Lots of people take off work every March to watch the NCAA Tournament. But what if you could actually get paid to watch instead? The website CableTV.com is looking for a “die-hard, basketball-crazed maniac” to watch 40 hours of college basketball as its “resident basketball binge-watcher.” The fan who gets hired will be paid $1000, which breaks down to about 17 games at $50 a pop. Applicants need to be at least 18, have a strong social media presence, and make a 200-word pitch about why they deserve the gig – video pitches much preferred. The application can be found at cabletv.com.
⚠️ Attention college basketball fanatics!⚠️ We want to pay YOU $1000 to be our brand’s resident basketball binge-watcher for this years tournament!🏀
