“The W Network is the leading specialty network for women” according to their website, however I know that plenty of men watch the channel too. Nonetheless, they had conducted an open call for video submissions to become the next W Network Expert Host. My girlfriend called me after hearing about it on the radio on the way to work and told me to audition. So I did! :)
Open Call For The Next Expert Host
The Expert Host Challenge is trying to find a new expert host for the network, in what capacity I don’t specifically know – I imagine it will depend on who the winner is and if they are good enough to warrant their own program or to just serve as a sporadic guest expert on some existing shows. They asked for submissions from any field of expertise (financial planning, gardening, fitness, etc.).
How The Contest Works
Step 1. People submit videos that demonstrate their expertise and personality. (This part is done)
Step 2. Viewers vote on the videos, and based on the results and the opinions of the network judges, 20 finalists are chosen who must then complete a further video assignment. (This is the part we are at right now)
Step 3. The final 20 competitors will get voted on and a Final 6 will be chosen who then compete in a reality mini-series about finding the next expert host. Winner appears on the W Network as an expert host.
I’ve submitted my video and it was designed to be a bit cheesy, and I hope it stands out from the others. You can vote for it by clicking on the stars under the video (the one furthest to the right is a “5 out of 5″). You can also leave your name and a comment if you like – that would probably help out more than just a vote for any of the videos you vote on if you choose to do so.
By all means, vote for anyone you like. You might like my blog, but you might think I’d make a terrible TV host! :)
I’ll Keep You Posted…
I’ll keep you guys updated on how things go. The first stage of voting lasts until October 26th and they will decide on the final 20 on Hallowe’en. Wish me luck and thanks in advance to anyone who votes for me!
