Top 5 Craziest Sweepstakes Prizes

The world of sweepstakes prizes sometimes gets repetetive.  Another trip?  Another gift card?  A car or motorcycle?  The latest Apple products?  Join the group.

Here's to the brave and brazen who take a risk with their prizes and make things a bit more interesting.

5. Swarovski-Encrusted Gotchi Figure

I know very little about Swarovski crystal outside of I think it's expensive and used to "encrust" things to make them expensive.  I know less about Gotchi Figures.  But I guess put them together and there's someone who really wants one.

4. Nothing

This is a clever prize description to support Jones' "Zilch" soda, with the tag line "Win Absolutely Nothing".

The trick?  The prizes are actually having various bills paid for you for a month by Jones, so you pay "nothing".

3. Bacon

Ok, it's not actual bacon.  They advertise it as bacon, but the prize ends up being groceries (which you could buy bacon with).

But, the second prize is great.  A bacon-shaped USB drive containing Farmland® recipes.  (There's a picture on the site).

2.  Underpants

You don't actually win underpants, but you win a trip to run in the "BVD Underpants Run in Kona".  Who knew there was such a thing?

1.   A Corpse

Well, almost....

Just in time for halloween, Fear.Net is running their "Halloween Hung & Skinned" Sweepstakes.  The prize?

From the Creature Corps' Haunted Attraction Catalog comes "HUNG & SKINNED", a highly-detailed life-sized corpse, suspended from the very wooden rack on which he met his demise. On the rack you'll find implements of torture and pain, while a metal tub sits firmly at the bottom, waiting to collect the victim's bloody entrails as they drip from the lifeless body.

Hurry, this one ends on 10/22.
