If you want to apply to take part in a new TV project (over 18s only) then go to http://bit.ly/I9oMoL
No more info.
Can I still apply if I turn 18 by July? 😀
I’ve never been able to coplete one of these application surveys, I always get stuck when asked about my greatest achievments, fears and hobbies.
Timo sun pitäs asua täällä ukssa kun ei derren varmaan suomeen lähde, you would have to live here in the UK as I don’t thing derren will go to Finland with his show. Have applied now so fingers crossed
Can’t get past page 3! Says I’ve put too much writing in a box, but even if I only put one character in the box it still won’t send. Getting stressed Can’t even go back to save my previous answers! Can anyone point me to contact information? x
Msg from Abeo: See my comment below
This message keeps coming up when i try to submit the form, I’m definitely not over the word limit on any of my answer though – “There was a problem with your submission.
We were unable to edit entry #4594. This usually occurs when too much text has been entered into paragraph fields. Please try to trim your entry, or contact our support department.” Any Suggestions please?
Peter and Becky, I had the same problem, got to page 3 and cut down the answers ridiculously short and they still wouldn’t work! I’m hoping its fixed, I spent ages on it and then lost it trying to to get it to go to page 4. hope it gets fixed!
Was feeling impulsive yesterday when I saw this ad!! Very smiley today!!
Timo: There’s a drop-down menu on the form that lets you select your country, so I’m assuming it’s not British-only.
After clicking ‘Next’ on Page 3 it says:
Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage
What you can try:
It appears you are connected to the Internet, but you might want to try to reconnect to the Internet.
Retype the address.
Go back to the previous page.
Most likely causes:
•You are not connected to the Internet.
•The website is encountering problems.
•There might be a typing error in the address.
What can I do???
Msg from Abeo: Sounds like your internet connection keeps dropping out?
Mark, I filled it out in Firefox yesterday and it worked perfectly fine. Maybe you need to try opening it in another browser? If that doesn’t work, Abeo provided a link to the people who support it just a few posts up.
Thanks Abeo! <3 When's the deadline? x
I ran into the same problems as everybody else, but there is a solution. When Derren is involved, I’m not going to assume that the “problems” were not somehow deliberate, so I’m not about to state my solution. I will say that I am worthless with computers and that it took me an extra few hours to implement. Good luck to all!
Am I the only one who became a little concerned when getting to the next of kin question? What is Derren planning to do with us?
I would recommend to everyone that they save their answers in a Word document as they go along just in case the thing crashes. Just finished redo-ing my entire application. Good luck to all!
There was a problem with your submission.
We were unable to edit entry #5965. This usually occurs when too much text has been entered into paragraph fields. Please try to trim your entry, or contact our support department.
WHAT IS HAPPENING.
do you have to be 18 now or sometime this year?
I recently submitted my application but need to withdraw it, how can I do this?
Msg from Abeo: email email@example.com
I’ve been having the same problems with the word limits even though my answers are way below the limits said. I got in touch with the wufoo people and they came back with:
“Hi Kathy, sounds like there’s an issue with the form or perhaps the form is reaching the storage limit. Please contact the person or organization that has sent you this form and let them know of this issue. They’ll need to contact us directly for support at http://wufoo.com/support so that we can access their account and form setup.
Not sure what to do next?
I get same problem here, the form gives an error saying one of my answers has too much text but the available character/word count is well below the limit!
the link to Wufoo isnt much help….what exactly are we supposed to do?
I can’t get past page 3 it says I used too many words.
I emailed the form provider and they said I may have reached the max for the for as some times if there are lots of paragraphs it fills up and said to contact the company the form relates to.
Any one else managed to submit yet.
Any further help with this please Abeo? I’m having the same problem after spending ages filling it out. The link you provided is just the main webpage and it’s not clear how we can get support through it.
Woohoo a new TV project! Cannot wait. I hope this one really shows us something we haven’t seen before.
