Today's Takeaway - 10/20
Earlier this month, we asked you guys to help vote for a new contestant on the reality show The Tester. The voting period for the Tester Season 3 is over and Sony has announced the winner. It's Arin Hanson, aka Egoraptor!! Here is the video of him finding out the good news.
The Tester is a reality show, which runs on PSN. Twelve people will compete in a series of challenges to become the next game tester for the Playstation brand. We will be running our commentary on the Tester Season 3 in the future and look forward to seeing what hijinks Arin gets into. For now, let's give him our congratulations and thanks everyone who voted!
You're making a broad assumption about him and all of his work based off of about 5 seconds of staged video? That's just cynical.
I can tell that I wont like them because of his personality. AVGN's biggest draw for me is his personality both in and out of character. This guy acts like a retard.
You know what the best part is, I didn't watch the link before posting it. There's a caption that actually says "this is all wrong now, all the awesome cartoons are now on Youtube"
You guys should do an interview with him like you did with the first contestant from the last season of The Tester. That would be pretty awesome.
YESSSS! too bad i will never see an episode.
I think that's all he's going for. Hopefully they don't edit out a lot of his antics, I've heard they cut out a LOT of stuff on that show.
Well if you enjoy AVGN then you'll like Egoraptor's "awesome" videos. They're flash animated and they do nothing but make fun of the weird things in the Metal Gear series; he's done it on other things as well. You should at least check out one of his videos, you might be surprised.
Yes i voted for him every day, and it payed off :D im actually going to watch the show now :)
Arin has achieved the one thing every gamer dreams of, having a girlfriend.
he is a comedian. i think he is going for more the laughs
An alternate way to get this position is to actually apply and get a job as a game tester. Its not that hard....and its not that fun either.
No I havent....and I probably wont.
I voted for him, now I feel good about myself
Cant wait. screwattack plz show episodes
Oh its going to be great xD
It's actually been up for a while. Most of his Awesome cartoons were added to Youtube in the past year.
WHOO! I can't wait for the commentary!
I wouldn't expect any other kind of reaction from him :') Congrats Man!
