“We don't necessarily go out looking for specific things,” Kass said. “It's more like what ends up showing up. We definitely want some A type, obnoxious, loud people, but we definitely don't want a houseful of that. You want to balance it out. We want people with different types of opinions.”
A competitive attitude is a definite edge for auditioners, Kass said, since the show features weekly competitions for luxuries, food, power and immunity from being voted out of the house.
“Do not dress up in any costume. Do not use a fake accent,” Kass advises auditioners.
“People think that's the way to stand out. It just annoys us. We know that if you're locked in a house for three months, you're not going to be dressed like a banana and have an Australian accent. We'd rather see what we're going to get inside the house.”
Anyone cast for the show will receive a small weekly stipend to cover their bills each week they are on the show.
The runner-up will win $50,000.
