Survivor Auditions on the Oregon Coast
Lincoln City, OR – Are you mentally and physically tough? Can you outwit, outplay, and outlast anyone in a competition? Then you have what it takes to be a contestant on the hit reality series, Survivor! Join KOIN 6 News at the open Casting Call for Survivor at Chinook Winds Casino Resort on Sunday, May 17, from 11am to 5pm.
Potential teams, consisting of pairs, are asked to arrive shortly before the 11am start time. Each team auditioning will be given a numbered ticket at the Casting Call. Numbers will be randomly selected throughout the day, and will be announced over the public address system at the casino. If you hear your number, you have one hour to report to the Survivor check-in table. At check-in, team members will receive a full-page Audition Pass and be directed to the casting area. Ten teams will be randomly drawn to audition that day. Each of these lucky teams will have exactly one minute to perform in front of the camera and proclaim why they should be the next contestants on Survivor.
KOIN 6 recommends that each team be memorable during the video auditions. You have exactly one minute to impress CBS Casting producers, so make it count! Keep in mind that this is just step one in the audition process. Videos will be compiled and sent to CBS, who will review them and contact teams to continue in the process.
Those interested in auditioning for Survivor should review the eligibility requirements prior to attending the Casting Call, and each team member must print and sign a Video Release and Waiver form. The forms and eligibility requirements are available online at www.chinookwindscasino.com.
Considered one of the first American reality TV series, Survivor originally aired in May 2000 and is one of the most-watched reality series in the country. In 2007, Survivor was ranked by Time Magazine as one of the 100 greatest TV shows of all time. The series has won seven Emmy awards for Outstanding Reality TV Series. Longtime host and producer Jeff Probst has also won five Emmys for his involvement in the series. The show continues to receive high ratings and praise by introducing new challenges and obstacles each season.
Currently in its 30th season, and set in Nicaragua, the show breaks the mold yet again by dividing the teams into three tribes based on social class: White Collar, Blue Collar, and No Collar. The 30th season premiered on February 25, 2015, and can be watched on KOIN 6, Wednesdays at 8pm.
