● How familiar are you with this reality show The Tester?
I have been watching The Tester Seasons One and Two. I’ve gotten a chance to know a good bit of the cast from both seasons; they’re really cool! It’s really great to see the transition from on screen to off screen and seeing the personalities behind the people. It’s definitely something awesome that I was able to experience.
● For those members on PSTALENT that aren’t familiar with the Tester, how would you describe it to them?
I would describe The Tester as PlayStation fans getting crazy, dirty, and having fun. It’s not your normal reality TV show. There is some drama but not a whole lot. I’m hoping that Season Three creates more drama. If I get picked to be on the cast, I will definitely make sure that there is more drama. LOL. It makes for good TV. For those people that haven’t seen the prior seasons, they should definitely check it out. It should be free on the PlayStation Store.
● What ultimately led to the decision of auditioning for The Tester?
I want to be in the video game industry and I thought that this is a really good avenue to do so. It’s good to put yourself out there, so the industry can see your talents. It is also a great platform to get yourself noticed. You have to go out and go for it, it’s a really tough industry, like a dog eats dog world. You have to make sure people see you and recognize you. Even if you don’t win, it will still open up doors for you to move up.
● What would you recommend to those of the site that are shy but dreams about being on a show?
With anything you just have to take a chance, and be outside of your comfort zone. Take the initiative and put yourself out there in any way that makes you uncomfortable. Hone in all of your strength and glory and show yourself. Find out what you’re good at.
● I wanted to ask: What are you most nervous about?
In a way, I think about what if they don’t like me, and they don’t like what I do. It’s not a really huge fear of mine. I guess I also think what if I make an ass of myself. Because you will see that on reality shows. Some people show their true colors when they don’t want to show their true colors and they make a total ass of themselves. You just have to go with the flow and what happens happen, and you really can’t have any regrets. If you have that in mind, then you won’t have any fears of messing up because you’re okay with what you do. There will always be some people that won’t like you.
● We know DOD is a big fan of yours, he was proud to have you as an actor with Aliens Vs. Androids, which won Best Picture and nothing would make him prouder than to see you as a contestant. How can the members of PSTALENT support you in winning the title of the Tester?
Vote every day. The competition is very fierce. The most support for me is vote every single day. You can go on The Tester webpage, create a profile for yourself, and leave comments. You can click straight through my link which will bring you to The Tester page, go in there and make a profile as a fan and vote every single day. I will probably make a Facebook group page, so you have that avenue. Or the link on Twitter. There will also be a link on PlayStation Home forums. There are many avenues to get you to The Tester site. And once you’re there, vote, vote, vote. Like I said, the competition is fierce, there are plenty of good contestants, so the only way to get through is to vote. I really appreciate everything that people do. Also, I definitely appreciate all that PSTALENT.COM and DOD has done.
