Bumping to say that deadlines appear to be a thing of the past right now, casting seems to be ongoing.

Any chance for clarification? Only applications I see are for TAR 16...are they using those for 17 too if it gets picked up? (Doubt they drop the money horse till it stops winning awards if you ask me)

I have some reliable unofficial info that casting is ongoing, but I am not a WRP/CBS casting official. :funny:

As I understand it, they are always looking for good teams, deadlines don't seem so crucial anymore. There has been a fair bit of carry over from season to season as well. Meghan and Cheyne were finalists in TAR 14, Victor and Tammy in TAR 13.

I'm sure that we will eventually see a new application though... The apps have changed very little, the only big thing is the location city for first interviews...

haha I knew the first part of your post but figured if anyone would know that WASN'T a CBS official it'd be you or one of the other big timers around here (couldn't remember my password or email used so I look like a new user but have been lurking for probably 2 years lol)

Think I'll have to consider my application after finals are done here. Finally 21 so I can apply....who cares if I have to graduate a semester later :D

Thanks for the info. Gonna keep a look out though since it seems more and more TAR 17 talk is floating around the past couple days judging off my google alerts.

Does anyone know if you can send in your application via mail, as well as go to the open casting call?
Do you think you have a better chance at getting selected through open call?
Or it all depends on how your tape comes out? (i.e., you clam up at open call, you're screwed)
It's not an interview, so I don't really see the point of open call if you can shoot your own video.

YEs I think so, re mailing and open call.

On a video, you can make it right. Open call you get one shot....

The only advantage would be if production was there...and they are NOT at all calls, supposedly.

Too bad I'm not six years older (or five, with the 'Caite' rule) and an American citizen, because I would for sure apply. (But maybe I would need to marry a celebrity to have any chance to get on, lol :lol: )
1. Don't pick up the phone - You know he's only calling 'cause he's drunk and alone.
2. Don't let him in - You have to kick him out again.
3. Don't be his friend - You know you're gonna wake up in his bed in the morning.
And if you're under him, you ain't gettin' over him. ♥

Thanks for the reply. Can't hurt to try both I guess.
If they deny us at open call, at least our stuff will still be in.

Get the casting call a bit closer to home (NY is nice, but can't make it up there on a weekday), and I'll consider doing it.

(And FYI... The person who would probably be my partner doesn't even live close to me to submit a tape.)

I just missed the deadline for 17 - any word on Season 18 application timeframe?  Is it better to simply apply at any time or for a specific season?

There may be some open casting calls still around...you could try that? I wouldn't wait for Season 18 if there are options. The worst they can do is toss your application away this time.

Actually, knowing Spillman and the casting process, a team with that kind of "hook," provided there's some interpersonal dynamic (i.e., they're not boring), might have a good chance at the finals. Self-promotion, though, usually brings the opposite effect.

Hi folks,
New here.  There was a casting call for "upcoming seasons of TAR that may or may not be produced" in Denver last week.  It also had an address to send applications to the Denver tv station and not to California as in previous casting.  Can you track this down Georgia? I called WRP to find out if it is legit, but I have not had a response.  There is too much info on these applications to be sending them willy nilly to just any place.  Thanks for the help.

I believe we've had a dual citizenship team. The Indian-American married couple on TAR 10 who only lasted for one leg.

The primary need I suspect is that someone must have a U.S. passport.

:welcome2: to RFF, kadilahopper!

Hmmmm....As far as I know, Season 17 casting is complete.

I have never heard that wording before...

Can you explore this further with the TV station?

Otherwise, I need the original link, the contact info, and the station involved.

But I think your request to WRP is the best way to proceed, I would ask them again. I personally would not mail anything that precious to a TV station after the fact. The usual procedure is to hand it over at a casting call directly, I believe.
