CBS 3 TO HOLD CASTING CALL
FOR BIG BROTHER
FRIDAY, APRIL 15 NOON TO 2PM
Philadelphia, April 12, 2011 – Big Brother is searching for television’s next reality star, and the show is bringing its search to Philadelphia to look for ideal housemates for Season 13.
Big Brother Senior Casting Producer Tedd Schermerhorn is coming to Philadelphia on Friday, April 15, from 12 noon to 2 p.m. to interview candidates. The casting call will be held at CBS 3 studios, 1555 Hamilton Street (entrance on 16th Street between Callowhill and Spring Garden Streets) in Philadelphia.
Participants will get two minutes to tell Big Brother why they think they would make the ultimate housemate. Applicants must be a U.S. citizen, 21 years or older, have a completed official application (available on www.cbsphilly.com), two pictures of themselves (one face and one full body), a copy of their birth certificate or social security card and a copy of a state-issued license or ID.
Big Brother is the hit CBS reality television show that follows a group of people living together in a large house who are continuously watched by television cameras 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Each series tapes for approximately three months and consists of 12-15 participants in the household. In the end, the housemates try to win a cash prize of $500,000 by avoiding periodic evictions from the house.
CBS 3 (KYW-TV) and The CW Philly 57 (WPSG-TV) are part of CBS Television Stations, a division of CBS Corporation.
Personally, I’ve never been a fan of “Big Brother.” My big summer show is “Mad Men,” which unfortunately will not return this summer, as its next season doesn’t start until 2012.
