It feels like it’s been a rather long time since we’ve written anything regarding “The Amazing Race Canada,” but this is a series that we’ve loved over the past few years — even more so, in some ways, than the American version of the show. We think we’re coming off of an incredibly-competitive season over the summer, and that Steph & Kristen may very well be one of the strongest teams to ever win any version of the show.
Now that it’s been a few months since season 4 wrapped up, the CTV series is now getting set for season 5 to air potentially next year — and we’ve got a little more info for you if you want to audition.
You can apply by heading over to the link here and filling out the entire application and creating a video. You gotta do it before December 1 if you want a good shot at getting on the show next season, so time is running out. Get those cameras rolling!
If there is one big of advice that we’d hand down, it’s to remember that the people watching your video don’t necessarily care if it’s a top-notch production or if you’re going to be a leading candidate to win the Race; they just want to know who you are and your relationship to your teammate. Don’t try to pretend to be someone else (cause they’ll know!), just have fun with it and put the best version of yourself forward.
Beyond that, it’s hard to get into specifics of what casting is looking for since there is no hard-and-fast rule for how to get on a reality show. It’s all up to what the head of casting is looking for; you can be a great character, but you may just not fit with a given cast for a specific year. While it’s for a different show, we think our recent interview with Robyn Kass (“Big Brother Canada”) applies here when it comes to the finer details of the casting process and various misconceptions that are out there.
