Another big competition TV show is holding a casting call in San Diego next month. But this time, you don’t need to be a hopeless romantic or talented chef to qualify for ten minutes of fame. In order to apply, you must be willing to make a complete fool of yourself on national television. Oh, and there are a few real requirements that we’ll get to later.
ABC’s slapstick hit “Wipeout” is now casting for season 6, and the show is hosting three open call events in Southern California. The casting call tour kicked off in Burbank on Sept. 22, and will continue Oct. 6 in Anaheim and Oct. 27 in San Diego.
Different from “The Amazing Race” and other competition shows which focus on character development through the season of challenges, “Wipeout” introduces 24 new people each week. Contestants of all ages, shapes and sizes go head to head through four rounds of ridiculous obstacle courses, in attempt to win the title of ‘Wipeout Champion’ and the grand prize of $50,000. The obstacle courses are demanding and unpredictable, and often lead to contestants getting bounced, smashed, splashed and ultimately wiped-out. For the audience watching from home, it’s a pretty hilarious sight to see.
The San Diego casting call for “Wipeout” will be held at the Courtyard Hotel in Mission Valley on Saturday, Oct. 27 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. In order to audition for “Wipeout,” you must be a legal U.S. resident, at least 18 years of age, and you must be able to swim. You can try out as a single or as a team. Before the open call event, producers require you fill out an online application. For more information, visit abc.com/wipeout
