The Buried Life MTV Stars

Contiki, the original youth travel brand for 18-35s, is thrilled to announce its exciting new collaboration with L.A.-based MTV Stars, The Buried Life, by celebrating the launch of The #5thMember Search online contest!

Millennials can share their stories through social media channels, giving them a chance to win an EPIC trip to Italy with Jonnie Penn, Ben Nemtin, Dave Lingwood and Duncan Penn. These young celebrities will personally select one lucky winner who will join them on Contiki’s Easy Pace 8-day Italian Espresso itinerary where they will enjoy BackStage Pass Exclusives such as a guided tour through a Tuscan winery and exploring the iconic cities of Rome, Florence and Venice.

In 2006, The Buried Life, whose members hail from Victoria, Canada, embarked on a two-week road trip across North America before they returned to university. That brief road trip was transformed into an incredible journey that continues to this day. The foursome made a list of ‘100 Things to Do Before You Die’ and for every list item they accomplished, they helped a stranger do something on their list.

Since then, they’ve crossed off ‘Make a TV Show’ (produced 26 MTV USA episodes which aired in 110 countries), ‘Write a #1 New York Times Bestselling Book’, ‘Play Ball with President Obama’, and Outfit a Teenage Girl with her First Bionic Arm’. They have also given motivational presentations at over 100 North American college campuses and several TEDx Talks across Europe. Along the way, they’ve encouraged millions to believe that anything is possible.

The #5thMember Search
: Contest runs from April 28 to May 8.
Millennials can submit three online entries each on The Buried Life’s social media channels including Facebook, which includes 1.3 million fans, Twitter and Instagram. They can share their stories and photos on why they want to be the 5th member and join The Buried Life on Contiki’s Italy trip by entering the contest through their Facebook page. Candidates will also need to include the hashtag: #5thMember. The Buried Life will review the most compelling submissions, personally select the one winner and both brands will make the announcement on May 8.
