Aaron Williams, 25, from Banbury has been shortlisted to take part in an unusual experience on behalf of Febreze Car.
If selected, he will be part of a trio of drivers to undertake a very special road trip across Europe in one car over three weeks starting at the end of June.
The trip will see them navigate a series of “surprisingly aromatic challenges” and will be documented through a series of online episodes so that the public can watch the experiment unfold.
The former Banbury Sound Radio presenter said: “When I saw that there was an opportunity to audition for this trip, I knew it was an adventure wanted to be on! To get to this point I proved that I will be a daring member of the driving team and well able to keep viewers entertained for the duration. Eating the hottest chillies, writing a song on the spot and demonstrating my passion for balloon animals… nothing phased me and I’m really excited to have been whittled down to the final nine.”
He added, “I applied on the off chance I might be the sort of person they were looking for, and it turns out that I am. If I get to go on the trip, you can expect me to be doing anything necessary to get the laughs I’m after, showing everyone what I’m about as a person and to see how I cope when pushed to my limits.”
Based on their sparkling wit, ingenuity and daring, the winners will be selected by a judging panel including representatives from Febreze, Caviar Production, Grey Advertising and an independent adjudicator.
Members of the public have the chance to influence the selection by picking their favourite drivers online by June 22.
The winning drivers will then be announced on June 23.
