IKEA Mattress Winner

IKEA Mattress contest, IKEA | BrideAccess IKEA Mattress contest, IKEA | BrideAccess

Last Friday was a fun day. IKEA and BrideAccess had a mattress contest, "How long can you go on an IKEA mattress?"

There were 4 couples competing for a King size Mattress set worth about $1000 depending on what they chose. They each wore their favorite college team shirt. We had 2 couples wearing red from the University of Utah (one girl said she really was an Aggie fan) and 2 from BYU.

The first hour was so easy. They all thought this constest was going to be a piece of cake! All they had to do was keep one hand on the mattress - that one hand we put an X on and it had to be on the mattress for the next 6 hours.

Each hour we changed the game! The next hour they couldn't touch one foot on the ground, and they still had to keep their hand on the mattress. We asked the couples questions about each other for another piece of the game. The couple with the most points won a $25 gift card.

Can you answer these questions about the love of your life?

     What is their favorite color? 

     Where was your first date? 

     On which date did you have your first kiss? 

     Where do you want to live when you graduate? 

     How many kids do you want? 

 

3rd hour- keep one hand on your head, one foot still could not touch the ground and one hand on the mattress. With 2 minutes to go before the lunch break, our first couple was OUT! Now we are down to 3 couples.

IKEA provided an awesome lunch for all of us.

After lunch the competition got harder and more fun to watch! The contestants read the IKEA catalog and then were asked questions about it. The winner won a $25 gift card. ALso they had contests that involved IKEA customers just walking around and they were on teams with our 3 couples. Dang one of the 3 couples left forgot to keep her hand on the mattress and reached for her phone in her pocket. We were down to 2 couples.

The next part of the contest I thought was the hardest part- they had to hold 2 bed sheets up above their shoulders for 10 minutes. They were heavy! Both couples did it!

Nest they had to take pillowcases out of their wrapper and put them on 2 pillowcases in their wrappers! Keep in mind their one hand is still on the mattress! John and Lucy seemed to win most of these matches and kept earning those $25 gift cards!

We couldn't seem to shake either of these awesome engaged couples! So now the tie breaker and to find the winner of the king size mattress... At 2:30 we had each couple put together a table, yes with one hand on the mattress.

The 2nd place team was John and Lucy- thanks for making this such a fun competition! They took home a $200 gift card, a romance basket, a table (they said they didn't know if they wanted the reminder they lost!) a bunch of $25 gift cards and an X on their hand to remind them of the good times!

Congratulations to Hao & Osvaldo - winners of the IKEA mattress set today. 6 hours of games and holding your hand on the mattress. Thanks IKEA for the fun day!

They look pretty happy on the mattress! Oh just maybe it just felt good to lay down after 6 hours of this contest!

Thank you IKEA for making this such a fun competition and your generosity of giving away such an awesome prize. They will love it for years!
