Owned Entertainment held it's new reality show auditions on Sunday June 22nd, 2008.
The auditions were held at Big John McCarthy's Ultimate Training Academy in Valencia, California (www.BJMUTA.com).
In case you don't know what the show is all about, here is a description from Owned's website:
"The show will follow a select group of established fighters, upcoming fighters and other MMA professionals. The show is being produced by Owned Entertainment, Inc and Jason Chambers, from History Channel's Human Weapon and partnered with IMMAE. The central location for the show will be at Big John McCarthy's Ultimate Training Academy."

Sitting at a table (from left to right) was Jason Chambers (producer), James Hergott (Owned's President) and Harold Hergott (James' father). MMA veterans and noobs were sitting nervously across from the Owned crew and were doing their best to answer some tough questions. But, what could aspiring reality show stars expect? The auditions were for a reality show after all and the questions had to fit the show's format. Fighters struggled to answer questions like, "describe an embarrassing moment in your life". The guys at Owned had to make sure that they weren't going to get a bunch of whiny prima donnas for the show. The pool of people that showed up were some pretty with it and professional people from MMA fighters to boxing instructors.

Our own Jen Leigh (a writer for MMA-Underground.com) even auditioned for the reality show. Big John McCarthy was there taking care of business at his huge training facility. The Owned guys were great and it looks like they're going to put together a smash hit once they have the right people for the show. They are certainly making all the right moves and aligning themselves with the right people.
We'll keep you posted as the reality show progresses!
