Day 8 of the Daily Steemit Selfie Challenge begins now, with the added quick draw bonus point!

Our registered players are competing against each other in an elimination endurance contest where their selfies must be posted on a daily basis and must meet the theme qualifications. Not only must they post their qualifying selfies prior to the deadline to avoid elimination, they are also competing against one another for bonus points. In each round, I will reward at least two selfies with bonus points.


Each day, I will be rewarding one player each day with a "quick draw" bonus point for being the first to reply with a qualifying selfie. In our last round, our QUICK DRAW WINNER was:




This was the most enjoyable round for me so far. I try to pick at least 2 selfies for bonus points each day, but you guys got me picking a lot more. If yours was not chosen, don't be disappointed. You had a lot of great competition. Also, I will make a post soon about the bonus points, so the grand secret can be revealed! For now, you'll just have to trust me that you want them!

Today I handed out more Bonus Points than ever, as you guys are seriously getting creative!









I have a secret later running in the contest this time too, for bonus bonus points. I determined ahead of time that anyone who included a pepper in this photo for day 7 would get a bonus point. Guess what? Someone did! Kind of makes me wonder what the special secret will be this round!



It looks like this is becoming an endurance race, but we are still reducing the competition. Five more players have now been eliminated.

6 @flemingfarm
6 @xtdnrymompreneur
6 @jodiegolier
6 @buckydurddle
6 @avatarawakening


For Round 8, you just have to have a hand in the selfie with you. As long as it is a real, live, human hand, it qualifies! You could even use your own!

Please remember as well, that the goal is to have all players take a new, qualifying selfie each day to enter into this contest. I hope that you all do well this round, as soon I will reveal more about the Bonus Points!

Reply to this post with your qualifying selfie by 9:00 pm (CST) tomorrow to avoid elimination. As always, no entry post is required, but you are free to make a post featuring your entry if you want to. By entering this contest you are giving me full permission to use your entries in future contest posts. Thanks and have fun!


The current prize pool is 160 SBD, not including Bonus Points. It will continue to grow on a daily basis! That means that the longer you hang in there, the larger it gets!

Until next time…

Thanks dear

Man! 29 seconds too slow! Great effort though! Gotta try to get them points!

I saw it @papa-pepper right after I posted. Arrrggghhhhhh

@dearjoyce is faaaasssttttt....I think it was the power of her ring. Well done ma'am.

I think its the power of wanting to sleep but i want to take this selfie first lol! Thanks dear. Say hi to that wee hand over there!

You were sooooo close!

It happens.....need to find a quicker way to post pics in comments.

There's always next time. :-)

Yeah. Because I use my phone, then wait for the image to upload to Google Photos on the computer, then I adjust the size, THEN I can finally post... I'm pretty sure I'll never win the quick draw! LOL!

the dog also want to feature

He keeps trying to get into the contest. LOL

thats cool

I told her: I have to do this selfie like that, because I am French.
She replied: how often are you doing it? This is the first time in 10 years!


Well played sir.

nice concept

Aha! You took @papa-pepper at his word: "I GOTTA HAND IT TO YOU", so she handed it to you. What an elegant way to take a selfie!

Now THAT is commitment!!! Gotta be worth a bonus point brutha.

wow. a lot of creativity

Smile got to get those bonus points

is that a pepper on the back of your head? how did you do that?

Yes, I'm curious, too!

Yes , my hairdresser was kind enough to scalp me one :-)

Wow, that some serious dedication. you do deserve some points , if i were @papapepper, you would definitely be getting some bonus

We'll hold " @papa-pepper" ransom for.....1 MIIIILLLLLON DOLLARS, muahahahaha.

Throw me a frickin bone here.

A silver kookaburra (Australian kingfisher) [] has a nice, hefty feel in my hand, but I wish it was one of our recently-minted Steemit coins instead []

Spangled Kookaburra CC-- BY- SA Doug Janson (What a lovely bird!)

But we all know the saying “A bird in hand is worth two in the (goji berry) bush. Goji berries are a kind of fruit that grows in northern and southern China, so I prefer to call them by their Chinese name, gǒuqǐ / goouchii 枸杞, rather than the Japanese pronunciation of their name, which is goji I am going to enjoy a handful in my veggie soup tonight, so I thought it would be appropriate to use them in a selfie.

More information about goouchii (also called wolfberries):

@wentong-syhhae right on with the Kookaburra. I have a modified one that I think you will like... check me later... got no goji though!

you decided to be educative with your post. thats cool. keep it up

In its earliest days, the internet was characterized by a spirit of discovery, freedom and generosity (I've been online since 1989, starting with JANET in the UK).

Whenever I post on Steemit, I often think about how this spirit can be made a permanent part of our new platform. I do my best to use the talents that God gave me to encourage, educate and help other Steemians.

thats good of yhu

Fresh Goji Berries on the bush!

