The Great Escape – TNT

Television’s most pulse pounding game show is coming soon and the producers are looking for talented two person teams to compete for fabulous prizes including the grand prize of $100,000. The Great Escape is the latest high quality production from TNT and was created by the team behind such reality hits as Big Brother, The Sing Off and America’s Next Top Model and promises to be the most intense reality TV game show ever. Auditions and casting calls for this all new television challenge are happening very soon.

The Great Escape will be hosted by the charming and quick-witted Rich Eisen who has been the lead anchor of the NFL Network since it’s inception in 2003. The game challenges three two person teams with previous ties (family members, friends, couples) to a series of amazing challenges held in an exciting new location (castles, ships, prisons) each episode. The shows will begin with the teams blindfolded and locked in a cell. The teams must locate a map hidden within the cell, break themselves out of their cells and complete four stages that lead to their Great Escape. Each stage features a new and increasingly challenging physical or mental challenge that must be completed to move on. The first team to successfully complete the challenges and reach the final destination will walk away with the grand prize of $100,000!  This show is set to be a fantastic combination of such fan favorites as Wipeout, Fear Factor and Survivor and may just turn out to be a runaway hit for TNT. It’s time for you to grab your partner and make you Great Escape. Casting calls and auditions for this series will be going on very shortly and contestant submissions are being accepted now. If you are ready to get in on the fun you can send your name and the name of your partner, your contact information, the relationship between you and your partner, photos of your team and why you need the money and why you should be on the show to Be sure to leave a comment for us below and keep checking in for all of the casting information for The Great Escape.

My buddy Jordan and I would love to be a part of this awesome show. Please give us the opportunity to be one of your teams. Thanks.

  36. Anthony Ramirez

    My name is Anthony Ramirez and I’m a huge Fan of the show. Not much experience in these kinds of things but I’m willing to give it a try for my own self being. I’m 23 years old and work at a dead end job but I have great instinct and I know I will be a challenge for the other competitors. If it’s meant to be it will happen but I’m also a rebel so I’m all for controlling my own fate even if it seems impossible.

  37. Charlie Merriam

    I am soon to be 45 and I am looking for that “big chance” I am very happily married for 13 years and father to three wonderful kids. I would love to just have a chance to show my love for adventure and knowledge coming together. My grandfather a marine and a self certified genius would put others to shame. As for the money it’d be great to be able to put it towards a bigger house so we could continue to foster/adopt several more kids that need a family. I am always wanting to help others.

  38. Gary Hamilton

    My sister and I would make a great addition to the show. We could use the money to pay off student loans, do a little traveling and of course the kids. We are both energetic people with a love for adventure and new opportunities. Please give us the chance to WIN the Great Escape!!!

  39. Heidi Lange


    I would look forward to any challenge presented. My 23 year old daughter and I…. use ‘Houdini” as our middle names. We are both physically fit, witty, and determined to win as a team!

    Life has already been an amazing challenge for both of us: divorce, poverty, frequent changes in geographical locations, domestic abuse, and life’s usual variances. Both of us have risen to the occasion, and ESCAPED a predetermined destiny, We are simply awaiting the next ‘great escape’…..this time with a reward: )

    I would use any money earned ….to help other single Moms, and secure my place in a retirement home (in a room next to a gentleman with a valid prescription for Viagra).

    My daughter would use any money earned….to finish her education as a Nurse Anesthetist.

    Enjoy your search, and please keep us in mind as future competitors: )

See we are both single dads with kids that we both love very much but due to lifes trials and tribulations have had to travel most of our childrens childhoods for work being gone at times for months at a times, sometimes only going home for thanksgiving, christmas, new years and back off to work. Being on this show and winning would gives an opportunity to have a carreer change and dedicate ourselves to our kids now that they will be teenagers soon. Both he and work well as a team and have overcome every obsticle together this would be a great challenge for us and oportunity for us with our kids in mind we cant be beat…..

    I am 23 years old and about to graduate college with a whole lot of loans. (Speak about motivation to hide the money!). My partner would be a friend/co-worker that is someone that beats to the sound of his own drum and spontaneous. I live a much more structured life and may need that spontaneity to win this 100,000 dollars to help relieve our debts. College grads all the way! We look forward to hearing from you.
