2010 Jeep Wrangler Islander Winners
Three Consumers Solve Online Clues and Win All-new 2010 Jeep Wrangler Islander in Jeep National Tiki Hunt Contest.
In a unique online contest, the Jeep brand buried three “Jeep Tikis” across the U.S. as part of the national “Jeep Tiki Hunt” contest, which began April 1. Within the past week, all three Jeep Tikis were found, bringing the contest to a close with three people winning a limited-edition 2010 Jeep Wrangler Islander. Including Virginia Beach resident, Melissa Block.
Each week since the contest began, clues were unveiled to consumers on JeepTikiHunt.com and posted to the Jeep brand’s Facebook site and Twitter handle. Each Jeep Tiki was equipped with a GPS tracking device and contained a unique telephone number affixed directly to it.
The Jeep Wrangler Islander Tiki Hunt was the second phase of a broader consumer contest launched in conjunction with the introduction of the all-new 2010 Jeep Wrangler Islander. Previously, Jeep hosted the “Jeep Tweet-to-Win” contest on the brand’s Twitter page, where five lucky winners were awarded with trips to the 2010 New York International Auto Show to compete to win an all-new 2010 Jeep Wrangler Islander. The five winners dug in a giant sandbox outside the show, with one finding a Jeep Tiki and winning the first Jeep Wrangler Islander model.
“Since we introduced the all-new 2010 Jeep Wrangler Islander, we have had the pleasure of giving away four vehicles to four Jeep fans through our social media contests, ‘Tweet-to-Win’ and ‘Jeep Tiki Hunt,’” said Mike Manley, President and CEO – Jeep Brand, Chrysler Group LLC. “This unique experience has given us the opportunity to connect and communicate directly with Jeep consumers on several levels, while igniting passion for the Jeep brand, the Jeep Wrangler and the all-new Islander.
“While four lucky consumers have won an all-new Jeep Wrangler Islander, anyone can go to their Jeep dealer to purchase one, while they last,” Manley added.
A limited number of 2010 Jeep Wrangler Islander models are still available in Jeep showrooms nationwide, including at Hall Chrysler Jeep Dodge on Virginia Beach Blvd.
Justin Walter Reade-Chitaphana, from Los Angeles, was the first contestant to find a Jeep Tiki, which was hidden in a flower pot on Venice Beach. Melissa Block, from Virginia Beach, Va., was the second winner, uncovering a Jeep Tiki at The Crystal Gardens at Navy Pier in Chicago. The third and final winner was Scott Carman of Golden, Colo., who discovered a Jeep Tiki attached to the wheel of Buffalo Bill’s horse and buggy at the Buffalo Bill Museum & Grave in Golden, Colo.
