Win WrestleMania DVDs and other Tough Enough swag

Tough Enough, the rebooted competition series that airs Mondays at 8 on USA, has unexpectedly become one of my favorite shows, thanks to the insane eliminations and the physical, brutal competition. (There was also weird overlap with Survivor.) This is true despite the fact that I do not actually watch wrestling.

USA Network has offered three prize packs to reality blurred readers who are fans of wrestling or just want a bunch of swag. It’s a WrestleMania XXVII bag with the RAW: The Best of 2010 DVD and The True Story of WrestleMania DVD, plus a stainless steel WWE water bottle with John Cena on it. The retail value is $149.

You can enter once per day until May 12: Just leave a comment below about why you want to win, making sure that whatever service you use to sign in displays your real name and makes it possible to contact you. (If your comments aren’t being approved, check the quick and easy instructions here.) The fine print: No purchase is necessary. You have to be a U.S. or Canadian resident to enter, and I’ll randomly select the three winners at 11:59 p.m. ET on May 12, when the contest ends.

Surprisingly, man not eaten alive on Eaten Alive

Eaten Alive

Discovery Channel’s happy family holiday special Eaten Alive aired Sunday, rewarding viewers for their two full hours of viewing by ensuring that they spent quality time in the company of others instead of wasting that time doing something else that might not have been as satisfying, such as buying things that have labels which accurately reflect their contents.
