Additionally, Entrants will be invited to opt-in to receive promotional emails from the Sponsor, subject to Sponsor's Privacy Policy.

    All Submissions must be received by 11:59:59 pm PT on Wednesday, May 18, 2022. Limit one (1) Submission per person for the duration of the Contest. Submissions in excess of the limit may result in disqualification of the Entrant. Contest Entities will determine in their sole discretion which Submissions have satisfied the eligibility requirements. Participation in the Contest constitutes Entrant's understanding of, full and unconditional agreement to, and acceptance of these Official Rules. Sponsor reserves the right to disqualify any Entrant that Sponsor determines to be in violation of any term contained in these Official Rules. Sponsor's/Administrator’s decision not to enforce a specific provision of these Official Rules in a given instance does not constitute a waiver of that provision or of the Official Rules generally. ELIGIBLE ENTRANTS MUST SUBMIT THEIR ENTRY IN ACCORDANCE WITH THESE OFFICIAL RULES.

    IMPORTANT: Entrant’s Submission may appear on the Website or in the Sponsor’s social media stream. (But, such posting of Entrant’s Submission does NOT constitute any representation that the Submission is eligible or that it has been selected as the potential winner nor is it otherwise binding upon Contest Entities.) If Entrant does not want his or her Submission possibly to be made public, he or she should not enter the Contest. (For clarity, nothing herein in any way obligates Sponsor to make a given Entrant’s Submission public.) Any attempt by an Entrant to obtain more than the stated number of entries by using multiple/different identities, registrations, logins, and/or any other methods will void such Entrant's Submission and that Entrant may be disqualified from the Contest. Incomplete, unreadable, or unintelligible entries will be disqualified. All information provided by Entrants becomes the property of Sponsor. Sponsor has the right to change the Submission Period, and all other dates or deadlines in connection with the Contest, at any time and in its sole discretion, and will post corresponding updates on the Website.

  4. RANDOM SELECTION: On or about Thursday, May 19, 2022, up to fifty (50) Submissions will be selected at random to progress to Submission Review, Evaluation & Judging. The fifty (50) randomly drawn Entrants WILL NOT receive notice of their status. Sponsor reserves the right to proceed to Submission Review, Evaluation & Judging with fewer than fifty (50) Submission should there be fewer than fifty (50) eligible Submissions received. If applicable, odds of Submission being selected for Submission Review depend on the number of eligible Submissions received.
  5. SUBMISSION REVIEW, EVALUATION & JUDGING: Immediately following the Random Selection, selected Submissions will be reviewed and evaluated by representatives of Contest Entities and other parties (the “Judges”). Eligible Submissions will be judged in accordance with the following weighted criteria (“Judging Criteria”) to select one (1) winner based on the criteria and weighting below:
    • True "90's-ness" of the Response: 40%
      • True "90's-ness" of the Response: 40%
    • Originality of the Response: 30%
    • Entertainment Value of Response: 30%

    In the event of a tie, such tied Responses will be reevaluated in accordance with the criteria above and the Response with the higher/highest point score on “Originality of the Response” will be deemed the potential Winner. Sponsor reserves the right to extend the Submission Period and all other dates associated with the Contest in the event an insufficient number of eligible Submissions are received, as determined by the Contest Entities, in their sole discretion. If no eligible Submissions are received, the prize will not be awarded. All decisions of the Judges are final on all aspects of the Contest. Judging scores will not be revealed; and, by making a Submission, Entrant acknowledges that the judging scores are confidential information which is proprietary to Contest Entities, and he/she waives any right to review judging scores under any legal theory.

  6. WINNER NOTIFICATION: On or about Friday, May 20, 2022, one (1) potential Winner, as determined by the judging results, will be notified via the email provided in the Submission. Potential Winner will be required to respond as directed by the Administrator to the notification within twenty-four (24) hours (or a shorter time if required by exigencies) of first attempted notification. The failure to respond timely to the notification may result in forfeiture of potential Winner status and, in such case, Contest Entities may select an alternate Winner, based on the judging results, time permitting. The Released Parties shall have no liability for any notification that is lost, intercepted, or not received by a potential Winner for any reason. Potential Winner will be required to execute and return an affidavit of eligibility, a liability release, and, unless prohibited by law, a publicity release; confidentiality releases, on-camera releases and/or production releases; and any other documents as may be required by Contest Entities in their sole discretion (collectively, the "Prize Claim Documents") within twenty-four (24) hours (or a shorter time if required by exigencies, as determined by the Contest Entities in their sole discretion). Failure to respond to the notification or return the Prize Claim Documents within the specified time period may result in forfeiture of the Grand Prize and selection of an alternate potential Winner from the remaining eligible entries (based on the judging results), time permitting. The prize will not be awarded/fulfilled until all such properly executed documents are returned. If the potential Winner is found to be ineligible, or if they have not complied with these Official Rules or decline advancing as the Winner for any reason, potential Winner will be disqualified, and in such case, Contest Entities may select an alternate Winner, time permitting. Administrator, in its sole discretion, will attempt to contact up to three (3) potential winners of the Grand Prize in accordance with the above procedure, after which the Grand Prize may go unawarded if it remains unclaimed. Administrator reserves the right to disqualify anyone not fully complying with the Official Rules. Winner must provide the Administrator with a valid social security number for tax reporting purposes before the Grand Prize will be awarded. An IRS Form 1099 will be issued to the Winner for the actual value of the Prize received for the year in which the Prize was fulfilled. ALL FEDERAL, STATE AND LOCAL TAXES, AND ANY OTHER COSTS AND EXPENSES, ASSOCIATED WITH THE RECEIPT OR USE OF THE GRAND PRIZE (NOT SPECIFIED HEREIN) ARE THE SOLE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE WINNER. Sponsor reserves the right, in their sole discretion, to provide a projected tax gross-up allowance to help offset income tax liability; however, Sponsor is in no way obligated to provide such gross-up. Should Sponsor choose to do so, Sponsor makes no representation or warranty that the gross-up allowance will completely offset the winner’s income tax liability. If applicable, the projected tax gross-up allowance will be awarded via check in an amount determined by the Sponsor for the year in which the Prize is fulfilled. If income taxes exceed such amount, the additional income tax liability shall be the sole responsibility of the Winner, as applicable. Potential Winner is bound to confidentiality and is NOT permitted to publicly announce their status as the Winner (in any way, including social or traditional media). A Winner’s breach of such confidentiality will result in his/her forfeiture of Winner status, and, in such case, Contest Entities may select an alternate based on the aforementioned judging results, time permitting.
  7.

    **Winner and Guests are solely responsible for providing a list of any food allergies, dietary restrictions or special food needs. Commercially reasonable efforts will be made to accommodate such requests, but Winner and Guests understand that Contest Entities/Chef may not be able to do so.

If the Winner is unable or unwilling to accept the prize, or any portion thereof, as stated, the prize may be forfeited in its entirety at the sole discretion of Sponsor. The value of the prize represents the Sponsor’s good faith determination of the maximum retail value thereof. No refunds or credits for changes are allowed.
