'Weakest Link' to hold auditions in Hawai'i

By Wayne Harada
Advertiser Entertainment Editor

The weekday version of "Weakest Link" is seeking outgoing and enthusiastic people to be contestants on the NBC show.


Producers of NBC-TV's "Weakest Link" will hold auditions here this week for contestants on the weekday version of the game show.

Contestant coordinators are seeking enthusiastic, articulate residents from all walks of life, in an open call at 10 a.m., 11:30 a.m., 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at the Sheraton Waikiki Hotel.

Prospects should be 18 years or older, with outgoing personalities to match the upbeat spirit of the show, in which George Gray is host. The day version airs from 4 to 5 p.m. weekdays on the NBC affiliate here, KHNL-8; it has been on the air since Jan. 7.

"We've been holding contestant searches all over the country" said Josh Epstein, a publicist for the show.

Candidates selected will be notified two to three weeks following the auditions and will have a week to plan a trip to Los Angeles, where the show is taped.

For more information, call Loren Beck at Beck Media & Marketing, at (310) 689-7273, or Epstein at the same publicity office, (310) 689-7227.

On the audition date, the show's staff will be accessible through the hotel switchboard, 922-4422.
