Transcript BAYWATCH SEARCHING for the ultimate MICHELLE CASAS A live casting call for the series Baywatch was held at the University of Houston March 26, with close to 300 participants competing for an appearance on the show. Two Houston residents, who were not UH students, won the contest. The 1998 Baywatch Search will visit 25 campuses across the nation and award 50 men and women an appearance on the show. "We are looking for men and women who embody a healthy mind and body with a love for the environment, the discipline to stay in good physical condition and a sheer determination to succeed in all things," said Greg Bonann, Baywatch executive producer. The goal of the Baywatch Search is to discover young men and women who represent the overall image of Baywatch. The competition consisted of three rounds. "The first round was a chance for them to introduce themselves, so we could get a taste of what their personalities were like. It was very interesting," said junior radio and television major Monica Quintero, a member of the panel for the event and the director of public relations for the Student Program Board, which sponsored the event. One of the emcees for the tryouts, Ronna Roberson, a junior majoring in radio and television, agreed. "The contestants had to show off a talent, sing or dance. The guys took their shirts off. It was a chance to get up there and do something crazy," Roberson said. In the second round, the five person panel of judges kept contestants on their toes. The 20 women that made the cut were asked questions such as "What is the difference between aV-6 and aV-8 engine?" and the 20 men were asked to do things such as sing the Cougar fight song. In the final round, the remaining five male and five female contestants read lines from a Baywatch script. "It was to show us if they could act. There was a lot of ad lib, so it was a lot of fun," said Quintero. The panel judged contestants in three categories, on a scale of one to 10, on the Baywatch look, energy and charisma, and talent. "I knew what the judges were looking for," Roberson said, "so I wasn't surprised that my friend won." Jeff Elkins, a junior radio and television major, made it to the final round. "It was a fun experience for the most part. I'm glad I was able to be a participant," Elkins said. On-campus Promotional Director Jo Ann Barnes, a junior majoring in communication said, "We were pleased with the turnout. We received the support that we were expecting from the UH students." Baywatch is the most popular program in the world with an audience of about one billion viewers a week. It airs in 32 languages and 140 countries such as France, Spain, Portugal, Brazil and China.
