Getting on the show is a huge achievement, just for the sheer volume of applications that the producers get each year. Housemates are cast based on a series of interviews that change every year. One year a YouTube video was on the list of requirements, while other years wanna-be contestants have been sent to a hotel as part of the audition process.

Showrunners and producers assess each person based on how entertaining they will be and quiz them on how they behave in different situations.
