The chances of winning are determined by the number of valid entries, which is unknown.
You must be at least eighteen (18) years of age to be eligible for any contest. Employees or agents of StupidVideos, its parent company, subsidiaries, divisions, affiliates, advertising agencies and members of the immediate families of each are not eligible to enter any StupidVideos contest.

Other special voting privileges may be issued based on participation with the site. StupidVideos reserves the right to disregard highest and lowest votes in a consistent manner and/or take other steps in an effort to maintain the integrity of video ratings in its reasonable judgment. Any contest is void where prohibited by law and is subject to federal, state and local rules and regulations. Prize winners are responsible for all taxes associated with contest prizes.

In the event of any such termination prior to the end of the contest term, notice of such termination will be posted on the Website.
