KQED is seeking guests for Season 5 of Check, Please! Bay Area. Potential reviewers who would like to tell the Bay Area about their favorite local eatery–anything from a four-star destination to your local café or street food from a traveling truck–are encouraged to complete the online application. Applications must be received by Thursday, January 21, 2010.
Please note that in order to appear on the show, guests must be at least 21 years old, and be willing to travel to and participate in a taping at KQED studios in San Francisco. The taping will take place on a weekday in late February and last a few hours. Those chosen to be a guest on Check, Please! Bay Area must also be able to get to the KQED studio at their own expense, and to travel to any restaurant location within a 50-mile radius of San Francisco. The shows will air on KQED 9HD as part of the fifth season of Check, Please! Bay Area, beginning in May 2010.
