Netflix launches largest reality casting call ever. Here’s how to apply

If you’ve always fancied yourself as a reality TV star but haven’t quite gotten around to signing up, then now’s your chance.

The largest reality casting call. Ever. | Netflix Reality

Netflix has just launched what it claims is “the largest reality casting call ever,” inviting one and all to join hit shows such as Nailed It!, The Circle, and Queer Eye for that 15 minutes of fame — or possibly much longer depending on how it works out.

Brandon Riegg, vice president of unscripted and documentary series at Netflix, announced the casting call in a blog post on Monday, August 9.

“Reality TV is a powerful genre,” Riegg wrote. “It has the ability to make you invested in who is going to win the big competition or find true love (or at least a good showmance). It also has the ability to bring people together from all walks of life. We love to hear from viewers who feel inspired and accepted after seeing themselves reflected in our shows. After all, what is reality TV if it doesn’t represent real people?”

How to apply

First, it’s important to note that to get involved you have to be at least 18 years old and based in the U.S., Canada, or the U.K.

To have a chance of appearing on a Netflix reality show, simply visit this webpage, select “submit your video” at the top right of the screen, choose the reality shows of interest (full list below), and then fill in a few personal details. Finally, upload the all-important video, which, by the way, should be shot in portrait mode and last no longer than 60 seconds. Also, don’t forget to include in the clip your name, age, and where you’re from.

Netflix’s top tip for your audition video? “No need for ring lights or glam, just be the real you!”

Here’s the full list of shows involved in Netflix’s casting call: Nailed It!, Queer Eye, The Circle, Love is Blind, Dream Home Makeover, Floor is Lava, Roaring Twenties, Get Organized with The Home Edit, Too Hot to Handle, Sparking Joy with Marie Kondo, The American Barbecue Showdown, and Indian Matchmaking.

Dish has ESPN, TNT, and NBA TV for basketball fans under one roof [Sponsored]
NBA basketball hoop on Dish Network

Lately, it's become apparent that the best place to catch basketball games is Dish. They've got so much under one service and sports fans can't quit rejoicing over it. For example, you can see every NFL game on Dish. Not some on Dish, some on YouTube, and a few others on that questionably legal streaming site; just all on Dish. Basketball fans deserve similar treatment and with Dish they get it. Right now, you can get ESPN, TNT, and NBA TV together, for as low as $105 per month when you sign up for Dish. Plus, if you switch to Dish now, you get $100 back to spend how you like. That can pay for Dish's NBA League Pass or go towards a month of service, effectively giving you one month of Dish for just $5. Tap the button below to see the plans yourself, or keep reading to see why we like Dish and these channels for basketball.

Why you should sign up for Dish to watch basketball
One of the first things to recognize about the Dish service is just how inclusive it is. Which it does require installation — it is a satellite-receiver based service — that installation can go anywhere. That includes places where high speed internet companies and typical cable providers don't have the infrastructure for. You know the type of place. Plus, it has great features, like Dish multi-view, to watch 2-4 games at once and possibly even record up to 16.
