Wacky Contest from Groupon.com - Win $100,000

Think you could cut everything out of your life for the next year to win $100,000?!

A new challenge is looking for one daring individual to live for an entire year off the daily deals from the website Groupon.com.

"There's somebody out there who saw this contest and said this is what I was destined to do. For the right type of person this contest will fit them like a glove," Andres Mason, founder of Groupon.com said.

You have to give up your job, your apartment, put your furniture in storage and cut up your credit cards. They even take the clothes off your back and replace it with coupons - literally.

"All they'll have will be a paper suit made out of Groupons and then we'll unleash them into the world," Mason said.

If the contestant lasts a year, they win $100,000.

Applications are being accepted until February 24 and Mason said the chosen contestant will need to be resilient.

"It's going to take a special type of person but yeah, I think it can be done," he said.

    I thought so too.

    I know someone who I think is perfect for this and already called them and told them to apply.

    However, living that type of "homeless" lifestyle is not for everyone.

    I honestly don't see a lot of people trying to cash in on this.

    It requires some major life changes.
