Calling All Fans … Jimmy Kimmel Announces His "Worst Contest Ever" For The 2014 Tostitos Fiesta Bowl

No Prize. No Rules. No Winner. Jimmy Kimmel Asks Fans to Send Him One Tostitos Tortilla Chip for His "Worst Contest Ever"

PLANO, Texas, Dec. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- As college football fans everywhere get ready for the 2014 Tostitos Fiesta Bowl, Jimmy Kimmel is literally putting all of his chips on the table with the "Worst Contest Ever."  Following Kimmel's announcement of the "contest" on Thursday's episode of "Jimmy Kimmel Live," the popular late-night television host is asking fans to purchase a bag of Tostitos tortilla chips and mail him a single chip in an envelope. Yes, just one chip. On Tostitos Fiesta Bowl game day, Kimmel will place all of the chips that he receives in his very own snack bowl, with the unlikely chance he'll eat one fan's chip. The prize? None. Rules? Nope. A winner? There isn't one, which is why this is Kimmel's "Worst Contest Ever."  

"I'm delighted to be spearheading 'The Worst Contest Ever.'  It's a terrible contest and I can't wait to find out who bothers to enter," said Kimmel. "The 2014 Tostitos Fiesta Bowl is coming soon, so send me your chip now or you'll miss out on nothing!"

A full-game integration with Kimmel will take place during the 2014 Tostitos Fiesta Bowl broadcast on New Year's Day.  As part of the partnership, Kimmel's distinct voice and humor will be present in several elements throughout the 2014 Tostitos Fiesta Bowl broadcast, including the entertainment content broadcast during halftime. To see how the "contest" plays out and the hilarity that ensues, fans can tune into the 2014 Tostitos Fiesta Bowl broadcast on Jan. 1, 2014 at 8:30 pm EST on ESPN.
