Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
When should we arrive for the Casting Call?
There is no need to line up or camp outside Chinook Winds hours ahead of time for The Amazing Race Casting Call. Doing so will not give you an advantage over other teams or assure you an audition. Arrive shortly before 11:00am on October 4.
Will camping out the night before the Casting Call give us a better chance of getting an audition?
No. All that will do is waste your time, and potentially obstruct traffic in the parking lot and entry into the Casino. That is why we will distribute numbers and draw them at random. Arriving early does not assure you an audition.
Once I receive a number, am I assured an audition?
No. We will endeavor to give as many teams as possible the opportunity to audition. Depending on the number of teams who attend, it’s possible we will run out of time before all numbers are called. The final numbers will be drawn no later than 5:00pm.
What should we expect at the Casting Call?
Each team will be given a numbered ticket upon arrival. Half of the ticket goes into a hopper, and you hold on to the other half. Once you receive your number, you are free to enjoy gaming, food & beverages, and everything Chinook Winds Casino has to offer, as long as you remain in range of the casino public address system. Numbers will be randomly drawn from the hopper. When you hear your number announced over the public address system, you have one hour to report to the Amazing Race check-in table. This should give you sufficient time to finish up at the slots, lunch, beverages, restroom, etc. before reporting at the check-in table. At check-in, you will receive a full-page Audition Pass, and you will be directed to the Amazing Race casting area on the second floor of the casino. At this point, you are assured an audition. (Congratulations!) Approximately 10 teams will be gathered in a holding area to sign in and await their audition. When called, your team will be directed to one of four shooting areas where you will have no more than one minute to perform your incredibly memorable Amazing Race Audition video!

Indulge your appetite!
With five dining options property-wide, odds are we’re cooking what you’re craving! For an unforgettable ocean-view dining experience, visit the Rogue River Steakhouse, at the top of the Casino, where the only thing more impressive than the view is the menu. Chinook’s Seafood Grill is beachside dining at its best! Tucked into the hotel complex, Chinook’s menu emphasizes fresh, local seafood in an upscale, yet friendly atmosphere. The Siletz Bay buffet offers a hearty meal for breakfast, lunch and dinner and Sunday Brunch. Enjoy your old favorites, and perhaps discover some new ones served up fresh and hot and flavorful every day.
Just a tee-shot away from the Casino and Hotel is Chinook Winds Golf Resort. The lush, mature course is cut into the mountainside amongst old-growth timber, is bordered by natural wetlands and designed waterfeatures, and is stippled with defiant bunkers--a true eighteen-hole challenge for every level of golfer.
What’s the secret to getting on The Amazing Race?
Be memorable. You have one minute in front of the camera. Don’t waste it. CBS Casting reviews thousands of auditions to find the perfect contestants for The Amazing Race. Think about how you can make yours stand out. But let’s keep it classy. No nudity or profanity, please.
Also, keep in mind this is just Step 1 in the audition process. You may be asked by casting directors to go through additional steps before ultimately receiving an offer to join the cast of The Amazing Race.
What season are we auditioning for?
CBS is currently casting for Season 26 and beyond. If you don’t get a call for the next season, you may get a call for the following season. But only if you turn in a great audition performance!
Are CBS casting producers on site?
No. KOIN 6 and Chinook Winds are hosting this casting call for CBS. All videos and sign up sheets will be forwarded directly to CBS Casting for consideration.
