It would have been nice to shake hands with Vin Diesel - too bad that it was US only contest.

It could be because you're in Singapore and the contest is for residents of the US.

Why is the contest open only to residents of the USA? That's kind of unfair if you ask me..

I kinda agree. But I also think this one might have reasoning behind it. One of the main prizes is a flight to New York only days after the winner is chosen and international is time consuming and pretty complicated to set up. 
flamenphoenix1915's avatar
Hmm... Ok, seems reasonable. Feel bad for those out of the country though. Well someday they will get lucky!

If you win is your flight to New York paid for?
