Applying for Fear Factor begins with 3 easy steps:
1. Making one 5-minute personal videotape of your duo together.
2. Filling out 2 SEPARATE applications (one for each person), including a recent photo of each person
3. Sending it to our casting team.
1. Making Your Videotape
Making a videotape audition for the program is very easy. Using a video camera, make us a 5-minute tape that explains why your duo would be excellent candidates for Fear Factor. Be creative, show us both of your personalities - tell us who you both are and what makes your duo unique. Please start with name and hometown. There is no "right" or "wrong" thing to say on your tape, we just want to get to know both of you and what makes your duo unique and special.
-DO NOT ATTEMPT ANY STUNTS ON YOUR TAPE
-Make sure we can see and hear both of you clearly.
-At the end of the tape please zoom the camera out to include a full body shot of each of you.
-Label the tape with both of your names, ages, addresses and phone numbers.
-We can only accept VHS tapes (The ones that fit in your VCR). Transferring your camcorder tape to VHS can be accomplished easily. Use the Red, White, and Yellow cables that come with your camera to connect it to your VCR. Push play on your camera, and Record on your VCR. Please run a test and make sure your transfer worked properly.
-Be Kind, Rewind. Rewinding your tape to the beginning greatly increases our fondness for you.
2. Filling out the Application:
Adobe Reader is required to view the application. Click here to download a free copy if you do not have it installed.
Please take your time and answer the questions honestly. Additional instructions are enclosed on the first page of the application. We will only accept completed and signed applications if they are accompanied by your videotape. Please make sure to fill out SEPERATE applications.
Include a recent photo:
Please enclose a recent personal photo of each person with the application. Make sure your photo(s) are clearly labeled with your names and phone numbers on the back. It is best, though not mandatory to send 2 clear photos of each person - one close up and one full body.
