Entrants whose Story is selected are referred to as “Contestants”. The Station will also select two (2) alternates in their sole and absolute discretion (“Alternates”). In the event that there aren’t three (3) qualified Contestants then the Station will select two (2) Contestants.

Significant Others will then be brought on-air and asked how they believe that the Contestant answered the question. The winning Couple (“Grand Prize Winner”) will be selected in the sole and absolute discretion of Angelo Cataldi and the Morning Team and be based upon, but not limited to: the creativity of the answers, how many questions were answered the same by both members of the Couple, the interaction of the Couple on-air.
