Maximize Your Exposure: TV and Radio Opportunities for Small Businesses, Startups and Professionals.

Welcome to Contestantville.com – Get On Reality TV

TV & Radio March 29, 2013

(Note: Our model has changed a bit since this blog was written. We now focus solely on on- air experts. ) We’re so excited to launch Contestantville.com (now Boomopolis.tv) – a place where real people can become stars and get on reality TV.

I remember being a kid and asking, “Mom, how much do you have to pay to be on TV?” She laughed a bit, and replied, “Well, honey, you actually don’t have to pay anything.  They pay you.” WOW. What a concept, and ever since then, I was hooked – working both in front and behind the camera (and of course, continuing to be a fan).

When I started to think about the potential for Contestantville, I realized it’s really about so much more than contestants.  Over the last decade, real people who are not professional actors have been showing up all over the media – commercials, talk shows, print and of course, reality shows.  With You Tube, the explosion continues.

The purpose of this blog is to explore this unique world but also to kick back and have some fun.  So a few of the topics you might read about here are:

-Interviews with contestants and on/camera experts
-Funny videos from old game shows
-Interesting stories on how people got discovered
-Tips on how to get cast
-Our own take on the world of non-fiction TV

To get you thinking on the many ways non-professionals are used in the media (other than reality and game shows), I’ve included just a few video examples below.   In addition to just doing it for fun, if you’re an expert in anything, it’s a great way to get additional exposure for your business.  Enjoy the clips, and I’ll see you next week.
