Right now a lot of Reality TV shows are getting geared up to cast their new seasons. It is the prime time for hopeful contestants to start applying!
Big Brother recently opened up their online application process (check out the video I did covering the best way to fill out the online application) and other shows are following suit.
There are more Reality TV shows now than ever, which gives you more opportunites to get cast! The unfortunate thing is, even with more opportunities most Reality TV hopefuls will not take a little time out to drastically increase their chances of getting on Reality TV.
You can do something so simple, to improve your chances, yet most will not take the time to do it.
So What Is It?
If you want to be on a Reality TV show, there is one thing you MUST do before you even think of applying. It is something most people never even think to do. Most applicants will throw themselves in the casting process without any sort of planning.
Applying to be on Reality TV is an exciting undertaking, but give yourself a fighting chance to compete in the audition process.
How do you give yourself a fighting chance?
What is the one thing you must do? Build your story.
Why Do You Need A Story?
Have you ever watched a Reality TV show without a story line? Hell no! It would be boring and pointless to watch if there was no storyline to entertain you. When you are on a Reality TV show, you become a character.
Every good character has an intriguing storyline behind them, whether they realize it or not. The most memorable characters have the best story lines. And the casting process is ultimately about selling your story.
The applicants who have the best story lines become the most memorable.
The most memorable applicants actually become the characters on Reality TV. It is really that simple.
I cannot even begin to imagine how many people kill their shot at being on Reality TV because they walk into casting unarmed with their story.
Right about now you might be thinking: “I don’t have a story.”
My answer to you is: everyone has a story. Not everyone takes the time to build AND communicate a compelling story.
Your Story Starts With This
Behind every great character is a great story and behind every great story is one powerful motivating factor. This motivating factor is your ‘why factor.’
Bottom line: Why do you want to be on Reality TV?
There is something burning inside of you that motivates you to want to be on Reality TV. The thing that is burning inside is your personal why-factor.
Essentially, there are five main reasons why someone would want to be on a Reality TV show.
All five reasons are extremely valid, relevant, and motivating. However, one of the five reasons should never be shared at any point in casting, because it will eliminate you immediately from the entire process.
