* ''Webcomic/LeastICouldDo'' holds a contest every ValentinesDay where the winner gets to go on a date with a character of their choosing (which means, yes, they get to live out their PerverseSexualLust). Interestingly, ButtMonkey John has had the most luck so far with two dates; protagonist Rayne has also had two, but one was with a [[HoYay gay man]] and the other was with a beautiful blonde, but the rest of the cast did their best to sabotage it.

* Parodied in ''VideoGame/{{Deadpool}}'', when ComicBook/{{Deadpool}} encounters and kills the "[[NoFourthWall contest winner who was supposed to appear in this game]]", whose head seems to be crudely pasted onto a generic flying enemy. Note that no actual contest was held for this game in real life.

* In 1977, ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' held a contest for the GuestHost spot on that year's Christmas episode called the "Anyone Can Host" contest, where an average person gets to be an ''SNL'' guest host. The winner of that contest was Miskel Spillman, an 80-year-old grandmother from New Orleans who happened to be a fan of the show (and still was until she died in the early 1990s). After learning that an old lady won the contest, the ''SNL'' production team tried to get the SexPistols on as the musical guest (as it would drum up more publicity and be hilarious to have a controversial punk band as the musical guest for a show hosted by an old lady), but visa problems caused them to pick Music/ElvisCostello and the Attractions instead. Costello's infamous performance where he stops his planned performance of "Less than Zero" to play "Radio Radio" (a song which was considered too "anti-media" to play on mainstream television at the time) instead has become one of the most iconic in the show's history. Even though Miskel Spillman lives on as ''SNL'''s only non-celebrity to host an episode, her place as the oldest host (which actually once belonged to Ruth Gordon before Spillman usurped it) was usurped years later by another old lady host: Creator/BettyWhite.
