Survive It To Drive It

A survival competition is underway on Cork’s 96/103FM with four people now living in a Volkswagon Beetle in Douglas Village Shopping Centre.

At 9am this morning, four contestants waved goodbye to their loved ones for at least two nights. The carmates, who in a cruel twist have been forbidden from brushing their hair, washing their teeth and using deodorant for the duration of their stay in the car, will be eliminated one by one by the stations’ listeners. The first eviction will take place on Wednesday morning.

On Friday morning, with two finalists remaining inside the car, the final eviction will be made live on the Neil Prendeville show on 96FM. Neil will link up with Patricia Messenger in North Cork and John Greene in West Cork – the two local services from 103FM County Sound.

Cork’s 96 & 103FM are keeping a constant eye on the contestants by webcam and by live feeds from the car to the station, which can be accessed at random.
