CBS Survivor casting Auditions detail 2019 – Open Tryouts auditions are coming to various cities next month looking for the next contestant to go after the $1,000,000 prize.
Do you have what it takes to outwit, outlast and outplay even the most devoted Survivor fans? If so, here is a chance to land a very coveted spot on CBS’s Survivor. The new season of the show is now casting and the Survivor tryouts are coming to various areas of the United States to hold video taped tryouts for the show.
Survivor is a hit reality show, one of the longest reality TV shows currently on Television. Survivor takes a group of strangers and drops them off at a remote location. The group is split up into 2 tribes which battle each other in various physical and mental challenges. Each week the losing tribe votes someone off until the 2 groups merge, more people are voted off and eventually 3 players remain.
When the show is down to 3, it is up to the voted off cast members to crown a winner. After a vote, one contestant will get crowned the lone survivor and claim the prize of 1 million dollars!
All participants must bring a valid driver’s license for identification and age verification.
Open Calls are held by our local CBS affiliates. They will be putting you on tape so there is no need to bring anything, but your ID to the open call.
One-minute auditions will be recorded for each contestant. Applicants are encouraged to creatively express why they should be considered for “Survivor.”

How stiff is the Survivor competition?
The 18 to 20 people who make it onto each season of Survivor have already beat out thousands of other hopefuls for the chance to compete for the final prize. The process is grueling, Lynne Spillman, who was the show’s casting director until 2018, told the Hollywood Reporter in 2015.
Being yourself is key in your audition video, she said, rather than trying to play a specific type of character. But it helps if your real self is outgoing – shy violets need not apply. Focusing on your failures is also a no-no. Producers like people who know the show and how to play the game, and who believe they can win.
Even if you’ve auditioned for the show once, you can always try out again. Producers will hang out to your original submission for about a year, and after that you can resubmit your application.
“It’s hard to get on Survivor,” host Jeff Probst told Global News earlier this year. “We’re super picky, we’re looking for really compelling people and interesting stories.”
To get on Survivor, you also need to meet certain basic eligibility requirements. Generally, you need to be at least 18 years old (though in a few states you must be older.) You also need to be a U.S. or Canadian citizen and have a valid passport.
If producers are interested in you, you’ll hear from them. Because of the volume of applications, you won’t be contacted otherwise.
Do you get paid to be on the show?
Being on Survivor is a big commitment. If you make the final cut, you need to be prepared to spend more than a month in the wilderness. However, you do get paid for appearing on the show – though the checks aren’t necessarily large.
People who are eliminated in the early stages of the competition reportedly receive a few thousand dollars. Those who make it to the second half of the season get as much as $40,000, while the two runners-up receive $110,000, and the big winner gets $1 million.
