Reality shows are nothing new - some more real than others. Twitch is throwing their hat into the game once more with a new competitive series on the horizon that could be life-changing for one hopeful streamer.
Twitch made the official announcement this week detailing what the new show holds. Titled Stream On, the competition will be similar to that of American Idol - but for gamers. The grand total winnings amounts to $60,000 and is available for UK, Canada, and US participants. As per Twitch:
"Today, we’re excited to announce “Stream On,” a new game show from Twitch Studios! Premiering in March 2018, the program will elevate some of the best and brightest up-and-coming streamers. Starting today, Twitch Partners are invited to audition for participation.
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. Video audition submissions are open now on the Twitch submission page, and full contest rules can be found here.
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."
