If you’re stuck in a dead-end job and you’re looking for a little bit of change in your life, then you’re in luck! Two very different reality shows are coming to a city near you and if you’re lucky enough, you could soon end up on TV…again, for very different reasons.

It was only last week that CityTV announced that Canadians would soon be enjoying The Bachelor Canada with their kleenex and boxed wine and now comes word that the show is a cross-country hunt for the 25 lucky ladies who will be vying for the heart of the yet un-named Bachelor!

Beginning Sunday,Feb. 19 in Vancouver, the six-city casting tour will also make stops in Calgary, Winnipeg, Toronto, Montreal and Halifax. Full details on the casting tour are available at www.citytv.com/bachelorcanada. The Bachelor Canada begins principal photography this spring and will debut on Citytv this fall.

Here are the casting call dates:

Vancouver – Sunday, Feb. 19
Calgary – Tuesday, Feb. 21
Winnipeg – Thursday, Feb, 23
Toronto – Saturday, Feb. 25
Montreal – Monday, Feb, 27
Halifax – Tuesday, Feb. 28

Good luck and please wear protection.

If you’re more the type that like to earn your fame without making out with a complete stranger, the producers of Dragon’s Den are also hitting the road starting this weekend on a casting tour that will see them hit nearly every corner of the country, for an expansive two-month casting call that will even hitting up a couple of cities a few different times.

I actually once sat in on the auditions and it was definitely an experience.  If you want to make it on the show, my tips are this:  Have an idea, have revenue and be serious.  If you’re not already making money from your idea and you get asked to be on the show, they are doing it to destroy you.  You’ve been warned!

  1. In this grand scheme of things you’ll secure an A+ just for effort. Where exactly you confused us was on your particulars. You know, as the maxim goes, details make or break the argument.. And it couldn’t be more accurate at this point. Having said that, let me inform you what exactly did do the job. Your writing is really powerful and this is most likely the reason why I am making the effort to opine. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Next, while I can see the jumps in reason you come up with, I am definitely not confident of how you seem to connect the details that make your final result. For now I will yield to your position but hope in the foreseeable future you actually connect your dots better.
