The field of over 400 women has been narrowed down to the final 70, all with hopes of becoming a member of the 2010 world-famous 49ers Gold Rush presented by Coors Light. All the ladies have gone through two rounds of preliminary auditions on Sunday, a practice on Monday and interviews Wednesday night. Tonight, they will all be asked to perform their routine one more time in addition to a dance they choreographed themselves.
Stay tuned to the blog all throughout the evening for photos.
The judges just had their meeting to go over how the scoring process will work and what they will be looking for when ultimately selecting the squad.
“As a judge, I’m looking for someone who is just going to wow the fans at the stadium,” said Gold Rush director Erin Olmstead. “We want someone who is going to bring some extra energy to their performance. They’ve all been practicing really hard. It’s going to be tough to pull out the standouts, but that’s my job tonight.”
Even the veterans from previous squads have to audition as well and even though they’ve been through this process before, it doesn’t minimize the nerves. Their experience does help them though during the routine that they had to choreograph on their own.
“I’m using some of my old stuff (from past routines),” Johanna said, a former Gold Rush member who had to take last year off. “I have to get that in there. The funny thing is that when you practice it over and over, it automatically changes because you want to put so much into it. Hopefully it come out well.”
