
STEP 2 – COMPRESS YOUR MOVIE
Once you select “Export Movie” or “Save Movie,” most editing applications will give you compression options.  Compression makes your video’s file size smaller so that it’s easier to upload and send your files over the Internet.  If you have compression options, follow the guideline below. If you’re an Advanced user, feel free to experiment with the compression options to improve your video’s quality.
 
 
COMPRESSION GUIDELINES
 
CODECS
A codec is the format in which your video will be encoded. Different codecs have different features and varying quality. For best results, we recommend using H.264 (sometimes referred to as MP4) for the video codec and AAC (short for Advanced Audio Codec) for the audio codec. If you're on a Windows machine, WMV3 is a good choice for video codec.
 
FRAME RATE AND KEYFRAMES
If there is an option that says "current," it is best to just go with that. Otherwise, use 30 fps (frames per second).  If there is an option for keyframes, use “current” or 30.
 
DATA RATE
This setting controls both the visual quality of the video and how big the file will be. In most video editors, this is done in terms of kilobits per second (kbits/sec or kbps). Use 2000 kbits/sec for standard definition 4:3 video (non-widescreen video), 3000 kbits/sec for widescreen video, or 5000 kbits/sec for HD footage. Feel free to experiment to get the best video quality while at the same time keeping an eye out for file size.
 
RESOLUTION
640x480 for standard definition 4:3 video (non-widescreen), 853x480 for widescreen, or 1280x720 for high definition. If you have the option to control the pixel aspect ratio (not display aspect ratio) make sure it's set to "1:1" or "1.00", also sometimes called "square pixels."
 
 
 
AUDIO SETTINGS
Choose AAC for the audio codec. You'll want to set the bit rate to 320 kbps and the sample rate to 44.100 kHz.
 
ACCEPTABLE VIDEO FORMATS
avi, mov, mp4, mpeg, mpg, wmv, m4v
 
 
STEP 3 – NAME YOUR MOVIE
We handle a lot of audition videos so it’s important that you clearly label your audition video with your full name.
 
 
STEP 4 – TEST YOUR MOVIE
Once you’ve made your movie, locate the video file and try playing the video.  Make you can both see and hear the video.
 
 
STEP 5 – UPLOAD YOUR  MOVIE
Now it’s time to upload your movie!
 
*** DO NOT UPLOAD TO YOUTUBE ***
 
There are many different file sharing websites that you can use.  One of the best sites we’ve found so far is WeTransfer. You can upload files up to 2GB. That’s plenty of enough space for your video.
 
WeTransfer
https://www.wetransfer.com (https://www.wetransfer.com)
 
Visit one of these sites. Click “Choose File” or “Browse” and navigate to your video file’s location.  Fill out the Recipient’s Email box with the email address of your Casting Associate and also your email address. Then click “Upload File” or “Send It.”  Depending on your internet connection and the size of your file, it may take several minutes or even hours.  Just leave the website open and allow it to completely upload your video.
 
 
CONGRATULATIONS!
You’ve just sent your audition video over the Internet! Good luck!

Hi guys! I've been following RFF for a while, but have a question so I finally made an account.
I just submitted my application for season 26, and I had previously applied for season 25. When I finished submitting this time, it said, "We already have your application on file from [my email address]." Has anyone else had this happen? I also didn't get a confirmation email like I did last season after submitting. I just want to make sure that my app went through!
Thanks!

Yeah I did that too, my logic went like this:
If they have our email in there database
 A : our "re-apply" does a check to see if we are there, if it is it either updates the information and video
 B: or it dumps it "saying you already are there.

If the email address is not there it adds the application and video and sends a reply

Either way it is now in a database that is searchable:
A: they can do blind searchs for "labeled people" IE "NFL, Sports, Modeling ETC" based on key words meaning there may be no-one at all looking at our hard work with our video.
B:they still look at every video that is "queued up"

Post by: Cheesefeet on July 21, 2014, 05:35:48 PM
Jodi Wincheski is very actively looking for a dating couple for a "travel adventure reality show" aka the amazing race. You can't be married or engaged. She has posted a couple things to contact her if that is you. I figure it is okay to put a Facebook post on here where she is soliciting people to contact her. It specifically says though you can't be married or engaged and that is the only relationship she is looking for. She says if you are a guy you is a mountaineer or outdoorsy and are dating someone to contact her and send her a picture.


