John Chow dot Com reader Bart Pair has entered Joel Comm’s Next Internet Millionaire contest. Bart is trying to win an all expenses paid trip to the world’s first Internet based reality show. If all goes well, Bart will win the $25,000 cash and get an opportunity to make a million dollars doing a joint venture with Joel. To enter the contest, Bart has to make an audition video and get people to vote for him. Public opinion counts for approximately 50% of the total score to make it to the next round.
Bart could have sent me an email asking for help getting votes and I likely would have done so because it would be really cool to have a reader win. However, Bart didn’t take that route. Instead, he ordered a ReviewMe review to make sure I get the word out. That tells me that Bart is very serious about this competition and will do whatever it takes to win. I wonder if any of the other competitors are spending money on their promotion.
When Bart first heard of Joel’s contest, he knew nothing about making a video. He had to learn everything in ten days and judging by the looks of his video, it shows. But that is OK because the other audition videos are nothing to write home about either. When Bart makes it through to the next round, he plan to make a better video.
In order to make it to next round, he needs your votes. So take a view of Bart’s video below and then head over to Next Internet Millionaire and vote for Bart. Right now, Bart has 488 votes and an overall score of 4.60. I am not sure if the audition is based on number of votes, highest rating, or a combination of both, but it sure would be nice to have a reader on the show.
Good luck Bart. You have my vote.
