Stunt Buxx CEO Ryan Bennett welcomes Mitch Berger (right)
No one watches TV commercials anymore and this is an innovative way for sponsors to reconnect with their audience. I feel like Stunt Buxx is ahead of the curve.
Vancouver, BC June 11, 2012
Stunt Buxx, the first Viral Media Game Show, announced today the signing of Super Bowl champion NFL kicker, Mitch Berger, as their inaugural Game Show Host and Viral Media Playmaker. Ryan Bennett, Stunt Buxx CEO and co-founder, stated that Berger will be challenging Stunt Buxx contestants in the game show and handing out cash and prizes in exclusive featured contests.
“Stunt Buxx is blazing a trail,” said Berger. “And the opportunity to host an internet game show intrigued me. I co-hosted my own live TV show in Minneapolis, and I’ve been a guest host on numerous radio shows, but an internet game show is the wave of the future. No one watches TV commercials anymore and this is an innovative way for sponsors to reconnect with their audience. I feel like Stunt Buxx is ahead of the curve.”
Berger comes to Stunt Buxx with an impressive resume as the most successful and decorated Canadian-born NFL player in history. A two-time Pro Bowl selection and a first team All-Pro, he is also one of the only kickers ever named to the All-Madden Team. His fifteen outstanding seasons in the NFL culminated in a Super Bowl championship with the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2009.
Now serving as an NFL analyst for ‘Off The Record’ on TSN, TSN Radio 1050 in Toronto, and Team 1040 Sports Radio in Vancouver, Berger is also a venture capitalist with Stadnyk Partners in Vancouver as well as an investor in several other businesses throughout North America.
“The ideal host for the first Viral Media Game Show needed to be a people person and a natural host,” said Bennett. “We wanted someone who could not only think fast on his feet to react to some of our fun, but unpredictable Stunt Buxx challenges – and who better than a pro athlete for that – but also a person who is dynamic, engaging, and who can relate well to everybody. Mitch is all of those things. He’s articulate, charismatic, and the ladies love him – with or without his Super Bowl ring.”
Asked what qualities he brings to the internet game show, Berger replied, “I’m easy-going. I like to keep things fun and help make people feel comfortable. I believe a good host needs those qualities so he can get the best out of his contestants. It’s important to remember that the contestants are the stars.”
Berger’s first hosting assignment for Stunt Buxx will be right in his comfort zone – punting. He’ll be challenging contestants to grab a garbage can, march out a minimum of ten yards, and unload their most creative punt into the can. Berger then shows them how it’s done by dropping in his own jaw-dropping punt. “Just like Michael Jordan, this time however, it’s nothing but can,” said Bennett. The challenge will take Berger back to his roots. It’s being shot at John Oliver Park in North Delta, BC, where Berger grew up and played community football.
“Mitch always brings his A-game, whether it’s on the field, in the broadcast booth, or in business,” Bennett continued. “We’re super stoked about signing him to our Stunt Buxx team. He’s a perfect fit.”
“I’m really interested in rewarding people for having a good time – challenging themselves, and being creative,” Berger stated. “This could be a really good opportunity for me if the show taps into the incredible potential of the internet like I think it can.”
The Stunt Buxx Challenge trailer featuring inaugural Host and Viral Media Playmaker Mitch Berger will be released June 22nd on the Stunt Buxx website: //www.stuntbuxx.com” title=”Stunt Buxx – the First Online Viral Media Game Show”>http://www.stuntbuxx.com.
