Following the success of Bodog's Battle of the Bands submission process, which saw over 7,000 competitors enter, Calvin Ayre Wild Card Poker will feature a user-generated content aspect in casting its second season.
For a chance to become one of 11 players in the 12-person cast of Calvin Ayre Wild Card Poker II, in line to win a record-setting $2 million, reality TV hopefuls can go to the Bodog Poker website to upload an audition video. All videos will be screened by Bodog.com and the 11 winners will be privately contacted.
'Season II leaves behind the classic reality TV show format in favour of a much more modern and exciting approach,' said Calvin Ayre, the show's host and founder of Bodog.com.
The show, which set ratings highs in its time slot last year, was full of action and saw poker pro Josh Arieh walk away with the $500,000 grand prize. With a shot at poker superstardom and the largest prize in reality TV history – $2 million – up for grabs, the second season of the series looks set to draw an equally large audience.
For those less inclined to audition on video, poker players can join in on one or more of the 30 qualifying poker tournaments on Bodog.com. Qualifying tournaments run every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday at 9:05 EST and have an entry fee of $5 plus 0.50, or 300 Bodog Poker points.
