Contiki is proud to present our participation in the YOMYOMF YouTube network's show Internet Icon, an American Idol-esque original series that had YouTube star hopefuls battle it out in a series of challenges to become the next Internet Icon!
Hosted by YouTuber Chester See and judged by YouTube sensation Ryan Higa and actress Christine Lakin, the top 10 contestants selected from the series were narrowed down week by week, featuring top YouTube guest judges. The grand prize winner receives a trip for 2 on Contiki's European Discovery! We were invited to attend the final taping of the show's inaugural season. Check it out!
Contiki received an invitation to attend the filming the the final episode of Internet Icon at the Los Angeles Center Studios in Hollywood this past Tuesday. After interviews with the eliminated contestants from the Top 10, we watched a tribute video and then the final submissions from the two finalists: Lana McKissack and the Brothers Riedell. Based on votes, the first ever Internet Icon was crowned. Watch the finale here! (spoiler alert: winner revealed below!)
CONGRATULATIONS TO THE BROTHERS RIEDELL!
