Egoraptor deserves to win for his contribution of the “Awesome” series. Some of the finest content on the internet.

    Only way to find out is to watch on Tuesday, February 7 when the Season Premiere debuts on PlayStation Network.

Will the first edition ps vita’s little deviants be a full retail game or a downloadable?

Can’t wait to watch this!
Egoraptor better stay in for awhile because i feel he will make the show a whole lot more enjoyable to watch.

Dood! How about giving a physically handicapped gamer a shot. Just cause you can’t run or crawl through mud, doesn’t mean you don’t have the gaming or leadership qualities to win.

Here’s an idea…. Stop with the silly physical challenges and, have more actual gaming challenges. You want team building exercises? Don’t have them diving blindfolded into mud, looking for keys…. Put them in Uncharted Co-Op missions….

Just a though.

An asian girl? Yes. I only want kwaja monster.

Seiven said:

looks to be a hilarious season…can’t wait to see the new challenges

Infemeth said:

This is probably like the best thing to come to the PlayStation Network. ‘Nuff said.

I always enjoy seeing The Tester. No matter who is in the cast it’s fun to watch!

Zezzler said:

January 5th, 8:50 am

Egoraptor better win. he is so effing funny, but underneath all that humour is a guy who knows video games.

Richard Lugo i know that cat wow Tobi made huh! well let’s see how far he’ll go.

Asuka424 said:

January 5th, 8:53 am

@Hypnotic – you noticed that, huh? ;)

Anywho, I’m asuukaa (still don’t know why my name’s spelled like that on the show, lol). I hope everyone enjoys watching this season as much as we enjoyed being a part of it. Stay tuned, and see you in February! <3

Meredith Molinari looks LOVELY in that photo;)

One thing they should do more in the shows is have more PS3 games challenges? Some challenges in the past have been pointless i think. Let them play PS3 Exclusives games against each other etc etc ;) You know, erm promote the PS3 & its games in this PlayStation Show;)

    This season definitely will feature several game play challenges as many of you have mentioned in the past. So, we hope you don’t miss this season.

The winner= Charles Weichselbaum (aka RealityPalez), 22, Chicago, IL

January 5th, 9:05 am

Ouch. I feel offended by this. Looks like it’s back to trying to get into the industry off merit and not this.

MaikelSteneker said:

January 5th, 9:08 am

Where do you even find these people? Regardless, these seem to be great characters that will make for a fun show.

J-tight said:

January 5th, 9:08 am

First and second The Tester “seasons” saw a male victor. Obviously, a woman will wake away, to make things both politically correct and “fair.” I can’t watch this scripted pseudo-reality garbage.

    This show is definitely not scripted. Ask any of the former cast members. And remember, the past 2 season’s featured a game play off that was not judged by the panel. The previous seasons including the finales are available to watch on website.

LovesJapanManga said:

January 5th, 9:36 am

So, is it safe to assume that there is STILL NO SUBTITLE OR CLOSED-CAPTIONING OR Open-Captioned for this show??? To be honest with you, that is quite unfair. For three seasons now, still no option to offer… Despite the fact that many of us knew that you guys are having difficult time to get this one down, but come on. Be fair, please.

Trieloth said:

Awesome!! Cant wait till this show starts again!

Can’t wait to watch Tester 3! I’m happy to see a PSHome member join the show, good luck everyone!

Congratulations Asuukaa! You go grrrl!

saiyanknight87 said:

January 5th, 10:15 am

yes the show isn’t scripted i can see that now knowing that Rich made it on here lol threw me for a loop but my question is to sony why have votes if no one who the people voted for show up? it seems like sony obviously went the route of element of surprise lol. It’s a few people who got voted for i thought i would see on the show for sure.

station3fever said:

January 5th, 10:15 am

The show is already awesome to watch especially with meredith in it (yippie she’s here again). But wait, as if that wasn’t enough Sony went and pick up these beautiful women as an added bonus! suzkaiden, krystipryde, burnNibelheim, kwaja monster, burnNibelheim omg i’m in heaven. I think this season will be the best of all. I just have 1 wish and that’s to see if Sony can make the show at least an hour long (yes i love the show that much), or even blooper clips at the end :)
thanks kevin and spread the word.

This is the only reality show I regularly watch, besides America’s Most Wanted. And it’s the only reality show my wife and I watch together.

I think it’s a fun way to find future employees. I wish more jobs had that type of “interview”. But it’s also a way to share the PlayStation community spirit.

One last thing: Home forever!

al2009man said:

January 5th, 10:26 am

Egoraptor’s funnyness will be on the Tester soon!

it nice to see one of the PlayStation Home user to finally join the Tester, but that is asuukaa/Asuka424! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOTTTTTTTTTTT!!!!!!!!!!!

ItaChu said:

January 5th, 10:35 am

ninjanomyx is like Killer Bee from Naruto …. so he’s the killer bee of gaming …. but the fatso version xD lol and asuukaa ….lv18 trophy level OH MY GOD thats sooooo high!!! lol gurl lv18 is the new level 5 WORK THEM TROPHIES!

poisonedsodapop said:

January 5th, 10:35 am

As much as I love the Tester… I love egoraptor more. You know who my vote is for. Sorry other contestants, only care about egoraptor. /heartless

poisonedsodapop said:

January 5th, 10:39 am

Also I always found it funny guy’s obsessions with female gamers, like we’re bigfoot or something. We’re gamers just like you. I’ve had guys try to impress me with their trophy levels and find a spot on my friendslist. I get so amused by what some people pull lol.

I am very excited about this. Makes me happy to be apart of the playstation fan base.

JG4Horrorshow said:

January 5th, 10:59 am

I will only be watching this show for egoraptor. Once/if he gets voted off, I will stop watching because this show does not seem as though it will be incredibly good, as it has yet to be so far.

AlexDrelles said:

Super excited about this season. Please bring back Mo’Chocolate for a guest appearance. I love that PlayStation has it’s own reality program. Beats the heck out of the Apprentice.

January 5th, 11:15 am

@XFRod I agree with you. I am also a physically handicapped gamer that tried out for this though I didn’t get enough votes because I registered late. Add me brolol07 if you check this
