Steemit Survivor Contest UPDATE - 20 STEEM Grand Prize - IT'S ON!!!
A Quick Review
@suitcasemama and I are huge (and extremely nerdy) fans of an American reality show called Survivor. You know the one - contestants are marooned on a deserted tropical paradise, compete in silly challenges, and vote people off the island. I put out a post a few weeks ago to gauge interest in a Steemit Survivor Contest. The goal of the main contest? To pick who will ultimately win the upcoming season of Survivor. Since this will be fairly hard to do (one in twenty odds), I wanted to give a 20 Steem or SBD prize. I was also thinking about setting up weekly contests with smaller prizes where the object would be to pick who is voted out next.
Update - All Systems GO!
I'm VERY happy to announce I've received enough interest to go forward with the first-ever-in-the-history-of-Steemit (to my knowledge at least) Survivor Contest! Yay!
So far, the following Steemians have clearly expressed interest in participating:
That's seven, that's enough for me!
A few more folks were mentioned or commented, but I wasn't sure if they were just being supportive or wanted to compete. @fronttowardenemy, @gabrielatravels, @oclinton, and @celinavisaez, let me know if you would like to participate as well.
More good news: I've saved up almost 9 Steem so far, so I should have no problem raising a bit more and will be able to award 20 Steem for the main contest's grand prize at the end of the Survivor season. The prizes for the weekly contests will be awarded based on the Steem/SBD raised by those posts.
Still more good news, we have sponsors! I've received two very kind offers for support:
- @freedomshift has kindly offered to add some 1 SBI share for the weekly contests and at least 1 SBI share for the winner of the main contest, depending on number of participants. He does this all the time through his #ccc initiative, go check it out!
- @o07 has made a massive offer - if the contest is successful in attracting 20 participants we will award one lucky winner with one ounce of silver including shipping costs! Here's how it would work: if we reach 20 participants we would run a bonus game by randomly assigning each player a Survivor contestant. If your assigned contestant wins the Survivor season, @o07 will ship you an ounce of silver!
As you can see, more participants will unlock more prizes from these guys - so make sure to encourage any friends who may be interested to participate in the contest!
- CBS should officially reveal the names of the contestants soon. This usually happens in late August or early September.
- Once the contestants are announced, I'll post the final rules and prizes and invite players to choose who they think who will be the Sole Survivor.
- The main contest (choosing an overall winner) will be locked before the Survivor season premiere September 26th, then the weekly contests (choosing who will be voted off next) will start.
A couple more things
- This will be the American version of Survivor with the theme "David vs. Goliath" and set in Mamanuca Islands, Fiji.
- Special thanks to the @rentmoney, @costanza, @pifc/@thedarkhorse trifecta for their support through the Pay It Forward Contest. You brought a lot of attention to the contest, thank you!
