In case you haven’t heard, a new Taco Bell in Las Vegas has a WEDDING CHAPEL inside, and they’re running a contest where some couple will win a free dream wedding there. At Taco Bell. Who could POSSIBLY have that dream, right?
Um . . . this woman. A woman named Diane Nguyen wanted her entry in the contest to stand out, so she got a bunch of unused taco and burrito wrappers from a Taco Bell . . . and made herself a WEDDING DRESS out of them.
She says she wanted to get married at Taco Bell because, quote, “It has been there through the years, from the after school runs, to late meals after work or a night of partying.”
Every year there’s a “World’s Ugliest Dog” contest at the Sonoma-Marin Fair in Petaluma, California. Usually the winner is ugly, but also kinda adorable in a way.
Not this time. This dog is just straight up ugly.
The 28th annual World’s Ugliest Dog contest was Friday night, and the winner was a 17-year-old Chinese Crested Chihuahua named SweePee Rambo.
She’s a small black dog who’s BLIND . . . she needs to wear diapers because she’s incontinent . . . she has a blonde mohawk . . . and she has a sore on her leg that was oozing pus during the contest.
Her owner is a 44-year-old guy named Jason Wurtz from Encino, California. He and SweePee won $1,500 . . . and he says it’s going to go toward removing a tumor in her mouth. See, there’s someone out there for everyone.

If you could have free Starbucks for the rest of your life, how much money would you save? A LOT, right?
Well . . . Starbucks just announced a new contest yesterday where 14 people will win free coffee for LIFE. Ten of those 14 people will be in the U.S., three will be in Canada, and one will be in the U.K.
Except it’s not actually unlimited coffee to the day you die. Starbucks defines “life” as the next 30 years . . . and you get one free drink or food item a day. Lame. What . . . you expected a corporate contest without fine print?
Still . . . a free coffee a day through 2045 is pretty cool. The estimated value of the prize is $54,000, which comes out to right around $5 per day. You’ll also get a 10-karat gold Starbucks card with your name engraved on it, that’s supposedly worth $5,000.
You enter by buying something at Starbucks between now and January 5th. You’ll get a code on your receipt, which you enter at play.starbucks.com.
You’re allowed to enter two times a day . . . but that means you’ll have to buy two things at Starbucks every day for a full month.
One Direction is making the dreams of two lucky fans come true, after they won a contest for donating to U.K.-based cancer-fighting charity Trekstock. Two young ladies were chosen at random to be flown out for an VIP week in London, followed by a double date with Harry Styles and Liam Payne on their final night in town.
According to the “Daily Mail,” hundreds of One Direction fans were waiting outside a Soho hotel, where the boys took the contest winners for dinner on Tuesday night. Harry and Liam said in a joint statement that their evening out with the fans was “something [they’ve] never, ever done before.”
Why’d they do it? The singers are ambassadors for the Trekstock charity, which encourages young people to make healthy choices to prevent cancer.
A high school in Arizona didn’t win a contest for a free concert by Katy Perry, but they are still winners in Katy’s heart. A school in Colorado was announced the winner, but Katy Perry is giving a student from the Arizona high school a trip of a lifetime.
Katy Perry issued a challenge to students to make a video from her song “Roar” and the best one would get a free concert on campus. Students in Arizona entered the contest and gave it an inspirational twist.
One of the school’s video stars was Megan Squire, a school cheerleader who has overcome the challenges of Down syndrome.
When the winning school was announced, Katy Perry said she was inspired by Squire’s story and wanted to take Squire and her friends to an event this fall where Katy will be singing.
Katy said: “I have something very special for my friend, Megan, from Verrado High School. I want to bring Megan to a special event with me as my date, at an event I’m singing. I know which one it is. It’s going to be very exciting. We’re going to get dressed up. And I want to celebrate her and hear her roar in person. Megan, thank you so much. I love you. I love your spirit. You have really inspired me.”
