Have you considered going on a TV gameshow or quiz show? It’s a fun way to compete to win a cash prize, and there are always plenty of opportunities to apply. It’s not all about being a general knowledge buff either – there are gameshows for sporty types, musical types and family groups too.
This post lists current UK contestant calls, with details of how to apply – check out my popular post Top tips to get on a TV gameshow for more advice on your application, audition and filming the show itself!
Current UK contestant calls
5 Gold Rings
As a couple, you’ll need to think fast, move quickly and be accurate, if you want to walk away with a £25,000 cash prize! You could be friends, family, colleagues or a couple. If you’re both competitive characters who love to play games and have fun, get in touch.
- To apply, email your name and the name of your playing partner, along with contact numbers for you both to 5GR@itv.com. Please quote Be on TV: 5 Gold Rings Application in the email subject line (closes 15 November 2017). Read more on the ITV website.
Who Dares Wins
On Who Dares Wins two teams of strangers compete to win £50,000 by completing lists. From Bruce Willis films to properties on a London Monopoly board, the teams bid against each other to play the list – the team who bids more plays. If they reach their target they win the list. If they fail, their opponents win. The first to win two lists get to play for £50,000 and if they keep winning they can keep earning more cash.
Fifteen to One
Played over three rounds, the Fifteen To One contestants simply have to avoid elimination. To do that they not only have to answer questions correctly, they must also decide which of their opponents to nominate to put under the question spotlight and it’s this tactical game play that makes Fifteen to One more than just a quiz.
- Email email@example.com before 1st February 2018.
