The Tester Season 2 Casting Call, Upload A Profile Now

If you didn't get a chance to realize your dream of becoming a video game tester in the first season, here's another chance.

The second season of the PlayStation Network original program, "The Tester," is on the horizon, and you have a chance to become one of the contestants. Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA) has teamed up with GotCast.com and 51 Minds Entertainment to provide you with a casting challenge: this nationwide competition invites gamers to submit a video profile (kinda like what would-be "Real World" participants did) and explain your game testing desires. In addition, there will be a new interactive community that allows family, friends and fans to vote on cast submissions; in other words, you better make a good profile because you'll need the support of everyone who sees it! Submissions have opened today, so feel free to sign up and upload photos, videos and even short written statements explaining why you want to be a part of "The Tester" Season 2. The deadline is July 16, 2010 so make sure you get the materials together soon. Obviously, if you happen to win, your reward will be a position as a PlayStation game tester.

Head on over to the show's official site and sign up now for your shot at a dream job! ...just don't scare people in the video.

Are you female? Otherwise, I don't think you'll have much of a chance.

And again Canadians can not enter. I really don't understand why this is exclusive to Americans. It's not like people in other countries aren't willing to re-locate.

TONS of issues with hiring a person who is not a US citizen.

Pain in the a$$ not worth the trouble when you have 100 capable people knocking at the door.

If you are already legally authorized to work in the country, then I guess you already took care of those issues.

The only problem with companies doing adds like this and having ppl vote, is that you get tons of unqualified people who apply and it becomes more difficult sometimes to find someone worthy of being there at all.

I hope they make the format more fair, because the stupid weekly elimination model is bollocks. Also, the challenges should be more representative of the requirements of the job (some were good, others not so much).

I mostly watched it hoping Jaffe would say something outrageous. No such luck.

I thought the first season of Tester was a huge fail.

IMO, most of the challenges were lame & more better suited towards the old Gong Show, and not for any gaming show.

And the panel wasn't much better, a bunch of stick figure handpuppets could have done a better job(and yes, I include Jaffe in there too).


But I do have to say the host Meredith was looking her usual fine self.
She just needs to go back to long hair again & I'd go all lesbian on her, quick, fast, and in a MF'n hurry!!!!

I watched some of the episodes, I was surprised Star made it as far as she did, it seems like somehow or another she was always one of the worst performers...

... yet she didn't get eliminated until the end.

Seems to me being dead last in performance for 3 rounds should be auto-elimination, but I guess she was on her own 7 strikes rule.

Sign:

Bad guy 1 tells bad guy 2 to go and mug the old lady.
Bad guy 2 says man I think thats a bad idea.
Bad guy #1 slaps Bad guy 2 in the face and tells Bad guy # 2 to go and mug the old Lady in the truck.

Bad Guy #2 places a huge bar of soap inside a towel to use as a sap and walks up to the old lady in the truck and says hey, hey ,hey give me all your money.
The Old Lady goes Hey, hey, Hey!!! and shows a huge knife Crockadile Dundy type in one hand and slaps bad guy 2 in the face and takes the towel and bar of soap.

Bad guy 2 walks back to car and tells bad guy 1 that the old lady had a huge knife.
Bad guy 1 says you idiot and slaps bad guy 2 in the face.
Bad guy 1 gives bad guy 2 a gun and says thats a .25 caliber handgun now go and get that old ladys stuff.

Bad guy 2 goes yeah .25 caliber handgun and walks up to old ladys truck and says hey,hey ,hey!
Old Lady smiles and says hey, hey, hey!! and shows bad guy 2 a .38 caliber large hand gun and slaps Bad Guy 2 in the face and takes away the .25 caliber handgun.

Bad Guy 2 walks dejectedly back to the car and when Bad Guy 1 learns that bad guy 2 lost the .25 caliber handgun:
Bad Guy 1 says you moron! and slaps bad guy 2 in the face and says here! this! is a .357 Magnum! its what Charles Bronson uses so now go and get that Old Ladys stuff!
