Many game shows are established and have ongoing casting, while others are set to only air for a limited run and have seemingly fleeting casting calls. This list will be updated regularly with all of the open casting calls, ongoing contestant searches, and special events I can find. For even more calls, I've got a handy list of places to find casting calls as well.
Current Casting Calls
These casting calls are put out for a limited time only, so don't miss your chance!
- Hollywood Game Night - Want to be one of the "civilian" players on season two of Hollywood Game Night? You must be "energetic" and "fun," and only applicants over the age of 21 will be considered. Check out the casting call for more information.
- Big Brother -- Think you've got what it takes to live in a house full of crazy people for the summer and win some cash? Big Brother has been renewed for a 16th season and casting is already open.
