HOW TO ENTER: Online entry is the only method of entry for the Contest.
Entries received before and/or after the Contest Period will be void. All entries become the sole property of Sponsor and will not be acknowledged or returned.
Sponsor’s computer will serve as the official timepiece for the Contest.
If the Contestant meets the eligibility criteria set forth above, then the Contestant needs to do the following:
a. Starting Wednesday, November 9, 2016, and through and until Tuesday, November 22, 2016, watch first-run weekday episodes of TMZ Live (“the Show”) (Monday – Friday only, check your local listing for time of broadcast). During each episode of the Show a graphic will appear or the Show will otherwise direct viewers to pay attention to a particular Show story.
b. The next day between the hours of 7:00am-11:00am PST, Contestant may contact TMZ Live via Skype at Tmzlivethanksgiveaway. Provided that Contestant meets all eligibility requirements, Contestant will then be tested and judged on their knowledge of a specific topic determined by Sponsor.
c. Upon Contestant’s knowledge on the specific topic, Sponsor will then determine if Contestant becomes a finalist (“Finalist”). (See Selection process for Finalist).
d. The Finalist will be asked the “Final Question” which will be based on the prior Show day’s segment.
e. If the Finalist answers the question incorrectly, then Finalist will be disqualified from the Contest. Another Finalist will be selected after following the above steps and asked the same Final Question. This process will continue until the first Contestant gives the correct answer for that applicable Show question.
Starting on Thursday, November 10, 2016 and through the Contest Period, Contestant’s entry must be received by Sponsor between the hours of 7:00:00 a.m. PST and 11:00 a.m. PST on the same Show day.

b. A resident of one of the 50 United States (excluding Puerto Rico, United States territories, possessions, and protectorates, foreign based United States military installations and wherever restricted or prohibited by law or by this Contest) or the District of Columbia; and
2. The required personal information: Contestant’s first name, last name, e-mail address, and date of birth (“Personal Information”).
Submission of false or misleading Personal Information of a Contestant will be grounds for disqualification of entry. Entries generated by a script, macro or other automated means will be disqualified. Illegible, damaged, lost, late or incomplete entries, as determined by the Sponsor in its sole discretion, will be disqualified. Entries submitted by entrants who do not meet the eligibility requirements (including all requirements with respect to age and residence) are void. Those who do not follow all of the instructions, provide the required information in their entry form, or abide by these Official Rules or other instructions of Sponsor may be disqualified. Sponsor will not deem proof of submission of an entry as proof of receipt of an entry. It is the sole responsibility of the Contestant to notify Sponsor in writing of any changes to Personal Information, including email addresses, by mailing such notice to: Thanks-giveaway Contest, c/o EHM Productions Inc., 4712 Admiralty Way, Suite 700, Marina del Rey, CA 90292. All entries and related correspondence become property of Sponsor and will not be returned. Contestants are limited to one (1) entry per Contest Period. Additional entries, incomplete entries, and entries not received during the Contest Period will be disqualified.
During each day of the Contest Period, Sponsor, at its sole discretion, will select approximately three (3) Contestants per day who Skype in and meet the eligibility requirements for a final voting by the judging panel (“Semi-Finalist”). The Semi-Finalists’ knowledge on the specific topic will be voted on by a panel of judges selected by Sponsor in Sponsor’s sole discretion. The Finalist selected will be determined, at the sole discretion of the judging panel, based 33.3% on creativity, 33.3% on originality, and 33.3% on appropriateness to the theme of the Contest (i.e., tell us why you deserve to win the Prize).
The Semi-Finalist who receives the most votes by the judges will then receive a chance to win the Prize (as defined below, the “Prize”) provided that the Contestant answers the final question correctly. In the event of a tie, the potential winner will be the Semi-Finalist whose knowledge is considered more creative as determined by the judges.
The Winners of the Prize are collectively referenced hereinafter as the “Prizewinner” or “Prizewinners.”
If a potential Prizewinner is found ineligible or fails to comply with these Official Rules, such Contestant’s claim to the Prize is forfeited and an alternate qualifying and eligible Contestant may be contacted, at Sponsor’s sole discretion.
All Prizes legitimately claimed will be awarded.
· Ten (10) Prizewinners (i.e. one (1) Prizewinner per day) during the Contest Period will each receive one (1) gift card for $100.00 to Boston Market. In the event that there is no Boston Market location within fifty (50) miles from Prizewinner’s residence, Sponsor may (at Sponsor’s sole discretion) provide one (1) $100.00 Visa gift card.

The Sponsor may require a tentative Prizewinner to execute an Affidavit of Eligibility, Liability Release and Publicity Release (collectively, “Affidavit/Release”). The Affidavit/Release must be returned to the Sponsor within twenty-four (24) hours of Prizewinner’s receipt of the Affidavit/Release. A disqualification will result and an alternate entry will be selected if the Affidavit/Release is not returned to the Sponsor within the specified time.

If any potential Prizewinner is found to be ineligible, or if he or she has not complied with these Official Rules, or if the potential Prizewinner cannot attend or participate in any portion of the Prize, or declines a Prize for any reason prior to award, such potential Prizewinner may be disqualified and an alternate potential Prizewinner may be selected. The Contest Entities are not responsible for and shall not be liable for late, lost, damaged, intercepted, misdirected, or unsuccessful efforts to notify the potential Prizewinner.

CAUTION: ANY ATTEMPT TO DAMAGE ANY ONLINE OR CELLULAR SERVICE OR WEBSITE OR UNDERMINE THE LEGITIMATE OPERATION OF THE CONTEST VIOLATES CRIMINAL AND/OR CIVIL LAWS.

The parties agree that the Contest and these Official Rules will be governed, construed and interpreted under the laws of the State of California without giving effect to any choice of law or conflict of law rules (whether of the State of California or any other jurisdiction) which would cause the application of the laws of any jurisdiction other than the State of California.
The parties each agree to finally settle all disputes only through arbitration; provided, however, Sponsor shall be entitled to seek injunctive or equitable relief in the state and federal courts in Los Angeles County, California and any other court with jurisdiction over the parties. In arbitration, there is no judge or jury and review is limited. The arbitrator’s decision and award is final and binding, with limited exceptions, and judgment on the award may be entered in any court with jurisdiction. The parties agree that, except as set forth above, any claim, suit, action or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Contest shall be resolved solely by binding arbitration before a sole arbitrator under the streamlined Arbitration Rules Procedures of JAMS Inc. (“JAMS”) or any successor to JAMS. In the event JAMS is unwilling or unable to set a hearing date within fourteen (14) days of the filing of a “Demand for Arbitration”, then either party can elect to have the arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) or any other mutually agreeable arbitration administration service. If an in-person hearing is required, then it will take place in Los Angeles, California. The federal or state law that applies to these Official Rules will also apply during the arbitration. Disputes will be arbitrated only on an individual basis and will not be consolidated with any other proceedings that involve any claims or controversy of another party, including any class actions; provided, however, if for any reason any court or arbitrator holds that this restriction is unconscionable or unenforceable, then the agreement to arbitrate doesn’t apply and the dispute must be brought in a court of competent jurisdiction in Los Angeles County, California. Sponsor agrees to pay the administrative and arbitrator’s fees in order to conduct the arbitration (but specifically excluding any travel or other costs of entrant to attend the arbitration hearing). Either party may, notwithstanding this provision, bring qualifying claims in small claims court.