Hope this helps. It is annoying you can't already be married so much for being a show about relationships

*flails* If I had a passport and all of that, I'd definitely jump on the chance. (Probably going there on the second weekend - 20th - but probably won't find them worth my life.)

I would have assumed that 26's cast was almost decided (or done with the casting calls) by now.

I was trying to say that I'm certain that I couldn't audition for the show now, then get a passport later if I was selected for the show.

For those of you who don't have an idea of where this is (the gazebo or the fair in general), here (http://www.thebige.com/fair/generalinfo/documents/2014ColorMap8.5x11.pdf)'s a map with the information. If the words are too small for you, it's somewhere on the extreme right of the map. I haven't been to the fair in a few years, so I'm not exactly sure what state building it's in front of.

We are now accepting applications for 2015. This new season will film sometime between May and the end of July 2015

I have a few questions for anyone involved in production/casting (georgia peach?). I am new and have searched but not found much other than links to videos and articles. Those are great, but just looking for a little personal advice.
If you do get cast on the show, what can you tell your boss? I think I could get the time off, but hate to lie to him.
I am part of a married couple. I am a doctor who enjoys pole dancing and triathlons, my husband is a retired army officer,semi-pro poker player and we are both pretty short and fit. We think we are pretty interesting, but when we sit and look at the camera we kind of clam up. We are trying to come up with interesting ways to demonstrate how we relate to one another, in 3 minutes, without being too scripted...

Thanks!

Welcome to RFF, postratton! :bigwelcome

First, let me just say that I am NOT affiliated in any way with CBS, WRP, or casting. (and never have been)

But I am always glad to help in any way I can!

I wouldn't worry to much about your boss, many have had to be asked to sign NDA's.

But your video is crucial...one of the things casting looks for IS people who are comfortable in front of a camera. Because you will be being filmed for 21+ days, there is no time for a learning curve, so you need to be able to communicate well on camera. So doing whatever it takes to get a good video is important!

I'll send you a message, okay?

Thanks GP! I read some of your posts and figured out that you weren't actually affiliated with the show... sorry! Yes I look forward to your message.

There is a new casting call listed on http://www.theamazingracecasting.com/opencastingcalls (http://www.theamazingracecasting.com/opencastingcalls)

It actually seems really cool! There are challenges that you must complete in order to earn a stamp in your passport. You must have all 4 stamps in your passport before you can audition!

December 5th in the Boston area.

Also, on a different note, what does everyone think about emailing Erika Landin versus applying online, and/or doing both?

It just strikes me to be odd that she wants people to email her, instead of just directing them to the online app. ???

Lynne Spillman on casting:

 http://k003.kiwi6.com/hotlink/f7mjc7b2pe/Survivor_Oz_-_Lynne_Spillman_Interview.mp3

via Survivor OZ

When it comes to the person who has been more responsible for putting each player you have ever seen on Survivor, there is nobody else you need to look for than Lynne Spillman. A casting director for close to 20 years, Lynne has been involved in the casting of every single contestant from the show and has seen the show develop from piles of VHS tapes on her desk right through to the modern days of paperless applications. And in a rare interview, Lynne reveals her thoughts on the cast of the new season of Worlds Apart and why they might just be the closest cast ever assembled, and going over details from which player was recruited twice and just how close we are to an all winners season.

 

Lynne is heavily involved in the world of casting for CBS and alongside Survivor she also is the casting director for The Amazing Race. This experience has seen her cast close to 1000 people on reality TV, and her experience is second to none.

In our chat with Lynne, she talks about the cast for the upcoming Worlds Apart, why she gets emotional over the earlier seasons, the process of casting for a ‘twist’, how close season 30 was to being all returning players, which legendary player she fought hard for to be on the show who Mark Burnett didn’t want on initially, why she is the worst person to go anywhere with in public, which season has her favourite cast of all time, whether The Amazing Race or Survivor is harder to cast for, which contestant she recruited twice before his season, which player she wants to return the most, the truth behind Amber returning for All-Stars instead of Elisabeth and giving advice on becoming a casting agent and cross over casting between The Amazing Race and Survivor.

