The voting polls are open for each round for seven days. Tallied votes from each platform (Facebook & Twitter) will be combined to determin the winner. Our hosts will each cast their vote, each making up for 10% of the total vote count. For example if there were 100 votes total, each host’s vote would count for 10 votes. In the case of a tie, our studio hosts will go back and use their own original votes to break the tie.
Yes! All participation prizes and rules will be announced at the beginning of round 1 in each challenge. Prizes will include gift cards from each of the 8 contenders. You can only win if you vote and/or you participate in our social media challenges.
It depends on the category we choose for that season. For example season 1 (Regional Burger Chain Challenge) was chosen by our staff, but upcoming seasons will be determined by a combination of our audience and our staff through various polling.
We definately hope so! It will depend on the success of the first season. If our audience is activly participating and we are successfully shining light onto local businesses and their stories, then we’ll keep on keepin’ on!
