‘Big Brother’ to host Fargo casting tryout

FARGO – “Big Brother” is looking for you.

The CBS reality show is hosting a casting call from noon to 3 p.m., March 23 at Fargo Billiards & Gastropub in Fargo.

“Big Brother” features a group of contestants living together in one house, under round-the-clock TV surveillance and isolated from the rest of the world. Each week a resident is evicted and the last person remaining wins $500,000.

The show is in its 15th season.

In a news release sent Wednesday, a casting producer for the show announced it was coming to Fargo to seek “outgoing, intriguing, competitive” people, “up for anything and everything … willing to compete for half a million dollars against other participants as aggressive and ambitious as you are.”

In-person casting calls are held for “Big Brother” in 15 cities per year, though participants can also enter videos or apply online.

Possible participants must be at least 21 years old.
