Casting Call: The CBS Reality Shows

So you think you could hold your own on a desert island? Keep your cool in a house full of strangers? Solve puzzles all over the world without alienating your boyfriend? Now's your chance to prove it.

CBS has put applications online for the next seasons of its three major reality shows, "Survivor", "Big Brother" and "The Amazing Race". All of the applications have to be submitted with a brief video that shows off why you could be a star. "Survivor" also has scheduled a number of open casting calls, some of them in rather odd locations. I mean, I know "Survivor" films in remote places, but Little Chute, Wisconsin?

The application instructions for "Survivor" notes that chosen contestants will be "adventurous" (gee, really?), "adaptable to new environments" and have "interesting lifestyles, backgrounds and personalities." "The Amazing Race" is looking only for people who enjoy living in close proximity to others.

Some of the disclaimers are fairly amusing: Hopefuls can't become candidates for office until after all the episodes have aired — so I guess that means Dennis Kucinich won't be applying. The "Big Brother" instructions tell applicants to include a full-length photo of themselves — and specify that they must be clothed.

A deadline for "Big Brother" hasn't been announced, but "Amazing Race" applications must be in by Jan. 16, and "Survivor" packets are due Jan. 30. So if you want to be the next prime-time reality star, you'd better get that video camera rolling.
