I knew Mickey wouldn't win from the start. Not because he isn't qualified to test, but he isn't a tool. Sony isn't gonna pick who is most qualified, but who is going to pick up the most viewers so they can see the crap they'll do next. I certainly expect Big Fezeek to be on the for a while because he attracts attention. You think you'll ever see who wins these things ever again? Probably not. They make this job out to be a lot more than it is. As a Tester your only job is to make sure the game works properly(the guys who did New Vegas sucked). And by playing the game, you will find them. Of course you can't be expected to find them all.
Yet these guys are making it seem like you need all these special skills lol. You need perception and patience. You don't need to dress up in a fat suit and wander around for some stupid "lesson." The drill thing was kind of cool, but following orders to the root is to be expected at ANY job
Working as a team is to be EXPECTED. The only thing that separates any of the contestants is the ability to find, judge, evaluate, and confirm bugs/glitches/etc.
Yes it is a foot in the door and gives you a chance to go higher up, but going higher means you have a certain skill for something else or you have education useful in some other part of the market. The people on the show don't expect anyone to really go beyond the little fodder job they have in place as a tester.
The other thing that doesn't really have much qualification is being one of those guys at cons who just talk about the game. Of course you need to be good with people, but hey.
Long story short: show is just a sham and it angers me how they act like they are seeing who is the most "qualified" of the contestants. Big Fezeek may be ass, but he does seem to know games. Gaymer seems to know what hes doing, but the rest? Enthusiasm does not equal qualifications.
