NFM Hosts Survivor Tryouts
By Home Furnishings Business in on January 2006
Nebraska Furniture Mart in Kansas City, Kan. was flooded last week with about 200 hopeful "Survivor" contestants eager to prove they have what it takes to outlast others vying for $1 million on the CBS reality show.
The four-hour event, sponsored by the local CBS affiliate, was one of 48 casting calls being held across the country between Jan. 7 through Feb. 3.
Nebraska Furniture Mart isn't new to such tryouts. The mega-store has hosted auditions before for "Survivor" and has also opened its doors for auditions for "The Apprentice" and the "Amazing Race."
