You don’t have to lounge on your couch watching strangers fight for money on television, because you could be the one on the screen. After all, there are certain reality competitions open to anyone. All you have to do is create an audition tape and send it in for consideration. If you’re interested in becoming a star, here are a few reality competitions anyone can audition for:

Big Brother

Big Brother will give you the most bizarre summer vacation of your life. For three months, you’ll be stuck in a house with a group of strangers with no communication with the outside world. Although you won’t be able to read, write, or text until the show is over, you’ll get to engage in weekly competitions to test your mental and physical abilities. You’ll also have to make friends with your housemates, unless you want them to vote you out of the house and take away your chance of winning $500,000.


Survivor is somewhat similar to Big Brother, except it takes place on an isolated island instead of inside a house. However, contestants are still forced to compete against each other and vote for who they wish to eliminate each week. The last one standing is the lucky winner of a million dollars.

The Voice

American Idol used to be the go-to singing show, but The Voice has quickly overshadowed it. On The Voice, it doesn’t matter what you look like or what your background is. The only thing you’ll be judged on is your voice. The judges aren’t allowed to look at you until after they’ve decided your voice is star material. They only judge you by the sweet sounds you make.

The Bachelor

If you don’t have jealousy issues, you can audition for The Bachelor or The Bachelorette, where you’ll compete against other men and women to land the person of your dreams. All you have to do is send in a video where you explain your life story, your dating history, why you want to be on the show, and anything else you can think of that’ll make you appear more likable. You could even nominate someone else in your life to be on the show if you think they’d be a great fit.

Bad Girls Club

If you have trouble getting along with other women, then Bad Girls Club could help you gain some fame. The show follows a group of tough females who are highly aggressive and have trouble living together. If you don’t mind exchanging your happiness for a bit of popularity, then a stint on Bad Girls Club could give you exactly what you want.

The Amazing Race

Grab a friend or a family member you work well with and then audition for The Amazing Race with them. Even if you don’t end up winning the prize money, you’ll still get a free trip to some amazing places. Plus, you’ll get to experience new things and play new games you never would’ve tried if it weren’t for the show.
