A once-in-a-lifetime six month holiday for two is up for grabs with a global itinerary featuring adventures in China, Egypt, India, Jordan, Kenya, South Africa, Morocco, Nepal, Russia and Turkey, plus a voyage on the Trans-Siberian Railway. The catch is you need to persuade your friends, family and the public that they should send you abroad for half a year. But lets be clear here. You’re not trying to get votes with benevolence and love, oh no. You’re trying to convince everyone to fling you away as far as possible, to get rid of you!
Get Rid Of Me is a unique competition. In order to have a good chance of winning, applicants must use all their powers to persuade the public that they really should be banished. They’ll have to be witty, have a lot of friends who want to see the back of them, and they’ll need a big slice of luck. Contestants can be from anywhere – this competition is open to the world.
The prize might make all that loathing voting worth it though. The most loathsome gets a complimentary trip across four continents, with travel, hotels and all reasonable expenses covered by On The Go Tours. With a decade of adventure tourism under their belts, On The Go Tours will provide local contacts and unique adventures on every stop of the tour. While in exile, the winner will be provided with a video camera and a personalised blog in order to document their experiences.
Ironically, the winner will also be given a spare ticket. Who could they possibly persuade to come away with them for six months of tiresome adventure? Not our problem 🙂
“We’re providing a serious public service here” claims On The Go boss Jay Lakshman “by sending this person away, we’ll spare their friends, family, neighbours and co-workers, and hopefully their experiences abroad will take the edge off their personality. It may seem perverse to reward the winner of an unpopularity contest with the holiday of a lifetime, but we like to think of it as a favour to the rest of us stuck back home.”
The competition is getting fiercer by the day. Contestants are claiming everything from finishing the office coffee to inventing the vuvuzela, so hurry up and tick someone off already!
