MTV is looking for a new Kiwi VJ!
Could you hold your own in a freestyle rap battle against Tinie Tempah? Convince Miley to teach you how to twerk at the VMAs? Could you handle a night out with the Geordies on their home turf?
If you can say yes to the above and think you can do it with a healthy dose of Kiwi flair and ingenuity, then MTV wants YOU!
MTV is on the hunt for a fresh Kiwi face to join Aussie VJ, Kate Peck, as the face of the channel. The successful candidate will join Kate at MTV HQ in Sydney and take part in all aspects of being an MTV VJ.
From interviewing stars from around the world, attending red carpet events and blogging across the MTV platforms, our new VJ will do it all and star on MTV, MTV Hits and MTV Classic on SKY as well as MTV, MTV Music and MTV Dance in Australia.
MTV has helped develop presenting careers for global superstars including Russell Brand, Ruby Rose, Alexa Chung, Darren McMullen and New Zealand’s own favourite, Jay Reeve.
“I’m so pumped to find an NZ wingman! The question is, who’s got what it takes to be my buddy? Gotta warn you – this isn’t for the faint hearted so you better be prepared to get knee deep in MTV!” says presenter Kate Peck.
To enter, you’ll need to follow @mtvnz on instagram and submit a video via instagram with the hashtag #CONVINCEKATE before entries close on April 7. For more info, all the terms and conditions can be found here.
MTV will then select a shortlist with the Top ten announced on April 30. The finalists will be flown to Auckland to meet with Kate and the MTV crew to partake in up to two days of crazy challenges.
Details are under lock and key but tasks from Ruby Rose’s VJ appointment included doing shots with Kickass’s Bam Margera and kissing strangers in the street.
The Top ten will also fulfil a variety of MTV VJ tasks including recording MTV News, staging talent interviews and taking over the MTV social media accounts. The winner will then be announced at a party in Auckland on Friday May 2.
