'Survivor IV' auditions tomorrow

Thursday, July 19, 2001

By Barbara Vancheri, Post-Gazette Staff Writer

Think you can cook rice better than Keith? (Who can't?) Appear as good-natured as Rodger? Show more maternal instinct than Tina? Be the next Colby, a man who had Jane Clayson nearly salivating into her coffee on "The Early Show"?

CBS is looking for a few good contestants for "Survivor IV," which will be filmed in an undisclosed location sometime between November and January. Locally, auditions will be held tomorrow from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. at Quaker Steak & Lube in Cranberry and Robinson. Contestants will get two minutes to make their video pitches, and KDKA will overnight tapes and applications to the Santa Monica, Calif., office of "Survivor."

Amber Brkich, the Brighton woman whose participation in "Survivor -- The Australian Outback" made her a household name, will be at the Cranberry location from 2 to 4 p.m. and Robinson, 5 to 7 p.m.

Contestants should download an application from www.cbs.com or www.kdka.com or get one at the restaurant and fill it out before stepping before the camera. They also should bring a passport-size photo, which will not be returned.

Producers say previous applicants need not re-apply since they will be considering past submissions for the fourth round. "Survivor: Africa," the third installment of the show, will air this fall. The remote location of "Survivor IV" has not been revealed.

Applicants may have to travel -- at their own expense -- to one of 10 cities for interviews if they made the early cut. The application lists them as New York, Boston, New Orleans, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Phoenix, Chicago, Atlanta, Houston and Miami.

The final selection will take place in Los Angeles. The show will pay economy travel and lodging for that leg of the process.
