After weeks of screening, the Pulse team has finally chosen a final shortlist of 10 contestants.
Pulse TV Strivia is one of Pulse’s more popular shows; it is most known for viral content and over time, has inspired many different adaptations. After over a year of asking those infamous questions, Pulse TV alumnus Chuey Chu dropped the mic in March and that role was left open.
To fill this role and discover the next Pulse TV Strivia Presenter, the team created Pulse TV StriviaSearch. It serves two purposes; apart from finding the next face of the show, the idea was to create a platform that would offer the opportunity to as many as were daring and eloquent enough to take up the mantle.
To this end, auditions were held on Instagram where interested participants were invited to creatively show why they deserved to be the next Strivia presenter.
After weeks of taking, examining and screening submissions, the Pulse Team finally compiled a shortlist of 10 contestants to compete for the role of Pulse TV Strivia Presenter.
Meet the final 10 contestants in the Pulse TV #StriviaSearch.
