Rock 101 played Viva Las Vegas last Tuesday at 11:17am and Friday at 7:17am. I had predicted Tues 10-2 and Fri 6-10. Two correct days, one correct time. WOOT!
CFOX played Vegas Baby, Vegas on Monday at 4:22pm and Thursday at 8:08am. I had predicted Monday 6-10 and Thurs 2-6. Got the days right, just the wrong times.
The names called on Beat Your Bills last week are:
Amanda Diganosa, Marissa Dzidzik, Lisa Wiedman, Samantha Bozek, Michael Carnegie, Aubrey Kinoto, Harpinder Bal, Satnum Banghu, Jessica Blair, Cathy Norris, Kelsey Paigely, Ravina Randhawa, Tabatha Reis, Matteas Sagura, and Keith Yuen.
New This Week:
Peak has Jack White tickets all week. Listen for a Jack White song OR a White Stripes song and call in to win.
Jack has some things you can win but I just can’t be bothered to talk about them. Go check out their contest page HERE if you’re a Jack Pack Member. Otherwise don’t bother.
On Virgin, there’s a Kendrick Lamar fly-away to London, including flights and 4 nights hotel. The concert is on Feb 20th so make sure you can travel around that date before you qualify for the draw. Listen to Denai in the evenings to qualify (25th caller around 7pm) for the Feb 2nd draw as long as you or someone you live with hasn’t won anything from Bell Media in the last 30 days. This $3000 prize would be amazing, but just qualifying for it wins you Kendrick’s album, which in turn knocks you out of the running for another Bell Media contest for 30 days. Worth it? You decide.
Breakfast Television is sending someone to Disneyland – watch for the code word every morning and enter it online before midnight. You can enter once per day, per person, per email address. Basically, only enter once per day no matter how many email addresses you have! Otherwise they can disqualify you, and you don’t want that – this prize is worth over $8000 and is good from April to October! SWEET!!
And now, the most exciting thing I learned about this week: The Price Is Right is coming to Coquitlam in April!!! It’s the travelling version of the game, so Drew Carey won’t be there but they promise there will be a “celebrity host.” It doesn’t follow the exact format of the tv show, but some of the games and most certainly the excitement will match! Tickets are only $39 (buy them HERE) and there are 4 shows – Friday April 20th at 8pm, Saturday April 21st at 2pm and at 8pm, and Sunday April 22nd at 8pm. Children are allowed to attend but you must be 18 or older to register to play. My kids would LOVE to watch this game! I may have to break down and buy tickets for one of the shows.
For the complete rules, click HERE. Read them carefully – they are very detailed! The biggest take-away from the rules is that you do NOT have to purchase a ticket to play. I repeat, you do NOT have to purchase a ticket to play!!! Three hours before the show starts, they open registration for everybody – ticket holders and non-ticket holders. Those with a ticket can go into the theatre and watch the show. Those without tickets can sit in a waiting area and hope the producers come and get you because your name was drawn. You can show up at 5pm Friday night, fill out a registration form, then sit in the lobby and wait. They draw all the players’ names when the show starts, so you’ll know by 8:20pm if your name got picked. If your name didn’t get drawn, then you go home and come back at 11am Saturday morning and register for the 2pm show. If by 2:20 you haven’t been selected, go home and come back at 5pm to register for the 8pm show. When at 8:20 your name hasn’t been called, you return 5pm Sunday for one more kick at the can. If all goes well, you will get to play one of the games. And by “you” I mean “me” because I am going to be camping out at the Hard Rock and registering for EVERY game! I’ll have t-shirts made, temporary tattoos done, a packed lunch, my pyjamas, hell I’ll sleep in my car if I have to! I WANNA PLAY!!!
They call different people for each game play, so if you don’t bid correctly in the beginning, you go back to your seat with a consolation prize (a $10 gift card probably for the casino.) After the first game has been played, another 4 people are called up to bid on the next item to see who gets to go on stage. There are 5 bidding occasions, so 20 people will get to bid over the 90 minute show. Only 5 of them will get to go on stage and play a game. A different set of 3 people called from the audience will get to spin the Big Wheel, and another 2 random people will get to bid on the Showcases. If you’ve already been called and got to bid/play, you are not eligible to play in the Showcase. That’s called spreading the love…
These are from last week. Some end tonight, some are good for another week or two.

I had to use a more up-to-date computer to see the entry form. If you are having problems, borrow a computer!
