SELECTION CRITERIA: KTLA will review submissions to select up to nine people to participate in the next stage of Creep or Keep (the “Featured Participants”). KTLA will select the “Featured Participants” based on, among other things, its determination of which participants offer the best potential for interesting television viewing and the estimated extent to which the individuals will engage an audience and their potential “date.” Selection is in the sole discretion of KTLA and is determined by neither luck nor skill.

VERIFICATION: KTLA will attempt to contact the Featured Participants in accordance with the information supplied to KTLA with the submission. Featured Participant must respond to initial notification within 12 hours and may be required to present valid photo ID, signed affidavit or declaration of eligibility, liability release, publicity release, tax forms or other legal documents to KTLA after initial notification by any deadlines set by KTLA. Featured Participants must also be willing to undergo a background check if requested. If any Featured Participant: (a) cannot be contacted directly by, or does not respond to, KTLA within 6 hours of initial attempted notification, (b) fails to satisfy any eligibility or verification requirement herein, (c) declines to participate in Creep or Keep, (d) does not provide any required documents by the deadlines, or (e) is otherwise determined to be ineligible, KTLA in its discretion may disqualify that individual and, select an alternate Featured Participant. By participating in the Program, all entrants acknowledge compliance with and agree to be bound by these Terms and Conditions and the decisions of KTLA, which are final in all respects.

DATES AND MATES: All nine Featured Participants will be required to come to KTLA by no later than May 6, 2016 to film short individual profile videos (the “Profiles”), which may be posted to and KTLA’s social media accounts. Of the nine Featured Participants, three will be designated “daters,” and six will be designated “potential mates.” The nine Featured Participants will be divided into three groups (one dater and two potential mates in each) to go on short dates (approximately 10 minutes each) on May 9, 10 or 11, 2016 in which each dater will go out with each of his or her potential mates (the “Dates”). The Dates will be recorded for potential broadcast on KTLA and posting on and on KTLA’s social media accounts. During the Profiles and Dates, all Featured Participants must wear a disguise (to be supplied by KTLA) and cannot remove the disguise while in the presence of the dater or potential mate, as the case may be. The dater will pick his or her potential mate based on which one he or she liked the best. Each Featured Participant may be requested to do one final, short interview prior to the first Final Reveal (as defined below) on May 11, 2016 (the “Final Interview”). The Final Interview will be filmed and may be broadcast on KTLA and posted on and on KTLA’s social media accounts. The Featured Participant will not be required to wear a disguise for the Final Interview.

FINAL REVEAL: KTLA will hold final reveals on the KTLA 5 Morning News on May 16, 18 and 20, 2016 (the “Final Reveals”) between 4:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. PT. Certain Featured Participants will be invited to participate in the Final Reveals—one dater and one potential mate for each of the three groups. During each Final Reveal, which may be broadcast live or on tape by KTLA and may be posted on and on KTLA’s social media accounts, the Featured Participants will finally see each other without any disguises. KTLA will attempt to give each Featured Participant approximately 72 hours advance notice of the Final Reveal, and Featured Participant must arrive at the station by no later than 5:00 a.m. PT on the date of the Final Reveal. If Featured Participant is unavailable on the designated date or late for the Final Reveal, Featured Participant will not be able to participate in the Final Reveal and will not receive a hotel stay and dining certificate as set forth below. If KTLA cancels the Final Reveal, KTLA will attempt to reschedule but cannot guarantee that there will be an open date on the calendar. The opportunity to appear on the KTLA 5 Morning News is not an offer of employment, and Featured Participant represents and warrants that his or her appearance on the KTLA 5 Morning News will not violate any union or guild agreement. The Featured Participants agree to comply with and conform to generally accepted broadcast standards with regard to conduct, dress and language during their appearances on KTLA-TV, and such compliance will be determined by KTLA staff in their sole discretion. KTLA reserves the right to reschedule the date of any Final Reveal because of breaking news, technical problems or unforeseen scheduling conflicts. KTLA reserves the right to conduct the Final Reveals without broadcasting them on television, or to record the Final Reveals and broadcast them on a later date.

HOTEL STAY AND DINING: Each Featured Participant will receive accommodations for at least one person for one night at a hotel of KTLA’s choosing, as well as an associated certificate or credit for dining at an establishment near the chosen hotel. Each Featured Participant is responsible for any applicable fees, federal, state/provincial and local taxes, if any, and any other unspecified expenses associated with acceptance or use of the hotel stay and dining certificate. Hotel accommodations are subject to availability and must be used by May 1, 2017 (unless otherwise indicated on a printed certificate).

Notice of KTLA action in connection with Disruption will be posted at KTLA’s failure or delay in enforcing any of these Terms and Conditions will not be a waiver of that term.
