These auditions happened just a few days after the 1st callbacks. At this point, it was clear this was not an ordinary process. Usually an actor sees many fewer other actors at each stage of callbacks as most have been eliminated from the process. But clearly many of the same people from the first auditions were still auditioning, so the callbacks didn’t appear to really be eliminating anyone. It would later become clear these were really more interviews than auditions and would become much of the core of Casting JonBenet.
