Just for fun comparison....
About 6,000 people applied to be on the first Survivor. There were roughly 49,000 for the second series. Who Wants to Be a Millionaire takes thousands of applicants each day.
So, compare that with our 3000 applicants. Odds are much better to be on JYW (which is a MUCH better show anyway, short the part of winning a million dollars)

Yes, but you have to remember: Of the shows you've mentioned, JYW probably has a much smaller production and office staff (and a coorespondingly smaller budget). It might put the odds in your favor getting on the show- if you don't go nuts with the waiting. (Check out some of the other threads on this site.) I'd say you may want to get on "Millionaire" just to pass the time until Junk Yard Wars calls you back. (You can use the money to buy tools!)
