Tristan CouvaresWhen Tristan (age 26), decided tobroadcast his entire life LIVE on ControlTV , he didn’t know that the hardestpart would be figuring out what to donext… Now Tristan has to prove that hehas what it takes to make it inHollywood: “I’m young and talented…but for the first time in my life I’m theunderdog.” Tristan more than makes upfor a lack of experience with hisinventiveness, energy and willingnessto put himself on the line “I’ll tryanything twice.” Tristan’s “work inprogress” appeal gives him a candidand incredibly watchable perspective ashe attempts to bring his viral celebrityto the next level on Production House.

We really magnify each other’spersonalities.”
