The Golf Channel now is accepting applications for participants in the Big Break 8. The deadline is March 31, 2007 and filming will take place in the summer of 2007.
I think The Big Break may be one of the most insipid show on television. TGC’s insistence on emphasizing the players’ catty comments makes no sense in the context of the program. It’s a skills challenge, not a social game. Snide comments on Survivor make sense because the players vote each other out based on social connections. On The Big Break, the players can all hate each others’ guts, but it won’t make any difference. The last one to break the pane of glass is out.
Still, if you’re a single digit handicapper and have no shame, you can download an application. You just might be the next Justin Peters or Danielle Amiee. Or you could do something more dignified, like playing a round naked on a Sunday morning.
