prizes-or-cash

Lace front, true believers!

RuPaul’s Drag Race returns tonight.

Technically, RuPaul’s Drag Race All-Stars, wherein 10 drag queens who missed out on being crowned America’s Next Drag Superstar over the show’s eight previous seasons return to compete for a cash prize of $100,000 and induction into RuPaul’s Drag Race Hall of Fame.

(This is the second All-Star season, and there were three seasons of the off-season offshoot RuPaul’s Drag U, in which RuPaul did not appear in drag and about which we do not speak.)

Across the country, legions of hardcore Drag Race devotees are already chilling the glasses and muddling the mint in preparation for tonight’s premiere. We know what to expect.

[ARTICLE] TWICE's Dahyun, ASTRO's Cha Eun Woo, and more to star in new Chuseok special show!

Chuseok is coming up, folks, and you know what that means, right? All kinds of special shows to celebrate one of Korea’s biggest holidays!

This Chuseok, MBC will be showing a new kind of variety called ‘Replies That Make Us Flutter’ - a show which completely relies on viewer comments, and creates dramatized stories from them. MBC will use votes to first determine which cast members will be paired up for different scenarios, with voting taking place from August 11-16. All you have to do is log into a Naver account to vote.

Once the cast members’ pairings have been chosen, the show will then reveal a basic theme, to which viewers can leave any and every kind of comment imaginable. Commenters whose comments become incorporated into the show’s mini drama, and become chosen as the most memorable scene, will be rewarded with a cash prize!

The cast members to take on this unique new Chuseok show include TWICE’s Dahyun, ASTRO’s Cha Eun Woo, model Joo Woo Jae, actress Moon Ji In, singer/actor Noh Min Woo, and comedian Heo Kyung Hwan. Viewers can even choose male-male couples and female-female couples!

Which couples do you want to see happen?

Staring: @pyrrha-is-not-innocent

Johns’ ship arrived at the docks early morning for the Vinyl Festival. His team was going to compete in the tournament for some extra cash prizes and try to find some nice pubs to get some drinks.
“Heh…been ages since I’ve set foot here…”, the tall pirate looked at the scenery as he sat at the front of the ship.

nom de scéne, nom de plume (Romance Novel AU) [1/?]

3 months of planning and I’m finally starting this monster of an au \o/ Super special thanks to my beta/personal Tikki @isadorator because this was a crack idea until she encouraged me to write it and helped with everything in general including the title!

[Ao3]   (Rating: M, see Ao3 for full tag list)

Summary: Marinette just needed money quick to replace her stolen laptop and sewing equipment during the first month of university. A writing competition with a cash prize was her lucky ticket into something much bigger. Months later, enter Lady Coccinelle, newly published author of the Miraculous romance novel series.

Adrien was trying to prove to his father he could earn and live on his own when he gets hurt in a bad accident and wrecks his moped. A chance meeting with a man who offers him a job where he could stay anonymous was the key to meeting the love of his life. Enter the nameless cover model for Chat Noir, one of the two protagonists in Lady Coccinelle’s current work.


Chapter 1 - Marinette: Wake Up

Marinette wasn’t really much of a morning person. Her best work was done when the sun wasn’t constantly changing the lighting of her workspace and when it wasn’t a problem to get too into things and miss class on accident.

 This morning, however, woke her up with a sluggish fog in her head and Alya’s gentle snoring from the bean bag next to her.

 Marinette rubbed her eyes and blinked furiously as she took in her apartment  living room around her. The blinds were left open last night and they let the bright light of a clear sky cast lines across the living room floor. Alya was somehow still fast asleep with one ray of light reflecting off her glasses on her face and onto the ceiling. A pillar of pink light ran in the middle of the table where the sun struck the half-filled wine bottle standing on it.

 She reached out to the table and picked up the books that were the cause of their late celebration.

