The Tester 3 cast revealed

Another batch of industry hopefuls have been revealed for Sony's upcoming season of The Tester 3. Numbering twelve in all, the group includes the winner of last year's community casting contest, Arin “Egoraptor” Hanson, and twenty-somethings from across the US.

Acquaint yourself with PSN's newest reality personalities in today's cast video:

This season, participants will play, invent, and argue for an opportunity to join Sony's Santa Monica Studio as a production associate. In addition to gainful employment, the winner will also take home a 2012 Ford Focus Titanium, a 3D Bravia TV, PS3, and a $5,000 bonus.

Series host Meredith Molinari will be making a return for the third season. So too will panelists Adrianne Curry and SCEA's senior release manager Brent Gocke. Similar to previous seasons, the show will also include cameos from other notable developers and other video game icons.

The first episode of The Tester 3 will debut for download on February 7 on the PlayStation Network. Full bios for each contestant have been posted to The Tester website.

    Fave Character: Megan Man X ... ... ... Are you fucking kidding me? I hope that's a typo and not a "hardcore gamer" that is good at shooting first.

    I was pleased with the top two of Season 1 and please with the top three of Season 2. War Princess was my fav girl and it was a tie between the two top guys from Season 1 as who was my fav. I can see enjoying myself with War Princess the most however.

    burnNebilheim eh? I legitimately want to go watch a Jersey Shore marathon just to numb this bs out of my mind lol.

    The Raptor will feed on their mangled bones.

    Guilty pleasure. The show makes me feel icky but it entertains. I recommend watching an educational documentary afterwards to balance things out.

    Huh. Strange, as I became a tester by applying for the job and then doing the job interview. Because it's a... job.

    Meanwhile, Jersey Shore still exists.

    Ego Raptor and the Tattoo girl seem like the most normal and believable people in the lineup. I honestly think the rest are actors hired as filler to make more demographics watch the show.

    Egoraptor! *Salutes*

    Egoraptor seems like a legitimately nice guy. not to mention, he knows his shit. check out his Sequelitis series on YouTube. only 2 episodes so far, but it really shows that he knows what makes a good game.

    I liked the first two series but these people look annoying as f*ck
  • BladedFalcon - January 5, 2012 11:36 a.m.

    Well, I kinda had the same impression with the cast of the second season... And they urned out to be more fun that the ones of the first to me.
  • oneshotfinch - January 5, 2012 10:58 a.m.

    Egoraptor is one of the contestants, I don't care about quality. I just want to see what he does.
  • CrashmanX - January 5, 2012 11:12 a.m.

    Egoraptor is on The Tester, ratings through the f'ing roof.
  • bboyd - January 5, 2012 11:22 a.m.

    Higher than they've eve been before, at least. All the others made me want to vomit, but I'll be watching just for Egoraptor.
  • BladedFalcon - January 5, 2012 11:26 a.m.

    Excuse my ignorance... but who's this Egoraptor, and what makes him that special/Popular?
  • ParagonT - January 5, 2012 11:31 a.m.

    Very popular animator. You can see some work on Newgrounds.
