Home video your way to Wild Card Poker II

Keep it short, keep it appropriate, and keep the defaming and copyright infringement to a minimum. But keep your home video interesting enough, and you could be one of 12 players taking a shot at a record-setting $2 million prize under the bright lights of Calvin Ayre's Wild Card Poker II.

Season II of the successful reality-TV show is soon to begin filming, and they're going to break some rules.

"Season II leaves behind the classic reality TV show format in favor of a much more modern and exciting approach," says Calvin Ayre, the show's host and founder of Bodog.com. "Bodog is known for its innovation and creativity, and we have set out to take the industry to a whole new level.

"Calvin Ayre Wild Card Poker Season II will be the first and only show of its kind to reward today's social networkers with the chance to earn spots on the show and walk away with a cool $2 million grand prize."

And they're looking to get their money's worth talent-wise, so they're opening up the audition process to anyone with access to a video camera and an eye for selling themselves, with video auditions being solicited for uploading on Bodog.com.

If you think that's you, here's what you do:

Open a Bodog account. Make a one-minute video that shows why you deserve to be on TV. Upload your video by April 28 and fill out the audition form. Then go play some poker, as you'll need 300 Bodog points to be eligible.

And there you have it. If you make it through to the next round, you'll be contacted, and if all goes well from there, finally whisked to the set in Antigua and to the possibility of living the life of a millionaire.

If you're less inclined to audition on video, though, you can still qualify on Bodog.com, with tournaments every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday at 9:05 p.m. (EST).

Buy-ins are $5+50¢ or 300 Bodog Poker points, and the top five go on to battle it out in a final tournament on April 28, with the winner filling one of the coveted 12 spots on Calvin Ayre Wild Card Poker II.

The show will air later this year on ION Television in the U.S. and on BodogTV. Last year, Bodog.com pro Josh Arieh took the $500,000 grand prize.
