The World Poker Tour announced in a press release recently that they are holding open auditions for an on-air commentator to host a new segment called “The Raw Deal”. The company says they are looking for a brutally honest poker enthusiast to share the screen with commentators Mike Sexton and Vince Van Patten. This new role calls for someone who can be the Simon Cowell of cards, a nod to the harsh, but honest former American Idol judge.
Applicants can choose from two ways to audition for the new role:
1. Come to the Bicycle Casino on August 19th from 11:00 am to 8:00 pm to audition as the WPT staff prepares for the Legends of Poker Tournament. The WPT says this is the best way to win the job.
2. Go to WPT’s “Raw Deal” Facebook page and upload a 45 second video. Friends and fans will be able to vote on the submissions. The top 10 vote-getters will be put on a shortlist for callbacks from WPT producers.
Submissions close at midnight on August 15th.
