Naked for PQ" Contest Winners!
risked arrest and public humiliation, and all for some swag.
Are these people nuts?! Judge for yourself!
know, you ask people to disrobe for a little ol' website and
before you know it, people are accusing you of trying to get
readers arrested. But while we frequently try to get readers
arrested here at PQ, we at least offer some pretty decent
incentive for it -- such as some swanky PlanetQuake jackets
and every Quake mission pack ever made! We gave readers one
week to bare it all and risk public humiliation to win fabulous
prizes. Only a few people dared to disrobe, and we have the
winners for you right here!
"Aurora" Beal (front) and Stephanie "Bobbi"
Bergman - third place winners
third prize was to be awarded to two winners, and oddly enough,
among the entries we got was one from two women in one picture.
Stephanie "Bobbi" Bergman and Vangie "Aurora"
Beal, hosts of the Lilith
& Eve show and members of the famous all-female Quake
clan PMS, got creative
with the Q3A tin boxes. They had this to say about our contest
and their entry:
both hope other girls got brave enough to enter, but let me
tell you, we had a BLAST (and yes we are 100% naked) having
the photos done. :)"
did they get third prize? From the scant few entries we received,
I thought that Vangie and Stephanie were famous enough in
the community to warrant a prize for baring it all on PlanetQuake.
But you'll see from our other entries that some people were
even more daring. Thanks, Stephanie and Vangie! You've
both won GameSpy gift packs, GameSpy registrations, and RadioSpy
second prize winner is Andrew, who sent in a picture of both
him and his wife. It was a tough choice deciding which one of
them would win. I went with Andrew because, of the two, his
wife was more attractive and therefore had less to lose. Now,
the picture might look like it was taken in Andrew's home, but
you'll notice if you dare to enlarge it that it's actually a
webcam shot. So technically no, it's not in a public place,
but it was potentially viewed by millions. Thanks, Andrew, for
risking angry emails from viewers who might accidentally have
stumbled onto your webcam page at just the wrong moment. You'll
be getting a PQ jacket, The Quake 2 bundle, Quake III Arena,
the GameSpy gift pack, and GameSpy3D and Radiospy registrations!
place winner Andrew. WARNING! Clicking on the picture
will show a lot more than you might want to see!
man really is in public! He's also really naked except
for the Q3A box!
Our first prize was practically a given -- Garin bared it
all in not one, but two public places! The picture
at left was taken in front of an Electronics Boutique store
and is worth the whole picture if you're daring enough to
click it. The first picture Garin included was of him in an
arcade, completely naked except for the Q3A tin box covering
the essential parts. At that moment, however, he said that
"they all ran like little cowards, so I was worried that
you would think I digitally cropped myself into the picture."
Just to insure that he would be properly considered for the
contest, Garin had this second picture taken at EB. My God...what
you people won't do for free stuff.
Next: our Grand Prize winner -- a thrilling tale set in
the Arctic tundra!
