Be a chef. Or just play one on TV.

There are no secrets to getting yourself cast on a reality TV cooking show.

You need to check a few websites to learn about open casting calls and applications for auditions. Often this information is posted with very short notice, so check regularly and often. Most casting notices are posted on either Reality TV Casting Calls or Reality Wanted.

Follow instructions. Only apply if you meet the show’s requirements. Adhere to deadlines.

Cultivate a screen persona. Give the show’s producers a few personality traits or quirks to latch onto. You don’t need to stray from your true self so much as pump it up a bit.
