My husband played the drums in November and the 3/7 sailing on the Dawn. In Nov, there were 10 people in the show. They didnt cut anyone. Last time there was 14 and they cut 4 out. In Nov. they got tote bags with a water bottle and frisbee and the winner's video would be sent to be seen for the contract prize. Last time they got nothing, and nothing was said about a contract. The winner, a man who sang Moon River got a little trophy, think it was plastic. He was a wonderful singer. My huband doesnt go in for the prize. He just loves playing the drums.
