5. Winner Determination
Viewing Period Finalists
On or about one (1) business day following the conclusion of each Viewing Period, Administrator will select one (1) Entrant in a random drawing of all entries in the respective Viewing Period. The one (1) Entrant that has been randomly selected at the end of each Viewing Period will be a finalist (“Finalist”). Each Finalist will be announced on social media and on-air by Pop TV. An Entrant may only be a Viewing Period Finalist once. Since there are eight (8) Viewing Periods there will be eight (8) separate Finalists. Being a Finalist does not entitle you to a prize but rather the opportunity to be included in the Grand Prize Drawing.
Non-selected entries from one Viewing Period do not carry over into any subsequent Viewing Period.
Grand Prize Drawing
On or about September 1, 2017 Administrator will select one (1) Finalist for the grand prize described below in a random drawing of all Finalists. The potential winner will be contacted using the email address or phone number provided with the entry and may be awarded the prize subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with the terms of these Official Rules. The potential winner will be notified by email or phone on or about September 1, 2017. Failure by a potential winner to respond to the initial verification within twenty-four (24) hours of notification after three (3) attempts will result in disqualification and Administrator will select an alternate potential winner in the same manner. Odds of being in the drawing for the grand prize depend on your performance in a Viewing Period compared to other Entrants within that same Viewing Period. If you are a Finalist and in the drawing for the Grand Prize, your odds of being selected as the Grand Prize Winner is 1:8.
6. POTENTIAL WINNER IS SUBJECT TO VERIFICATION BY SPONSOR AND/OR ADMINISTRATOR. SPONSOR AND ADMINISTRATOR’S DECISIONS ARE FINAL AND BINDING IN ALL MATTERS RELATED TO THE ADMINISTRATION, OPERATION, SELECTION OF THE WINNER AND OTHER MATTERS RELATED TO THE CONTEST.
