Why aspire to be our county’s next top model or best dance crew when you can totally be a weatherman?

Funny or Die has teamed up with Survivor overlord Mark Burnett for a TBS reality competition series titled, yes, Funny or Die Presents America’s Next Weatherman, in which a dozen wanna-be meteorologists vie to win $100,000 and a shot at forecasting the weather on CNN’s New Day. (Apparently it’s going to take a lot more than just winning a reality show to make it all the way to The Weather Channel.)

Hosted by The Comedians‘ Matt Oberg, ​the eight-episode show will feature the judging talents of real-life mercury masters Johnny Mountain and Jillian Barberie as well as a flurry of absurd challenges like the “Snownado.” Put on a poncho and brave the elements in this video to get an exclusive first look at America’s Next Weatherman, which premieres Aug. 8 at 11 p.m.America’s Next Weatherman Trailer – watch more funny videos
