Esports Reality TV Show For $100,000 Announced

Cable television these days is almost exclusively two things: reruns of old shows and reality TV. The gaming industry is about to tap deep into the latter. Peach Maria Productions has released a casting call for “amateur” gamers hoping their hobby can become a career through an Esports reality TV show. The press release declares:

“Selected amateur gamers — from across the United States — will compete for a chance to fulfill their wildest video-gaming dreams as they compete to win software, hardware, the glory of being crowned champion, and more — including a $100,000 grand prize. In addition, the winner will receive a one-year engagement as a traveling, gaming ambassador among the world of professional esports.”

Of course, with every opportunity like this comes some stipulations and rules. The company is accepting video auditions in the form of a video reel, and anybody who has “competed in professional play” will not be considered. Applicants must be between the ages of 15 and 80, be willing to travel to Atlanta (on the producers’ dime) for up to 35 days, and be okay with 24-hour surveillance of your actions the entire time. Perhaps it’s not a bad price to pay for a shot at $100,000… that is, if you get $100,000 upon winning. The “Eligibility Guidelines” state that the producers or the network reserve the right to change this amount at any time, but that won’t happen, right?

If this has you written all over it, the deadline to apply is Friday, July 19, 2019, at 11:59 PM EST. The show will be filmed in late July and throughout August of this year.

Esports has grown extensively over the past few years, giving gamers jobs in an industry they love. This is another example of rewarding the talent of gamers across the globe financially. While behind a lot of these companies and competitions is a desire to make money off of the latest trend in gaming, it’s hard to deny the opportunities Esports has opened up for the world.
