Thank you all again for applying and sharing your amazing stories & talents with us. This has truly been a blast and we expect a great season. P.S. Semi-Finalists won't be picked until the end of next week or the following week (around July 10th to July 14th). There will be no announcements (postings etc) regarding our picks since this is strictly confidential and off limits to discuss. Thanks again, NGB Casting Team

That's fairly common practice I've learned from the casting aspect of things.

sechrestloans...what do you mean by ....That's fairly common practice I've learned from the casting aspect of things.....im sorry but you left me stunned...and im thinking to myself...huh???...maybe you mean that that happens with casting...they ask for applicants and when they get them they cant even respond back and say a simple...im sorry but you werent chosen please try again...as if everyone that applied didnt take time to do what they asked for and get their hopes up...i just think that a simple reply back saying you werent chosen would be appropriate but then again thats me...again to all applicants who did make the semi finalists...GOOOOOOODDDDDDD LLLUUUCCKKKK....

Nancy,

Please read the above post, it was not me that said it is fairly common practice in casting. All I did was copy what was on their facebook page and put it on the board and express my disappointment that I wasnt chosen.

Nancv, I don't think the semi-finalist have been notified. Those that do make it, will be notified probably after this weekend as someone was told further upthread.

I don't know of any competition where the ones not chosen got notified...I mean, I can't think of any at this time anyway.

The reply you got was basically the same as was posted on fb regarding who will be notified (I thought it was another CCer that posted it icon_redface.gif )

no worries! I am in the same boat as you, at least you got to talk to Julie, she has yet to respond to me at all..LOL It would be nice if they could at least make a general posting like all semi finalists have been picked so we know for sure it is over, but thats life I suppose. There is so much talent out there, I wish the best for all who do make it.

Have you (anyone who has entered) thought seriously about what your reaction would be if selected? I think I'd throw up!

I Wouldn't believe it. I would think my husband is playing a practical joke on me before I believed I really got picked LOL

I hear ya.. something tells me they fell asleep watching mine...LOL I almost did!! After re taping 5 times because I had no idea how to get the videos uploaded and accidentally deleting them, and had 2 wedding cakes due within the 48 hours time period AND each video taking 3 hours plus to upload onto you tube... I think anyone that actually was able to get a video onto you tube should go to NY to be a semi finalts because that was a challenge in itself ... especially for us old folks that computer illiterate..LOL
