Couples who think they should be part of the Sonia Kruger reality show are invited to the casting session opposite Customs House on Quay Street for two hours from 10.30am Wednesday.
Selected couples will get the “celebrity treatment” including make up, hair, fashion and fitness consultancy.
Applicants don’t have to be married but they do need to be in a long-term, meaningful relationship.
“It’s important to note this show is not about humiliation,” said producer Monique Spanbrook. “It’s about taking two people who devote their lives to each other and giving them 10 days to devote totally to themselves.”
The prize package was worth more than $20,000 for each couple, and could be much more if the experts thought it was appropriate to carry out mild surgical procedures including Botox injections.
Producers have picked Rockhampton because people in country areas “don’t always have access to facilities to keep themselves looking their best”. 30 couples turned up for casting sessions in Dubbo.
