A leading media group based out of the Basque country is searching for a unique contestant to take a once-in-a-lifetime trip back to the homeland... but only if they've never been there before.

EITB (Euskal Irrati Telebista) is casting  their reality show titled, “It’s All About Origin". They plan to bring the winner to the Basque territory, and expose them to the locations, tastes, sights and smells that are Basque, and possibly introduce them to distant relatives. 

The blogger who first alerted 6 On Your Side about the contest is Boise resident Henar Chico who runs “A Basque in Boise,” Her blog is officially sanctioned by EITB, and is carried by their website. They alerted her to the casting.

It’s a unique opportunity for the right person.

“It is unlike any other feeling especially if you have that connection of family, said Executive Director of the Basque Museum and Cultural Center Annie Gavica. "I absolutely feel the person who goes there for the first time is in for an excellent time,"
