Tune in alert, folks: On the Nov. 28 episode of Tyra Banks’ talk show, she gives away the Volvo that Robert Pattinson’s Edward drives in Twilight to one of the fans turned away at his canceled, out-of-control autograph session in San Francisco earlier this month. The bad news: The girl had to win it in a pie-eating contest.
AP reports that Pattinson and his costar Taylor Lautner (Jacob) cheered on the three contestants during Thursday’s taping of Tyra’s Twilight hour: “I still can’t believe they are making you guys do this,” Pattinson reportedly said. “Oh, geez!” (Try to forget that he just used the phrase “Oh, geez!” and focus on the positive: he’s apparently never seen The Tyra Banks Show before.) Two of the girls tied in the pie-eating contest, so Tyra determined the winner by having them guess Pattinson’s and Lautner’s combined weight (320 pounds). In my mind, that’s when Pattinson made a mental note to call his Harry Potter buddy Daniel Radcliffe and ask him if he ever had to do this kinda crap. (In Tyra’s defense, the victor, 18-year-old Tiffany Kuhne, told AP, “This is the best thing that has ever happened to me in my entire life,” so she’s not exactly scarred.)
What piece of the Twilight pie would you want to take home (bodies precluded), and what would you be willing to do for that particular piece of movie memorabilia?
