This is a single episode docudrama appearing on TLC which details unique obsessions. Some of the most famous people appear on the show eat weird items like glass, tires, mattresses or undergo surgery to make themselves look differently. The show has come under a bit of scrutiny as some of the people appearing on the show have refused to recreate their behavior on any other show. Additionally, TLC does not specifically site the show as being a completely real show show. Regardless, if you have a unique ability or talent that you wish to display to the world, this is an ideal show to apply for. It has an incredibly easy bar and casting process if you truly do have a talent or hobby that sets you a part from the crowd. That being said, it is highly recommended to be yourself and only apply for the show if you truly have something that would make you similar to other people on the show. About 50% of the people on the show seem to be digesting something that would either be harmful or disgusting to most of America. Even attempting these items can be incredibly dangerous.

Show Casting Tips

This show features an onsite camera shoot making it ideal for people who live in a small rural area or otherwise would not be able to travel for a filming. Additionally, the show can be used to build publicity for a local establishment by having a meeting in a certain restaurant or store. The primary advice for this show are to be unique, original, and memorable. You don’t need to exaggerate your talent, but you should definitely view this as something to be proud of. If you are selected to appear on the show, you will likely be known for this for an extended period of time. The other suggestion is to be true to yourself when sharing your obsession. There is absolutely nothing wrong with having unique interests, but understand that others may turn to you for questions or advice on the subject. You are setting yourself up to be a spokesman for that group so it needs to be something that you are comfortable with. Additionally, we have included a promo video from the show so you can get a glimpse of what appearing on the show is like:


Applicant Restrictions:

Because there is no prize money paid out to the contestants, there are less rules and regulations than other shows. The standard TLC guidelines apply of being a US resident and not being a minor. Otherwise, the casting is fairly open to anyone who is interested in sharing their wedding gown experience with the world.

90 Day Fiance – Casting Guide

90 Day Fiance Logo
90 Day Fiance Logo Contestants: Six Couples per Season
Top Prize: No Monetary Prize – Contestant Does Appear on Television
Selectivity: 1 Star


90 Day Fiance Show Overview

This is a multiple episode docudrama appearing on TLC that shares the journey of couples who are getting married in the US while one of them is here on a K-1 visa. The current regulations require that the wedding take place within 90 days of entering the country which can lead to some serious tension getting everything complete within the three month period. The show has already had two successful seasons and is currently casting for the 2014 season which will air in 2015.

Show Casting Tips

This show is incredibly specific searching for people who meet a unique niche. This means that if you fit the criteria and want to be on a show, this is a fantastic one to apply. With some general advice from the CastingMaster Community, the likelihood of being selected increases significantly. The producers are looking for people who have an interesting story that the viewers will remember. AS you are working through the audition, think about what would separate you as a couple from the normal American relationship in which two people meet, date for a few years, and then get engaged. You can focus on how you knew you found the right person and how you are dealing with the challenges of following your heart rather than the traditional path.

Another major suggestion before applying is to watch a few episodes of the show. Some of the couples that appear on the show are not painted in the most flattering light. If you or your significant other have issues with being the center of attention, this could lead to major issues and points of contention after the ceremony. T Additionally, we have included a promo video from the show so you can get a glimpse of what appearing on the show is like:

    Top Prize: No Monetary Prize – Contestant Does Appear on Television
    Selectivity: 1 Star


    OMG EMT Show Overview

    This is a single episode docudrama appearing on TLC which allows paramedics, firemen, and other emergency workers to share their story. The producers are looking for funny incidents in which everything turns out well for the person calling. The identity of the hurt person will be hidden to protect the patient; however, the emergency worker will appear on camera to share their story. This is a great chance to have a little fun with your daily work life and claim a few minutes of fame for you and the organization you work. This show premiered in May 2014, and it has wrapped shooting its first season. The producers are now casting for the 2015 season.

    Show Casting Tips

    The two most important elements to appear on this show are to be an emergency worker who is sharing a true story and have the proper approval before speaking to the press. The shows production team will almost certainly require waivers from both the leaders allowing you to be filmed about the story. It may also seek to get a waiver from the patient especially in small, rural ares in which someone’s identity could be easily inferred. If you have a great tale, then you need to through the proper channels to appear on the show.

    Please remember, your leaders and the show producers are on your side and want to give you a voice to share the funny story. In most cases, the hurdles set forth are merely to protect everyone involved in sharing the story. If you find someone who doesn’t want that particular story told or your group has a policy against this, then the episode is usually blocked even before any filming is done.

  • Craft Wars – Casting Guide

    Craft Wars
    Craft Wars Logo
    • Contestants: 2 per Episode
    • Top Prize: $10,000
    • Selectivity: 2 Star
    • Original Release: June 26, 2012
    • Finale Date: –
    This is a single episode elimination show in which three teams of contestants compete to make the best crafting project. The show is divided into two rounds with the first being a small craft that can be done in about an hour and is usually something created from fabric or flowers such as a backpack or a wreath. The second round the teams are given four helpers and several hours to create a larger piece. This second project usually involves some sort of woodworking or basic carpentry.

    Craft Wars Overview

    The show is hosted by Tori Spelling and appears on TLC . The show is judged by Eric Domesek, Stephen Brown, and Jo Pearson. As a bit of a joke, it seems a bit like an infomercial for Michael’s crafting store. While watching the episode the name “Michael’s” will be mentioned at least 5 times in nearly every episode. It’s a bit funny if you are looking for it to observe how the word is unnecessarily included in the various descriptions. In the first round, the contestants are judged against each other with the person who delivers the worst item sent home. A major tip for utterly everyone appearing on the show is to aim incredibly small and finish early. You can always add more details later to make it more fancy, but such a huge percentage of the contestants who appear on this show completely blow their first project due to time management the simple safe route is an almost guaranteed method of getting to the final round.

    Another for the popup round is to demonstrate a variety of techniques. The judges often discuss the impact of color and texture choices on the overall outcome of the first project. The projects which seem to perform best usually have a simpler color pattern that doesn’t mix a lot of patterns. The crafting closet is completely filled with supplies and discretion is important.

    The second round will always be the major project and while it’s best to play the first round safe, this is the money round so it’s more important to take risks. The primary obstacle in this part of the competition is instructing the helpers and the crafter’s partner on specifically what to do. For the average home crafter, they will have an idea in their head and will do the work rather than communicating the vision. Even the interior designers who appear on the show who do share ideas about projects will often be out of their element describing it without samples of previous work. When you are in the final round take the extra time to detail what you want done even if it means you personally will be doing less crafting. Many of the people on the show fail at the last minute or have to make major sacrifices to the overall design simply because they caught an issue too late.

    Craft Wars Casting Tips

    When you apply for this show, it is crucial to show that you are skilled in multiple mediums. We recommend highlighting several projects that include work with fabric, wood, styrofoam, and multiple types of paint. Each of these material is available in the supply center, and you’re going to look like a far more versatile contestant to display a jack of all trades. If you have won a state fair or other prizes in one field, you should definitely show off when mentioning that in your application, but don’t make that the center point. Remember, you want the television audience to like you, and it’s crucial that you be able to describe your crafting projects. I would recommend you create a couple YouTube videos describing projects that you’ve done so that you can show those to the producers as a method of getting one step ahead of the other applicants.

    Applicant Restrictions:

    • Must be 18+ Years Old
    • Must be a US Resident
