I am Gregoire, your host, your judge, your jury, and your master of ceremonies in the most star-studded safari ever to grace the pages of this -- or any -- gossip column.
As you probably know, I've challenged my spies in L.A. and New York to show me which is the Coast with the Most... Celebrities. I'm prepared to award an utterly spectacular 10,000 points for every genuine celebrity spotted. Furthermore, I've detailed some very special circumstances that will reward extra juicy encounters.
These rules are almost as fickle as fame itself, but read them closely and you'll understand the true scope of fabulousness that the Glam-Quest will unleash. I will be updating these firm-but-gentle regulations throughout the game, and, as with most things, all Gregoire's judgements are final.
Are we ready to play?
Rules and Regulations
I. Teams, Judging, and Reporting
Two celebrity-spotting teams will be convened and managed by Captains Asher (LA) and Amy (NY). The teams will have the same number of players (most of the time). Captains will submit report of their teams' sightings to Gregoire each week. Gregoire will award points and render judgements, as usual. (Hey, it's I does, right? Think about it.) Results will be published each week in the column.
As judge, jury, and MC of Glam-Quest 2000, I, Gregoire, will manage the proceedings from my booth at the Times Square Hojo's. My rulings may be challenged, but not overturned. Team BG will fulfill an advisory role and keep the cheese fries coming.
Glam-Quest 2000 begins officially at 9:00 p.m. on June 27th in each respective time zone. The game will end at 11:59 p.m. on Saturday July 29th, also in each respective time zone. In the event of a tie, there will be a one-week Star-Off until August 5th.
A valid celebrity sighting includes confirmed identification of a TV, movie, stage, literary, radio, or political personage. Some individuals who are "famous for being famous" may also count. Final judgement on borderline cases belongs to me, Gregoire.
Said famous personage may be spied at any "non-official" event.
NOTE: As in real life, stalking is strictly prohibited. All meetings must be coincidental. Trolling, however, is permitted. Meeting stars through friends at a private social function is valid. Asking friends to introduce you to stars to generate points is creepy. Pre-existing contacts, sadly, are forfeit.
Each valid celebrity sighting is worth 10,000 points. (What? You think we're kidding around?)
Our celebrity spotters can apply one of the following multipliers where appropriate to increase the points awarded to each sighting.
When all the drama is over, the winning team will have more points -- and thus be more fabulous -- than the non-winning team. We will reward this with a prize that can only be described as "priceless."
I, Gregoire, am free to revise, add to, or subtract from any and all rules contained herein at my complete whim and discretion. When you've got your own game, you can make the rules.
