screener for MTV reality show applicants
If you've ever watched any made-for-MTV reality show, you're familiar with the absolute drudges of humanity. The really, horribly depressing thing, however, is to consider what kinds of horrible, attention-hungry, desperate, sad, and obnoxious people were deemed too unexciting to appear on these programs.
Your job would be to sift through video applications in which these horrible people highlight their worst qualities, and to filter out the horrible-yet-dull in favor of the awful-yet-good-for-ratings.
And then you'd be stuck with the results of your decisions for the rest of that series' run, and possibly for increasingly-desperate spin-offs.
