What Are Some Ways to Get Noticed by Reality TV Show Producers?

Updated on November 5, 2008

If you are interested in reality television, there are a number of ways that you can go about getting yourself noticed. However, the problem that you invariably run into when trying to figure out how to get yourself noticed by a producer for a reality television show is that figuring out exactly how to do it is a difficult thing to do. After all, attempts to get noticed are not done in a vacuum and for that reason if you have one attempt that goes poorly, your whole goal of getting on a particular reality television show can be dashed in the blink of an eye. You need to make sure that your first attempt is good enough to get on the show without making it something so weird that it would preclude you from ever being selected. Well, below are some ideas to get you started, arranged in order from safest to trickiest.

Video

Video is a great way to start because it is one of the safest things that you could do. Video in modern times doesn't necessarily mean getting in front of a camera and speaking, although of course for some reality shows that might be the way to go in order to provide a particular flavor to your video. You can send in a tape or DVD of your video to the show or in many cases you can even direct them to a website like YouTube where you place your video online for them to see.

Videos allow you to really be yourself in the most basic way. You can go ahead and tell them about yourself and why you think you would be good for the show. Of course, some shows already require videos are part of the initial application process, but for the ones that do not you can always make sure that you include a video. Videos are very safe and very hard to go wrong with and that is why they are the best option for someone that is starting out. However, the problem with the video is that most people think immediately about doing one and that means that with a video it can sometimes be hard to stand out from the crowd.

Website

One step up from the video in terms of trickiness is the website. There are many options for how you can get a website done, with the easiest being to go through something like MySpace or Facebook. However, if those options seem a bit too mainstream for you, another option that is open is creating the website yourself. This will give you the greatest amount of creative control over what ends up on the website, allowing the finished product to have a lot more of your personality in it than a MySpace or Facebook page could ever have.

Since websites can stream videos, you can actually still include a video in your final presentation. A website will allow you to go into great detail about why you would be a great candidate for that particular show and it will of course allow you to answer all of their concerns to your fullest in a way that is neatly referenced and organized for them to visit. With a website however, you risk showing a lot of your personality through the layout and colour scheme that you choose to use. If you use one that turns off the person that visits it, you could damage your chances. This is a minor risk however and that is why a website is still a reasonably safe way to get things done.
