GSN Searches For The Nation’s Best Undiscovered Game Show Hosts
 
While Handing Out Cash And Prizes Throughout Its Seven-City Tour
 
 
 
(Santa Monica, CA)- March 5, 2009GSN announced today that it’s going on the road with a seven-city tour in search of the nation’s best undiscovered game show hosts with the “GSN LIVE Play Every Day Tour,” presented by NESCAFÉ® TASTER’S CHOICE®. From March 7 to April 4, the tour will bring the look and feel of GSN LIVE to cities across the country-including Cleveland, Philadelphia, Detroit, St. Louis, Phoenix, Houston and Sacramento-and put winning within reach by giving away cash and prizes in local malls. Mall shoppers can play games for a chance to win NESCAFÉ TASTER’S CHOICE coffee, as well as cash and prizes. NESCAFÉ TASTER’S CHOICE will also present a special flavor sampling game in which players can test their taste buds with three different coffee flavors.
 
The “GSN LIVE Play Every Day Tour” will also create an opportunity for each market to showcase its hometown talent. Locals who think they have what it takes to be a game show host are invited to audition for their chance to win an all-expense paid trip to Los Angeles to co-host a segment of GSN LIVE. GSN LIVE is a daily program which features live game play throughout the day, as well as game highlights and celebrity interviews. 
 
Each stop on the tour will include a variety of games for mall shoppers to play, including Cash Grab, Spin-to-Win, Trivia Challenge and GSN.com’s most popular online casual games: Catch 21, Bejeweled, Solitaire and Scrabble Cubes. Players have a chance to win cash and prizes, with thousands of dollars worth of prizing being awarded in each market.
 
GSN’s game show host search will feature two semi-final rounds and one final round of auditions in front of a live mall audience at each destination, on a replica of the GSN LIVE set. Six participants per semi-final round will each be given seven minutes to demonstrate their best game show hosting skills, while being scored on their game show potential, stage presence, contestant interaction, energy level and ability to command the audience. The semi-final round winners from each market will then face off in a final round to determine their city’s best game show host. The final winner from each market will win an all-expense paid trip to Los Angeles where they will experience a day in the life of a game show host and co-host a segment of GSN LIVE.
 
Alfonso Ribeiro (“Catch 21,” “GSN LIVE” and “The Fresh Prince of Bel Air”) will join in on the fun in Philadelphia and Houston as a celebrity judge, while Fred Roggin (“GSN LIVE”) will make a special appearance in his hometown of Phoenix, AZ. 
 
GSN LIVE airs live throughout the day every weekday on GSN between 12-6pm ET/11-5pm CT. This interstitial programming celebrates all things games with unforgettable moments from game shows both new and classic and gives viewers at home a chance to win exotic vacations, high-tech electronics, major appliances, fine jewelry and much more. Game lovers can easily play by calling the toll free phone number (1-888-4-GSN-LIVE) or participating for free online at GSN.com, making winning within reach for everyone.
