UNCASVILLE, CT (WFSB) -

Fans of The Amazing Race may be excited to learn of a casting call happening Wednesday.

It's taking place at Mohegan Sun in Uncasville.

WFSB will be holding the open casting call from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.

Folks were lined up several hours in advance.

"We were here at 4:45 in the morning," said John and Ali Durham of Griswold. "Yeah, we were here before anyone was setting anything up also. There was nobody to tell us where to go, we just sat down."

As far as competing together for an extended length of time, many couples told Eyewitness News that they were up to the challenge.

"We've been together [for some time]," said Milagros Marin of New York City and Erin McNeill of Long Island. "Yeah, it'll just be hysterical I think, more or less.We just always have a good time, so it'll be a good time."
