Ultimate Eye Candy
Verizon wanted to create a buzz before introducing its FiOS TV service to New Jersey consumers. WSITS presented the Ultimate Eye Candy online game show, a reality-based program that married elements of popular TV shows: homemade videos, celebrity judges and viewer participation through video upload and voting. Participants could upload videos describing their ultimate eye candy or attend an event where street teams filmed videos. On ultimateeyecandy.com, visitors could view the videos and vote for their favorites. “Survivor” contestant Stephenie Lagrossa was one of three celebrity judges who responded comically to each video. The contest ran for six weeks before the announcement that it was sponsored by Verizon.
