All semi-finalists must have a valid United States passport.

Applicants who are selected as contestants cannot be candidates for public office until after the initial broadcast of all programs in which they appear.

Beyond these basic qualifications and any additional qualifications set forth in the application, we are looking for a diverse group of men and women who represent a broad cross-section of American society. Our competitors will be in good physical health.

The prize for this competition is $1 million, but this prize money will not come easily. Our competitors must be willing to commit to traveling to remote locations for approximately four weeks. Contestants will be filmed up to 24 hours a day by television camera crews to be broadcast on national television. This is reality television. They will be traveling to different countries competing in challenges against other teams under sometimes difficult and unfamiliar conditions.
