After three wildly popular seasons, OUTtv announces the return of its hot male model search, COVERguy as production is set to begin shortly in Montreal.
New this year: Host Mathieu Chantelois and his team of manhunters invite you chez lui, to Montreal, where this year’s search for the next COVERguy will take place. After judging the auditions (taking place July 5 and 6), a jury composed of fashion experts will select the 24 finalists. These finalists will then spend the summer parading before the judges and cameras to prove but one thing: that they have what it takes to land a contract with the prestigious Quebec underwear company 3G Actualwear. The winner will also have a guest appearance on the TV series The Lair and grace the cover of several magazines.
Originally from Montreal, Chantelois is overjoyed to be returning to his hometown. “All over Canada we hear that the most beautiful men in the country can be found in Quebec. I hope that this edition will prove that.”
“Montreal men also claim to be the sexiest and we have a surprise in store” says show creator Larry Peloso. “It’s one thing to have the body and have the look, but this year we have a whole new challenge to see who really has what it takes!”
Produced by Giant Productions and broadcast on OUTtv in Canada (as well as in Australia, Europe and the HERE! network in the United States), COVERguy is a competition for all men regardless of sexual orientation. Mathieu Chantelois applauds the interest that heterosexual men give to this uniquely gay show: “We’ve gone beyond the ghetto,” he says. “Of the 28 finalists last year, 20 of them were straight. COVERguy, above all, is about having fun!”
Shooting this summer, the fourth season of COVERguy will be broadcast all over Canada on OUTtv this fall. The winner will be announced in November 2008. The manhunt is on!
Aspiring models from accross the country are invited, as of now, to send in their photos and contact information through the website www.coverguy.tv in order to secure an audition.
