Millionaire is casting for Season 2

#1 Post by bazodee » Sun Jul 19, 2020 8:18 pm

The second season of Kimmel-hosted Millionaire is now casting contestants (not celebrities).

I'm technologically limited here, but there is a Google Docs page out there with eligibility requirements and an application form. You're ineligible if you've appeared on any version of the show before.

Perhaps someone with better skills can figure out how to upload the application here.

I'm finding UK applications. Any chance that's what you stumbled across? --Bob

No. Definitely U.S.

Former contestant has uploaded it to the WWTBAM group Facebook page. Here are the eligibility requirements:

Eligibility Requirements
The following are the eligibility requirements for contestants (each, a "Contestant") on the television show currently entitled "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire" (the "Program"), which is being produced by Man House Productions, LLC (“Producer”) and intended for initial broadcast on ABC Television Network (“Network”). In order to be selected as a Contestant on the Program, and to be eligible for any prize ("Prize"), you must meet the following eligibility requirements:

1. All Contestants must be 18 years or older at the time of application.

2. Contestants must be legal residents of the fifty (50) United States or the District of Columbia.

3. Neither Contestant, nor any of Contestant’s immediate family members (e.g., spouse, parents, children, siblings, “step” relatives and their spouses), nor those living in the same household (whether related or not), may currently be or have been within the past six (6) months:
a. any employee, officer or director of Man House Productions, LLC, ABC Television Network, owned by American Broadcasting Companies, Inc., any television station owned or operated by Network, Valleycrest Productions, Ltd., or any of the foregoing entities’ respective parent, subsidiary, affiliated or related entities (including, without limitation, The Walt Disney Company, Sony Pictures Television and their respective affiliated companies);
b. any person or an employee, officer or director of any entity directly involved with the development, production, administration or judging, or distribution or other exploitation of the Program;
c. an employee, officer or director of any known, official sponsor of the Program; or
d. any person or an employee, officer or director of any entity supplying services to the Program.

4. No Contestant may currently be a candidate for elected office nor become a candidate for elected office for at least one (1) year after the initial broadcast of the final episode of the Program in which they appear, if selected for the Program.

5. Contestants may never have been convicted of a felony nor had a restraining order entered against them.

6. Contestants may not have appeared on any television game show exhibited or intended to be exhibited, including without limitation, on broadcast television, cable, and/or any streaming platform, that had or will have its initial broadcast or other exhibition within one (1) year prior to or following the initial broadcast of the Program episode(s) in which he/she appears.

7. Any individual who has appeared as a contestant on any version of the Program, and whose appearance was broadcast as part of the Program is not eligible to be a contestant on the Program again.

Producer will make all determinations of contestant eligibility in its sole discretion, which shall be final and binding, and not subject to challenge or appeal. Producer reserves the right to add to or modify the eligibility requirements at any time.

In addition, Producer reserves the right, at any time, to render ineligible or disqualify any person who, in Producer’s sole discretion, is sufficiently acquainted with any person or entity connected with the development, production, administration, judging, exhibition or other exploitation of the Program such that his or her participation in the Program could create the appearance of impropriety.

After this point, there is a 4-page application form

It is on the WWTBAM Contestants Facebook group, and was uploaded by Josh Woo. I tried linking it to our group but failed.

#7 puts the kibosh on me, even though I was only in the "ring of fire" and didn't actually sit in the hot seat.

A page of the application talked about COVID-19. I imagine they will cast first responders primarily, which they should be doing.

I think this will be the first BAM audition I will not even apply for...

I *don't* think #7 will rule ROF peeps out. We were *not* contestants, we were competing to be.
But clarification from the show would help.

#5 is certainly new, at least to me. Doesn't rule me out!

The concern I have is how it's phrased:
7. Any individual who has appeared as a contestant on any version of the Program, and whose appearance was broadcast as part of the Program is not eligible to be a contestant on the Program again.
Maybe the key is "and" rather than "or" -- if you were in the hot seat/ironing board/whatever and your show never aired (meaning you likely didn't get any money), that would make sense.

EDIT: I went ahead and filled out the application. One of the questions was if you had ever been a contestant (Y/N) followed by a "When?" I put in the date and indicated I was only in the ROF, not in the hot seat. I figure it's long odds anyway, so what the heck.

I wouldn't have put the yes there since you were only in the ROF. When the casting coordinators see the yes, they will likely stop reading and move on.

By putting no, at the time you are contacted (if they decide to contact you), you would then be able to explain you were in the ROF, and weren't sure regarding eligibility, and then LET THEM decide if you are eligible. This way you can't be told you were deceptive, and even if they were to go that route, at least you gave yourself a chance; where by putting yes with the explanation...well I would think your chances of being contacted are 0.01%.

Given the way the other questions were "steering," I suspect I wouldn't be what they wanted anyway. They asked a lot of questions about how COVID affected me, if I was an "essential employee," if I did volunteering, especially where social justice was concerned (specifically mentioning BLM), none of which I fit into.

But what the heck.

They called me. First step in the process and we're trading calls at this point but I know they're not completely uninterested. --Bob
