Several years ago, producers of the CBS show Big Brother held a casting call here in Minnesota. The crew requested some airtime on our radio station and offered me an audition. I didn't take it seriously because I figured they were just going through the motions to get on the radio and get the word out.

I don't remember much from the virtual audition other than the casting agent criticizing my outfit. I was wearing a ball cap and a hoodie. You can find out how to apply to be on the show below. My advice - dress to impress.

How Do You Get On Big Brother?

You can apply to be on the reality competition show online. Applicants must record a video to submit to producers, fill out an application, and submit a photo.

The show's producers follow up if they're interested.

The show offers tips online and encourages all applicants to be themselves. "Be yourself!" (unless you like to wear ball caps and hoodies)

The show's producers say, "We want to get to know who you are as a person. How will your life experience help you win Big Brother? How will you interact with the other houseguests? When describing yourself, remember to cite real-life examples. We love a good story!"

CBS has just announced the houseguests for the upcoming season of Big Brother and one of the competitors is from Rochester, Minnesota. Keep reading to find out about him and learn about the show.
