Hundreds of people from across the country auditioned Saturday in Normal to be on the hit CBS reality show.
One contestant said, "I've watching the seasons, every single one. And I watch them over and over just studying how to play this game and how to win."
WMBD 31 teamed up with SAMI Apartments and the Flats on Main to host the casting call.
People got two minutes in front of the camera to explain why they have what it takes to outwit, outplay and outlast.
Filming on the new season of Survivor is expected to begin this spring.
Case Cavalera of Bloomington said, "I think this would be right up my alley. Honestly, living on the beach seemed more like a vacation. I thought there were going to be some stunts involved, but this is what I am down for."
The audition tapes will be going to Survivor producers, who will decide if anyone is cast on the show.
WMBD 31 will also be hosting a casting call for the Amazing Race in September.
