WATCH: Twitch Reality Series Will See Streamers Face Off For $60,000
If you’re a fan of reality television and streamers, you’re in luck! A Twitch reality series has recently been announced by the company, and it will streamers face off against one another for the grand prize of $60,000. Much like reality “game” shows that currently air on television, think American Idol and the like, Stream On will put a focus on participants that compete in “challenges designed to test important streamer skills.”
Set to premiere in March 2018, the Twitch reality series is currently accepting video audition submissions. Streamers who are at least 18 years of age, a Twitch Partner, and from either the U.S., Canada, or the United Kingdom may apply. The company also mentions that this competition is mainly geared “toward streamers who are right on the cusp of making streaming full-time a possibility.” Check out the announcement video below, followed by what is to be expected in Stream On:
Maybe you’ve been streaming a long time and are looking for that one last push to take you into a full-time streaming career, or maybe you feel like you’re just getting started, and need a boost to reach more people and show them your skills! Either way, Stream On might be just the opportunity you need to shine. Right now, Twitch Studios is looking for the most entertaining, competitive streamers, with great personality and lots of potential.
Stream On contestants will face challenges designed to test important streamer skills, and be evaluated by a panel of Twitch judges. Viewers in Twitch chat will also play an important role in choosing who advances and who is eliminated at each stage of the friendly competition. The show will take place across multiple channels as contestants compete throughout each week from their home streaming setup, and the action will be punctuated by a weekly recap and elimination show from Twitch Studios.
Ultimately, the contestant who best shows off their ability to entertain, lead a community, and be a pacesetter in the streaming space will emerge victorious, and be awarded a grand prize of $5,000 per month for a year — a total of $60,000 — in order to help take their streaming career to the next level.”
