Get the Truth in ‘The Tester 2’ Reunion Show

Kevin Furuichi's Avatar + Posted by Kevin Furuichi on Feb 08, 2011 // Executive Producer, PlayStation Network

Ever since ‘Gaymer’ (Matthew Brown) was crowned the winner of “The Tester 2”, just seven weeks ago, we’ve received hundreds of questions from fans about this past season. From these submissions, we invited your favorite cast members back for a bonus episode. Today, we’re excited to announce “The Tester 2 – Reunion Special” will premiere next Tuesday, February 15. Here’s a sneak peek…

As you can see, top finalists Cheska, Gaymer and Scooter, fan-favorites Mo Chocolate and Tripplethreat, as well as special guest Big Fazeek, return to tell us more about what really happened in the PlayStation loft. With questions coming straight from the fans, this reunion special revisits key moments of Season 2 and reveals some never-before-seen footage from the exciting season finale. Don’t miss this entertaining reunion set to debut on PlayStation Network and Crackle next week.

The Tester 2 - Episode 8 Prizes

We also wanted to congratulate Danny T. from San Diego, CA who brought home the grand prize of our Download and Win sweepstakes. He is now the owner of a brand new Sony Bravia 3D TV and ‘The Tester’ limited edition PS3 system signed by all the panelists.

We hope you enjoy this bonus Reunion Special next week and thanks to all the fans who supported another successful season.

After what they pulled on Mo Chocolate I’ve lost most respect I’ve had for these three.

    You might be interested in what Mo Chocolate thinks about what happened in Episode 7. Don’t miss his perspective in next week’s Reunion Show.

Special guest Big Fazeek, LMFAO – the emphasis is definitely on ‘special’ in this case…

You know, I didn’t like BigFazeek on The Tester at all. However, after watching his videos on youtube, he is the man. The most down to earth dude I’ve seen. Definitely check him out.

congrats to the winner!
anyways, from the little that i saw of the show. it seemed to me that cheska was a better fit to be the winner than the rest. because to me she knew more about games than anybody else there :0

    She killed it in Episode 1. And, in this Reunion Show, we’ve got a never-before-seen clip of her from the finals as she’s riding back to the loft and interviewed by Meredith over the phone.

Guys, if you watched they have all respect in the world for Mo, but remember that this is a competition and he had the chances to redeem himself everytime he was challenged. In the end the strongest competitors won and eventually ‘Gay-Mer’ is now the next Tester. I sought it was fair and no ones feelings got hurt. Now this being a reality / game show I feel Big Fazeek might have been scripted to be the [DELETED], because heaven forbid this country produce a show without an antagonist.

All in all, the season was awesome.

The tester 2 ended and that’s it. This big reunion is just to put more drama in the show…

This was supposed to be a Next Video Game Tester, focused on games and attitude to do that task…

Now appears like i’m watching Grey’s Anatomy on my PS3.

Protip: Instead of doing another Tester show you should put that money into a show about games. I’m talking about where games are actually played and maybe they’ll give you tips. Remember those old Playstation Underground demo discs and the “Cool Moves” section? Bring back Seoul Vilegas to do a show or something.

@15 sorry but that’s just insane.
@16 agree
@17 that would be epic
@18 and everyone who doesn’t know what it is: it’s a USA only PSN exclusive FREE reality show where people compete to have a job as a, well, a Playstation Tester (testing video games for $$$) and a $5,000 signing bonus plus a PS3

+ Sponge-worthy on February 8th, 2011 at 2:33 pm said:

The title “The Biggest Loser” was already taken, so instead we have “The Tester.”

Honestly Sony, out of the universe of possible improvements or enhancements that you could conceivably bring to the PSN experience, “The Tester” is what you’re going with? Amateur hour all the way… :(

+ iTofuMan on February 8th, 2011 at 2:41 pm said:

the title for this post confuses me. get the “truth”…but isnt this all scripted?

Seriously Sony can we stop with these fake reality shows and just concentrate on getting games on the psn? we still have a ton of games for Psp and Ps1 still not on the psn. and you waste your time and money on this?

@1 yazter & @6kamino153.
Mo Chocolate seemed a bit juvenile at times, but he was good-natured. In the quiz I was disgusted to see how the other 3 finalist including the winner Gaymer ganged up on him to eliminate him. It could be argued that they were going for the weakest link, but only one person could win yet they thought it was a good idea to eliminate him – for what reason? Personally I felt it was IMPLICIT RACISM.

The developer of Pain, an African-American, was on the panel and even he felt something was not right. He asked the 3 ‘Do you not like chocolate?’

I’m sure the final three would hate to be labelled as prejudice in any way, however they differenciated themselves from Mo Chocolate, and I believe it was because of his ethnicity.

not a fan of the fact that war princess seems to have been uninvited and yet big fazeek is included in this.

+ VenomUK on February 9th, 2011 at 4:20 am said:

@47. Actually every competitor should have been invited back. What was the point of leaving some out. It’s like a school reunion without some of the best love characters.
