Fox Reality, the only all reality, all the time channel, gears up for season 3 of the first comprehensive online fantasy game dedicated to reality television, Fox Reality′s "Fantasy Reality Challenge." Ready for play at www.foxreality.com, the game brings the exploding worlds of online fantasy to enthusiastic fans of reality television, through a real-time challenge that lets participants earn points based on the performance of their selected players from some of America′s most popular reality series including "Survivor: Cook Islands," "Amazing Race," "America′s Next Top Model," "So You Think You Can Dance" and "The Biggest Loser." With registration beginning immediately, the game will advance as all five highlighted series have aired their season debut.
To add further excitement to the game, reality fans can play along with reality stars and compare their picks and standings. Returning participating stars include TV personalities such as "Reality Remix" host Kennedy and correspondent Mark Long, as well as Jenna Morasca of "Survivor," among others.
Fantasy sports in America is a $50 million business with more than 15 million people playing every year. The vast majority of 18-34 year-olds who play spend two to three times the amount of time online than their non-fantasy-playing counterparts. Fox Reality′s "Fantasy Reality Challenge" brings the thrill of online gaming to the fans of reality television.
Fox Reality′s "Fantasy Reality Challenge" is LIVE and accessible for signups through the "Games" section on the home page of www.FoxReality.com. Users become active participants with the programming by selecting up to six actual reality television contestants and then earn points based on the performance of those same people within their television competitions.
Each week, as contestants from the TV shows are eliminated, Fantasy Reality players accumulate points based upon who remains on their rosters. If a Fantasy Reality user opts to alter his or her roster, they can do so, but any points earned by someone who′s dropped are lost forever. The longer a contestant lasts, the more points earned. Users can invite their friends into private groups where they can play against each other and chat or the game can be played against the entire Fox Reality community.
