PINEVILLE -- J.R. Cook, a Wyoming County native and Tennessee attorney, placed second on “Opposite Worlds,” a reality competition television show on SyFy.
Cook and the other 13 contestants of "Opposite Worlds” were separated into two teams and lived in a house separated into two very different worlds, Past and Future, which was divided by a glass wall.
The primitive Past consisted of a cave-like atmosphere with limited food and dirty conditions. The luxurious Future consisted of extravagant meals and high-tech amenities.
"Opposite Worlds" allowed the audience to impact the show by tweeting and voting for their favorite and least favorite contestants. With lots of support from West Virginia and the rest of America, Cook remained a fan favorite throughout the duration of the show.
Additionally, each week players were selected to compete in an elimination challenge where at least one player was eliminated from the show. Cook won various challenges, formed alliances and battled his way to the show’s end, where he competed in the finale for the $100,000 grand prize.
Cook has arrived home and is adjusting back to life outside of the show. Show episodes can be found at syfy.com/oppositeworlds. And Cook also can be found on Twitter at @TheRealJRCook or on Facebook at www.facebook.com/jrcookofficialfanpage.
