The Tester 3 Episode 7: Major League Trivia

Kevin Furuichi's Avatar Posted by on Mar 20, 2012 // Executive Producer, PlayStation Network

We’re down to only four gamers in this season of The Tester. With no more team competitions, each person is completely on their own. That was glaringly apparent in last week’s episode, when all were forced to reveal brutally honest opinions about their fellow competitors. If you missed last week’s Starhawk-inspired ‘build and battle’ challenge, you can watch it right here!

Before we get into Episode 7, we wanted to remind you that the extra scenes from previous episodes are all still available to watch. The extra scenes from Episode 6 are available right now, so click the image below to check out some must-see outtakes featuring the panel.

Now, for Episode 7, it’s finally time for the PlayStation trivia challenge. But this season, we’ve added a dunk tank! Correct answers give gamers a chance to submerge their competition in the tank. IGN’s Greg Miller joins Brent and Adrianne as this week’s guest panelist and the top 3 move on to the season finale in just two weeks. (Next week, we’ve got a ‘Season in Review’ episode where we’ve invited favorite cast members back to relive the best and worst moments of the season)

We’re once again hosting Episode 7 in its entirety, so check it out below! (Please do not post spoilers!)

Remember, you can watch the entire episode in the What’s New section of the XMB, PlayStation Home’s Theater 2 (where the limited edition ‘The Tester 3” game over virtual hoodies are awarded), or download in glorious HD from the PlayStation Store after today’s update.

Also, the ‘Superfan’ viewing quest continues in PlayStation Home and you still have a chance to re-join the quest in the special The Tester 3 marathon running in Theater 6 where you can earn the previously released limited edition “The Tester 3” hoodies for your avatar. You can watch all previously released season 3 episodes right in PlayStation Home.

The seventh Twitter giveaway for The Tester 3 is next Monday, March 26. Follow @PlayStation to participate, and keep an eye out for a trivia question related to Episode 7. Congratulations to @Gamer_Rich for winning yesterday’s Episode 6 prize package!

For next week, the prize package provides one lucky winner with not only some great IGN swag, but also signed collectibles from MLB 12 The Show’s cover athlete:

  • The Tester 3 t-shirt
  • 1 month PlayStation Plus voucher
  • IGN swag: Podcast Beyond t-shirt, Start t-shirt, IGN beanie, IGN ballcap, IGN stickers and buttons, IGN notebook, IGN iPad case (signed by Greg Miller), and an IGN screen cleaner.
  • Adrian Gonzalez signed ball and key art

Please remember to allow fans the chance to enjoy the show by NOT posting any spoilers in the comments below, or in the PlayStation forums, and thank you all for your supporting The Tester 3.

Thanks for hosting this here. Some jerk broke into my house yesterday and stole my PS3, Vita, and laptop. At least I can watch this tonight on the computer they didn’t take.

I hope Realitypalez takes it, he may seem cocky but he knows what hes doing. I have a odd suspicion he doesn’t win though. I hope I am wrong…

@DMcgee627 Most definately not haha. I’m looking forward to the rest of this season because its very interesting and even though i watched it for egoraptor, i have been hooked on this show even after his elimination. Keep up the good work guys.

    Great to hear you’re into the show. I think you’ll enjoy the rest of the season.


+ jgrizzle358 on March 20th, 2012 at 1:55 pm said:

what? we have to wait 2 weeks to see who wins it all? no fair…

also, why did you put someone from IGN on there? every true gamer knows IGN sucks. Their game reviews are terrible.


+ monkeys_10 on March 20th, 2012 at 2:40 pm said:

I think it would be interesting if on the next season they could have an episode where the audience could vote someone off for a mix up. But this is so amazing i love this show so much i come home from school every tuesday and watch this.

As always; another week of tester goodness, i anticipate it each week, and i can’t wait to watch the finale!


+ lisatsunami on March 20th, 2012 at 3:03 pm said:

I’ll watch it in HD after downloading tonight. Again, great season, Kevin. Watching Skydiddy building that impossible tower was amazing. He would be my top contender if he wasn’t so clownish. So, my vote is still on Akeeleze or however it’s spelled.

damn i hope Realitypalez goes.. was hoping he would win in the start because hes a GAF, but after the this (and a few other episodes) damn hes a D.

Really good season guys! I’ve been watching tester since season 1, was something different. i just have a question about the description to this episode on the PS Store. Why does it say episode 7 of 9? I have not watched the episode yet so i don’t know if it says/implies the reason to this in the episode, or if this is a typo on the storefront. I was thinking maybe there would be a special episode that would be #9 (possibly a reunion like season 2?)
anyways, keep up the great work! (as always :) ) and can’t wait to watch the remainder of the season!

    The season finale is in two weeks in Episode 9. Next week, we’ve got a special look back at this season. Episode 8 will feature some of your favorites cast members (egoraptor, J-Tight, kwaja, etc.) back to relive the best and worst moments of the season. Episode 8 will also feature more extra scenes from earlier episodes.


+ SHINSPIKES on March 20th, 2012 at 5:31 pm said:

How come in the ps store, under the free tv shows section, you guys don’t have the tester ep 6 and 7 over there? And in the tv section under tester itself, you only have up to ep 6. I don’t download from the game section cause I want the 1080 hd version.

    Yes, but don’t miss next week’s look back at the season with egoraptor, kwajamonster, ninjanomyx,J-Tight, SkyD1ddy as well as a closer look at the 3 finalists. There will be some great out-takes too.

Excellent episode;) It’s just a shame we got to wait 2 weeks?!?! to watch the Final :(


+ G__ROW on March 21st, 2012 at 8:03 am said:

I really hope Reality doesn’t win… The dude would be awful to work with. I also think you guys should reconsider leaving the last challenge down to chance, and actually pick the most deserving person for the job.


+ AstroCreep138 on March 21st, 2012 at 10:08 am said:

I hope krysti doesn’t win.. she really doesn’t deserve it and seems like a huge nooblet. Have all the (game) tattoos you want, it doesn’t mean you’re passionate/know anything about them. There’s thousands of people who get many things tattooed just to seem “kewl”.. lol. Suzi was the best out of all the girls, and it’s a shame that she was ganged. Not her fault the others were even more childish..

Suzkaiden was my favorite D:

I love this season! I can’t wait for the finale it’s going to be awesome to see who’ll come out on top. It really makes me wish I tried out for this season.

Is Asuukaa on the episode? (8)


+ ASSHAT222 on March 22nd, 2012 at 7:55 am said:

Been a huge fan of this series. I love how this reality show features games that are on the horizon. My favorite episode is the one that highlighted street fighter x tekken. I like that there are more game related challenges per episode. The formula should retain, video game challenge part 1 then physical challenge part 2. I hope for more seasons in the future. Also more Adrian Curry’s cleavage.

Episode 7 is awesome, b’cos everyone gets wet. LOL
