Season II leaves behind the classic reality TV show format in favor of a much more modern and exciting approach
(PRWEB) March 2, 2007
Taking its cue from the success of Bodog's Battle of the Bands submission process that saw over 7,000 competitors enter, Calvin Ayre Wild Card Poker will feature a user-generated content aspect in casting its second season.
For a chance to become one of 11 players in the 12-person cast of Calvin Ayre Wild Card Poker II, in line to win a record-setting $2 million, reality TV hopefuls can go to http://www.bodoglife.com/poker/wild-card-poker/season-02/ to upload an audition video. All videos will be screened by Bodoglife.com and the 11 winners will be privately contacted. The cut-off date for video submissions is April 28, so players should get their videos in quick to be on the path to living the life of a millionaire!
Calvin Ayre Wild Card Poker, which set ratings highs in its time slot last year, was full of action and saw poker pro Josh Arieh walk away with the $500,000 grand prize. Though still in development, Season II is quickly shaping up to be bigger and better. With a shot at poker superstardom and the largest prize in reality TV history - $2 million - up for grabs, the second season of the hit series is guaranteed to draw wide audiences.
"Season II leaves behind the classic reality TV show format in favor of a much more modern and exciting approach," said Calvin Ayre, the show's host and founder of Bodoglife.com. "Bodog is one of the most respected brands in the digital entertainment industry and is known for its innovation and creativity and we have set out to take the industry to a whole new level. Calvin Ayre Wild Card Poker Season II will be the first and only show of its kind to reward today's social networkers with the chance to earn spots on the show and walk away with a cool $2 million grand prize."
For those less inclined to audition on video, poker players can join in on one or more of the 30 qualifying poker tournaments on Bodoglife.com. Qualifying tournaments run every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday at 9:05 EST and have an entry fee of $5 0.50, or 300 Bodog Poker points. The top five of each qualifying tournament will go on to battle it out in the final tournament on April 28. The top five of the final tournament will score big, but only the winner will get to fill one of the coveted 12 spots as a contestant on Calvin Ayre Wild Card Poker II, effectively earning a 1-in-12 shot at the $2 million grand prize and poker superstardom.
Calvin Ayre Wild Card Poker II will begin filming in the coming months and will air later this year on ION Television in the U.S. (which reaches 93 million homes), as well as globally, and on BodogTV.
