I am not going to give up because of you!

We all have a chance, so I suggest to the members to vote for everyone, including you.

I did not say I am the only one that has a chance to win the contest. I said that I think I have the best chance to win the contest, of Max members, and based on my position being the highest ranked of current members, I think that assessment is accurate.

I definitely encourage everyone to vote for all members. I want a true BMW enthusiast to win this job, just like most people on these forums.

I really don't want to be perceived like I am selfishly asking for favouritism, because from Day 1 I've been very supportive of other competitors and having been voting regularly for our members here.

In future please exercise more discretion when attributing statements to me, there's a big difference between thinking I have the best shot and thinking I have the only shot.

Thank you.

You can make it to the next round without making the top 20.

Although I'm currently 28th, the rules specifically state, and Mark Endras said anyone caught altering the results will be disqualified hence moving others up. Like those using rotating IP addresses to move forward etc. That includes most of the top 20, NOT everyone, but many. I've not done this, and asked everyone voting for me not to do this as there's no point. This contest is to see who can get the most attention by many different people voting, not cheating. I'd love nothing more than to get a chance at this position, but i will not cheat to get there! Also in the rules and regs, Endras reserves the right to select someone from outside the top 20 that they seem fit for the position, so it's really open to anyone, and don't think they're not reading what everyone is posting in blogs, on twitter, fb, and forums. Keep it clean and non confrontational.

I hope that "keep it clean" comment wasn't directed at me. I really am supportive of everyone's bids and I did not know that they had the right to select people outside of the Top 20, that's great news for me.

I do stand by my opinion that I am the best candidate for this job, and I'm sure others feel the same way, we're entitled to that.

All I wanted to do is clarify a position that I did not take (thinking I had the only shot at this job).

Good luck everyone.

When you mean "rotating IP addresses" does that mean that lets say my Mother in law in Vietnam votes and shut down her PC and in a few minutes re-starts it and goes to the blog website and relies that she can vote again, is that "rotating IP addresses"?

Just watched all the video's, and voted once for each video that was worth watching, which sadly means, I did not make may votes. Was hoping for alot more out of the video's.

It is a shame that neither Randy or John made it through to the next stage. I took a look at some of those videos. Some of them look like they applied to the wrong competition, others simply show that they don't know how to make a video. Guess this is what happens when you run a competition based on who has the most friends clicking for them.

To me this guy should probably get it: http://endrasbmw.com/ultimateblogger/Ebnerd
