Everyone loves a bit of reality TV, whether it is The Only Way Is Essex, Jersey Shore, The Hills or Big Brother. It’s crap TV, totally predictable and something I wouldn’t waste my entire time watching but a sneak peak here and there does come in handy when, like me, you can’t help yourself buying that Heat or Closer magazine.With Big Brother no more on our screens and Davina McCall pushed to one side (huge sigh of relief), new reality shows have proved more popular and we all have to know if Mark Wright & Lauren Goodger are actually ever gonna get married.
TOWIE, which just won a BAFTA yesterday (I know WTF) may in fact be shoved to the side and instead a new reality show might just be the new ‘it’ thing. Budweiser is to launch one called Big Time and is currently recruiting participants through everyone’s favourite social network, Facebook. The show expected to be shown online and on TV later this year, is offering fans the chance to become a ‘professional’ racing car driver, footballer, model, chef, actor or music start by taking part in tasks to win sports trials, auditions or apprenticeships with celebrities and industry experts.
Each episode will feature a different ’dream’, such as becoming a racing driver with Nascar star Kevin Harvick or being a chef at a Las Vegas restaurant working alongside celebrity chef Hubert Keller.
Four fans will be chosen from casting videos submitted to Budweiser’s BudUnited Facebook page after the closing date of 29 June. The page currently has 858,000 followers. So how about it, fancy seeing yourself and your dream come true, reality TV series style? Then check out Facebook!
