Grand Prize Winner for Scoobysworkshop Success Stories Contest

  • by

This years scoobysworkshop success stories contest was amazing. I want to say again, that each of these 39 people are winners in my book and I sincerely thank them for sharing their stories which will serve to inspire countless others – you are all heros and role models! So many fantastic transformations that literally, I could not decide who to award the grand prize to which is why I asked everyone for their help voting. Trouble is, after a month of voting, its STILL not clear and I dont know what to do. Its clear that both by percentages and number of votes, Kyle is the grand prize winner – congratulations Kyle!!!

The trouble is that Kris was only .1% behind Kyle:

… and although Lance and Alyssa didnt get as many votes as Kyle and Kris, they were neck in neck for first place in weight loss:
For these three, I just have to do something so I will offer a second prize – a personal training session with me and a short interview about their transformation to appear on my YouTube channel. Congratulations Kris, Alyssa and Lance! I will schedule these for this fall.

Submitted entries become the property of llc

Of the entries I had to reject, 95% of the time it was because of problems with the photos. The photos must:
  • Be of the same pose so people can gauge your progress
  • Both photos must clearly show your face, otherwise people might doubt if its the same person or not
  • Photos must be sharp, well lit and have a minimum resolution of 640×480 after they are cropped
  • One each photo, please make sure that each one is clearly labeled with a filename that tells me when it was taken and your bodyweight in the photo. For example “Jan_4_2011_125kg.jpg”.
