Hardbody Contest Down to Six Contestants

And then there were six. A half dozen people are left in the "Hands on a Hardbody" contest in Longview. But not without controversy, over a bee. 26 year old Leketric Yarborrough was among the final 12 yesterday, and was considered a strong favorite to win. But, he was disqualified nearly 60 hours into the contest when he tried to swat a bumble-bee away. Judges specifically ousted him for taking his hands off the truck, which is an automatic disqualification. But Yarborrough says that did not happen, leaving both sides with their version of the incident. The contest is being viewed live on a web-site camera, and if you want to get an update just go to the Know More on Seven Icon.