 It was still a funny secret to her every time she read the rose-colored text at the bottom of the front cover - “Lady Coccinelle”. She laughed softly to herself as she tilted the cover to see it glitter in the light.

 A low groan came from next to her as Alya finally came to life again and turned away from the intruding sun. Marinette leaned over and shielded her with one of the books that her friend then snatched out of her hand to look at.

 Alya held it over her head, staring at the green cover as she blinked back into consciousness.

 “All this for a sewing machine.”

 “And my embroidery machine, my sewing kit, and my laptop, remember?” Marinette slumped forward onto the arm of her love seat before getting up to head to the kitchen.

 Alya opened the book, flipping through the pages slowly. “Remember you sold my love life to the world to replace them all?”

 “I think my hypothetical godchildren would love me for writing the romance of their parents.” She called back over the sound of frying eggs.

Look I got anxiety and anxiety linked depression, but if my therapist told me to not go into the BB house, I wouldn’t. My mental health is WAY more important that cash prize, sorry.

Introducing the Yahoo Cup

By Daniel Haight, Product Director Yahoo Sports Daily Fantasy

A little over a year ago we launched Yahoo Sports Daily Fantasy, and since then our game continues to grow and evolve to give users a fair and fun place to play. Today, we’re talking about fun!  I’m happy to announce the launch of the Yahoo Cup.  

The Yahoo Cup is a season-long fantasy football contest where players can compete for their shot at over $100,000 in total prizes. There will be cash prizes every week based on the highest weekly scores and a grand prize winner will be rewarded $50,000 based on cumulative points from Week 1 through Week 16. The best part? It’s completely free to enter. The second best part? Each contest is single-entry. Just like all of our contests, you don’t have to worry about  scripting or competing against a diversified portfolio of lineups.  We’re starting off in Week 1 with $10,000 in total prizes and will be adding weekly contests through Week 16 of the regular football season. For more info on the Yahoo Cup and to find out details about the rest of the Yahoo Cup weekly contests,  please make sure to visit here each week.  

But that’s not all. Our football lobby is officially open, along with our premier contest: NFL $500K Baller. In line with our Fair Play policy which we announced back in March, this football season you’ll find no contest has more than 10 entries per user, and the majority of our contests are single-entry. You’ll easily be able to see who the highly experienced players are, and scripting is strictly prohibited on our site. Just sports fans competing against other sports fans.  

Football season is only a few weeks from kickoff. Don’t forget to sign-up for both season-long and the new Yahoo Cup!  

imagine if the teams twist actually had some incentive like “whoever’s teammate wins big brother means all the other members will get a cash prize of 5g” it’d still be annoying but i feel like it would have had more of an impact on the game. also, a cash prize of 5g probably wouldn’t have COMPLETELY restructured the game into a four-way battle, but would have made more people second guess their nominations/votes.

At the big VGJunk site today: I wrote about Deal or No Deal for the Game Boy Advance. I think it came out relatively entertaining, but I can understand why you would have trouble believing that so here’s a tidbit about the game: it has a disclaimer at the start telling you that any money you win in the game isn’t real money and you can’t claim a cash prize from the developers. Amazing. Read all about it here!

Goddamit, picture this in yoru brain (I had to, now your turn). The high school AU Young Freshman Duane hopes to be a composer someday, but it seems like he's gotten the attention of some of those Big Crescan Seniors from the exchange program and oh boy, he hopes there isn't any trouble! (Spoiler: There's a lot of trouble.) Of course, that's just volume 1.

I don’t know if you’ve been reading long enough to remember, but I used to hold fanfic contests in-between chapters, with cash prizes and everything. I would have rigged this story to win first place ;)

Srsly though, do you (everyone here on tumblr reading this) want another fanfiction contest? We’re nearing the end of the chapter. Would anyone be interested in entering? In reading entries?

I could do fanart instead but I really enjoy fanfiction so much. You guys were always so creative!

Tell me!
