Australia’s Next Top Poker Hostess

Posted at 14:02 2011-01-06

The call is out: Could you be the next Lynn Gilmartin, Kristy Arnett or Gloria Balding? One of the best jobs around is up for grabs and how do I know? I had a taste of it in 2010 at the APPT stops: Auckland, Cebu and Sydney. All behind the camera for me, but AMAZING never the less. There is an opportunity for an Australasian-based hostess to follow the PokerStars.net Asia Pacific Poker Tour in 2011 and bring back all the excitement from each event, capturing every thrilling moment. Next year you could find yourself partying at a Jay Z/U2 concert with the likes of Ali Khalil, xMONSTERxDONGx and PokerNetwork’s own POTY Daniel Neilson. I lived the dream in 2010, now it’s your turn. It’s not all fun and games on the poker road, there is a lot of work behind the scenes. It’s not all sunsets and cocktails! The girls make it look easy!

You've got to be outgoing, hard working, creative, charismatic, and approachable. Not only will you be on camera, but you'll also be working as a producer as well. Production experience is not required, but you will be required to learn about producing web-based video content. You must be prepared to put in long hours and work hard at each tournament stop. Don't worry if you don't have a lot of poker knowledge, it's helpful, but a passion for poker and learning more about the game is what is required.

Here’s a taste of one of my favourite videos that we made in Cebu - hopefully it’s enough to whet your appetite.

So put your best poker face forward and mock up a video of your skills along with a resume to PokerNews. Applications for this dream position close January 20.
