Audrey Middleton, since appearing on CBS’s Big Brother 17, has utilized her platform to create a community around a new competition for the “average viewer” but not the “average mind.” Sequester provides the opportunity for super fans of reality television, who may not fit the mold of “type casting” to partake in a competition that embodies the same essence of reality shows they love, but with a twist!
Sequester not only provides a thrill for gamers, but also brings reality television down to earth. Every season of Sequester features multiple personalities from a variety of popular reality shows, providing fans the chance to compete against their favorite stars! Past contestants include Tiffany Rousso (BB18), Michelle Meyer (BB18), Andrew Gordon (BB12), Sindy WithanS (BBCAN 3 and 5), Suzette Amaya (BBCAN 1), Will Jardell (ANTM), Jamie Leigh Reichert (Catching Kelce), and Jay G (MTV Real World, The Challenge).
A bimonthly competition, Sequester begins with 12-16 complete strangers from all over the world, and drops them into an online pressure cooker. Different twists and competitions are held throughout the game, allowing the contestants the opportunity to earn safety and influence the pace of the game. Each night for one week, the contestants strategize to vote out their opponents until only three remain. Those three battle it out in a final competition, with the top two advancing to the finale. On the last night of the season, the final two each make their case to the jury of eliminated players for why they deserve to win the game. Ultimately, the jury holds all the power, and votes to crown the winner of Sequester.
Sequester is 100% Live, and viewable by an audience on www.SequesterAccess.com for two hours each night for one week.
Since its inception in March 2016, nearly 100 people have competed on the show. Sequester has developed a thriving community of participants and viewers alike. Many members have become true friends and attended in-person Sequester meet-ups.

If you are moving around too much you can get lost in the labyrinth and miss opportunities to campaign and strike your opponents.

We are seeking the funds and support to take the platform that has been online for a year and transforming it into a LIVE ACTION format so that we may provide an even more authentic experience for both the competitor and viewer.
To successfully operate the show the way we are dreaming it to be it will require a few fundamental things. We dream of exceeding our long term goal, but will be pursuing this dream in increments for now! Anything and everything you contribute will immediately go towards the cost of things as listed and regular progress posts will be made!
