It was announced today that Audrina Patridge (MTV's The Hills) has signed on as host of the YOBI.tv (www.YOBI.tv) Network. YOBI.tv is a fast growing next-gen global talent contest network that offers fame and fortune to anyone, anywhere, anytime combining user-generated content and talent competitions with social networking for a revolutionary new entertainment platform. Launched in June 2008, YOBI.tv gave away over $100,000 in cash and prizes to the winners of the first four talent contest channels for Singing, Filmmaking, Comedy, and Photography.
"There is so much undiscovered talent out there," says Patridge, "I am excited to take part in such a dynamic platform that will give opportunity to so many." She joins eighth-season American Idol finalist, Matt Giraud, who has been tapped to host the YOBI.tv channel, "MAKE THE CUT," which is an upcoming original singing competition.
The Grand Prize Winner will literally 'make the cut.' He or she will cut a record at a state-of-the-art studio with the coaching of Giraud and other industry professionals. "MAKE THE CUT" will combine the thrill of reality show contests with the instant gratification of the web, building off of YOBI.tv's mission to redefine online entertainment.
Additional network channel, "YOBI GIVES," is hosted by Danielle Ryan and actor, Jeremy Sumpter (Friday Night Lights). Since 2005, Co-founder of One Village One World (OVOW), activist, Danielle Ryan, has participated in projects that empower women and support the end of extreme global poverty. She has traveled to impoverished African villages and has developed campaigns that aim to allow the villagers to become self-sufficient such as providing equipment and materials with which villagers can create goods to sell and trade.
YOBI.tv will continue to expand by adding more channels and celebrity content throughout 2010.
