So recently, Oprah announced that she is holding a contest (in the form of a reality show, of course) that will give one lucky winner a show of his or her own. The show can be whatever the person (who will become the host) is passionate about.
One contestant by the name of Zach Anner has a great story and an ambitious goal: he is a wheelchair-bound guy with cerebral palsy who is looking to be the host of an adventurous, unusual travel show. He doesn’t want to plan “the perfect vacation,” or even anything close to it. He wants to have the strangest, most feared experiences while traveling. He gives the example of having your wallet, money, passport, whatever, all stolen. And also having to climb up a mountain or something.

Win A Trip to See Mario in Las Vegas!
One of our sister companies, SoLow, is having an amazing contest with a fantastic Grand Prize! You could have the chance to win a trip for two to Las Vegas, including roundtrip airfare, a 2-night stay at the Red Rock Hotel, VIP access to Mario’s Las Vegas performance, a night of bowling (plus an autographed pin) with Mario, AND $500 cash!
To participate in the contest, all you have to do is follow the same rules as every other SoLow game: you have to guess the lowest number that no one else has guessed. For example, you text in “3.” But, two other people also text in “3,” so it’s no longer the lowest unique number. You can text in your guess up to 20 times per day when you sign up for SoLow Elite!
Go to SoLow now to check out contest details! You have a week left before the contest is over, so get on it!

SendMe Mobile’s Awkward Ringtone Moment Video Contest WINNERS!
Since June 9, 2009, we have been collecting entries to our Awkward Ringtone Moment Video Contest. We received an overwhelming number of fabulous submissions which ultimately caused us to expand the number of finalists from 3 to 5! After we took the top 5 videos, based on view and comment number, we took the videos to a panel of SendMe Mobile judges who voted on their favorite video. After the tally, the results were nearly unanimous. We are very excited to announce our winners; we couldn’t be more pleased with how everything turned out! Enjoy the videos, and heartfelt congratulations to our winners and runners-up!!
Congratulations to YouTube user TrumpetDStudios! His video, “Send Me Mobile Commercial,” was chosen as the grand prize winner of our contest!! Our judges here at SendMe Mobile were unanimous in choosing TrumpetDStudios’s video as our favorite video. It is creative, well-shot, and an overall fan-favorite. Thanks for doing such a great job!

UPDATE:Awkward Ringtone Moment Video Contest Comes To An End
UPDATE: Hello Mobilers! Just wanted to let everyone know some good news! With your help, we have chosen the top finalists for the Awkward Ringtone Moment Video Contest. Since there were so many amazing video submissions, we’ve decided to expand the pool of finalists to the top five videos with the most views + the most comments. Since all the submissions were so great we thought, what they heck, let’s put the top five videos in the running for the Grand Prize. To spice things up a bit, we are alo going to expand the number of final prizes as well! In addition to rewarding the Grand Prize, 1st Runner Up, and 2nd Runner Up winners, we are going to be adding 3rd Runner Up and Honorable Mention prizes. But it gets even better because all of the finalists are still guaranteed to win at least $75 Cash and have their video featured right here on the SMM blog. That’s right, every finalist wins! Stay tuned as we will be announcing the final prize winners on Monday July 27th.
Since June 9, we have been collecting submissions from people all over the country who put their creative minds to work in order to come up with the most awkward ringtone situations possible. Who wants to be in the middle of a sexual harassment seminar only to have their “Smack That” ringtone go off? Well lucky for us, there have been a lot of hilarious videos to enjoy over the last few weeks.
The contest came to a close today at 6:00PM PST, so now it is time for us at SendMe Mobile to go through each of the entries carefully and thoughtfully so that we can pick the finalists. There are so many awesome entries that it is going to be a really tough decision over here! We will announce our findings next Monday, July 27, so keep your eyes open!
