Wow, anyone or anything really can get its own TV series. Sony just announced The Tester, a reality show following 11 hopefuls for the ultimate gamer dream job: PlayStation 3 game tester.
Hosted by model Meredith Molinari,The Tester is being developed and produced by the same minds who brought us gems like The Surreal Life and Rock of Love. So you can only guess how classy this is going to be.
For eight weeks, contestants will have to endure mental and physical challenges which are sure to be humiliating, embarrassing and entertaining - all for that special job and a $5,000 signing bonus. Just for a taste, some of those challenges will include giant slingshots and rolling around in human hamster balls. (I don't know if there is a job out there that I'd be willing to be flung from a giant slingshot.)
So for anyone dying to see this show, mark your calendars for Thursday, February 18 on the PlayStation Network. (Check your local listings and TiVos for showtimes.)
