GSN Now Casting for Lingo

By March 2, 2011

Follow me on:

Back in January we mentioned that GSN was bringing back Lingo, their original game show that had previously been hosted by Chuck Woolery. They've got a new host in comic Bill Engvall, and now they're looking for some new contestants!

They're looking for 2-person teams who love word games (naturally), and you don't have to live in the Los Angeles area to audition as long as you can get there at your own expense for an audition and show tapings. You also must be at least 18 years old and a resident of the U.S.A. To apply, send an e-mail to lingogameshow@gmail.com and include:
  • Full name
  • Age
  • E-mail address
  • Contact phone numbers
  • Occupation
  • The city you live in
  • A recent photo
  • A brief explanation of "why this is the game show for you
I know a lot of you have been anxious for this info, so best of luck with your applications! Let us know if you get an audition!

What happened to Chuck Woolery? Curious that nothing was done for his “retirement” from the show.

(13) me says:

Why should you send a picture prior to be selected? What does that have to do with playing the game? Sounds kind of discrimatory……like they are looking for players with a certain looks……

When will you producers realize how crass the host is, even if we like the show the host id a cocktail party joke… Where is the class of Chuck???
