I feel like a tiny ant…among the 200+ people who were there today. I keep replaying the two minutes of audition (basically answering the question of, “why do you want to be the next FN star?”) and wish I’d have said something better or differently. They didn’t even video-tape it! One of the staff had a spiral notebook, wrote at max 3 words down and then it was like, ok – you may get a callback in a week. But, but – I’m not done! I have so much to say! My favorite dishes, my philosophy/outlook on food, let me show you my personality and why i rock!!! but no. 2 min was all i got. i feel so special. not. My gut says they already know exactly what kind of a person they’re looking for, that if you don’t fit that label, then it doesn’t matter but I’ll try to be positive about it..
At this point, all I can do is hope that I get a callback. I got my point across, compelled them with reasons why it should be me and leave it to chance.
It was pretty nerve wrecking and exhausting playing the waiting game for 3 hrs. I don’t know how aspiring actors do it. Talk about time suck.
