Raghu Ram and Rajiv Laxman, the creators of Roadies, have left the show in 2014. They told the media that they wanted to give chance to the new generation to carry forward the show and they have done enough to popularise the show.
The auditions of this reality TV show were conducted by popular VJ's like Raghu Ram, Nikhil Chinapa and Rajiv Laxman. From 12th season onwards, the auditions are conducted by Rannvijay Singh, Vijender Singh, Karan Kundra and Esha Deol.
The applicants are first asked to fill out a form and then attend a Group Discussion (GD). The form consists of basic questions regarding the applicant and includes some questions like "Why do you want to be a Roadie?" and "What is the greatest regret of your life?" etc.
Moderators watch the performance of all the applicants in this GD and then they shortlist some people who are called on the next day for the Personal Interview round.
This personal interview takes place with some of the above-mentioned VJ's. And These interviews are known to be intense and try to bring out the true nature of the participant. These interviews often have abusive language and the interviewers don't like applicants who have lied on the application form. The interviewers always stress on not lying in the application form and showing who they really are, instead of portraying a false personality in front of them.
The fifth season was the first time when an "Advantage task" was introduced. The winner of the "Advantage task" gets some advantage in the vote out, which may multiple votes or being the only one(s) to vote. There are also some "Karizma Tasks" which can also be one of the other tasks. Due to lack of budget, the contestants were given Hero Impulse bikes instead of Hero Karizma and also the tradition of shooting few episodes abroad was also discontinued. But the seasons kept coming one after the other.
