“Survivor” cast­ing call com­ing to Wheat Ridge

The Denver Post - - FEATURES - By John Wenzel and The Know Pro­vided by CBS

Like any metro area of a cer­tain size, re­al­ity TV pro­duc­ers love Den­ver for cast­ing calls be­cause the city is a re­gional pop­u­la­tion hub — and one that’s con­tin­u­ing to grow.

Un­like most cities, cast­ing agents for “The Bach­e­lor,” “The Bach­e­lorette,” “The Amaz­ing Race,” “Amer­i­can Idol” and oth­ers keep re­turn­ing to the Mile High City be­cause we have an un­usu­ally young, fit and ed­u­cated pop­u­lace, com­pared with na­tional av­er­ages.

It’s no sur­prise, then, that CBS’ long-run­ning “Survivor” is com­ing back from noon-4 p.m. on Friday for a cast­ing call at Medved KIA in Wheat Ridge, 11201 W. In­ter­state 70 (on the north frontage road).

The show last in­vited Coloradans to try out for a spot in the re­al­ity-TV wilder­ness in Vail in 2014.

Pro­duc­ers are seek­ing

Eand women who are strong-willed, out­go­ing, ad­ven­tur­ous, phys­i­cally and men­tally adept, adapt-

Eable to new en­vi­ron­ments and who have “in­ter­est­ing life­styles, back­grounds and personalities,” ac­cord­men ing to an eli­gi­bil­ity page on CBS Den­ver’s web­site.

Peo­ple can begin lin­ing up at 9:30 a.m., and cam­era crews will be on hand to cap­ture the first 200 hope­fuls’ 1-minute video show­cas­ing why they would make a good con­tes­tant on “Survivor.”

No pa­per­work is needed upon ar­rival, but pro­duc­ers are en­cour­ag­ing in­ter­ested par­ties to fill out the video re­lease form ahead of time (it’s at den­ver.cb­slo­cal.com/survivor-eli­gi­bil­ity-re­quirments/).

All con­tes­tants must be U.S. cit­i­zens, liv­ing in the U.S. and 18 years or older at the time of ap­pli­ca­tion. If se­lected as a semi-fi­nal­ist, can­di­dates will be in­vited for fi­nal in­ter­views with “Survivor” pro­duc­ers in Los An­ge­les, ac­cord­ing to a press re­lease.

Past Den­ver “Survivor” con­tes­tants in­clude nanny Ami Cu­sack, one of the show’s first two openly les­bian con­tes­tants, Jim Rice, an owner/op­er­a­tor of two Den­ver med­i­cal mar­i­juana dis­pen­saries, who joined the cast in 2011, and last year’s un­der­wear model/ac­tivist Ken McNickle, who still lives in Den­ver.
