It's the Woot Ultimate Challenge! Recap

by Amy Nance

Welp, it's been one whole week since the end of the Ultimate Challenge shenanigans. Hopefully by now, all of the "winners" are enjoying the no doubt disappointing contents of their well-deserved BOCs.

As we have said previously, the only regret we have about the ordeal is that we didn't have more BOCs with which to reward your valiant efforts. But what we can do is revisit the splendor that was Ultimate Challenge by highlighting our favorite runners-up from each day. We hope you enjoy them as much as we did.

Day 1: Wine Bottle Ring Toss

This video came to us from grovekat. Everything about this video was perfect except for timing. The sweatbands. The sign. The cat. We especially loved the exasperated "ZERO" at the end. Plus, lady gets mad props for doing this at 2 a.m.


Day 2: Fling-a-Monkey

The soundtrack, The supers. The endless stream of customized Woot monkeys. This video from spilzer was, dare we say, the perfect Ultimate Challenge video. Minus the whole too-slow thing, of course.


Day 3: Squirt Gun Marksmanship

Maybe it's unfair to give one Wooter two shout outs, but this video also from spilzer might be one of the craftiest workarounds we've ever seen. No squirt gun + wee cows = Ultimate Challenge excellence.


Day 4: Speed Tent

Having to pass on this guy's video might just be the one that hurt the most. Not only did he get snubbed because his video didn't upload fast enough, but he broke his kid's tent in the process. We know it's not much consolation, but we salute you anyhow, orabbit.


Day 5: Corn Dog Trials

This wasn't the only monkey video from barkwoot, but it was our favorite. Mostly because we didn't have to watch one of you eating anything in it. XOXO


Before we leave you, we do feel it necessary to give an extra special shout out to Moueska, who submitted a video every single day without fail, and finally snagged a BOC on Friday. You da bomb, gurrl.
