Recruiting a new member for a sponsored girl gaming team
can't be easy. When Eekers (one of Ubisoft's Frag Dolls) left the line-up last
summer, a nationwide search for her replacement rolled into motion, requiring everything from a gaming CV to
glamour shots. Months later, when all but the hopefuls have forgotten the empty space to be filled, the shortlisted
candidates have been announced and the final selection procedure outlined.
All eight of the finalists will be flown to San Francisco to "join the existing Frag Dolls in a weekend of playing games and interviewing", a party that sounds like good fodder for frazzled nerves -- especially when you add in the filming. For this is no ordinary interview -- instead, the whole thing will be covered by Internet TV site GameTrailers, providing a reality TV glimpse into the mysterious world of girl gamers.
