LA Based VOLGER TV Announces Kinks Reality TV Show (http://www.kinksreality.tv) Needs Contestants

On 12, Jul 2011 | No Comments | In Blog, Kinks 2011 | By admin

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) July 07, 2011

VOLGER TV announced today a world wide search for reality show contestants. LA based Producer Jay Volger said she is looking for “original and exciting” contestants for her Mixed Race Reality Dating show KINKS via http://www.kinksreality.tv.

Volger has completed filming the first series of her show, a mixed race dating show where contestants compete to show skills in cultural understanding to win their match. She shot in Malaysia, with participants from Australia and America but is now looking for more contestants for Series 2. Volger launched the contest in front of television executives and media today. The competition will be run on You Tube http://www.youtube.com/kinksrealitytv until September 30th 2011.

Interested competitors need to answer three questions or send in a video. Competition eligibility and entry requirements can be found at http://www.kinksreality.tv. One reporter asked if she was judging, Volger replied, “no, the public will judge, if you get Kinks Reality TV the most followers you can win”. The competition requires contestants to answer why they would want to marry a foreigner on video or questionaire. Anders Wong, director of KINKS said that “videos will help to show off their personality”.

Volger is in negotiations with several international networks and the first series of KINKS should go to air later this year. The Malaysian Minister of Cultural and Moral Standards, Datuk Kok, commented that – “KINKS was very exciting for Malaysian Tourism. Jay Volger’s show will be showing a side of Malaysia a lot of Malaysian’s have not seen yet.” When asked if Kinks Series 2 would be shot in Malaysia, Volger announced “I am looking at either Europe or Africa”

The contest has no race or age requirements. Volger TV recommends candidates enter the competition at their website http://www.kinksreality.tv.

KINKS competition – is being racist the only option?

On 01, May 2011 | No Comments | In Blog, Kinks 2011 | By admin

Hi everybody,

if you haven’t read or heard about our ongoing KINKS the movie competition, here’s the link: http://www.kinksthemovie.com/?p=497

And we are extending our deadline! NEW DEADLINE: JULY 1st

Entries trickled in slowly this month. To make things worse the one eligible entry which got most hits was racist. Hence we disqualified the submission. (However it is remarkable how fast you can get attention, if you hit a sensitive nerve.)

But we REFUSE TO BELIEVE that publicity can only be achieved with tasteless or racist entries. KINKS stands for the message that we are all human and that’s the message we want to spread.

Let’s show the world that FUNNY and CUTE entries have as much power. Looking forward to more submissions! Help us spreading the love!

Feel free to comment on the existing entries. Feel free to drop us comments on how to improve our competition. We will continue and disqualify entries not appropriate – you are the judges.

Btw, if you want to do a submission, but you have trouble gathering the hardware or manpower to do it, we are happy to help you out!

All the best, the KINKS team