What do you think about the ongoing casting of singles?

We are looking for TEAMS of TWO: all types of relationships, not limited to dating couples only AND SINGLES (ready for the blind date of a lifetime!)     

Are you ready for an adventure of a lifetime? If so, follow the steps below:

If applying as a team:

Step 1 - Make a video (be sure to focus on relationship positives and negatives). We love banter!!

Step 2 - Save an upclose picture of you and your teammate 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.

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

If applying as a single:

Step 1 - Make a video. We love people who show their personality! Make sure to have lots of energy and shoot the video when you are at your best.

Step 2 - Save an upclose picture of yourself to your computer so it is ready when you apply online.

Step 3 - Completely fill out the online application and upload your video and picture.

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

Thank you!

To me I don't like it, for so long they have stressed that you shouldn't apply with someone you have just met because this is a show about "relationships"  I know this season coming up had some blind dates, maybe the producers saw something they liked watching teams who had just met compete, but I don't like it.
Title: Re: Amazing Race Applications! Ongoing apps...
Post by: georgiapeach on February 09, 2015, 01:26:04 PM
I have made my peace with this season. As much as I hated the idea...The cast is awesome and I fully expect that things will be okay in TAR 26 land.

Would I want this again?  Not particularly.

I would MUCH prefer having us focus on existing relationships. There are so many things besides dating couples. I would love to see more families...cousins, inlaws, godparents, the options are endless. We need more age differences, more F/F teams, as well as general top-notch  players.

But we know from the upfronts that CBS brass wanted some changes. Going after singles again is telling us that they clearly like what they see in 26.... so that is good news. Glad to see they have faith in 27. Guess we'll see re the team/no-team makeups.

Love the reality show “Amazing Race?”.




Head down to Mohegan Sun on April 8 from 2 to 6 p.m. where WFSB is hosting a casting call for the popular reality show hosted by Phil Keoghan.

And as an added bonus, former West Hartford residents Natalie Anderson (who won last season’s “Survivor: San Juan del Sur”) and twin sister, Nadiya Anderson, who were also both on the 21st season of “The Amazing Race,” will be featured guests at the casting session.

Great article!

For LINKS: read it here: http://hasbrouck.org/blog/archives/002171.html (http://hasbrouck.org/blog/archives/002171.html)

Update on how to apply for "The Amazing Race"

This column with links:
http://hasbrouck.org/blog/archives/002171.html (http://hasbrouck.org/blog/archives/002171.html)

-----

Nagano (Japan) - Phuket (Thailand)

This season's broadcasts of "The Amazing Race", at least on the San
Francisco TV station I've been watching, have featured repeated
advertisements for auditions next month for contestants on future seasons
of the reality-TV travel show.

If you want to take your own trip around the world, you are better off
working to pay off your debts and pay for your own trip than investing
your time in a long-shot effort to get picked by the producers to be in
the cast of a TV show. As I said after the first episode of "The Amazing
Race" on 5 September 2001, "You don't have to be selected by network
television producers to be able to take a trip around the world."

It's easier than you think to do it on your own. There's detailed advice
about how to get the time and money for a trip around the world in my
book, "The Practical Nomad: How to Travel Around the World". Airline
ticket prices are significantly higher than they were in 2001 when "The
Amazing Race" premiered, but that's only one more reason to take a
longer-duration trip and to combine trips to multiple destinations in a
multi-stop journey rather than taking multiple brief round-trip vacations.

But I realize that some people are travel exhibitionists, and want to show
off their travel skills and have their missteps and arguments with each
other exposed on TV and preserved for posterity. An article I wrote in
2004 in this blog about how to apply for "The Amazing Race" has remained
consistently among the most-visited pages on my Web site for more than a
decade.

So what's happening now with casting for future seasons of "The Amazing
Race"?

You can be picked for the cast of "The Amazing Race" in any of three ways:

1. Film your own application video (or have a friend film it), and upload
it with an online application through the casting Web site at
TheAmazingRaceCasting.com. Don't try to get too fancy with your video
techniques. You are applying for a place in the cast, in front of the
cameras, not for a spot in the production team behind the cameras.
(Applications used to be accepted by mail, but the postal address has been
removed from the application Web site, so it's not clear if that is an
option any longer.)

