Basically, this is a very high-stakes popularity contest where you need to appeal to other people in order to stay in the running. Last year, a contestant won $33,000 playing in the contest. Contestants on TV have won more money; however, $33,000 is nothing to sneeze at. The first contest took place last year, and now it’s entering its second season. If you want to apply, all you need to do is download and install the app. The app will guide you through creating your character.
Being isolated in a house with no means of communication seems like it’ll be hard to replicate on a mobile device or computer, but the people at 9th Impact found a way to do this. Just like in the TV show, the contestants will need to interact with other people in order to stay relevant and not get voted off. According to Dr. Finn Krewer, head of development at 9th Impact, contestants will face competitions, chores, evictions, and nominations in order to stay in the game. Also, they will “have to navigate all the same complex social relationships and intrigue that make the TV show so compelling.”
Since this is such a massive multiplayer online event, you will be competing against a lot of other people. The first winner had to beat out 33,724 other people to get her prize. The game is free to download and play and it’s also available for Android, iOS, and PC.
