Experimental dating tactics, home makeovers, competitions—Netflix reality shows are our favorite guilty pleasure. And, be honest: what's more satisfying than a hearty TV binge? Rather than live vicariously through unscripted characters, viewers now have a chance to become one. 

If you believe your tidying skills rival that of Marie Kondo's or if you are searching for romantic bliss a la Love Is Blind's Lauren and Cameron, now's the chance to act on those desires. Netflix is looking for its newest reality TV characters, so you might actually be one step closer to fame than you thought. 

Casting call for Netflix reality shows

Coined the largest Netflix reality TV casting call, the 2021 search for contestants, daters, bakers, homemakers and more is in full swing. The video platform is encouraging faithful viewers (who are 18+ and live in the US, Canada, Ireland and the UK) to submit one-minute long videos to be considered for future seasons of the following hits: 

  • Nailed It!
  • Queer Eye
  • The Circle
  • Too Hot To Handle
  • Love Is Blind
  • Dream Home Makeover
  • Floor Is Lava
  • The Home Edit
  • Sparking Joy with Marie Kondo
  • The American Barbecue Showdown
  • Indian Matchmaking 

Plus, you might just have the opportunity to pave your way on a new reality TV show, if you're of the appropriate age. Roaring Twenties is a new series that follow a group of 20-somethings in Austin, Texas, who are determined to live their lives to the fullest. (We can already sense drama ahead.) 

How to submit a video to Netflix

Head to for everything you need to know about your future as a reality star. Interested participants are to submit a one-minute-long video—with no glitz or glam—highlighting their personalities. Participants are able to search for shows via title or genre and can make more than one submission (if they feel so inclined). 

After submitting basic information—name, email addresses, pronouns and social media information (which is optional)—reality TV wannabes are then asked to upload a video. The requirements, per Netflix, are as follows: 

  • Shoot vertically (portrait mode) 
  • Selfies are highly encouraged
  • Videos must be one minute or less 
  • Accepted video formats include mp4, .webm, .mov
  • Videos can be up to 250 MB in size

Best of luck, friends! Maybe we'll be seeing you on the next season of Too Hot To Handle (one of our favorites). We'll be sure to tell Harry Jowsey and Francesca Farago that they have some incoming spotlight competition.