2. Come to an open "casting call" for "The Amazing Race". These are held
at unpredictable times and places, and aren't advertised in any consistent
manner. Casting calls have been held at outdoor clothing and sporting
goods stores, shopping malls, movie theaters, and ski areas, among other
venues. A professional TV film crew -- typically provided by a local CBS
affiliate TV station -- is set up to film application videos. Presumably,
the TV producers realized early on that some people who looked good on
camera had no skill at video production. The advantage of applying at one
of these casting calls is that you don't have to film your own video. The
disadvantage is that you only get one chance in front of the camera to
film your application video in a single take. If you are thinking of
applying for the cast, and have a chance to go to one of these casting
calls, you should go and observe, even if you plan to film your own video.
It's a unique chance to meet your competitors and see how they present
themselves, to help you figure out how to make yourself stand out from
them.

3. Be invited by one of the members of the TV production team. This
doesn't get talked about much publicly, but since the earliest seasons of
"The Amazing Race", many members of the cast have been invited to apply.
The casting staff for the TV production are constantly on the lookout for
people they think would attract viewers to the TV show. They approach
friends, acquaintances, and total strangers. People have been accosted on
the street, or in a bar, and asked, "Would you be interested in being on
The Amazing Race?" Some of these people had never heard of the TV show
before they were invited to apply. Some have been invited as individuals,
some as couples. "Is there someone you would like to go on the show with?
Can you find a partner for the show? Would you like us to find you a
partner?" Sometimes the TV producers already have one person in mind for
the cast, and are looking for a partner for them. Is this fair? No, but
that doesn't matter. This is a commercial, for-profit television
production. Casting decisions are made on the basis of which cast members,
in which partnerships, the producers believe will maximize viewership and
profits. Nothing else really matters.

Casting for the first few seasons of "The Amazing Race" was advertised one
season at a time, although in practice the producers would routinely hold
on to some applications that were interesting but passed over from one
season, and call applicants back for future seasons.

Now it's official that applications are being accepted year-round, on a
rolling basis, without regard to any particular deadlines for specific
seasons. Apply whenever you are ready, and the producers will call you
back whenever they have a season in which they think you might be a good
fit. That might be right away, or not for several years, or never.

Applications are also now officially being accepted from singles as well
as couples, so you can apply by yourself if you are open to having the TV
producers pick a race partner for you. Half of the teams this season were
matched up by the TV producers. That's actually happened before, and it
looks like it could happen again. You might be introduced to a potential
partner well in advance, or assisted by the producers in finding one
acceptable both to you and to the TV producers. Or -- as was done this
season -- you might be asked to agree to a "blind date" ("We've got a
perfect match for you...") for the month-long race around the world.

There aren't really any "rules" for casting. If the producers really want
you, you may have some room for negotiation about which season would be
most convenient for your schedule, or whether you want a partner picked in
advance or a "blind date" you meet at the starting line.

There's now a dedicated Web site for applications for the cast of "The
Amazing Race" at TheAmazingRaceCasting.com, which includes the online
applications for teams of two people (any relationship) and individuals
applying by themselves.

The casting Web site includes some, but not all, of the open casting
calls, and some of the information including casting call listings is out
of date.

Here in San Francisco, the next open casting call (not listed on the main
casting Web site, as of now) is on Saturday, 18 April 2015, from 9 a.m.-2
p.m. at the Marmot store at 165 Post St. (between Kearny and Grant; take
the Post St. exit from the Montgomery St. BART station) near Union Square.
I'll drop by for at least part of the day to check out the scene and
interview people waiting their turns in front of the camera, so please say
hello if you are there.

The casting call advertisement on the Web site of the local CBS affiliate
also includes a list of casting criteria and suggestions for applicants.
Nothing really surprising, but these aren't on the main casting Web site,
and I haven't seen them spelled out like this before:

Suggested Questions To Answer While Auditioning:

1. Why would you make a great team to win The Amazing Race?

2. What do you hope to improve or change in your current relationship?

3. What issues do you need to work on?

4. How much have you traveled together?

5. What team do you most relate to from the past season?

Contestants will be selected based upon having the following traits:

* Strong-willed

* Outgoing

* Adventurous

* Physically and mentally adept

* Adaptable to new environments

* Interesting lifestyles, backgrounds and personalities.

