Street Fighter V, FGC personalities, and reality TV collide.
ELEAGUE has revealed a new spin on their upcoming Street Fighter V Invitational for 2018. Get ready for ELEAGUE The Challenger: Street Fighter V, a five-part reality TV series that will feature “an entertaining clash of personalities, as cameras follow seven contestants in an Atlanta-area house while they face off in Capcom’s classic fighting game Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition.” The show will follow the participants throughout the greater Atlanta area as they complete “challenge” activities to earn a spot to compete in the SFV Invitational event (starting in June).
“Seven contestants. One house. One champion.”
So, who are the participants of this esports-inspired reality show…?
You’ll get to see Commander Jesse, LowTierGod, Sherry Jenix, gllty, BigBossDayasha, RobTV, and JB fight it out in the Street Fighter V house. Tasty Steve and Sajam will join as co-hosts.
