With more than 35,000 votes cast over 10 days, the Buffalo Sabres Emcee Contest has been whittled down to a field of 10. At stake is the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to become an in-game host for 10 Sabres home games during the 2007-08 regular season.
Following are the 10 contestants:
The 10 remaining contestants will now be invited back to complete a series of tests in front of a panel of judges. The judges will then choose the final four based on the results of the following four challenges:
* 30-second interview with a surprise guest
* 15-second introduction of a promotion
* 30-second commentary of a “cam” -- kiss, dance or fan.
* 30-second open talent segment.
The top four finalists will compete during portions of two Sabres home games on Thursday, October 11 and Saturday, October 13. The winner will be announced live during Buffalo’s game against Columbus on Friday, October 19.
Videos of the 10 contestants, along with a personality questionnaire that each finalist completed, are available by clicking on his/her picture above. Contestants submitted their own two-minute video or attended a live casting call at HSBC Arena on August 4.
