How They Got There.
One of the TV broadcasts on my current slate is Masterchef Canada. While trying to find out who won last night's episode(CTV started airing Quantico early and cut off the end) I came across the application requirements for the currently running season. Talk about a lot of work, and you might not even get close to being on the show. I assume other reality competition shows have similar requirements. After all the last thing you want is your winner to turn out to be a career criminal who ends up in jail, or learn that they're a wringer with an unfair advantage over other contestants. The process is probably also intended to discourage people from applying on a whim, and causing the producers trouble when they decide they really don't want to take part. It would be interesting to know how many entries they get, and how many of them are rejected without ever getting near being seen on TV.
