Wondering if anyone has been contacted by FNC casting, and if so, what did you have to do to audition?

There was a thread about it the other day on here somewhere. Someone had been contacted and they were chatting with Sugarshack about it.

I got a voice mail from someone who identified herself as Julie Sarah from Food Network Challenge casting. I returned the call, but got her voice mail. Not sure if it's legit or not, but it got me wondering how they do choose their contestants, what they look for, what they pay for vs. what the contestants have to pay for, etc.

I was contacted by the Food Network. They send you a list of questions they would like you to answer in your audition video. They want it to be between 2-5 minutes in length.

How exciting! I kind of wish someone would call me...but then I tried to send in a video for Ultimate Cake Off and my tv "personality" stinks...I'm too much of an introvert for what they like to find to put on tv. Oh well.

Good luck!

Kitagrl.... Considering the kind of stuff on TV today, it's probably a compliment to not have a TV personality LOL.

It sounds like fun, but my concern is that I'm WAY TOO SLOW. I can spend 5 hours on a single fondant figure. Not to mention, I'm a one-person licensed home bakery, so I don't have a clue who I could even recruit as an assistant. Oh well....it's fun to dream isn't it? I still can't believe they even contacted me to begin with.

I'm sure you could get a lot of volunteers right here on CC!

If I thought I had a slight chance at competing at this level, I'd volunteer as well icon_smile.gif

Lisa I know what you mean by working slow. I get sooo frustrated when I feel like I'm being rushed. I'd probably have a heart attack if I did something like this. But congratulations on getting a call. What a huge compliment. BTW, I looked at your cakes, you definately have the skills to compete, your cakes are beautiful.
