Win $1,000 for binge-watching Betty White TV shows for her 100th birthday
Are you America's biggest Betty White fan? If so, now's your chance to prove it as everyone's favorite "Golden Girl" gets ready to celebrate her 100th birthday on Jan. 17.
To help celebrate the big day, Choice Mutual Insurance Agency is sponsoring a contest in which fans of the six-time Emmy winner can compete for a chance at earning $1,000 for watching 10 hours of White's TV work within a 24-hour period. The winner will also receive a DVD player and a curated selection of DVDs featuring White.
"We’re looking for someone who adores Betty White. This candidate is probably already planning to binge 10 hours of her classics, but now they get paid to do it!," the company posted on its website.
To enter, fill out an application on the Choice Mutual website by 8 p.m. Monday. To boost their chance of winning, applicants should send a link to a video explaining why they love White. Contestants will also need to document their experience on social media as they binge-watch TV episodes selected by Choice Mutual. The winner will then be notified by email within 14 days after the contest ends.
The soon-to-be centenarian is also being honored in several new books arriving this fall.
Ray Richmond's book "Betty White: 100 Remarkable Moments in an Extraordinary Life" (Becker & Mayer, $35), which comes out Dec. 7, features more than 100 photos of White covering her eight decades in show business and features a foreword by her "Mary Tyler Moore" co-star Gavin McLeod, who died earlier this year.
And Paula Bernstein's "How to Be Golden: Lessons We Can Learn From Betty White" (Running Press, $22), which came out in October, recounts White's life story while offering pearls of wisdom from the actress about love, acting, family, aging, sex and more.
