From Love Island To Geordie Shore: How To Get On Your Fave Reality Show
*Immediately buys ten bikinis and brand new hair extensions...*
Well Love Island may be over but that means one thing: Big Brother will be starting soon. And tbh these weeks between our beloved reality shows is tough. What are we meant to so? Go outside?Lol. At least we’ve got True Love or True Lies? to tide us over.
But if simply sitting on your sofa watching hours of other people sit get drunk in a house isn’t enough for you, then maybe you should think about applying? So if you think you can be the next big reality star then check out how to get on your fave show...
BUT FIRST YOU'LL NEED ALEX BOWEN AND OLIVIA BUCKLAND'S GUIDE TO HAVING SEX ON TV...
Who doesn’t want to try and find love with a bunch of hot singles in a boujie villa all Summer? The casting call for the 2019 series is now out and you can find it right here. But apart from just selecting people through applications they all Insta-stalk potential contestants on social media so get those selfies lookin’ fresh.
A casting producer from the show told Cosmo: “We also cast our net far and wide by looking at social media profiles (Twitter and Instagram) as it’s always quite easy to gauge on there people who are popular, aren’t afraid to show themselves off and have a big following. We also attend events and hold street castings for prospective Islanders. The key is that they are over 18, single and looking for love.”
Plus if you manage to bag an audition them don’t flub the most important question: "One of the main questions we ask, from the outset, is if they would choose love or money. It’s always important to us that anyone coming onto the show is open to finding the girl or guy of their dreams.”
Well this might come as a shock but the key is that you’re a Geordie. Or you’ dad own a super wealthy car company like Lamborghini like Italian housemate Elettra. A good way to be featured in the show is to sidle up to the stars so head to the Toon and hang around Tup Tup Palace and Bijoux to ‘accidentally’ bump into them and get invited into VIP.
If you think you and your mates can be the next One Direction or Little Mix then get applying. You can apply via video or in person and for the laziest of us all you can enter via Whatsapp by sending an audition video along with your name, age, location and occupation. Srsly we’re not punking you. And from watching many many series of the show we call all agree that you either have to be AMAZING or really bad. So whichever you are...good luck.
Yeah this one isn’t so easy tbh. Though you've just missed out on applying to be Kris Jenner's assistant, we all know how quickly she goes through them so no doubt another chance will come up. Other options include becoming a super famous hair stylist, super famous makeup artist, super famous personal trainer...you get the jist.
Just like Geordie Shore it’s kind of going to depend if you’re from Essex because that’s sort of the point of the show eh? According to an insider they occasionally hold open days to cast new members of the show but it tends to be people that the original gang already know. So go find Bobby Norris and become his new BFF babes.
Ex On The Beach
If you fancy battling your ex in an exotic location then apply to be considered by the Table of Terror. Keep an eye on our Facebook page here for when you might be able to apply. It might seem obvious but having a bunch of exes is probs handy.
Made In Chelsea
As opposed to some of the other shows based in a specific location, MIC is actually welcoming to a lot of people from other places other than Chelsea dahling. But you need to be posh and probs rich. If that doesn’t sound like you then you can also apply to be an ‘extra’ on the show so you basically get to mill around while they fight over diamonds and champers. Win.
To get on the show you need to be 18 or over and legally living in the UK but sadly the 2018 applications are now closed. The chance to enter will open again right after the Summer series right here. Bosses advise entering an audition video that ‘shows your personality’ so don’t be shy! Insiders have also said that having a big revelation or an out there personality will also help you get through the rounds. WHO IS SHE?
If you're in despo need of a new show then you have to check out our brand new show True Love or True Lies? which airs Mondays at 9pm...
