Top Affiliate Challenge Update

The Top Affiliate Challenge is the Internet’s first real-time reality program. Over a two week period, 12 contestants will be divided into three teams. Each team will be led by either myself, Shoemoney or Ken McArthur. The team with the least earnings each day will lose one member. The last contestant standing will be the Top Affiliate winner.

A New Car for the Winner

In addition to getting a big wad of cash, the winner of the Top Affiliate Challenge will be getting a brand new 2008 Jeep Patriot SUV. Chrysler is also going to provide each team on Top Affiliate Challenge a minivan to shuttle them around on the various challenges that will take place. The producers denied my request for a Viper.

Get Those Audition Videos In!

If you haven’t submitted an audition video for the show, you have until June 1 to do so. Contestant selection begins in June and taping will begin in July 1. Selected contestants will be flown all expenses paid to Lincoln, Nebraska for the filming. I know. What the hell is there to do in Lincoln, Nebraska? Ask Shoemoney. He lives there. No wonder he’s bald.

    1. Well, it is worldwide.. so it’s okay. Too bad I won’t have the time to enter. It’d be tons of fun!

      lol @ Thiago Prado’s comment below. :mrgreen:

    is this a worldwide competition? I.e. Can people from the UK enter??

    1. John Chow says:

      Yes, the contest is open world wide.

      1. Paul B says:

        Do we have to wear clothes in our audition video?

  3. Thiago Prado says:

    I was waiting for something like that come up a long time ago. I’ll rush and send my audition video to get my name in this contest. I’m so excited right now, I think my heart is gonna blow up. 😀

    I think YOU are a strong candidate and I am sure you are participating! The last post – this time pho meet up was also good like every time. Keep that up John, uniting bloggers is nice job! I think we should buy the Pho place now.. 😉

    Even though Shoemoney lives there, Nebraska seems random as hell. It probably should’ve been NYC or something.

    Good luck!

      I think Nebraska was a good idea. It brings attention to a place that needs it. NYC is too congested. The Dot Com lifestyle is about freedom, especially freedom from congested, overworked cities.

  7. MoneyBlog says:

    Can people from the Romania enter? :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

  8. I’m already bald so being in Lincoln won’t affect me at all. I’ll have to check this out.

  9. Paolo U says:

    So the top bloggers are will also participate. What chance does a common blogger such as us do have against them. 🙁

    1. John Chow says:

      We are not contestants. We are there to help the team only.

      1. Ty Hurd says:

        And I would hope to be on your team John. You’ve been a huge inspiration to me and my bloogin endeavors!

        (shameless plug) Right now I’m in 4th place and if I can hold it I’m going to Nebraska! If anyone wants to help a guy out you can vote for me here:

        Remember to vote 10!

        See ya in Nebraska John 😉

    2. Terry Tay says:

      The contestents are being LED BY the super bloggers John, Shoe and Ken.
      So get your audition in ASAP 😉

  10. Very interesting. Sounds like some good prizes are lined up already. Should be a lot of fun to follow.

  11. Cronus says:

    Hmmm… I think I could seriously have a good shot at getting into this show. But just one question, what does the winner actually get??? I see they get a 2 year lease on the Patriot, but it says “cash prize” and I searched all over the website and found no indication of how much, or what other things the winner/contestants may receive.

    1. John Chow says:

      The winner gets 1/2 the money raised by affiliate sales over the two week contest, plus whatever other prizes put up by sponsors.

    2. How do you know you have a good chance?

  12. Liane says:

    Nebraska? How did they came up with that place.

    Just curious, why in Pete’s sake do you have to end your post about Shoemoney being bald? Though that made me chucke… :mrgreen:

    Goodluck JC


    P.S. ProBlogger was not IN?

    1. John Chow says:

      Since I’m up against Shoe again, I figure I’ll start the smack talk first. 😈

      1. Better start thinking of sneaky ways to help your team beat his, like his little RSS exploit.

    2. Stephen says:

      Now that ShoeMoney has shoes, he will need to become ToupeeMoney! 😀

  13. Mike Huang says:

    John, shame on you, don’t be so greedy 🙂 Although, I would love to see you rolling in a Viper 😉


  14. James Allen says:


    For season two, come over and film with us ex-pat marketers living in Japan!

    Hope this goes great for you.

  15. Syed Balkhi says:

    lol … Is that why Jeremy is bald ? you are so crazy John

  16. Johnny C. says:

    I always wanted to go to Nebraska and see the superheros of affiliate marketing, yeah.

  17. Paul B says:

    So what’s so bad about Nabraska? I would love to enter this but after careful consideration and much thought the wife has said no. She’s scared that if I make too much money I’ll be running of with a blonder better looking younger model.

  18. Affiliate17 says:

    A reality program. Nice. There are reality programs for almost everything now

  19. this is a fantastic opportunity for someone to really make it big 😛

  24. Caleb says:

    😎 After watching all those real estate investment reality shows I knew it was only a matter of time til this would manifest. In fact,I used to tell my friends that somebody needs to make a MakeMoneyOnline reality show.

    Who do you guys think will be the best team leader?

  25. When you try to sign up at it asks for your state – so when you live outside the US, there’s no way to register 🙁
