What do a nurse, a bow hunter, and a retired grandmother have in common? They all want to be the next contestant on the hit CBS show Survivor.
News on 6 reporter Omar Villafranca has more on Tuesday's open casting call in Tulsa.
More than 100 wannabes showed up Tuesday for the open casting call and a chance to become the next Survivor champion. Everyone, from mechanics, to flight attendants, hopped in front of a camera to record a 2-minute tape and take a step closer to winning $1-million.
The key for some contestants, was to make themselves stand out from the rest of the crowd. Debbie came armed with a strategy and a crossbow. "This kind of shows part of who I am, I do actually hunt and fish and so this is something they'd hopefully let me bring with me."
Another contestant is a nurse. She bared her soul and a bikini top, in the hopes of making it on the show.
Then there is Frances. She's tired of seeing all these young contestants and wants to see someone a little older on the show. â€œThey're all so young! They wear these teenie-weenie bikinis and they're all so pretty! You need real people, like me!â€ All that energy might get Frances on the show and a million dollars richer.
All the audition tapes will be sent to the producers of Survivor 13. We donâ€™t know yet where the next Survivor will be taped, but hopefully we'll have another Green Country contestant on the show.
