CBS TV show Survivor is looking for stars.
On Jan. 31, CBS-11 is hosting a casting call in Richardson to help producers identify scrappy talent. Attendees will record a video, saying why they are a good pick to appear on Survivor.
The ideal candidates are "a diverse group of men and women who represent a broad cross-section of American society," says a press release.
The reality TV show will begin airing its 38th season — whoa! — in February. Survivor sends a cast of characters they call "castaways" into an unknown area to see if they can survive. The goal, says the show's website, is to "outwit, outplay and outlast each other" until someone is declared the Sole Survivor. Host Jeff Probst checks in on the castaways, who must learn to find (or kill) food, set up shelter and get water.
The winner gets $1 million. How's that for a reason to play?
Attendees at the casting call on Jan. 31 will not be asked to compete in Survivor-like challenges on site, but a spokeswoman says potential cast members can, reasonably, try to weave those into their videos. Interesting.
Anyone auditioning must be at least 18 years old. Find eligibility details here.
The casing call is Jan. 31 from 3 to 7 p.m. at ISW Menswear, 1621 N. Central Expressway in Richardson.
