Every now and then we get requests from TV production companies asking if we’d help them find potential contestants for gameshows or willing participants for documentaries. For some compers this kind of exposure is not for them, but for others the chance to win prizes on TV or share their hobby is an exciting opportunity. Here are two such opportunities for you to mull over.
