Sigh, I wish we had something like this in the Philippines.

Check out “Gold Rush,” the groundbreaking interactive reality game from reality TV king Mark Burnett. It’s now live on

It’s a game that tests your pop culture knowledge, offering clues by pointing you to TV episodes you can watch and magazines you can read.

See, Mark gets it — it’s his first time to produce an online competition, and the level of integration of New Media with print and TV is amazing to see. Let’s see if this online competition can get more people to watch those shows and read those magazines, and if it will encourage more Netizens to explore AOL.

You need to be a US resident to register for the actual “Gold Rush” competition and get the chance to win the US$1, 000, 000 grand prize. Of course, you can still explore the site and enjoy the online games and other interactive content even if you can’t participate in the competition.
