Past tense. It was a show I liked, but i don't think it's current, anymore.
''Strip Search'' is a reality/talent search web show created by PennyArcade and Bionic Trousers Media (the same folks behind ''LoadingReadyRun''), set to find a new great webcomic creator. Twelve artists compete for the grand prize: $15,000, and a year integrated into the ''Penny Arcade'' machine. It was described by the creators in the first episode as being "for all intents and purposes, [[Series/AmericasNextTopModel America's Next Top Web Cartoonist]]". The show follows a fairly conventional reality show format, with contestants engaging in a group-based 'social' challenge for a prize, then an individual challenge that determines which contestants will have to face an elimination challenge. As a WebOriginal series instead of a LiveActionTV show, this unfolds in a stretch of three roughly 20-minute episodes per cycle, rather than in a single hour-long episode.

Moved to YMMV.
* PortmanteauCoupleName: Amy and Erika formed a particularly strong bond even by ''this'' house's standards. Result: [[http://24.media.tumblr.com/36ade85793ca6b53c44efffcdfbca034/tumblr_mld31dxZ8P1rcqyvgo1_500.png AmErika.]]

Role Association is no longer a trope. Feel free to readd under a better trope if such can be found.
* RoleAssociation: Erika was immediately recognized by a few of the other artists from her [[Webcomic/DarASuperGirlyTopSecretComicDiary previous work,]] not to mention by some viewers from her [[http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2010/04/02 guest comic]] from one of the few times Penny Arcade has ever needed to use them.

First out is the winner?
* WeHardlyKnewYe: Averted. It took until Episode 4 to get rid of anybody, and fans have made sure to try and keep tabs on the entire roster even after their elimination. Although the first knocked out, [[spoiler:Alex]], has been the subject- and perpetrator- of many a 'first player eliminated' joke.

The person with the second-most votes to win was the first one eliminated.

* GrassIsGreener: Part of the prize for the winner -- a year embedded in the Penny Arcade offices -- requires relocating to Seattle. Losing did not stop [[spoiler:Amy, Monica and Alex]] from moving to Seattle anyway before the season had even finished airing. And now, [[spoiler:Abby will be moving there after hitting the stretch goal for it on her Kickstarter for The Last Halloween.]]

** All in all, so far six losing contestants [[spoiler:(Monica, Lexxy, Abby, Maki, Amy and Tavis)]] have run Kickstarter or Indiegogo campaigns, and all six have succeeded. All but one of the "losers'" Kickstarters wound up raising more than the $15,000 that the winner received. The largest as of now is [[spoiler:Abby's]], having raised '''over $125,000'''. So many contestants cashed in so fast and in such large amounts that when the actual winner, [[spoiler:Katie]], was taking a little too long in relocating to Seattle, viewers began to worry that [[spoiler:''she'']] might be the one missing out.
