I know that some of you still may not know who won American Idol, so I am not going to spoil your recap, live blog or McPheever Party reading, but we wanted to remind everybody that TVgasm is here to help you out with the aftermath. You probably feel like either celebrating the victory or forgetting the defeat, and one of best ways to do that is with unhealthy levels of alcohol consumption. What better way to facilitate that consumption than with a set of Melrose Place shot glasses? Last week, we mentioned that SOAPnet is having a Melrose Place viewer’s choice Marathon on Saturday, May 27th. While you can no longer vote for which episodes you would like to see, we still have plenty of shot glasses to give away. Simply e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and with the subject Melrose Place and a short description of your favorite Melrose Place episode or character. Five lucky winners will receive a Melrose Place gift pack with a tank top (men’s and women’s) and Melrose Place shot glasses (Michael-Hot Shot, Jake-Body Shot, Amanda-Big Shot, Kimberly-Shot to Hell) from our pals at SOAPnet. While the shot glasses might not make it in time to add to your McHangover, I am sure they will be perfect for that crazy Flag Day celebration you’ve been planning. It’s so easy to enter and don’t forget to check out SOAPnet this weekend to see which Melrose Place episodes were voted the best.
Also, I know I have been a little lax about updating people on contests, so I am listing the winners after the jump.First, if you have won, I have already contacted you. I didn’t mean to leave people hanging for so long, but you will have a chance to win for the next TVgasm contest. Also, if you haven’t received a prize, please let me know by sending me an e-mail (you can find it on the about page) and I’ll bust a kneecap or two.
Amazing Race 9
Per usual, we had a contest asking TVgasm readers to pick who they thought would win. Reader WS was the first to reply with BJ and Tyler, Eric and Jeremy, and Ray and Yolanda in the correct order. 15 people actually got this one right, but clearly didn’t visit TVgasm as often as WS, and so they were a little late.
WooHoo! I usually suck so bad at these contests I can't believe I won. How lame am I that I am so excited? I am so hooked on TVgasm it will probably be the reason I lose my job. You just keep getting better and better, keep it up!
We also had a contest picking the final three for the latest Survivor. The first person to get it correct was reader JC.
Wow! I feel so honored....and I had even forgotten about entering this!
I'll miss crazy Shane and his "Blackberry" and mama Cirie cracking up at the camera every 5 minutes, but looking forward to next season as always!
Keep up the good work. Y'all crack me up and certainly kill my productivity at work .
Monk Scavenger Hunt
We had a scavenger hunt sponsored by the television show Monk. People had so much fun, I think we may have to do another one sometime soon. First place went to reader SF of Phoenix, Arizona. SF didn’t have much to say other than madeyoulaugh is her favorite writer because she likes guys “with a sense of humor and a mean streak”. I guess I should try being funny one of these days! Enjoy your DVD box set of Monk Season 2, signed script and t-shirt SF.
Also winning t-shirts were readers MB, HL, JE and AS. AS wanted to make sure that everybody knew that she “completed the scavenger hunt while at work, and as a government employee, they should be pleased with how I am effectively utilizing their tax dollars!”. Hey, it’s not like any of us will be collecting social security anyway…
Lifetime premiered the reality series Cheerleader Nation this year and TVgasm had a contest. We asked you to name your favorite cheerleading moments in television or the movies. There were so many answers that I can’t mention to name them all, but the consensus was Kevin Spacey daydreaming about Mena Suvari from American Beauty. It’s tough to decide what my favorite moment was, but I would have to go with the first season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer when Buffy, Cordelia, and Amy all competing for that last place on the squad. Your winners were:
Reader ACJ (first place)
Favorite Moment: the early episode of Buffy where she goes out for cheerleading. Amanda Jones
Thanks, that's awesome! Especially since I would read TVGasm every day even if you *didn't* pay me. In fact, I would even say that a day without TVGasm is like a day without sunshine.
Reader CU (runner up)
Favorite Moment: Technically my favorite cheerleading moments came from my own four years on my high school squad, but the best cheerleading moment ever is Kevin Spacey fantasizing about Mena Souvari in American Beauty while she’s performing a halftime cheer.
I love it! As a former cheerleader I'd like all TVGasm readers to know that the activity itself is equal parts super cool and totally weird and cheesy, and the show worth watching. I am very excited, as TVGasm recaps are what get me to the office in the morning. Not on time, but I get there.
Reader ES (runner up)
Favorite Moment: In honor of my husband, who REALLY enjoys this particular scene, I’d like to enter the cheerleading scene from American Beauty. The one where everyone else fades away and all Kevin Spacey can see is his young crush seducing him…
I suppose this works out great! i sent in my favorite scene in honor of my husband...and he loves the prize i won! haha. Thanks again! I love tvgasm.com...this was wonderful news
EdHill has been doing a great job keeping people updated on the Sixth season of the Sopranos, and TVgasm celebrated by having a contest. I am not actually sure if anybody received these gifts, but I am checking on it. Let me know if I lost you in the mix.
Reader SH (first place)
Favorite Whacking: The first one would have to be Christopher & Paulie killing the Russian gangster. The death itself wasn’t that fascinating… but the dialogue beforehand left me in stitches. This was the episode where the cell phone broke up while Tony was explaining who the guy was. He said he was in the ministry of the interior, but Paulie thought he said he was an interior decorator.
The second is when Tony has to kill Tony B. As much as I loved his cellphone playing “We are the Champions” when it rang, I was sick of his crap.
Third place goes to Adrianna’s being shot by Sylvio. I was upset to see her go, but Christopher’s comment about the whole thing and his remark that “the bitch” couldn’t do a few years in prison for him, made me laugh.
And lastly… my favourite of the four… Paulie and Christopher bonding over killing the waiter in the parking lot. They’ve just had this huge dinner in Atlantic City and Christopher just barely pays for the meal. The waiter follows them outside to yell at them and Christopher hits him with a brick. The waiter starts to have a seizure and Paulie shoots him. It was surreal.
uhm, i'm sorry. here i was in my own little world, talking to myself, dreaming about candy bracelets.
thanks a bunch!

Favorite Whacking: My favorite whack in the sopranos has to be Ralphie also – that was a classic soprano moment – also good was the “whacking” of Big Pussy!!
Wow!! Thank you!! I never win anything – The poster will be great!
Reader GB (runner up)
Favorite Whacking: My favorite Sopranos whacking, was the decapitation of Ralphie, because it was basically what I wanted to do to Joe Pantoliano for being on “BUT CAN THEY SING?” Well, for that, and for also having the nickname “Joey Pants.
Dreams do come true! TVgasm has provided me with tens of hundreds of minutes of Internet enjoyment, and I am truly honored to enter into the pantheon of contest winners. Bye bye, bitches!
Reader MM (runner up)
Favorite Whacking: Adriana’s was my favorite whacking
That’s it for now, but check TVgasm for more great contests!
