Two weeks ago, casting director Robyn Kass announced the former houseguests would be giving casting advice to fans. These pieces of advice would become available starting last Monday. Today’s piece of advice came from Big Brother legend and Season 16 winner Derrick Levasseur.

Derrick said there was really no one answer to getting cast on the show. So, he told people what worked for him. When he was in the casting process, Derrick researched previous seasons. He wanted to see what type of cast members had already been on the show and find something in himself that was different from what had already been seen by the viewers. For him, it was being undercover but for you, it may be something different.

Derrick’s advice was to find something authentic to who you are and separates you not only from people you are up against but from past houseguests as well.

This is an interesting piece of advice here. You definitely want to stand out from the crowd in your audition but be yourself in doing so. It definitely can’t hurt to do research on it because then you know what kind of things people have done before. By doing that, you know what not to do.

Derrick’s time on Big Brother 16

Derrick played one of the greatest games of all time. He was never nominated for eviction and controlled the game from start to finish. He had enough control that he was able to prevent fights from breaking out and calm his allies down among other things. Perhaps his most impressive feat came in week 2. It looked like Zach Rance was gone but Derrick managed to flip the house and save him. Ultimately, Derrick was awarded the win in a 7-2 vote over his ally Cody Calafiore.
