Remember back in January when I announced a Laguna Beach giveaway? No? Well, I did. I wanted readers to submit proof that they were the ultimate Laguna Beach fans, and in return, they’d win a free copy of Laguna Beach: Life Inside the Bubble from Simon & Schuster. Several months have passed without any news of a winner since then, and that’s pretty much my fault. I know — that’s like totally standard. I guess when you’re no longer paying attention to the daily struggles in The ‘Guna, life can seem empty and directionless. Simple things like contest results no longer have the same urgency. Well, fear not! At long last, I have finally buckled down and decided upon our winners. The wait is finally dunzo.
Winners after the jump…
The first winner is TVgasm reader Courtney, who devised a drinking game based on Laguna Beach. Granted, the rules tend to focus more on season one, but I’m sure she’d have no trouble adapting and updating the game for season two. The game could probably use a few J-Wahl and Jessica rules thrown in for good measure. And Casey too. And Alex M. And Roz. Okay, so there’s a lot of room for growth. But I liked the effort Courtney put into actually creating a game that we could all enjoy.
Courtney displays the rules…
1. Each player chooses a different character. When that character's name
is said, the player must drink.
2. Kristen and LC say they hate each other.
3. Kristen complains about something.
4. Stephen and Kristen argue.
5. LC makes "googly eyes" at Stephen.
6. Lo talks in a high-pitched voice.
7. Kristen says "Stee-phaaaan!"
8. Someone is shown surfing.
9. Someone is shown shopping.
10. A corny word or phrase is used: aka "dunzo", "stoked", etc.
Okay, this is some pretty impressive dedication. Ladies and gentlemen, meet Matt and his sidekick Gaby. I’m calling Gaby the sidekick because Matt was the one who actually submitted these photos. The truth is that these two clearly have a passion for both Laguna Beach AND TVgasm, as evidenced by their intense love of Roz (a.k.a. Alex H. for you newbies. I could explain the derivation of “Roz,” but it’s just too complicated. Check out the Laguna archives). Not only did these guys create a Roz collage, but they actually met the champion sidekick and took pictures with her. Plus, they also took some fun potshots at our favorite Mormon chipmunk, Morgan. How can we deny that? Well done, guys.
Matt, Roz, Gaby.

I would have pegged her for more the Grimace type…
The one and only Roz.

Thanks to all who participated. Hopefully there will be many more Laguna contests to come!
