FAQ

What is the minimum requirement?

Applicants must be at least 18 years of age by Oct 1, 2018 to apply.

Do I have to live in Seattle to be considered?

No, you can be from anywhere. That said, you should be familiar with the Seattle area and have a friend network that knows this town inside and out, and are able to recommend experiences that will give you the best Seattle has to offer.

Will I be contacted whether or not I make it to the next round?

Due to the large number of applicants, we are unable to contact every person who applies. If you do not hear from us by Oct 25, 2018, unfortunately you did not make it into the finals for the next round this season.

What will happen when I'm on the houseboat?

Over the course of the two weeks, you will live off the recommendations of your friends and the Likewise community. Food and entertainment will be delivered by sea kayak. Some celebrities might drop in. Basically, be ready for anything safe, fun and unexpected.

What kind of person are we looking for?

We are probably looking for you. We’re looking for a person who loves life and will love living it through Likewise. We’re expecting to find someone who wants to experience new things, who is really social and recommends experiences because she loves them, someone who is authentically socially engaged and cannot wait to experience more of Seattle by way of the recommendations of their involved and active social network.

Can I bring my dog on the houseboat?

We love pets, but we are limiting this to small dogs under 20 pounds.

When are you filming?

Currently, we are tentatively scheduling filming from 10/25-11/8 give or take a few days. It will be live, so everyone will see you on day one.

What is your exact requirements/expectations?

Honestly, we don’t have anything exact. We want this to be as organic as possible. We expect you to go along with what the community recommends. We expect you’ll share this adventure on you social media channels just as you would share everyday life, but this will be anything but. We expect you’ll live this experiment on Likewise and your friends will engage with you there because, well, that’s why we built it. We are sure our lucky someone will want to craft the experience to their likes and dislikes. So we’re obviously game for that. Truly, we’re up for anything. 

Will I be filmed the entire time?

No. You will be required to appear on a live stream 3-4 times a day for no more than 30 min a time. There will likely be instances where it’s most convenient to film with your personal device to create some social content. But this isn’t that kind of reality show. It’s more checking in than living under a microscope.

Is this a contest?

It is not. It’s a casting session and live performance. But we don’t need you to act. We need you to be you, and have a fantastic time doing it.

Can I have visitors?

Sorta. We really want you to treat this like the world’s greatest desert island, so although there will be an opportunity or two where we’ll have you invite friends over or meet them out for a night, it’s not supposed to be an apartment where folks just drop by. We want to see what it’s like living on their recommendations vs. living out the recommendations with them.
