WYSP Listener Wins Very Very Very Used Car
July 2, 2009 at 5:07 PM (PT)
CBS RADIO Rock WYSP/PHILADELPHIA morning host DANNY BONADUCE awarded a listener a 2009 FORD MUSTANG for living in that same care for the past 11 days. JOHN DELVECHIO won the most votes over two other contestants -- all three of whom showed no signs of exiting the car. An Internet vote hosted at 94WYSP.com determined the winner.
On MONDAY, JUNE 22nd at 6:30a, four contestants entered the C&C Ford Mustang with the intent of living in it to win it. The contestants ate, drank and slept inside the vehicle and were permitted 15-minute bathroom breaks every three hours but no personal entertainment devices of any time (cell phone, iPOD, or even a book). In addition, everything that entered the car had to stay in the car including food, cups and cans and the ever growing garbage.
After six days, a 19-year-old contestant decided it was too much and called it quits. However, the eventual winner, along with a 21-year-old woman and a 55-year-old man were showing no signs of breaking down. Out of consideration for the contestants’ well being and in the interest of fairness, 94WYSP decided that the listening public should determine the winner.
Hundreds of thousands of listeners tracked the progress around the clock with updates on 94WYSP, a live webcam on 94WYSP.com and in person.
