Georgia Army Officer Wins Week Three IWantMyManCave.com Contest Prize

RJ Note: Man Cave? Hey, remember that women have come a long way and also like their own spaces! Ever think about "I want my woman spa"?

(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sports fan Lloyd Dillard from Savannah, Ga., is the third weekly winner of the IWantMyManCave.com contest sponsored by Bill Me Later®. Upon his return from Iraq, the Army Chief Warrant Officer faced stiff competition, with thousands of entries received in the third week of the contest. He is also eligible to win the grand prize – a Man Cave makeover valued at up to $15,000. As a weekly winner, he receives prizes from Fathead.

“I’m not sure what hurt more – watching Lloyd break down in tears over his busted big screen TV or the glare from the bright yellow paint in his Man Cave,” said Chris Williams, vice president of marketing for Bill Me Later, Inc. “While Lloyd’s TV looks to be a Man Cave casualty, the Fathead wall-size poster prize will quickly resuscitate Lloyd’s Man Cave d├ęcor, and kick start his Cave’s recovery. In less than a month, Bill Me Later has studied thousands of Man Cave calamities, but there’s only one remedy – the grand prize Man Cave makeover!”

What is a Man Cave?

A Man Cave is a room that includes male-centric style and is used for watching sports, shooting pool, and being with the guys. It is frequently where the cave dweller displays items considered undesirable for display elsewhere in the home by their significant other. The 2008 Man Cave Survey of 1,000 consumers found there are 11 million Man Caves in America and 24 percent of Man Cave dwellers spend more than 20 hours a week in their Cave.

Bill Me Later’s retail partners have everything needed to build a man’s paradise in his home, and the grand prize winner will fill their Man Cave with up to $15,000 of merchandise from merchants, including Dick’s Sporting Goods, Newegg, Fathead, Sports Authority, FogDog, Lenovo, Blendtec and TigerDirect.
