“I always can spot the perfect reality TV contestant. I can see either a spark or uniqueness,” Sheila says. “I can see right through anyone who’s phony. Everyone always thinks that there are these characters, and then we have to look for these types. I don’t sit there and go, ‘I’m going to find the villian. I’m going to find the bitch.’ All the casting requirements are specifics. Maybe it’s a certain age group. Maybe it’s a certain hair color. Maybe they can be married or they can be single. It depends on the show.” Sheila says casting for a television show can be an arduous task.
“In a final cast of 10 people, I usually see 2,000 to 3,000 people,” she reveals. “The process for getting on a reality TV show is very simple. The chances of actually making it on the show is actually one in a million.”
