In May of last year, the first season of the esports reality show Gamerz promised to award a six-month professional contract to five up-and-coming Counter-Strike: Global Offensive players. The show, hosted by Gamingzone Entertainment in Sweden, filmed over the course of three weeks. It broadcasted live daily episodes featuring 12 contestants living together in a gaming house, facing off in drills and challenges that resulted in elimination for the losers. Think Big Brother, except it's live, and the top prize is a pro gaming contract for the last five standing.
