We’d like to thank everybody for participating in our giveaway for the Lifetime movie For One Night. I know I promised to have the winners announced by Monday, but I like to wait until I hear from the winners before I post the results. Yes, the winners have been notified, so if you haven’t heard from me, better luck next time. Overall, our readers appear to have had some prom experiences that were quite memorable. Perhaps not enjoyable, but still memorable, whether it was the reader who went to Catholic school and feared the a reprisal from one of the nuns for getting too close, or the reader who couldn’t find a date and went with a (third) cousin. That being said, to be fair, the winners were chosen at random, and not by how much their entry made me laugh or cry.
You can find out who won after the jump and we have more TVgasm giveaways lined up, so make sure to come back and enter.
UPDATE: Reader zevonia reminds me that I promised a prom tale of my own from my high school in sleepy upstate, NY. I’ve added my prom tale after the jump.
Grand Prize Winner
Reader KG wins the Canon Powershot A520 from Lifetime, saying: Oh my God!! I have never won anything in my life. You have seriously made my day! I guess begrudgingly going to the prom all those years ago did serve a purpose!
Reader BM wins his choice of items from the TVgasm store: I would also just like to say that I love your site. You all do great
Reader TS wins her choice of items from the TVgasm store: How cool! I didn’t think I’d even get the honor of third place! I’m glad my night of misery was good for something. Thanks for letting me participate, now I can wear a TVgasm shirt with pride.
Once again, thanks to everybody for playing.
OK, so for my prom tale. Actually, my prom tales are not that crazy. Junior prom I broke up with my girlfriend two weeks before it happened. Thankfully, she doesn’t read TVgasm, so I guess I get the final word on THAT. Anyway, since we had already planned the evening with all of our friends, we went together anyway. It was not awkward AT ALL. Senior prom was nothing, I had a great time, but I did ask the date of one my friends out a week later.
But enough about me, the really strange prom tale is actually from my cousin AS and her junior prom. They had it at a nearby hotel, and the same night there prom was in the ball room, a up and coming female rap artist was staying at the hotel that night. Unnamed female rap artist had performed at a local college, and was just coming to the hotel as the high schoolers were leaving. My cousin snapped a picture of the artist, which upset the artist, and so the artist’s body guard took my cousin’s camera. Hey, normally not a big deal, but when you have a prom full of memories recorded, it was quite upsetting. In the drama that ensued, the cops were called, but female rap artist’s bodyguard gave the camera back, and nothing was heard of it ever again, except when Kurt Loder mentioned it on MTV news. Far from being scarred by the experience, AS bought female rap artist’s album the next day.
