Texas - After 50 hours of kissing a Kia Optima at the Southwest Kia dealership in Round Rock, Dilini Jayasuriya has been named the winner in an arduous, week-long car-snogging competition in Texas. 

Only seven people remained in the 96.7 KISS FM's Kiss A Kia contest as organisers decided to name a winner via a lucky draw. The rules stated that if the competition entered its 50th hour and there was more than one contestant remaining, Kiss FM would draw the final winner instead.
