In order to get on ‘Password,’ prospective contestants must undergo a tedious casting process.
So, you think you’re ready to put your hat into the ring to land a coveted spot as a contestant on NBC’s Password? If so, you’ve come to the right place. To kick things off, you’ll need to visit Password’s casting website.
From there, you’ll be prompted to enter your age. Keep in mind that you must be at least 18 years of age in order to be eligible to apply. Next, you’ll be taken to a page that asks a slew of questions.
At the top of the page, you’ll have to fill out the application. Also, be prepared to share two recent photos of yourself. After all, casting producers will want to see what you look like!
Next, you’ll see that there are a few requirements in order to be eligible for the application process. Aside from being 18 years or older, aspiring cast members have to be legal residents of the U.S., and cannot be a candidate running for public office now or within one year after appearing on the show.
Additionally, prospective cast members are required not to have been convicted of a felony within the past 10 years. You can also be turned down if you know anyone affiliated with the show or advertising agency. Most importantly, producers express the right to “render anyone ineligible” of continuing the process.
If all checks out, you should proceed to fill out the application. It consists of basic questions about your identity, work life, your personality, and your past experiences. You will also be prompted to share your Instagram and Facebook URL’s so producers can get a “sense of who you are.”
The casting team encourages applicants to upload a video of themselves as well. Keep in mind that game shows are all about showing off your personality, so don’t be afraid to go for it. After answering a few more questions, this step in the application process is complete.
