MTV Searching For Cryptohosts

Posted by: Loren Coleman on February 8th, 2006

Would you like to be the host of a new show on MTV about cryptozoology?

Get that videotape of yourself remastered for a MTV audition. Okay. Ready. Set. Go.

Your co-host could be somebody like this:

MTV Cryptozoology

MTV has put out a “casting call” that they have entitled “Do you love Monsters?”

Here’s what they want:

We are looking for two young Crypto enthusiasts, 18 and older, to host an upcoming fun, hip, and off the wall series that looks inside the world of cryptozoology, creatures, legends, and the people who investigate them. The hosts should be really into cryptozoology, and have an interest or even borderline obsession with undiscovered creatures, mythical beasts, and unclassified species. You should have a unique personality and be comfortable in front of a camera.

If you are interested, MTV wants you to send them an email at and provide the following information:

Name and contact information.
Why you would be the right person to host our show.
Why you love MONSTERS.
Why you believe or disbelieve in their existence.
How you got interested in cryptozoology.
What your favorite cryptid is and why?
What, if any, monster hunts you’ve been on and what adventures you had.
Some background on who you are.

Or you can send a VHS tape to the following MTV address:

Wade Rudolph
MTV Networks
770 Broadway, 10-02F
10th Floor
New York, NY 10003

I’m not sure whom the “two young Crypto enthusiasts” will be, but one of them could be you.

I do have a suggestion, however. There’s a hip Japanese-American singer/performer of the hot group Kayo Dot that’s going to audition. She’s quite a cryptozoologist in her own right, and has the kind of cryptobicultural coolness that would play well on MTV. Her cryptoband even use to have tee-shirts of the Japanese cryptid tzuchinoko and now features another one with a cryptotheme, designed with a hidden wonder.

How could MTV go wrong with Mia Matsumiya on violin, bells, and MTV? She appears to be a beautiful real-life character right out of a Japanese animation flick. Here’s a few of her photos, one while on an investigation.

Cryptomundo will keep you updated on how this MTV quest evolves. Will one of the co-hosts be you?

Loren Coleman About Loren Coleman
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.
