Fans of "Big Brother" now have their chance to audition for the hit CBS reality competition.

The Mall of America in Bloomington will be hosting a casting call for the 15th season of the show Saturday from 1 to 4 p.m. in the mall rotunda.

Among those at the casting call will be "Big Brother" contestant and Grand Rapids native Janelle Pierzina, who first competed on Season 6.

Being named "America’s Favorite Player" on the show, Pierzina also competed on Season 7's "Big Brother All-Stars" competition, finishing third, and also returned for Season 14.

The show follows a group of strangers living with each other in the same house while multiple cameras record their every move and sound 24 hours a day, seven days a week, as they vie for the top prize of $500,000.

Applicants can also submit their audition online.

Pierzina will also sign autographs at the event.

See a video of Pierzina in a "Big Brother" backyard interview after Season 14 below.
