Get Paid $1,000 to Binge-Watch Glow-Up Movies

Title graphic of binge-watch glow-up movies contest


Urban Dictionary describes a “glow-up” as a “mental, physical, or emotional transformation for the better.” The term glow-up is relatively new, popularized by TikTok culture, but the concept has been ubiquitous in Hollywood films since Julia Roberts donned her red, off-the-shoulder gown at the opera in the 1990 classic “Pretty Woman.”

A glow-up is not a one-size-fits-all idea — it can take shape as someone feeling actualized in their career or feeling comfortable in their own skin for the first time. To celebrate the transformational tale, Shane Co. is enlisting someone to binge-watch 10 glow-up movies and compare the protagonists’ transformations to win $1,000. If this feels like the perfect job task for you, feel free to apply below!

Who We’re Looking For

We’re looking for film lovers who feel inspired by a good glow-up story to watch 10 glow-up movies. Glow-up movies are films where the main character experiences a memorable mental and physical makeover. In addition to watching the movies, you’ll be asked to take notes and track specific details in each of the movies. 

The ideal applicant will have:

  • A strong personal growth or glow-up story of their own
  • A love for all things cinematic 
  • The ability and availability to binge-watch 10 movies in a short period of time

Additionally, applicants must be 18 years or older and a U.S. citizen or permanent resident to apply. 

What You’ll Need to Do

We’ve narrowed the list of glow-up movies to 10 that you’ll be asked to binge-watch over one month’s time:

  1. Pretty Woman
  2. The Devil Wears Prada
  3. Miss Congeniality
  4. My Fair Lady
  5. Crazy, Stupid, Love
  6. Mulan (2020)
  7. Last Holiday
  8. Can’t Buy Me Love
  9. My Big Fat Greek Wedding
  10. Moonstruck

You’ll receive a separate worksheet to complete for each movie as you watch. All movies will need to be watched and all worksheets need to be completed by Friday, September 9. 

What You’ll Get

The winner will be announced on Friday, August 12, and will receive a $1,000 payment. In addition to the $1,000 payment, we’ll provide a $50 Amazon gift card to rent the movies on the list.

I’m an avid movie watcher of and for life experience, as I have had plenty of life experience.

This is going to be an interesting contest! And the prize is watching movies?? Ummm, yes please! It’s like the mother ship calling me home.

What an amazing idea!

Silver lining playbook should be added to this list. As a mental health advocate, I found this movie very uplifting. Also, Ratatouille is a great addition too.

I am a huge movie buff. I love a good story where people overcome obstacles and get their dream come true. I was recently incarcerated and am living proof that good deeds are rewarded.

Hello. I am a little bit confused. I can tell about glow up that impacted me from any movie I want or the movies that needed to be watched ?

I’d be happy to watch movies!!

I hope this works out!

My favorite Glow up movie is The Mirror Has Two Faces with Barbara Streisand. Glow Ups can happen at any age!

I love watching movies

This sounds like so much fun. I’m a huge movie lover and really enjoy all generes. I watch millions of movies as it is so this is just a great way to make money doing what I love and taking notes sounds like so much fun. What would be even better is if we could all talk about it after! Kinda like a book club but for movies! I hope I’m picked would be alot of fun and an honor.

At last! A reason for me NOT to feel guilty about spending the whole day in my home theater (120” screen, 10 speakers) B-I-N-G-I-N-G !!!
