Contestant auditions for "Millionaire" coming to Las Vegas

CREATED Jun. 29, 2013

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- The popular ABC show "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire" is bringing its contestant auditions to Las Vegas.

Producers from the hit show will hold the auditions on Wednesday, July 10 at Bally's Las Vegas to find contestants for the upcoming new season.

The new season will feature a new host; Cedric "The Entertainer."

It'll premiere on KTNV Channel 13 Action News on Monday, September 2.

Contestant auditions consist of a timed multiple choice test and for those people who pass, an interview with one of the show's producers.

Two audition sessions will be held: The first session will start at 7 a.m., with tests being given through 10 a.m. and the second will begin at 5 p.m. and continue through 7 p.m.

There will also be a session at 7 p.m., which will test contestants exclusively for "Movie Week," a specialty series featuring film buffs answering movie-themed trivia.

Auditioners will be seen on a first-come, first-served basis and producers will audition as many people as they can throughout the day.

Participants must be 18 years of age, a U.S. resident and meet all eligibility requirements, which can be found by clicking here.
