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.

The kissing began at 7:00am (US time) on April 17 but the kissing wasn't all in vain for the other car-snoggers as six contestants received smaller prizes.
