“Modern reality TV sets up these competitive situations to show us real human nature.” – Alexander Ludwig

Reality TV Shows are becoming even more popular than scripted roles.

They are allowing the average person to fulfill their dream of becoming famous or appearing on television.

Reality TV is creating a unique generation of celebrities who have little or no acting experience. However the participants definitely bring their unique personality to these television shows.

Programs like So You Think You Can Dance, American Idol, and Top Model all require some degree of talent, and contestants have to meet a certain criteria.

However there are other reality tv shows on the market that are also open to working with people who are willing to live their lives in front of cameras set up to capture their every move.

Jersey Shore, Big Brother, The Kardashians, and Teenage Mom are all reality tv shows that have created household names based on the real life experiences of the cast.

The great thing about reality shows is that the production company is always in need of  new participants. They don’t have to recruit actors through talent agencies but want to find people with engaging personalities. This is your opportunity to be yourself at the audition.

If you want to be on a reality tv show there are a few guidelines you need to be aware of before going to the audition.

Plan to attend at least two auditions for the show you want to appear on. Research the casting call dates, and go the the ones that are close to your area. This gives the judges or casting directors a second chance to see your true personality if your first audition didn’t go as well as you hoped.

Take some time to learn as much as you can about the people who were cast members on previous shows. Get familiar with the different types of personalities to see if there are any similarities to your own.

Reality tv shows cast people who are engaging, and interesting to watch on a weekly basis. It’s important to be confident, and bring your true self to the casting call. Without exaggerating your true character show the real person are during your audition.

Although you may be a cool, calm, collected individual in your daily life, be prepared to  encounter other personalities on the show that may bring out the worst in you when you get on reality TV.

Before going to the casting call, make peace with the fact that you may not be seen in the same light that you’re viewed in by family, and friends.

Millions of people around the world will scrutinize your life on a weekly basis if you’re selected so be ready to lose your privacy when you’re a cast member on a reality tv show.

Ensure you read all of the rules, and submit all of the required information to avoid having your submission rejected. Practice answering the types of questions you see contestants being asked during auditions.

Learn your song or dance routine to give your best performance if it’s a requirement of the show you’re auditioning for.

If you are asked to submit a video of yourself, make a few copies then choose the best one that highlights your strengths, and also your weaknesses for the submission.

Keep your video as professional as you possibly can because the judges will select the best candidates from the submissions they receive. Don’t be boring. Do your best to make sure your personality, and the information you share about yourself is authentic. Let your real personality take center stage not the fake version of who you truly are.

New shows are being created regularly, and it’s becoming a lot easier for anyone with the ability to allow strangers to take a look into their lives to get on a Reality TV Show.
