MonsterDare.com – Get Paid to Be Humiliated
Do you dare? If you’re one to fancy JackAss or any number of its rip-offs, MonsterDare is right up your alley. This social dare site lets you wager cash on daring your friends to do ridiculous, bizarre and inanely stupid stunts.
Dares are conveniently categorized: there are challenging dares, silly ones, rated X dares, impossible dares, and romantic dares among others. To place your wager you’ll need a PayPal account; MonsterDare charges you 50p if you only deposit £5, nothing is charged for higher amounts. They also take 10% from winning dare funds to cover their own PayPal charges. Once you’ve taken up a dare, you cannot back out. If you complete the dare to everyone’s satisfaction, provided you have video or photo proof, you’ll get the money (it is however another 1.50 to take out any money). A sampling of dares include: ‘I dare you to flash your beautiful bum to me,” “I dare you to play with sharks!,” and “egg Cherie and Tony Blaire”. If anyone is willing to break an iPhone in public, they’ll get $100, plus the dare pot fund of £96.
MonsterDare.com In Their Own Words
“What is Monster Dare?
Monster Dare is a social dare network. It allows you to set dares for your friends, the public or yourself. You can also enter dares that other people have set or just watch other people attempting dares.”
Why MonsterDare.com It Might Be A Killer
There is unfortunately, a niche audience for this very type of site. People are mesmerized by absurd stunts especially when there’s money involved. It’s either pure stupidity or just plain entertainment, or a broad mixture of both, but it certainly has its appeal to male youth. It’s also definitely very interactive; users have to be very committed to the stakes.
Some Questions About MonsterDare.com
Will anyone take up the dares? What about injuries, deaths, etc? Could there be liability suits? Is the market too niche to maintain a constant flow of revenue? The MonsterDare fees are rather steep; will that turn off potential members?
