Tryouts will be held in Puerto Rico, Miami and Los Angeles later this month, and the show is accepting audition tapes.

The 20 finalists are scheduled to be announced in early December. They will live in Miami Beach for several months for coaching and “image transformations” to get ready for the weekly program.
