Who Should We Pick for the Final 2 Contestants?

Today the producers and I need to pick the final 2 Top Affiliate Challenge contestants from the top 25% of all of the video auditions submitted for the show.

All three of us have diferent opinions, anddifferent names we would like to see on the show. There is also a massive email campaign going on for Eric Green the “DigitalGanster” and Gaj Subudhi.

I have neen receiving email from all over the world for these 2 for the better part of 2 days now. I can only wonder why they didn’t ask these people to vote for them while the voting was still open.

Nevertheless, there are LOTS of very qualified and very entertaining people to choose from in the Top 25%. Originally we were planning on using these wild card picks to balance our cast. For example, if we had a bunch of veterans, we would bring in some newbies and visa versa. We are a little heavy on men, but that is also representative of the industry.

Some people think we should pick a couple women regardless of other factors to help gender balance the show. Others think we should bring on the two people who would be the best earners in our opinion because that is what the show is about. One of the producers has mentioned that by picking one of the more controversial contestants we would increase viewership. As you can see, there are a lot of factors to consider.

Who do you think we should pick? Who would you pick if you were in our shoes? The auditions are no longer up on the Top Affiliate Challenge website, but you can view the videos in my Revver account here.

What faces would make you watch the show every day?

    Hmmm? Vicious and/or dangerously aggressive. Yeah – that’s right. And since we’re in that area – you can also paint me as being BRUTALLY honest.

    Acting like you’re made of sugar and spice doesn’t make it true.

    If the truth hurts – tough!

    You should pick, Eric Green AKA The Digital Gangster. He is a leader in the web 2.0 market.
    Not only has he mastered the art of web 2.0 marketing, he has an ability to teach others.

    Wes , why not offering people help for once instead of stealing 2K from people and leaving them. We both know what i am talking about, how can you sleep at night…

    Shane

    Shane

    Eric – tell your boyfriend to quit harassing me!

    “How can you sleep at night?” – coming from someone backing UVME and Troy? Incredible!

    And don’t forget to let everyone know – you and your boyfriend were kicked out of the 2K Company referenced above – and that you piggyback off the name every chance you get!

    Keep em’ coming and I’ll keep knocking em’ down!

    Wes, You bad boy! lol

    Eric and Shane were never kicked out of that 2K program. They quit! Since we’re on the subject of integrity. Isn’t it amazing that when Thor did the fraud sweep, you went from 15th place to 35th place within an hour. hmmmmm, interesting.

    I wonder why that is? Don’t answer as I already know the answer.

    Keep them coming; because every time you swing, you destroy yourself one piece at a time.

    You make this to easy. Just continue to respond or open your mouth and you leave no doubt who you really are.

    Ps.

    Don’t forget the raincoat because it’s raining bs

    Love,

    MOM

    Hmmm…I wonder why you’re using an alias???

    Must have something to do with the fact that you’re full of what you’re shoveling!

    Unlike you – pathetic coward that you are – I’m a Glass House!

    Wes, I wonder what Val and the rest of the team would think of your mean comments on this site? The way you are behaving, you are ruining any chance to ever be on the affiliate challenge, and anyone who reads this would be really put off to work with you. Apart from losing business partners and customers, is there anything you actually get from behaving the way you do?

    You’re right Sarah!

    GREAT LUCK to ALL the contestants!

    I’ll be one of your most loyal viewers!

    Have a DYNAMITE day!

    Ok, natives… I REALLY appreciate all of the readership on this post, and I am sorry that the contestants you supported may not have made it on the show.

    I would really appreciate all of you helping to make Top Affiliate Challenge a success by posting about it, cutting videos about it, and spreading the good word.

    Eric Green has obviously touched a lot of you by offering great content and support with little regard for his own income or desires. We plan on doing something very similar with Top Affiliate Challenge.

    I hope to see you all commenting in the TAC forums on July 1st. I PROMISE you won’t want to miss episode 1 😉

  11. Robert Sams said on June 17th, 2008 at 10:33 pm

    I will vote for Eric Green AKA Digital Gangster… He has been the greatest value to my internet marketing last year and continually giving more value to internet and Web2.0! He really looks out for his team and others! I am blessed for his core value and his work speaks for itself and that’s the bottomline. Eric does not need my endorsement, his people and testimonials of many lives and family are better because of his core value and commitment! His unselfish contribution I will always pass it onto my son!
    Thank you Eric for being who you are,
    Robert Sams

    WOW!
    Someone sent me this today, interesting blog/comments!

    All I can say is the “truth always REVEALS ITSELF!” This I am learning everyday!
    I have had some incredible learning experiences online, in this short time that I have been online.

    I have learned so much, from many of you…for this I am grateful. The good and the bad…ALL great learning experiences!

    Reading this and some of the comments confirms for me a few things…

    Some people leave the kool-aid stand when they learn it is poisoned…

    As I and my team of 33+ just did!

    And some know of the poison…yet go back for more…they refuse to believe that they are brainwashed, or under a spell of their charismatic, hypocritical leader.

    I personally, chose to not drink the kool-aid any more, make my own beverage and attract some great people to help me run the many stands on every corner, on every street. Life goes on people move forward.

    Wes…you screwed with good people…this negative post isn’t like me…but, I FEEL IT must be said.

    Like I said the truth will always come out…it already has, I know more will be unfolding…funny thing is you did it to yourselves…

    I guess Eric,and the many were actually right about you.
    I too was brainwashed…fooled, lied too…and it hurts big time…

    What I see here now in this blog shocked me at first. now as I re- read it…Wes…it really doesn’t…

    I think you should do the right thing…make it right…at least give my people back their 400.00 you took to promote yourself, and you…The Host… tsk…tsk…

    all the best to all of you…

    with love and respect,

    Karin Hiebert

    still the “queen bee!”

    just not of PCN OR MIM ANYMORE!

    “BEE WELL!”

    stings a little when the truth bites you in the”ass.”

    hopefully is is the last negative thing you will ever hear from me…but then we will see what happens…time will tell…

    have a great time in Nebraska WES…

    🙂

  13. karin hiebert said on June 26th, 2008 at 1:52 pm

    and on that note I pray and shower everyone here with love…including the ones sick from the kool aid…

  14. Wes Wyatt said on June 26th, 2008 at 2:26 pm

    If you print it and say it…it MUST be true!

    Your team should be proud to be led by someone SOOOOOO ethical!

    It’s not just about where you’ve been, and where you are now, but about what you learn and where you are going to go with it.

    I think Collin demonstrates that he’s going to do great things with this opportunity!

    Here’s the other one: The Bears won nine of the twelve prediction indicators, and after tying one, they lost only two. Looking at all the teams who have gone into one of the previous 40 Super Bowls, there have been twelve occasions when one of the teams has had two or fewer indicators against them. On those twelve occasions, the team with two or less indicators against them has won eleven times. The only time a team lost in this situation was when the upstart AFL Kansas City Chiefs beat the eventual four-time Super Bowl loser Minnesota Vikings in Super Bowl IV.The magic number is then twelve for the Chicago Bears. They want to become the twelfth team in a row to win the Super Bowl because of their significantly superior defense. And they want to become the twelfth team (out of 13) in Super Bowl history to win the Super Bowl having lost two or fewer of our prediction indicators.

    I just wanted to take time to say I appreciate each and every one of you. Each day we have to decide what we are going to put into our businesses. For many of you websites is a part-time venture and you work regular with families and many obligations.
