The Tester

11 gamers compete for the lowest spot on the gaming industry totem pole. Hilarity is sure to ensue!

The Tester is a new reality series from Sony debuting February 18th on the PlayStation Network. I just checked out the trailer this morning, mainly wondering if it was a sequel to Grandma's Boy.

"The Tester" is a new original reality series set to debut exclusively on PlayStation®Network. The eight episode series features 11 avid gamers competing in a series of physical and mental elimination challenges to win an actual job as an official PlayStation® game tester along with a $5000 signing bonus.

This looks like it could be good for some laughs, especially with Hal Sparks as one of the panelists (*HEART*) and shameless exploitation of surely every gamer stereotype in the book (my favorite snippet: when the hot chick at the elimination ceremony starts tearfully proclaiming that she "May not look like most gamers..." No wait. my favorite snippet: pouring beer into Apple Jacks for breakfast - "Who wants beerios?" NICE)

But wait, I see tons of ads for video game testers on HotJobs all the time. Surely they can't be that hard to get. Not as easy as secret shoppers or survey filler-outers, but come on, it's a booming industry!
