Guest post by Jackie Davis, assistant editor. Listen up! If you are a fan of Survivor, a fan of winning stuff, or a fan of competing against celebrities, we’ve got a contest that’s right up your alley: You could score a chance to vie against Survivor champion Boston Rob Mariano at The Great Outdoors & DIY Weekend, which runs Nov. 25-27 at the International Centre. (Cottage Life will of course be there, as part of the Fall Cottage Life Show.)

Though Boston Rob is probably best known for Survivor (he won Survivor: Redemption Island), I personally have watched him in The Amazing Race, Rob and Amber Get Married, and the Bigfoot episode of the show Sci Fi Investigates, which he co-hosted.

Wanna meet him? Here’s the lowdown: He’ll be doing an interactive Q&A presentation on Saturday, November 26 at 11:00 am. (My suggested question: Why doesn’t Bigfoot shave, put on some pants, and try to get a job like the rest of us?) Your ticket to the show gets you into this presentation—general admission seating. A highlight will be a Survivor-style contest where contestants can take on Rob in a head-to-head challenge.

Sharon Donaldson, Features & Promotions Manager for the show, explains, “The challenge will be a fun opportunity for fans to compete side-by-side with Boston Rob. If you can cast a fishing line, untie ropes, use a screwdriver, and toss balls at a target, then you are a great candidate for the contest.”

Well, I can’t do any of those things, so I’m out. But this might be your big chance! So what are you waiting for? Click here to enter the contest before November 15. Good luck!
