Project Alpha – Bloggers on TV

This has become my new addiction!!

Project Alpha is Malaysia’s first online TV Show about bloggers.

It is a fast paced, fast cut, lifestyle-driven show tailor made for the online market which provides increased recognition of the expanding role and influence of bloggers across the nation.

Check the latest episode out here:

Or have a look at the Facebook page, where you can interact, and make comments.

If you haven’t yet watched an episode, you need to do so now – maybe start with Series 2 since it’s current. (Omigod, I swear I got heart palpitations just seeing KLIA Malaysian International Airport – I really have a thing for Malaysia. No really – I watched a lame reality show tonight called something like Time Bandits, as it was set in KL).

But back to the series. I’ll again let the Facebook page tell us:

Project Alpha emphasizes that every blogger is unique in their own way, each gaining popularity and credibility as opinion leaders on various topics including celebrity news, fashion trends, travel and entertainment. It is set to be the first online TV show to look beyond the screen to unveil the real faces behind Malaysia’s top bloggers, taking a sneak peek into their lives – who they are, how they live, what makes them tick and from where they derive their inspiration – to capture the attention and interest of millions of online readers on a daily basis.

Each blogger gets 7 episodes, so you can follow your fave on YouTube or jump around (as the House of Pain says).

See the bloggers take off their fake eyelashes!! See their messy rooms where they blog! See them sweat in gyms or scuba dive in Sipadan!

I already knew of Kenny Sia and Nicole Kiss (who USED to go out with Kenny).. but I didn’t know Audrey of fourfeetnine (nor that she goes out with Timothy Tiah of Nuffnang!! who has his own blog btw), or Redmummy.

Episode 5/7 with Nicole Kiss – she gets a hug off the free hug guy…and I did a double-take!! It’s only where I walk every day – in Newtown! Opposite the church and flower shop, near the Dendy. And then she says her fave place in Australia is… CANBERRA??!!  WTF??!!

But I again digress.

It is hosted by Jojo Struys, (and BTW – she’s HAWT!!!)

Season 1 of Project Alpha was aired on www.nuffnang.com.my/projectalpha and www.hitz.fm daily for 7 weeks starting on 18 September 2009. Season 2 of the show has just started airing from 19 April 2010 – just a week ago.

Which means, there are a lot of great episodes left in Series 2 for you and I to enjoy!

PS: if you read the posts of certain Malaysian/Singaporean bloggers, usually female, you’ll pick up on their liberal usage of the term “wtf”. It’s the one case where these otherwise wholesome people seem a little, er, crass? It actually expresses irony or sarcasm, stating the opposite of whatever goes before it in a sentence. (Whereas I prefer to use it just to state disbelief). The use of wtf, too, is addictive.
