Teen wins "Twilight" car on the Tyra Banks Show


Teen wins 'Twilight' car on 'Tyra Banks Show'

2 hours ago

NEW YORK (AP) — Sometimes it pays to have your heart broken.

An 18-year-old who was among some 3,000 teens turned away from an autograph session with "Twilight" star Robert Pattinson when the crowd at a San Francisco mall grew unruly was surprised during a Thursday taping of "The Tyra Banks Show" — by Pattinson himself.

Oh yeah, and she won the young vampire's Volvo, too.

"This is the best thing that has ever happened to me in my entire life," Tiffany Kuhne said after the taping of the show, which airs Nov. 28.

Police canceled a Nov. 10 autograph session at the Stonestown Galleria when 3,000 people — mostly teenage girls, and hundreds more than expected — arrived early and began pushing their way inside. At least one girl was injured.

"The Tyra Banks Show" flew Kuhne and two other teenagers involved in the crush to New York for a "Twilight"-themed show — though they had no idea that Pattinson and co-star Taylor Lautner would be there.

The film stars then encouraged the girls as they participated in a pie-eating contest, with the prize being "Twilight memorabilia."

"I still can't believe they are making you guys do this," Pattinson said as the pie-eating wore on. "Oh, geez!"

Two of the girls tied. Kuhne won a tiebreaker by precisely guessing the combined weight of the co-stars: 320 pounds.

Kuhne was blindfolded and led outside to discover that the "memorabilia" she'd won was the Volvo that Pattinson's character drives in the movie, which opened Friday.

"I feel absolutely amazing, ecstatic," said Kuhne, who works at a coffee shop and did not previously own a car. "I can't believe everything that just happened did."
