2009 is proving to be the year of slightly odd competitions! The Sun have invited you to become Wolverine whilst Kerrang wanted to bury you alive for the chance to win £1000. Not many of you fancied this competition but how about if the prize was £4000?
That’s the prize on offer for a competition to tie in with the release of new movie Drag Me To Hell. Lionsgate and Bauer are looking for 6 “lucky” people who will “be dragged to hell and face one of eight possible, terrifying challenges, voted for by the public”.
The challenges, which will take place in Birmingham on 26th May, are:
1. Eating a real (oven baked) tarantula.
2. Eating (cooked) maggots
3. Plucking eyes from a bucket with mouth and transporting them
4. Time test in a sealed box
5. Head in a box of bugs
6. Lamb brain burger (cooked)
7. Offal smoothie (cooked)
8. Bones out of bowl of maggots with teeth
Do any of them sound appealing? Do you think you could do any of them?
Three of the ten challenges will be selected and we guess those who survive win? If you are considering entering then make sure you do read the rules. Note that a contestant will be disqualified if they are sick during the challenge or if the adjudicator decides they are at risk of physical injury or excessive mental distress.
The overall winner will receive a prize of £4,000. Closing date for entries is midday on 18th May 2009!
We’ll be sticking to nice and simple prize draws!
