Announced today through a BNQT Exclusive, digital technology and entertainment company, MEGASTAR welcomes Jeb Corliss, one of the world’s foremost and best-known BASE jumpers and wingsuit pilots, as a judge for the first MEGASTAR competition, which started back on September 30, 2017.
“Corliss’ inherent passion for his sport and all aspects of life make him an ideal judge for the MEGASTAR competition. His goal is to discover passionate contestants who dedicate their entire lives to their craft until they become a master at it,” states MEGASTAR through a press release.
Over the last 20 years, Corliss has made more than 1,000 jumps, from the likes of the Eiffel Tower, Golden Gate Bridge, Angel Falls in Venezuela, the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and BASE jumped into the pre-game show of Super Bowl XXXVIII for Aerosmith.
Corliss became a viral sensation and household name in the action sports community when in July 2011, he flew feet from the ground in the Swiss Alps, an event that was captured on camera and broadcast on ABC’s 20/20. Two months later, Corliss swooped through an arch in the side of China’s iconic Tianmen Mountain, in front of a live television audience of millions and resulted in millions of views on Facebook after the event.
As a MEGASTAR Judge, Corliss will be marketing and promoting the app across his social media platforms, engaging with Fans and providing feedback to Performers that are participating in the competition so be sure to go follow Corliss on all his social media channels.
“I am excited to be part of the MEGASTAR competition which will challenge conventional thinking and push the boundaries for global talent identification, in much the same way I have done with BASE jumping and wingsuit flying,” said Corliss. “I am looking forward to seeing what talent can be uncovered and how a global audience can propel an unknown talent to become a worldwide MEGASTAR.”
The MEGASTAR competition is a mobile-first talent competition, featuring Performers of categories that range from base jumping to choir group performances, competing to win $1 million U.S. dollars, a role in a film and several other prizes.
It is being promoted by a massive multi-faceted marketing and media program throughout six weeks of heats, three Finals Rounds, Grand Finale week and the Final.
The first global audition heat commenced on September 30, 2017 with the Final scheduled for December 2017.
“Jeb Corliss is a genuine global MEGASTAR who strives to be extraordinary at what he does and how he lives his life, every day,” said Managing Director, CEO and Co-Founder of MEGASTAR, Dion Sullivan. “We are very excited that Jeb has joined the MEGASTAR team. He personifies MEGASTAR’s transformation of the talent competition genre by removing the boundaries of stage and screen. MEGASTAR is truly about all talent.”
