‘Big Brother’ to hold Manhattan casting call


The CBS reality TV show “Big Brother” is now accepting applications for season 19. An open casting call is scheduled for Manhattan, one of the eight casting locations across the U.S., on April 11.

The event will take place at Kite’s Bar and Grill from 4-7 p.m. According to the show’s website, those interested only need to bring a photo ID to the casting call.

Those interested in being casted must supply a video, which can be pre-recorded before the casting call or “you can just wing it if that is what you prefer” at the casting call.

To apply online and for more eligibility requirements, information can be found on the “Big Brother” casting website.

According to the website, one participant will receive the grand prize of $500,000, which is subject to change by producers and the network’s discretion.

Hi, I'm Kaitlyn Alanis, former news editor for the Collegian and a May 2017 graduate in agricultural communications and journalism. I have never tried a hamburger and I hate the taste of coffee, but I love writing stories and sharing what I learn with our readers. By writing for the Collegian, I can now not only sing along when the K-State Band plays "The Band is Hot," but I also know that most agriculture students did not grow up on a farm, how to use an AED to save someone's life and why there is a bust of MLK Jr. outside of Ahearn Field House. Thanks for reading!
