Big Brother 14 Casting Event dates and locations:
Continuing in our annual series of Big Brother casting tips I asked former Houseguest Matt Hoffman if he could provide any advice to the next round of applicants. What he sent back was a treasure-trove of insight and guidance that anyone considering applying should review carefully. So read on, Big Brother Hopefuls, and best of luck!
Hello, Big Brother fans! It’s that time of year again – CASTING!…where, for a few of you, dreams will come true, and for the rest of you, you’ll get firsthand confirmation that you’re just not that interesting. As some of you may know, I applied for nearly every season of ‘Big Brother’ since season two before finally getting cast on the show in season 12. This fact, coupled with my proven charm and wit, has caused Big Brother Network to solicit me for an article offering my sage advice to all of you ‘Big Brother 14’ applicants.
If you’re super attractive and have skirted through life on your good looks, this write-up will not be for you. You don’t need my help. Just show up with your chiseled features, flash your dimpled smile, say a few things that aren’t really that funny but people will laugh politely at anyway because you’re so attractive, and the odds lay in your favor. I say with complete and total honesty that the winner of the season that I was on was actually asked to take his shirt off during his casting process. I’ve never worked in casting, so anything I write is pure speculation and educated assumptions through personal experience, however I can safely say that “outstanding personality” is not at the top of the list of casting requirements.
But I am here to help out the freaks and misfits like myself. We may have to work a little bit harder, but us “normal” people can still have our shot! Where card-counting gives you an edge in blackjack without officially guaranteeing you success, consider my advice the card-counting of getting cast on ‘Big Brother’. Follow my lead, and I’m not saying that you will 100% get on the show…but I can safely say that you will overcome the odds while not having to look like a supermodel.
I’ve applied no less than nine times, been to probably about six different semi-finals, and have been all the way through finals twice. So yes – I consider myself as much of an expert in ‘Big Brother’ casting as anyone outside of the “inner circle” can hope to be in their lifetime. That being said, follow these simple rules and you too can have your privacy obliterated for an entire summer.
1. YOU’RE GETTING CAST ON TV…BE A CHARACTER
Yes, ‘Big Brother’ is a reality show. I’d go so far as to say that it’s probably the most “real” of reality shows out there. But it still is a television program and, thus, it still needs “characters”… Continue Reading Part 1 >>
2. MAKE A VIDEO
I’ve never been to an open call, but I’ve heard plenty about them. And none of it really seems to win favor over applying with a video… Continue Reading Part 2 >>
3. KNOW YOU’RE GETTING ON THE SHOW, AND KNOW YOU WILL WIN
The Big Brother 14 casting website is now live! Throw those paper applications in the trash and check out these details on how to apply online for Big Brother.
The application website offers a brief form to complete with these basic instructions:
- Fill out the application form in one sitting
- Make sure you have a RECENT picture of yourself (no hats or sunglasses)
- Make sure you have a video ready to upload that’s less than 3 mins & 30MB
You’ll have to provide easy details like your full name, address, relationship status, and familiarity with Big Brother. You’ll also get to add a short bio and when I say short I mean 70 words or less short. The video clip has to be 3 minutes or less and they even provide some excellent tips on what makes a great video.
If you’re not hip to the Internet or making videos then Big Brother 14 open call casting events will still be held.
