Do you watch The Dr. Phil Show and think to yourself, “I have a story to tell” or “I could be that person on stage”? If so, the opportunity is yours. Just remember: being a part of the show is never guaranteed and if you are part of the show, you – and your story – will be shared with millions of people.

If you still want to be a guest on The Dr. Phil Show, follow these simple steps.

Difficulty: Easy
Time Required: 30 mins

Here's How:

  3. Click through the topic and fill out the guest application.
