We will disqualify suspicious entrants. If any entrant is suspected of cheating, we reserve the right to choose a winner by a different means.
We monitor the voting very carefully and look for finalists who received a very fast jump in votes on Instagram or Facebook. Kim can check engagement in the back end of her Instagram and verify whether engagement and profile visits correlates with post likes. When these two do not correlate, it shows that the likes were delivered via a third party app.
We take cheating very seriously and reserve the right to immediately disqualify anyone even suspected of buying likes or votes.
