Dream job? Company to hire professional Netflix binge-watcher

To celebrate "National Binge Day" on September 25, company Online Casinos is hiring a "Professional Binge Watcher" to watch three Netflix shows

"We want to get to the bottom of a popular debate: Which series truly is the most binge-worthy on Netflix? Squid Game, Stranger Things, or Wednesday…?," the gaming company wrote in a press release. "We’re looking for the ultimate TV binger to step up to the challenge."

The lucky winner will be paid $2,000 to report back to Online Casinos, as well as $500 to cover snacks and a Netflix subscription. 

The winner will need to score each television series out of 10, based on the following criteria:

  1. Bingeability rating - likeliness of you watching more than 1 episode in each sitting
  2. Distractibility rating - how often you found yourself distracted during the episodes? (work emails, cooking, texting your pals)
  3. Snoozability rating - likeliness to send you to sleep Zzz
  4. ‘Take two’ rating - likeliness that you’d re-watch the series
  5. The grand finale rating - just how wow'd you were at the season finale

The winner will need to watch every series over a period of a month.
