Becker Furniture World To Host "Survivor" Casting Call

Furniture World News on

As the only official Survivor 14 TV Casting Call in Minnesota, individuals interested in applying will have the opportunity to come to Becker Furniture World on Friday, June 9th, 2006 between Noon and 3 p.m. and submit their completed SURVIVOR application and let WCCO-TV videotape their SURVIVOR audition. With one chance and no second takes, individuals auditioning will need to be prepared to be in front of a camera for up to two minutes, convincing the producers of Survivor why they should be chosen to be on Survivor. Katie Knutson, WCCO spokesperson for the casting, says people should bring their supporting documents with them. For those individuals that already have a produced audition tape and application materials, WCCO will mail those in if dropped off with a completed application at this casting call, as well. Those applying must have a completed application form and a copy of a valid U.S. passport (or proof of having applied for issuance or renewal of such) along with a passport-sized photo.

That occurs in later rounds of auditions. However this is the first step in the process for those with a strong desire to get on the show, a chance to make it happen.“ “At our last Survivor Casting Call in January, everything ran smoothly, we had 304 people videotaped and 34 guests dropping off their own tapes”, says Doug Huseby, owner and founder of Becker Furniture World. Huseby adds, “It’s nice to know that with a showroom over a quarter million square-feet in size, we can offer this exciting event while not disrupting our normal shopping environment.” About Becker Furniture World: Founded in 1978 with a mere 500 square-feet of retail space, Becker Furniture World, Inc. has grown into one of the largest, most innovative, privately owned companies in the furniture industry.
