From a press release:

Do you have what it takes to be the last remaining Houseguest? You’ll have the chance to prove it when WYOU holds a “Big Brother” casting call on Thursday, March 31 at Mohegan Sun Pocono in Wilkes-Barre.

“Big Brother” Season 17 alum and Scranton native John McGuire, also known as the “rockstar dentist” Johnny Mac, will stop by to mix with fans in line. This could be your chance to be in the running for the grand prize of $500,000 on the hit CBS reality show.

Guests must be 21 and over to attend and audition at the event, held in the Keystone Grand Ballroom at Mohegan Sun’s Convention Center (1280 Hwy. 315, Wilkes-Barre) from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.

Participants may not line up until 8 a.m. the morning of the event. Registration begins at 10 a.m.

Full eligibility requirements and applications are available here.

Applicants moving onto the next round of casting will be notified by April 30. However, there is a chance that the show may conduct more than one casting call this season, so hopefuls should still consider themselves “in the mix” until the end of May. Due to the large number of submissions, the show will only contact people moving forward to the next round of casting.
