143w ago - PlayStation Network Executive Producer Kevin Furuichi has introduced the first cast member for The Tester, Season 2 today alongside a new video trailer on the PSN competitive reality series.
To quote: After four intense rounds of voting among more than 28,000 registered participants, we'd like to congratulate the winner of our first-ever online casting contest for The Tester: Mickey Paradis (aka 8bitmickey) from Denton, Texas.
After receiving a majority of the 350,000+ community votes, he will join the rest of the cast this Fall for the launch of the newest season of The Tester.
If you've been following our ten-week long Summer casting contest, you're probably familiar with 8bitmickey's hilarious and well-admired video submissions. Well, he's got one more for all of his loyal supporters to say "thanks."
