Rice Students Win That MTV Contest And Head To The Oscars
And it's Rice FTW!!!
Sure, the basketball team sucks, the football program's a perpetual work in progress, and even the baseball team ain't what it used to be. But the Owls have DOMINATED the MTV contest to send people to interview celebrities on the Academy Awards red carpet!
We told you about the two Rice students who had entered the contest. MTV announced this afternoon that Faheem Ahmed and Anish Patel were the winners of the online vote, and will be going to LA this weekend.
Where, no doubt, they'll learn covering the Oscars is not as glamorous as it seems. On the other hand, they get a free trip to LA and a chance to see Mickey Rourke's dog up close.
