Many game shows, such as "Wheel of Fortune" and "Family Game Night," require people to fill out an application form on the show's website as the first step toward being a contestant. "Jeopardy" offers an online test several times during the year as its first step.
Additional requirements may include submitting a video or photo of the prospective contestant. Some game shows invite selected applicants to interview or audition for the game. Usually, people must pay their own travel expenses to the audition site. "Let's Make a Deal" and "The Price is Right" do not require an application to be on the show; they choose their contestants from members of the audience.
