Be a ‘Survivor’

Fans of the CBS television show “Survivor” can audition to be on the hit series at an open casting call from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. April 12 at Friendly Ford, 660 N. Decatur Blvd.

“Survivor” is based on the Swedish television series “Expedition Robinson,” created in 1997 by Charlie Parsons. The American version premiered in May 2000, and is in its 28th season. CBS-TV has renewed “Survivor” for the next two seasons, both of which will air in 2014-15.

The competition features a group of strangers, who are deposited in a remote area, and then divided into teams called “tribes.” The tribes fend for themselves, securing food, water and shelter and competing in challenges for rewards or immunity. Tribe members from teams who lose in challenges are voted of by their teammates. Contestants are eliminated until one person is voted the winner, earning the title “Sole Survivor” and a $1 million prize.

“Now this is fun,” Friendly Ford General Manager Jason Davis said. “We love ‘Survivor’ here at Friendly and we love that the only casting call in Southern Nevada in 2014 is right here at Friendly. Do you have what it takes to win? Come down here and find out if you have a shot at being the sole ‘Survivor.’ ”

Prospective “Survivor” contestants must be U.S. citizens, 18 or older at the time of the audition, and living in the United States. Each contestant will have one minute in front of the camera to show and tell why he or she should be on “Survivor.”