Oh yeah, and one of these things too... many fun ideas come to mind on this one. Wish I could do them all.

So true. Lots of fun!


Ohh i love this one!!!!



I opened Steemit with your post being ONE minute old and you the only comment.

Alas, mere seconds later ... well, if it were really a quick draw, I'd have been dead! 😲

So, now I take my time. Plus, I like to shrink the pic (for the blockchain😉 ).

I was attempting to blow a kiss...but it kinda just looks weird.😏

I agree with @papa-pepper . first thing I thought.

It looks like you are blowing a kiss.

Excellent. I thought my hand was too low.

Hubs says it looks like I'm blowing some evil dust on you.

Gotcha! Sweeeet!

Here i come @papa-pepper


"Hand's On"😂IMG_20171018_103048.jpg

nice one @bien. thw face i make when i am thinking of doing something or not

Thanks @ewouso. Ohw..hehehe..happy to hear that..i was with my boss car when i read today selfie is about hands..there is only one thing on my mind..and here it is.. 😁😁

hahahahah. good

thanks bro!

I gotta hand it to Papa-pepper,

Swaggy (PAPA-PEPPER) Pepper 🤘🤘🤘:


For reference :


is that chocolate or henna?

Probably henna: I don't think Indian people would waste food like that.

Funny, my boyfriend is Indian.

Spatula, hammer, sunglasses... check, check, check. We got this one!

I have to HAND it to my wife (@lturner) for coming up with this idea. @ironshield

This is adorable!

one in a million picture. i love this

Awww.. so sweeeeet!!!!

Great idea and congratulations

congratulations, so nice!! :))

hope that I will be pregnant soon too :)

Whose tiny hands are these? 🤔

Thanks papa-pepper!

This morning my wife told me that the spatula and hammer were a long shot for the secret bonus :( so I decided to emulate @wentong-syhhae and post some silver bullion. I'm holding a 1991 Kookaburra where I have added the Steemit logo (with paper and glue) as an improvement to the queens profile and at the same time created the first poor man's Steemit bullion! We can't all be like @papa-pepper but we can sure try! Also around my neck are junk holed coins; a 1964 Kennedy half dollar and a 1922 Peace dollar. Going with my poor man's Steem chain look trying to reach up to the papa's level. Thank you guys!




It said a human hand in the selfie so here's my selfie with my son's hand and me with a lion back in the cage. Took son to the zoo today :)

To be on the safe side, here's another one

Great entry,I haven’t been to a zoo in years must do that

Lucky son. You probably live near the zoo, so he can go more often (I remember your hippo picture).

Entry #2 @papa-pepper featuring your famous selfie smile, a pair of papa-pepper shades, a red jalapeño from our garden, and a flaming hand. Note, my shirt has a hand on it as well.

Is that real? The fire?

Proof I really lit my hand on fire.

It took 5 tries before I got the lighting right where you could see the flame and my face.

We know where her hands were a minute after you made her do this pic. ;-)

Yup! Folding up laundry.....that's what you meant right? Keeping it G rated.

I was thinking more around your neck, and after that laundry crack.....


LOL! Great effort, but you had 2 in front of you!

Love this !

Thanks. You can kinda see my wife's bling in the pic. Her ring has like 68 diamonds on. None quite as big as yours I don't think but she makes up for it in quantity.😉

you are so funny

your wife be like let me play with daddy a bit

Actually she was like "I can't be in the selfie with you, I don't have a head covering on."

hahahaha. then she should get one. hahahh

There was no time. I was going for the quick draw bonus. I had literally been refreshing papa-peppers page 4-5 times a minute since 8:06pm CST trying to be the first to post. I was not successful this round.

i do that too but i always sleep off

Struggling to choose between two options so sharing both

This first one is probably my favorite of the two Bahbahra brought I couple of friends to have hands in the shot, but I did notice it was specified it has to be a real live human hand so there is mine giving a thumbs up in this shot behind Bahbahra and friends


Sharing this second one since i walked up to Times Square to get a shot with Madame Tussaud’s big hand in the background, but again with my hand in shot

You like that teddy

Am I the only person that thinks this is cool and dope?






Cutting it close! @papa-pepper

"Eating a Berry"

"St. Louis Cardinals Foam Finger"

Hear no evil, see no evil. speak no evil, just take selfie...
@longsilver was perhaps a little too happy to help with this... lol

thinking on how to win the quick draw bouns point with a 0.5mbps internet plan

brother think well

wow so beautiful, can i be your muse?

A bit awkward trying to get my hand in the correct angle but this will have to do!

It doesn't show a photo for me....

hahahaha looks like a baby pepper

maybe it’s posting slow?

I can certainly see it now! Thanks.

just wake up lift self-handed ,,,
hahaha fun ,,

Yes I am betting that the bonus bonus is for Niel Diamond lyrics.
