In case you haven’t received an invitation or read elsewhere, here is the press release related to the History Channel’s new competitive show “Full Metal Jousting.”
The new reality TV series Full Metal Jousting is asking for the “toughest and bravest” experienced horsemen to apply for a spot on the show and a chance to win the $100,000 grand prize.
The show, presented by The History Channel and the producers of “Top Shot” and “The Ultimate Fighter,” aims to recreate the sport as it was played in medieval times. Competitors will be taught to joust and armed with armor, lances and horses.
Applicants need not have jousting experience but must be proficient riders, physically fit, at least 21 years old, and a U.S. resident. The deadline to apply is July 20.
Applicants may email FullMetalJousting@gmail.com with your name, phone number, a recent photo and a brief description of why you think you can be History’s first Full Metal Jouster. See the Pilgrim Films and Television website for more information.
Here is another email I got from them today with some of the same and some different information.
My name is Jaime Cesarz and I am a Casting Associate From Los Angeles. We are casting a new show from HISTORY and the producers of Top Shot and The Ultimate Fighter. We are looking for America’s toughest and bravest for their new competition series Full Metal Jousting. Yes, we said JOUSTING. If you are a skilled horseback rider and have the heart of a warrior, then you might have what it takes to win the $100,000 grand prize.
This hard-hitting competition will recreate the raw, crushing force of hardcore jousting battles by arming 16 fierce competitors with lances, armor and a 2,000-pound war horse – all charging through an arena with one goal in mind – to become champion.
You don’t need to be an experienced jouster, but you DO need strength, determination and the desire to win.
We teach you how to joust. You crush the competition.
I’d love if you forwarded this email to anyone you know who may be interested so we can get the word out and find some fierce competitors.
