GotCast is NOT Worth Your Time

GotCast.com claims to help people get casted on a reality television show and other scripted shows. The idea of the site is that you sign up for a certain show and those who get voted into the top 10 get looked at by casting producers. Last year I tried this website in hopes of getting on Big Brother 11. You can spend hours upon hours here trying to get others to vote for you and also voting for others and commenting to help promote yourself. The end result though is terribly sad as there is nothing ocuring after the casting ends. You get no emails and no confirmation that your information was even looked at. Also, anyone who applies for Big Brother must fill out the lengthy application form. This was never asked of us who made the top 10 so how were they going to even consider us if we had no application submitted? Half the people didn't even have pictures or videos posted, they aren't going to even look at you if they don't know what you look like.

It's a social networking site, simple as that. It's meant to gain money for whoever runs it and honestly I think it's a waste of time for anyone who even creates a profile. Like I said, it seems very unofficial and pointless as there is no real way to know if casting is looking at your information once making the top 10. You can even pay to have yourself submitted automatically to the casting department but as far as I know it's the same experience as those who make the top 10, nothing comes out of it. If you have a few hours to waste go ahead and waste your time trying it out but don't expect to get casted. Spend your hours wisely and do the real thing, send in a video or go to an open casting call. At least you'll know you are getting even somewhat considered.

Ugh, thanks for warning us!  Have you tried doing it the "real" way yet?  I'm curious as to how that would go compared to this website.  Maybe you should hit up @dalydose because according his micro review, his sister was on it, so he might be able to offer you some insight.  Thanks for sharing, Joe!

I've tried sending in a video application for one season but that's about it. I just think that GoCast is a gimmick and you'll never really have a chance in going on there to get on a show.
