What's wrong with realilty?
Last night I watched snippets of The Voice. I am totally mesmerized by how taken I have been to this show. Here I am, a person who cannot stand watching television when a good book is on offer, yet I have been sucked in by this cleverly collaborated show.

In this case, it's all about the judges. Keith Urban's to die for looks and voice - OMG! Seal's sexiness and Joel Madden's incredible charisma - who would have thought? Even Delta, who I liked before the first two episodes, then found her speaking voice and over-acting mildly irritating, is now back in my good books. She is delightful. She has settled into the role and with these four judges, Australian Television reality shows has gone to another great level.

Last night, a very talented young girl who I know, sent me a link via Facebook to look at a video she produced as her entry to The Channel V Presenter Search. Watch this BUT PLEASE PRESS THE LOVE HEART BEFORE YOU EXIT: 


A clear example that there is talent out there waiting to be found.

For Channel V, holding a competition like this is great for driving people to their website. What was surprising though, was how hard it was to find out what to do on the website. I found it really hard to work out that you have to click on the picture, then click on the video, then click on the love heart. All a bit confusing. Not sure how it is possible that one person was able to get 300k love hearts clicked. Sounds dodgy to me, because it isn't very easy to actually work out how this competition is being run.

What are your thoughts? Does the website make it hard to like this competition? Are you struggling to work out what to do? What are your thoughts.

P.S. How hilarious is the video. Very, very funny!

P.S.S. Scroll down on the Channel V page, find Georgia Sinclair's picture, click on the picture, then an extended screen will pop up. Click on 'watch video', then laugh your head off, but before you press close, MAKE SURE YOU CLICK ON THE LOVE HEART.
