A New Game Show is Coming to Louisiana and You Could Be On It
There is a new game show heading to The Big Easy this fall and they are looking for contestants right now.
Organizers for a show called "Wait, What Happened?" are casting now for filming in New Orleans that will begin in November.
Contestants interviewed on the street will "try to guess what happened in some of the wildest, wackiest news stories from around the country."
Each half-hour episode features a total of three contestants. The show already began airing its first season back in May.
"Wait, What Happened?" is available exclusively on the Very Local app.
Very Local is a streaming app that offers 24/7 access to local news, weather, and original series.
You can download the Very Local app for free on your Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, or Android TV.
Ok, so now you know a little about the show and you want to try to get on it. What do you do?
Here is all you need to know to apply:
Who can play?
Must be a legal U.S. resident ages 21 or older, residing in the New Orleans DMA in which WWH shoots. No employees of Hearst Television, Hearst Corporation, Very Local or its affiliates or their immediate family members may participate. Members of SAG/AFTRA are not eligible to enter.
How do I participate?
Enter by filling out a form online, providing basic biographical information, and answering a few questions to explain their interest in participating. Online entrants will be contacted by the WWH team to conduct a screening call. Entrants selected from that screening call will be scheduled for the shoot, as well as some standby contestants.
What happens if I'm chosen to play?
Selected entrants will be provided a date, time, and location to appear for filming. On the day of the shoot, contestants should arrive at the designated time and location, camera-ready.
What should I wear?
Contestants should wear comfortable, casual attire free of logos, graphics, patterns (avoids stripes and plaid), or objectionable language or imagery.
How is the game played?
Our host will make some small talk with you to introduce you to our viewers, drawing on biographical information provided during the screening process. The game will consist of up to five questions in various formats (true/false, multiple choice, etc.). The host will tease a part of a news story, and then ask you to make a guess about what happened. What are the prizes? Everyone’s a winner and will go home with at least a Very Local souvenir. Contestants who answer correctly earn money for each correct answer, with the chance to earn up to approximately $200 in cash or gift cards.
