Casting Call: Adventure Capitalists is Looking For Outdoor Entrepreneurs

Do you have a great idea for a product or business that revolves around the outdoors or adventure travel? Are you looking for funding to get that idea off the ground? If so, the Adventure Capitalists want to hear from you. 

If you're not familiar with Adventure Capitalists, it is a television show on CNBC that features three hosts – Jeremy Bloom, Craig Cooper, and Dhani Jones – who also happen to be businessmen who are looking to invest in great ideas that revolve around the outdoors. They bring on potential partners to pitch them on their idea, and if they like what they hear they just might buy in and help get the project funded. The format is similar to ABC's Shark Tank, which has been a popular show for a number of years now. 

As Adventure Capitalists gears up for a new season, the producers have put out a casting call for new guests to have on the show. The team is looking for outdoor entrepreneurs who are looking for investors to help them take their products from a simple idea to reality. If that sounds like you, you can apply to be on the program by clicking here.  (Before applying, you may want to first check out the list of eligibility requirements as well. Those include being over 18 years of age, and a citizen of the U.S. or hold a visa to work within that country)

If you haven't seen the show before, it really is quite interesting. Some of the products that are pitched to the hosts are quite remarkable, while others are bit silly. It is fun to see what kind of ideas are floating around out there, and you might even recognize some of the people who are sharing their ideas. For instance, on one episode the founders of SlingFin tents appeared looking for funding on some new projects that they are working on. 

This is a legitimate opportunity to turn your great idea into a legitimate product. If you think you have what it takes, head on over to the Adventure Capitalists website now and apply for your chance to be on the show. Good luck! 

Casting Call: New Television Show Looking for "Extreme Survivalists"

A new television show is currently looking to cast fresh faces for what sounds like a reality competition of some sort. I've had this rattling around in my email inbox for awhile, and thought I'd share it just in case someone was interested in giving it a go. Here's the casting call in full:

INFORMATION:

All I'll say is, that is a lot of hashtags. And good luck to anyone who applies. It certainly could be a good opportunity for the right person, and there seems to be a growing demand for reality television that takes place in remote areas of the world. Perhaps this will be another hit in that genre.

Casting Call: Want to Be on a New Adventure Television Show?

A "major cable network" has put out a casting call for a new television show that is going into production soon, and it is looking for adventurous people to take part in a competitive event that would give them the opportunity to win as much as $50,000.

Not much is known about the show just yet, although we do know that it comes from the producers of such shows as The Biggest Loser, Beauty and the Geek, and Bar Rescue. We also know that it will involve an "extreme obstacle course" that must be navigated using one tool – cold hard cash. Contestants will be asked to complete the competition using a set amount of money that is given to them ahead of time. They'll have to choose wisely in how they spend that money, potentially using it buy assistance in completing tasks, traveling to new locations, or overcoming obstacles. On the other hand, more resourceful individuals may find ways of advancing within the competition without spending their money, allowing them to keep more for themselves down the line.

While that may sound like a bit of a strange concept, I'm assured that this is an "adventure competition show" which will pit teams of two against one another on great challenge. That means that if you want to sign up, you'll need an enthusiastic partner to join you. All applicants must also be over 21 years of age and reside in the U.S. as well.

While I don't know a lot more than that about the show, it does sound like it could be a bit like The Amazing Race, with teams of two racing against others to complete challenges. That is pure speculation on my part however, as it could be something completely different.

To apply for consideration go to this website and fill out the online form. I've been asked to inform anyone who does apply to indicate that you read about the show on The Adventure Blog, as that could afford you priority consideration. The details of the casting process also say that a short 1-2 minute video of you and your teammate would give potential contestants a higher priority as well.

Good luck!

Adventure Television Casting News - Animal Planet and Survivorman

Have you always wanted to be a reality television star? If so, than I have a couple of casting opportunities for you that just might be your big break.

First, Animal Planet is looking for expedition leaders to travel Greenland to be a part of their show Ice Cold Gold. The program follows a mining company as it travels to remote areas of globe in search of valuable metals and minerals. This year, that quest is taking them to parts of Greenland that have seldom been visited by outsiders before, where they'll race to complete their job before the harsh Arctic winter sets in, covering the landscape in snow and ice once again.

If you think you might be qualified, send an email that includes a photo and a brief description of yourself, as well as some info on your expedition experience,  to [email protected]. You can also find a bit more of a description in this posting at ExWeb.

The second opportunity is one that I'm sure will appeal to a number of readers will be interested in. Reality television legend Les Stroud is preparing to film new episodes of his show Survivorman and he's looking to take one lucky viewer with him out into the field. For those who haven't seen this show (have you been living under a rock?), Les is dropped off in a remote region of the world – usually completely alone – and he must survive in that environment while making his way to safety.

But for an upcoming special episode Les wants to take someone along with him on his adventure, and he is accepting applications to do just that here. Applicants will need to fill out the online form and submit a 5-10 minute long video explaining why they are the right person to accompany him out into the wild. The submission deadline is April 1, which is a week from today, so you better get going. Les explains more in the video below.

Good luck to anyone who applies for either of these opportunities. They could certainly lead to some interesting adventures.

Casting Call: BBC and Discovery Channel Seeking Participants For New Survival Show

BBC Worldwide Productions and the Discovery Channel have put out a casting call for a new survival series, and they've asked me to share it with readers at The Adventure Blog. According to the email I received from Safford Productions,  the show, which remains untitled at this time, will be a true test of survival, and not for the faint of hear. Here is the notice that was sent my way in its entirety.


NOW CASTING
HARD CORE, TRUE SURVIVALISTS!

BBC Worldwide Productions and the network that brought you ‘Naked and Afraid’, ‘Dual Survival’, and ‘Deadliest Catch’ are casting a unique, exciting, never before imagined survivalist series.

We are going big and looking for the best of the best — we are interested only in those who have the proven skills to last hour-to-hour, day-to-day, and week-to-week in an unforgiving, unpredictable, and untamed environment in one of the most remote parts of the world.

We are looking for a cast of individuals with varied backgrounds, from Boy Scouts to preppers, botanists to ex-military, medics, scientists, engineers, hunters and gatherers, and everything in between. You must be strong in character, quick thinking, highly competitive, methodical, resourceful and strategic.

This is not survival light! The mental strength and physical ability to persevere in the remote wilds of an unfamiliar territory WILL BE REQUIRED. You will be tested in a 24/7 live and interactive TV format, where viewers will be able to track your progress—and your failures. We are only interested in the real deal—casual weekend campers and reality show wannabes need not apply.

We challenge you to survive 42 days in the wild, relying on nothing but your skills, your smarts, and your will to survive.

CAN YOU HANDLE IT?
