TOMORROW!! Open Casting Call for The Amazing Race
Teams of two, ages 21 and older, are invited to audition in the open call on Tuesday, June 2nd at CBS 62 Studios.
CBS 62 is looking for local adventurers, ages 21 and up, to represent Detroit on an upcoming season of The Amazing Race on CBS. The TV station will be holding an open casting call at CBS 62 Studios on Tuesday, June 2nd, from 11am until 3pm.
The Amazing Race features 11-12 teams, cast to compete to race around the world with cameras rolling 24/7. Teams are comprised of pairs who have a specific relationship to one another, be it family, husband/wife, boyfriend/girlfriend, fraternity brothers, roommates, etc. In each episode, the pairs strive to reach various destinations by answering sets of clues and are forced to remain side-by-side all the while. At each leg of the race, the final team to arrive at the location is eliminated. Each week, the competition gets stiffer, emotions fly higher, and the level of teamwork demanded continues to rise. One team is eliminated each week, until the final pair crosses the finish line and becomes the winners of The Amazing Race. Grand Prize includes a cash gift of $1 million.
Each pair attending The Amazing Race Casting Call will need to bring two signed video release forms (one for each applicant). Along with video releases, each individual should also bring valid photo I.D. (Driver’s License or US Passport). Each pair will be videotaped by CBS 62 and will have a maximum of one minute to explain why they should be contestants on The Amazing Race. Individuals attending without a partner will not be permitted to audition. Video Release Forms and Eligibility Requirements can be found at
CBS 62 will also be teaming up with Forgotten Harvest to conduct a community food drive at the Casting Call. Attendees are invited to bring a non-perishable food item to the June 2nd event.
