Travel Company Offers Contest For Suborbital Flight With A
Is there a celebrity you'd like to see sent to space ... and
allowed to come back? The collective buying travel site
TripAlertz.com has picked a different kind of "A" list of
celebrities ... and is asking the public to select one to be sent
on a suborbital trip through a partnership with XCOR Aerospace.
Registered member of the site will also have an opportunity to win
a seat on a flight.
Voting is free on the TripAlertz
site, and those who cast their ballot will be automatically entered
to win an all-expense paid trip to Orlando, FL, including VIP
tickets to Kennedy Space Center, a three-night premium hotel stay,
meals and airfare. Those who vote in the next month will be entered
to win the same star treatment as the winning celebrity - an "out
of this world" trip through the ozone themselves.
The TripAlertz community will collaborate to choose the
celebrity worthy of the space odyssey. Voters can cast one ballot
per person for up to three of the nominees, and once a star
receives 50,000 votes, two champions will be announced: the winning
voter who'll be headed to Orlando, as well as the top-voted celeb
who's headed for the stars.
The member who wins their own free space trip will be drawn live
on broadband-streamed TV at the company's Summer Solstice Party on
June 21, 2011. Same as the winning celebrity, they'll receive a
five-night stay at the Sanctuary Camelback Mountain Resort &
Spa during training and preparation, medical evaluation and
screening, a cancellation insurance policy, and a ride aboard the
Lynx Suborbital reusable space plane.
The list of nominees includes Lance Armstrong, Joy Behar,
Stephen Colbert, Ellen DeGeneres, Jimmy Fallon, Lady Gaga, Kathie
Lee Gifford, Gayle King, Ashton Kutcher, Conan O'Brien, Charlie
Sheen, Jon Stewart, Justin Timberlake and Kanye West.
And remember, the celebrity selected will be allowed to return
to earth ....
