An update, then not an update, then what?

There’s been much confusion around the Tiger Blood internship competition lately. An announcement was supposed to be made June 1st, but that came and went with no word from Team Sheen.

We wait …

We wait …

And we wait …

And then! Fellow Top 50 TigerBloodInter finalist @bennyluo takes to twitter and announces he’s a Top 3 finalist! Pretty neat! The dude has almost 11,000 followers, I’m not gonna hate. But where are the other two? No one comes forward and trust me, if I had heard something, I would’ve said something.

People began to doubt Benny. I was still unsure. What reason did he have to lie? Almost a week passes … some people — fellow Top 50 finalists and others — voice their distrust. Some support Benny to the full extent. I wished him a congrats and stayed quiet. There was no verification and I didn’t want to take a stand. What if Benny was telling the truth? I didn’t want to rag on him.

Then tonight.

I feel bad for Benny, I really do. He announced on twitter tonight that he was no longer in the running and followed up with a blog post showing screenshots of emails from

So now we’re back at square one. Not sure what’s going on. There could be a Top 48. According to the email correspondance between Benny and Sean Rad from, an intern was already chosen. Who was it? Not sure, but if it was me, I have yet to be notified.

Some people have asked what’s involvement is in this whole process. If you look back, Charlie Sheen’s first two tweets about the TigerBlood Internship were “via network.” See below.

The original tweet (first of the above two) was a paid promotional tweet, hence the hashtag #ad. There was no lie about it being an ad. That #ad brought you to, who made an agreement through with Team Sheen. does not have a deal with Team Sheen, they have a deal with Therefore, has direct contact with Team Sheen, not (Of course, all us #tigerbloodintern hopefuls are still super duper thankful for all the hard work the team has done and the connections they made with us on Twitter!)

When handed off the Top 50 picks, they handed them off to and Team Sheen. That was their subway stop, the end of their trip.

How do I know this? Trust me, I’m a journalist 😉

So here we are, waiting. Maybe something will be said tomorrow. Who knows. At this point, we just want some closure!
