Day 9 of the Daily Steemit Selfie Challenge begins now!

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:




You guys are too much fun, and these are hard to choose. People are even cutting their hair to look like a pepper! Here is what I came up with!










The secret Bonus Bonus Point thing for the last round was a live animal. Any selfie with a live animal in it gets a bonus bonus point! I wonder what I'll be looking for this time!






It looks like this is becoming an endurance race, but we are still reducing the competition. Five more players have now been eliminated. I was sorry to see you go. Bonus points will be paid out shortly to you.

@photolander2 BONUS POINT
@ellicia - 2 BONUS POINT


For Round 9, you just have to have a knife in the selfie with you.

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!


I will be offline on Friday night and during the day on Saturday. Therefore I will shortened the response time for Thursday's post. You have roughly 24 hours to reply to this post (Day 9), but the post tomorrow (Day 10) will have a shorter response time. I just wanted to warn you ahead of time, especially if you normally wait until the last minute.


The current prize pool is 175 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…

Don’t waste your time online, invest it with

Got me this time by seconds lol

Dude! What kind of phone do u have? How fast is your internet? How do you post so fast?

Just a waterlogged Galaxy S7 lol. My internet is rather fast but most of the time steemit gives me problems when I try to post stuff here lately. As a matter of fact, when I was uploading the pic, it got stuck for a few seconds and I was getting mad at it lol. Just like right now. This makes twice that I've typed this reply! Now I can go sleep finally. Good luck, bro!

Nice work mate @bluelightbandit, I think it will be totally impossible for me to win this quick draw, as I need to take a pic from my phone. Then email it from phone to pc (as I can't post pics directly from my phone) which can take minutes hours even then post it here, which normally only takes the 3rd or 4th time, oh and then there's the waking up at 3am thing, LOL, nice one brother, you are quick to the draw, I'd like to see you with a 6 shooter. Cheer$:)

I feel ya pain man, I have to do the email thing to and it is a pain in the arse. I do have high speed internet that helps but the steemit fairy likes to mess with me every now and then. Keep trying man, you'll probably catch a break sooner or later and catch one of the quicker guys sleeping. Good luck to ya!

No brother I have resigned myself to the fact I can't win the quick draw, all I will have to do is up my game and become more original and creative in the selfies for those bonus points :) Cheer$:)

I don't think it was a sleep deprivation study. I believe you are a cyborg!

I believe you're right!

You are like lightning! Congrats!

Wow! 40 seconds too slow tonight!

That was my husbands fault he was fumbling around with the pocket knife lol

That was close... but you were third. Also, please be careful... you look sort of not careful in that photo!

She looks possessed! No offence, snowpea, please no offence.

Good, I was going for that look!! I mean it's a selfie with a knife for crying out loud I had to! 😂

Well you nailed it, girl! Lol

Thanks, I think...;)

Oh snap, and I thought I got the bonus point! I'm being careful, just held up a knife and snapped a selfie. 🙂 (And then put it down oh so delicately.) 😉

Wow this is scary and very creepily cool too :D

Yeah, I think I got that "Don't mess with crazy" look going for me. XD


Sharp side out... sharp side out. @ironshield

Going for the pirate look, huh?

Surcouf l'insaisissable!


Can a sword be counted, or is that too big?

I'd do both, just in case. 😎

I decided not to limit myself to one....or two....or even six....

That would not be too big, good question.

My competition or not, upvoting this ir REQUIRED. VERY creative brother.

Very creative. What's that in the background? @ironshield

This is taken in my kitchen.

wow, this is a good one. LOL

This is so innovative!!!

I smell a bonus point
U guys are awesome

HAha i love this one, funny

I thought this was a pretty creative idea but I never imagined it would be so well received! Thanks for all of the great comments!

Now that's pretty awesome! :)

mirror + knife. Clever!

LOL. That facial hair reminds me of "Duckie" from Black Uhuru.

Far left above.

Far right in that one.

LOL, never heard of them but i do see how that could happen. u were my inspiration papa-pepper

You did well, maybe bonus point well!

i would be so happy to earn some bonus points, i have not earned any yet.

People say the same thing about my hair. I just tell them to take lots of vitamins right before bed and see what happens the next day..Lol

Bonus point!!!

Thanks @ewuoso for that.

Aww happy birthday to her :)

Tomato Killer!!😱😱


Some rough pics here, what nighmares are made of, all @papa-pepper needs to do is mention knives and the real psycho in everyone comes out.. hehehee. Hilarious.. Cheer$:)

Effort is the best to take a good shoot..

My phone slap 2 times before i took a good shoot.. :) but finally i made it..cheers..

Excellent.... knives... 😎

This first one is pretty scary...

And another, just for good measure.

