Tired of seeing advertisements offering to help people shed 30 pounds in 30 days, web site http://www.thespark.com started an unusual contest.
They chose two slender youths in their 20's from hundreds of contestants, and offered to give them $3,000 for _gaining_ 30 pounds in 30 days.
The two are well on their way to winning. Former homecoming queen Nicole Warren has gained 20 pounds in the first 19 days, and 21-year-old Eric Schrock has put on 16. But it might not be as fun as it sounds. "I'm sick of eating," Warren complains.
