CBS Top 40 KMXV (MIX 93.3)/KANSAS CITY is giving away a brand new MAZDA 5, and 5 contestants took the challenge to "SURVIVE IT TO DRIVE IT." They have to live in the car 24 hours a day ... with 5 minute breaks every 3 hours. They are being fed things like pizza with extra anchovies and red beans and rice. This morning they got hours of HANSON "MMMBop" played to them over and over. The last one in the car wins!
The contestants consist of a soldier just back from IRAQ, a lady whose fiance' is in IRAQ, a lady who said if she wins she is going to donate the car to charity, an ER nurse, and a guy nick named "MARKY MARK AND THE FUNK" ... he hasn't bathed in a week. Meet the contestants and see the live online fed at MIX93.com. As of today they have been in the car for 2 days, and the story was the lead item on local TV news programs.
