The Edge Lost in a Box sees its first twist

The Edge Lost in a Box sees its first twist – it’s two strangers in a box this time round!

Just when you thought it couldn’t get any crazier, The Edge’s Lost in a Box 2 announces a new twist in this radical social experiment.

There will now be TWO lost listeners (complete strangers) thrown together to battle it out for the $20,000 prize! 22-year-old budding business owner from Auckland, Lilia Petrova, will be joined by finalist Paul Larsen, 23, also from Auckland, in what could become the most awkward moment The Edge has seen!
“I’m speechless! I wasn’t planning on having a ‘flatmate’ inside a tiny box but I’ll give it a go!” says Larsen.

“If I manage to survive and get someone to find me in the box, I plan to give my mum the $20,000 to finish off our family home. Mum’s been chipping away at it since I was a kid and being a mother of eight kids I think she deserves it.”
“I’m a bit freaked out about living with a stranger to be honest! But I’ll give it my best shot – I’m on a mission!” adds Petrova.

There’s a whole lot of cash for Edge listeners to win during Lost on a Box 2 – $10,000 is up for grabs for whoever finds finds the box, as well as a hundred bucks a day being given away! To get their hands on the cash, listeners must guess where they think the box is by placing a pin on the map at theedge.co.nz – the person who guesses the closest, wins! Clues will be given out twice a day so listeners need to stay tuned to win.
