Each time the competition for Charlie Sheen‘s social media summer intern has progressed to the next level, a host of localized media stories have appeared profiling the lucky(?) remaining contestants.
As of this week, the competition is down to a final group of 50, courtesy of a YouTube-powered phase three. Among the remaining gluttons for punishment are:
– Recent LA transplant Krystelle Lorraine, who has started a social media consulting firm called Modern Muse Online. [Hartford Courant]
– Canadians Phil Pallen, currently studying in Florida (pictured), and Sepy Bazazzi, a 25-year-old west coaster who does social media work for a restaurant chain. [Vancouver Sun]
– Columbia College student Mike Zima, 24. As the last standing Illinois contestant – may now benefit from Sheen’s newfound love for the Windy City. [NBC Chicago]
Sheen now takes over from Internships.com to make the final decision. No longer in the running is Julia Hatmaker, an east coast journalist we wrote about previously.