What if all this sounds too complicated, or too much of a long shot? It's
a lot easier to take your own trip around the world than to get on the
cast of "The Amazing Race". As Scoop Nisker always says on KFOG, "If you
don't like the news, go out and make some of your own."

Over to you, travellers.

Season 28 is still filming, I don't think there's any way they would be planning season 30 ALREADY. And even if they are, I doubt anyone on this forum would know. ??? And SURELY wouldn't share it now.

And just fyi, S30 of Survivor was also planned to be some kind of All-Stars at first, but they ended up changing it and making a regular season. ;)

I would film your video and submit it. Casting is now year round, so who knows? If they loved you they could always help expediate things.  Course, you COULD give yourself an early Xmas present and meet up before Jan.

Season 28 has finished running.

Season 29 will be casting now.

Season 30 is probably "unofficially" approved, what it will be is probably still to be determined.

But the point is that you are no longer tied to casting dates. Get your video in ASAP and someone will review it. What matters if you fit a specific NEED. Like a M/M or an older couple, or whatever. JUST DO IT. :tup:

Thank you Georgiapeach! We are a F/F team and got good feedback on our tape last time we applied. It is helpful to know that there aren't hard deadlines anymore, but we're trying to get together to film sooner. Thanks again for responding to my question!

Hey, Peach (or anyone that knows)! We've finally been able to find time to film and are now wondering how long to make the video. I've seen them come anywhere from a minute to 6 minutes :/

I also hope we haven't missed the deadline for 29  :cmas5

In the "old days" videos were pretty strictly limited to 4 min. I see no instructions now for length...so maybe just use that as your guideline?

Good Luck!

Title: Re: Amazing Race Applications! Ongoing apps...
Post by: Marionete on August 10, 2016, 06:55:59 PM
That's logically impossible.
If they have more seasons in mind, they must start looking for contestants early. The next cast is often finalised before the season on air comes to an end.

So, it looks like it's a meet and greet at a shopping centre with many famous TV stars and you can hand in your TAR apps video (or maybe you have an app there  ???) Sounds cool whatever it is. I'd go!
Title: Re: Amazing Race Applications! Ongoing apps...
Post by: Mandoli on September 26, 2016, 07:43:27 PM
shopping centre

They're doing the auditions at a casino. But why would they have them at the shops of all things? Ballrooms busy on that day? I've been there (live in CT), so I know how not-so-huge the shops are to begin with.

A good set of ballrooms/convention halls aren't too far from there.

Well, S30 WON'T be filmed in Jan 2017...

Wonder when?

Well, if they doing apps now, maybe they will start filming in like August? After S29 and maybe even after TAR Canada 5???
Title: Re: Amazing Race Applications! Ongoing apps...
Post by: Plaidmoon on January 27, 2017, 12:45:14 AM
They may be taking apps for TAR 31 and beyond. If they film this spring, it's late in the cycle to be finding people. They probably already have a good idea who most of the potential participants will be.

This is the casting thread. Please take filming spec to the TAR 30 thread.

As stated multiple times before, there has not been any evidence for a Jan filming at all.

Also you have to remember that open casting calls cannot be counted as actual casting. They are often done solely for location publicity purposes. This one is sponsored by Taiwan and is at the Travel show. It does appear more legitimate than some, but we need further info.

TAR Casting Call - Travel & Leisure Show Santa Clara, CA

Just received these photos from a a local resident I recruited to report on the TAR Casting Call in Santa Clara, CA.

My source tells me that after speaking with a local CBS employee, they claim to have received over 800 reservations for the auditions today.  My source also spoke with a Father/daughter team (Team reservation #2 in the photos).  Apparently, judging from the photos, TAR racer wannabees come in all sizes and flavors.  All age demographics appear to be represented.  Phil, however,  was nowhere to be seen.  :(

My source tells me that the reason for the "Taiwan" on the sign is that they are sponsoring the audition as part of the Travel & Leisure Show.  One should not read anything else into that sign.  }:>

800 applicants, in just 1 casting call. That alone shows the interest in TAR is alive and well. More seasons to come hopefully.  :conf:

Not officially...but we think it will be.

Casting calls are often just for publicity, they do not depend on a current renewal.
