The CBS Emmy winning show Survivor is a reality show which contestants are isolated in the wilderness and compete for cash and other fantastic prizes. Everyone always wants to know how they can have the chance to be the next contestant on this popular show. Well ask no more ladies and gentlemen, all you need to do is attend one of their auditions like The Hot Zone did on August 14th for an audition held at Mohegan Sun.
Mohegan Sun, located in Uncasville, Connecticut, is one of the largest casinos in the United States with 364,000 square feet of gaming space. It is located on 240 acres along the banks of the Thames River. Mohegan Sun was created in 1996 by the Mohegan Tribe of Connecticut, is one of the world’s most amazing destinations with some of New England’s finest dining, hotel accommodations, retail shopping, live entertainment and sporting events.
Contestants traveled many miles for a chance to compete on the show. Auditions were held from 2pm to 6pm at Mohegan Sun on August 14th. It was a great turn out as many people showed up with hopes of competing on the longest running reality competition game show. One hopeful contestant at the audition told us it was always his dream to be on the show and was super excited he was finally getting a chance to audition for the hit reality show.
Immediately following the event was a Q&A with Tony Vlachos, the police officer that won survivor: Cagayan. Tony spoke about his experience on the show and the impact it made on his life. Tony was also gracious enough to take pictures with his fans and sign autographs.
The Hot Zone wishes all the potential contestants that auditioned the best of luck and hope they get the opportunity to fulfill their dreams just like Tony did. Be sure to tune into the new season of Survivor premiering on Sept. 24 at 8pm on CBS.
