5. Drawing: Administrator is an independent judging organization whose decisions as to the administration and operation of the Prize Draw and the selection of the potential winner is final and binding in all matters related to the Prize Draw.  Administrator will randomly select the potential Prize Draw winner from all eligible entries received during the Promotion Period on 23 July 2018 at 10:00 a.m. ET in Southfield, MI, U.S.A.  The potential winner will be notified by email.

In the event that production, technical, seeding, programming, or any other reasons cause more than the stated number of prizes as set forth in these Official Rules to be available and/or claimed, Sponsor reserves the right to award only the stated number of prizes by a random drawing among all legitimate, un-awarded, eligible prize claims.
