He has gone through the process, taken the tast, sworn the oath and renounce citizenship in any other country.

Much different than having a green card or visa.

(I went through this process when we moved to the US, my wife was a foreign national.)

Does it say in the contract of the show that you need to be a US citizen to perform there, or it's just a Magic Café rule?

No, why do you ask?
If this upsets you, address it to Roei as he brought up the question this morning.

The show is just being billed as the search for America's next great mentalist.

I ask because some people make it seem like that show is actually looking for the next great American mentalist.

Thanks for your answer.

That IS how the show has been billed and promoted thus far.

NBC has announced Phenomenon, a new reality competition series that will follow mentalist Uri Geller and Criss Angel Mindfreak illusionist Criss Angel as they search for "the next great mentalist," will premiere on Wednesday, October 24 at 8PM ET/PT


Where was it billed as looking for American mentalists? I'd love to see.

I'll send you the copies I made of the casting notices and description posted on NBC.COM at the original announcement of the show, and initial casting information.

That will be PMed to you tonight when I get home and have access to it.

Then you can look to your heart's content.

It isn't. One time it was for psychics, another magicians, illusionists, and mentalists (heck, possibly lions, tigers, and bears) BUT it was not for Psychic Entertainers.

Now it is for mentalists (according to DJM's post), not sure why magicians are on the show though. Smile

Gentlemen, I can assure you all, as a bonafide englishman, we would welcome one and all to our shores...we are afterall, a sponge like migrant group of people, we would indeed vote for just about anyone or anything that entertained us...chimps in hats drinking tea would go down massively well for example..

anyone with a massive ego with nothing to back it up would be instantly berated though..look what we did to your Blaine when he sat in that box being all glum for a week..we played golf at the lad to try and cheer him up...

come on over, no matter what your creed, or credo, though we'll pelt your ego with eggs if needs be...

I hope they do an english phenom...we'll show you how it's done!

please take that previous comment in good humour...being american is purely a state of mind as far as I'm concerned..without reservations that is...

tally ho!

Reading this thread I am struck by how it has descended into pettiness. Even dragging in some of our more respected and usually thoughtful members.

The fact is that we don't really know what the producers are thinking/planning/promising. All we know is that they are going to try to produce a show to get the biggest ratings they can. And they are going to choose the performers whom they think will garner them those ratings. Period.

All the rest is commentary.

I am reserving my opinion of the show until it debuts. I will be rooting for one or two contestants that I know.

I really hope this results in a positive spin for working magicians/mentalists.

Bob,

I would say in many respects it is speculation of what might be in the big box with the bow.

I also can see were some guys might be riled if they took the trip and then found out it was not an even playing feild.
Some were allready on the team just becouse of who they know, etc.

Who would not be?

J ack:

I agree. I suppose this is one of the frustrations of show business. It's never a level playing field. When my son was acting in TV commercials, we learned that the SAG and AFTRA contracts require that there be open auditions even when the commercial or TV show or movie was already virtually cast. (Note Alexandre's comments above.)

And I, too, would be annoyed if I later found out that the deck was stacked against me. Of course, we don't know if the Israeli guys were on board from the beginning, or were brought in later to add variety, or what.

Best,

Bob

Tell me about it, my daughter was in modeling for a few years (print and commercial).
