WIN! A SONIQ 40-Inch Full HD LED Smart TV

The good times keep rolling with Gizmodo’s giveaways. Up for grabs today: A 40-inch Android Smart TV from SONIQ, valued at $496. Here’s how to win…

This competition is now closed.

Who Won?

@Mawmon scooped this one up for his amazing TV show idea based on his own, eventful, life:

A black comedy comprising a mix of an outdoor/4wd how-to with a little IT crowd and a twist of Operation Repo plus some sort of redneck reality show for good measure.

Basically, I inspect powerline assets and vegetation clearances for a living which involves driving all over Queensland informing people that we need to remove trees and scrub from around and under powerlines in towns and on farms and I am also the resident IT guy.

Sometimes it’s the best job in the world, sometimes things get interesting…….

In the course of this job I have:
Been in a ute that was 30 metres from a lightning strike.
Had bricks thrown at my car.
Spent 1 1/2 days trapped on a tidal island
Been attacked by dogs
Been attacked by the owners of dogs.
Been bitten by Shetland pony.
Punched a Shetland pony.
Had guns pulled on me.
Knives pulled on me.
I was chased by a bull while I was on a quad bike.
I was attacked by an ancient and tiny lady with a shovel.
Suffered a serious back injury.

Add to the mix:
A dog with developmental issues.
A cat with abandonment issues.
Another cat that I have seen 3 times in the last year because she won’t come out from under the bed(we know she is fine because there is often purring coming from under the bed, it’s deeply creepy).
And last but by no means least, my partner who has a list of eccentricities too long to list.

Don’t lose heart if you missed out, we’ve got new comps every day!
