US TV show hunting for local talent
IF YOU have recently moved from overseas or are thinking about making the move, American reality series House Hunters wants you.
As the second-highest rating show in America, behind only X-factor, the series has a huge following worldwide and producers are keen to hear from potential talent in the Douglas region while on location in the Far North.
It does not matter if you own a house, are renting, or living in a holiday house, the only condition to become part of the television series is you have to be fluent in English, under the age of 40 and have lived overseas at one stage.
The show follows individuals, couples or families in the hunt for a new home and with the assistance of a realtor, to the delight of 22 million viewers in the US alone.
Production assistant Jus Murray is encouraging everyone to apply to be part of the show, even if you moved a while ago.
“We would at our expense fly them back to the country of origin for one day of filming and we require them for three days of filming in the Port Douglas area.
“We film them looking for a home and then their choice of home and job - their place of business would also be showcased.
“We are trying to get more contributors for the show and we probably can do one person in each area - Port Douglas, Oak Beach, Daintree, Julatten, Mt Molloy, Mossman, Cooya, Whyanbeel - if we can get 10 shows it would be amazing.”
Mossman’s Heidi BergenRawlins moved with her husband Chris and son Max from Scotland and works at Raine & Horne and was on the reality show last year with local real estate agent Travis Schumacher.
“Travis and I had direct inquiries from potential buyers from the States and at the airport a couple months ago an American lady came up and said, ’I saw you on House Hunters, I love your home’,” she said.
“The feedback has been really good and the filming itself was good fun.”
