Contest To Find Most Pathetic Person Living With Parents

CHICAGO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Adults who live at home with their parents are usually the butt of jokes, but it can earn them a little dough thanks to a new contest.

Apartments.com is holding its second-annual Room to Move Contest where participants turn in a 200-300 word essay describing their pathetic circumstances in hopes of winning thousands of dollars in cash that can be used to rent their own apartment.

In an attempt to further prevent the winner from going back to live with mom and dad, an interior designer will make-over the winner’s newly-vacated room and turn it into whatever his or her parents want – such as a workout room or an arts and crafts room.

Contest spokesman Michael Ricciardelli expects “hundreds” of people to enter the contest at apartments.com when it starts tomorrow (Mar. 9) and hopes it inspires “the unlucky” to establish their own independence and fly the coop for good.
