POP 'Til You Drop

Elizabeth covered with balloons
Votes: 776

I'll pin 51 balloons on me in "Roaring 20s" burlesque fashion, and I'll carry a fan made of 51 CMT brochures. I'll then travel to my local downtown and challenge passers by to pop a balloon and take a brochure. I won't come home until all 51 balloons are popped and 51 more people know about CMT.

Of course, an entire video of this adventure will be posted on YouTube for you all to see. What will I be wearing under the balloons you ask? Vote to find out!

I'll color my hair with blue and yellow streaks. Yikes! These are the CMTA colors, but still, my hair! I'll publicly wear my new CMTA hairdo for 51 days. 51 days!

Of course photos and YouTube videos will be posted!

Don't Open 'Til Christmas

Votes: 1014

I'll take a vow of silence for 51 hours. Not a single word will pass these lips. Given that I have never lasted longer than 51 seconds this is actually the most daring of all dares.

My husband Gilles may be inclined to push this one over the top if he sees it getting close. Vegas odds makers are already taking bets on whether this is even possible.
