Becoming a Reality Show Star

Do you watch your favorite reality TV shows and wish you could be a contestant? With all the reality shows on television, getting your fifteen seconds of fame has never been easier. There are tons of new reality shows popping up every year. So your best bet is to do your research. Find out about new shows and what the requirements are to apply (for example: age restriction, country, testing involved, etc). Keep in mind that the more popular the show, the stiffer the competition.

Talent Shows

For reality shows like American Idol, So You Think You Can Dance, and America’s Next Top Model, you have to check online for audition dates in your area. Each show puts you through several auditions before qualifying you for TV. America’s Next Top Model requires you to fill out a registration form, as well as meet a whole list of requirements. Check their website, or the website of your favorite reality show, for specific details.

Bring the Heat

With literally thousands of contestants trying out for the same show as you, you have to set yourself apart. Be different. Be noticeable. But most importantly, be yourself. Wait, huh? Does that seem like an oxymoron? It’s important not to compromise who you are and what you value[/kwlink] just for a TV show. But that doesn’t mean you can’t add a little spice to your audition or audition tape.

What Producers Want

Reality show producers want to see confidence and a distinct personality. If there’s something that makes you different from others, play it up. They’re always looking for what makes good TV. If you can perform, if you can be spunky, bring it! But don’t—I repeat DON’T—be the jerk of the show. That’ll come back to haunt you in the future.

    Dear Dish-It In The Forums

    ​Dear Dish-It,              I have a huge crush on this really cute boy named Austin. He is so sweet and shares many character traits as me. I am super worried since next year we have our first dance and I'm worried about if he'll ask me. But, that's beyond the point. His best friends keep telling me that he is madly in love with me so I really want to talk to him. I am so worried about what will happen though. We are already great friends and I don't want to ruin what we have no. I am so confused. Please, please help! :love :mad :sad PS. Did I mention that I have a HUGE crush on him?                        Sincerely, Love-Sick and Confused Youre worried about a dance for next year? ​Anyway, just talk to him, and maybe even tell him how you feel.