Are those throwing knives?


I cannot trust Bahbahra to one of my sharp knives at the moment 7C54B816-A268-410D-A510-42C8BB1F54AE.jpeg

Being somewhat patriotic I lined it up so the NZ flag is in the background

Hehe! I'd better get busy! Been too preoccupied with other stuff today!

Yes don’t let time pass you by and miss the dead line

I just posted. Been spending time with my kitty all day today. We had to say good-bye. Not been a good day. :-(

So sorry, I know hard that is we went through that last year, I know words dont help but your in my thoughts at this sad time

Thanks! That's 2 kitties in four months we have had to say good-bye to. We have no pets now, except that my son and his 2 cats are living with us just now. It was good to have a kitty greet us at the door when we came home from such a sad occasion.

Ohh no thats so sad, I know even today almost a year later I still feel I see her out tof the corner of my eye,

I know that feeling, oh so well!

aw this is so cute. Is that a mouse? it is in it to win it. i love seeing it in all your pictures

It’s a little sheep fridge magnet
I don’t like doing selfies so focusing on her instead of me

I didn't get the quick draw award, so I'll just have to go for the Darwin Award!

I was wondering why the toaster was out of place this morning... 😂

Side note: this Bitmoji is a little scary...

Ha! Yeah you should definitely get a bonus point for electrocuting yourself. 😂

I did want to mention a couple of my knives specifically, as I think here are a few people in here that might be interested.

The two in this pic have history with me and before. The one on the right is an Iraqi AK47 bayonet that I brought home from Gulf War 1 in 1991.

The knife with the knuckles is probably the most collectible knife I own.
It's an ORIGINAL WW I Trench Knife.

2017-10-19 11.24.07.jpg

It was made by the L,F, & C company in 1918 and will be 100 years old next year. I had coveted this knife for many years and was finally able to find one at a show about 25 years ago. Had it ever since.

2017-10-19 11.23.02.jpg

Wow! Now that’s a cool knife!

Wanted a trench knife since 1980 when I saw Lee Marvin carrying one on the war movie "The Big Red One"

Finally found one.

Wow! To the highest level!!!!

This is as sharp as they let me have in here.

I actually cut a golf ball in half with one of those once!

Ah. Then maybe I can get out! HaHaHaHa!

Got home in time to showcase my colorful array of knives!


Steemit froze when I went to post this. Still missed QD by a minute.

What a tomato haul, that's excellent!!! At first, I thought you were at a farmer's market in that photo. @ironshield

Get those tomatoes!!!! :)

I think I got something on my nose

God. call the cops

My entry :

Where there is a knife, there is blood :


P.S. its ketchup, but i personally loved my idea 😂😂

another bonus point. if u dont win a bonus point then ill give u 1sbd

hehe that is so generous of you :) @ewuoso , lets see what happens in next post :)

yeah lets wait

Sherlock Holmes meets Nostrodamus..




Bonus point!

1 Shun knife. I'll divide up the STEEM @ironshield

Pocket knife from @mericanhomestead and STEEM Silver Round from @phelimint and company! @ironshield

It's going to be very sad if you cut that shiny silver round with my favorite fearsome knife...I bet it won't do either one of them any good! :0

Cutting it close with a Chinese kitchen knife:

This is my husband's knife, he does not know I take it ;p


These are all the knives I could hold without getting injured, which almost happened. Not sure why I was drawn to have peanut butter and apples this round! @papa-pepper🔪🍏🔪 Steak, butter, and plastic knives, along with a pocket knife





Papa-pepper keeps us going. We love you.

if you dont get a bonus point, i will give you 2 steem

Lol... God saved you.

I'm late posting because today has been a very traumatic day for me, and I feel like my heart has been cut with a knife. For the second time in just a few months we had to have a beloved kitty put to sleep. I spent most of the day petting him and we just returned from the vet's about half an hour ago. :-(

I'm very sorry to hear about your kitty! @dmcamera

Featuring the amazing impractical steemit throwing star! IMG_5321.JPG

This is a tough one. I many choices, how am I supposed to pick just one?

I guess I just won't pick one !

I even threw in a couple of Tomahawks for good measure.

2017-10-19 11.20.35.jpg

What the heck? Hope those stay up there and don't fall down. Haha, this was interesting.

Out ninjaed by my ninja... "shtickkk"

Wow! So many great and creative entries this time! I thought I'd have a little fun with forced perspective, nothing too fancy :)

Thanks papa-pepper!


Not very creative but I’m in a bit of a rush!

I look so bad in this one but so what lol

lol. hehehe. Don't worry I did not really cut that pepper because I know you love pepper. 😍😍😍😘😘😇😇😇


This is not an easy task :)