Same issue as some of the people above!
“There was a problem with your submission.
We were unable to edit entry #6572. This usually occurs when too much text has been entered into paragraph fields. Please try to trim your entry, or contact our support department.”
Wufoo haven’t got back to me! Can I email the application to you?
Just wondering if there is any way of changing Information on an application form for the new show??
I keep getting the error:
There was a problem with your submission.
We were unable to edit entry #6608. This usually occurs when too much text has been entered into paragraph fields. Please try to trim your entry, or contact our support department.
I have not filled any boxes too much and have trimmed like crazy. I contacted the Wufoo support desk and they said that this was not an issue they could deal with and said that it would be supported by whomever made the questionnaire.
What should I do?
Me again. I e-mailed wufoo using your link but they directed me straight back to you guys….??
Any other likely exclusions? for example, I have a mild disability that limits some physical activities.
I’m having the same problems. Wufoo not being particularly heplful either, and I’ve lost everything after hours spent
I would love to talk to u about your ability, please if possible can you email me.
on my 4th attempt i got my application filled, kept losing connection….felt a bit stupid repeating the info every attempt…particularly if you were trying to be light hearted, got heavier each attempt….felt like putting ‘tenatious slash obsessive’ in section describing self based on the 4th attempt drama…maybe its a selection technique – oh ch#*t i’m getting paranoid already!
On the final page, I had the same “unable to edit entry #7145” issue. I’ve contacted wufoo as suggested and their lightning fast response was…
“You have reached the support desk of Wufoo.com, a company that helps people easily create web forms to collect information over the internet. You may be trying to contact someone who has used our services, but you would need to contact them directly with any questions or comments you may have.”
What can you suggest, Abeo?
We’ve been in contact with Wufoo (the people who run the forms) and they’ve made a few suggestions which we are trying.
Please have another go and let us know if it’s still failing, I’d strongly suggest keeping your answers in a word/text document as you go along in case the same happens again.
I’d also suggest perhaps trying with another browser (such as Google Chrome).
If it does fail again, can you email me letting us know which browser – firstname.lastname@example.org
Rather than stuggle with the form, may we simply mail you our answers? It’s the information that’s the important thing rather than the method of delivery?
Msg from Abeo: I’ll find out
Hello, this isn’t a comment on this post as such. I would like to subscribe to this blog, so I get notified when there are new entries. However, when I click, on any post, on the ‘Subscribe’ word and icon at the top right of the post, I am instead directed to the comments. Would be very grateful if you could tell me how to get round this – or simply use the email address I have given and subscribe me straightaway. As there doesn’t appear to be a ‘Contact Us’ section on the blog, I’m not sure where else to mention this. Thanks,
Msg from Abeo: Hi Nick, I’ve popped you an email
using google chrome and still getting error message 7776.

Is it strange to anyone else that we’re getting a four digit error message which changes for each person? or is it randomly assigned to each application form?
I’m so close to finishing the application! When does it end officially?
I need 1 more friend’s agreement to use their name and number!..
I just want to know how long I have!!
YAY! I got the last friend to say yes!
My application went in fine for me on the first go and I used mozilla firefox (the latest version)
finally submitted with slightly shorter answers than i would of liked but fingers crossed anyway.
Waay haay. Thankyou very much, my form has submitted 😀
Hello,I’d just like to say wow,it’s taken just a matter of series to influence and inspire me for my life ahead,I’m only fourteen but your my idol and I aspire to be like you,I want to study psychology,sociology and just learn about human behaviour,where do I start?
I figured I’d comment for attention
Some of the form do not match with the description below them.
For instance on the last page there is a box underneath the question ‘what made you apply for this show?’
It says that you have 200 words for that question. I made all the questions in words (because the first time the browser crashed and I lost all my entries) and when I paste the answer of 112 word into the box it gets cut-off after 47 words or something. This probably was the case in other questions as wel.
What to do now??
