A Shot At Amazing Race Reality
February 2, 2010, 9:39 PM
For eleven teams it's the journey of a lifetime; Tuesday night 'wanna-bes' from Minnesota, South Dakota, even California came to Sioux Falls to try out for the CBS reality TV show, The Amazing Race.
The Amazing Race has been on CBS for 16 seasons as teams of two travel the world in the reality TV race.
Michelle Hotchkiss and her sister-in-law Jessica traveled from Huron Tuesday to get their two minutes of fame taped for the show. They hope the blaze orange and their bubbly personalities are enough to get noticed.
"We're both working moms and we put family first, and now we're looking to do something for ourselves, so we hope it works out," Jessica Hotchkiss said.
David Bosma and his friend David Janssen traveled from Worthington, MN but don't have any silly themes or gimmicks to get on the show.
"We're listening to all these people talk, and they've all got their little hook you know. We'll just go be ourselves and if we fail miserably who cares, at least we had fun trying out," Bosma said.
Because your reality TV dreams won't come true, unless you try out.
87 different teams tried out for the show at the Great Plains Zoo. Sioux Falls is just one of ten locations across the country holding auditions this week. The 16th season of The Amazing Race starts February 14th.
