    Serious question

    If you were to try and audition for a TV survival show, how long would make casting vid and what skills would you highlight?

    Make it 3 to 5 minutes max. Highlight the will to survive, lightly demonstrate the skill to survive. Most of all lets your personality show, since honestly, the shows pandering itself as a dramatic reality tv show.

    Youre selling yourself as a tv personality, skills are almost obsolete for the video.

      The more quirky you are, or have some weird angle (that has nothing to do with survival), the most likely you'll be picked. It isn't really "reality" TV you know. It's all scripted

        Five to ten minute introduction and highlights of a three hour long video of you living in someone else's allotment undetected for two weeks.

          Options for character development:

          1) Badass survivalist- the man's man of ex military special ops survivor. You piss excellence and sweat adrenaline. The ultimate alpha male.

          2) Captain Oblivious- your mouth exceeds your skill level, you expect a good tan and a swift rescue as you utilize the skills you watched on YouTube one time. Your trusty sidekick is an overly large and compensating knife named Gloria

          3) The victim- you're in way over your head, the only thing that can save you is pure charm and willingness to cry like a diabetic kid at Halloween on live tv

          4) The swindler- your likely previous life as upper level manager in a used car lot has taught you how to get others to do your bidding. You're banking on your good looks or puppy dog persona to get you through it.

          5) The villain- you're out for number one. Deceit is your morning drink of choice with a healthy slab of fried distrust. You WILL win, no matter the consequences.

            A Scottish accent might help. Do you have any bagpipes?

                Mine would be three minutes showing how much patience I have when incredibly tired, hurt, or hungry.

                Then twenty five minutes of me with my junk tucked between my legs. Doing everyday tasks. Like fishing, killing game, or bitching at my survival buddy.

                  Reach a point where you can do tactical cartwheels for hours on end.
                  Add the ability to tend to a fire while you do.
                  That ought to get you in the show.

                      Serious answer -- you could be the God of survival -- know it all -- be the expert at every thing --

                      What fits into their script --- What interests them ? What do they think is good for the show ?

                      You could build a fire with just you're mind power alone --- they might want you to weave a basket --

                      Forget about talking -- you'll be handed a script to follow to the letter --

                      You'll be given a wardrobe / costume ---- you will dress & act as told --

                      On a youtube vid was one of these real-ish survivalists ---- he told of the producers who would throw a hissy-fit followed by the contract you signed ahead of time thrown in your face ---- what to say -- how to dress --- and how to act --

                        Smudge, all of us have our own ideas of what would probably work, but I doubt anyone on here has done it. I will get our mutual friend in touch with you. You know he has the pedigree.