Just applied. So excited for the new show 😀
I applied a while ago and now I’m regretting it! Just watched the episode of trick or treat where they made this poor girl witness her own death in a car accidnt and she actually thought she was dead and looking down over her own body. I don’t want something like that to happen to me!! Scared!
I submitted the application form but forgot to fill in one of the questions. The question had a red star next to it so I’m not sure why it let me submit my application. Anyway, should I resubmit it with all the questions answered? Is that ok? I’m not trying to apply twice. Is there another way to get that answer to where ever it needs to go? Thanks.
Going to be Paranoid for ages now until something happens! ^_^ Good Luck all!
I kind of want to fill it out, but I’m worried Derren will put my Brain in a jar or something. although then I get to find out how Morbius felt so that’d be an experience.
is it ok for me to enter if im 18 in 6 years or not
I always think of the woman in the bag having to do an escapology act under the water, or the poor guy who seemed inoffensive but earned the role of a performer;s dummy. Youth can survive such without demur, and the girl who drove inattentively was seized by her own “accident” which evokes fears of being unable to act but only perceive some sort of degradation. Yet, and yet, to achieve anything, so much of Derrens work mimics the real world where one learns from trauma. I just hope this stays in the world of a slap ot punch in the face rather than the world of torture others write about so evasively. Some have the resilience to suffer and learn, or suffer and teach, but I am closer to the world of the lazy, feckless, unable to commit sap who, when the first pains of birth begin, feints.
you are soo amazing !!!!! i have GOT TO MEET YOU !! at some piont in my life ,, it would be the biggest highlight of my life ever to meet you lol … i watch evrysingle one of your shows !! haha from maisie x
I’d like to withdraw my application. How do I do this?
Msg from Abeo: Email me on email@example.com
YAY! I got the last friend to say yes!
Eve if you check one of the previous posts there is an email you can use to withdraw
Is this opportunity still there or is it over. I’ve some theater experience also but did not know about this opportunity earlier. If its still open I would be keen.
It’d be great to participate in the show or see it live.. Based on these comments, Derren you have a large and secret fangroup in Finland which is ironic because they don’t even air your show here 😀 You should tour here, most of the people are fluent in English.
I’m having the same trouble with the application form as everyone above. Spent forever on it making it the best i could and i’m devastated it’s not working. On page 4 it won’t let me write more than a word without coming up with ‘there was a problem with your submission’! It won’t be worth sending if i have to cut my answers as much as it wants. There was a comment above that asked if we could email you our answers, you said you’d find out. It would be much easier if that was possible, could you reply and let me know? I’d be very thankful. It’s just i’m freaking out in case the application closes, I’ve been waiting so long to catch an open application for one of Derren’s shows. For me it’s failing on an aol browser,
will try filling it out on other browsers.
Would love the experience. Really would.
you are soo amazing !!!!! i have GOT TO MEET YOU !! at some piont in my life ,, it would be the biggest highlight of my life ever to meet you lol … i watch evrysingle one of your shows !! haha from maisie
Hi id love to take part in derrens new show thats my dream to experience it live will mean a lot cheers
im doing this for my hubby as he loves your shows, also how do I get to see you live? Im rubbish with pc’s lol
Too bad people need to sign/approve .. in a way … The good ones never end up in Derren’s show this way. A few crossed my mind … mouth wathering .. fireworks in my mind (you know that feeling?) … Oh well .. not that we dont understand but we can dream … can we ..
Nope, not me in the show, not recommended.
Can i sign up if i am 18 next year in September? I will be 17 this year, in September. Or do i have to be 18 already to even consider signing up? Thank you, Sarah.
This show is super funny and I’m really upset I just found out about it. I’ve missed out on applying and it really stinks!
Hello, I shall be 18 at the start of June next year. I would love to do something like this, however due to my age and the specific requirements of having to be 18 am I able to apply now or do you have to be 18 to even sign up?
Msg from Abeo: Applications are now closed.
