Relive the soul-crushing moment our Live Rent Free winner wasn't home to win the $20k

The Morning Rumble 05/08/2021

It's been a week since we gave away the massive $20,000 prize so you could Live Rent Free, cheers to SaveMyBacon.co.nz, and it hasn't gotten any easier to watch.

After four weeks of taking entries, Bryce snuck down to Christchurch to knock on James Flanagan's door, hoping to surprise him with $20k.

All James had to do was come to the door within 3 minutes, and the money was all his. Thing was, James had already left for work - only 15 minutes earlier.

Watch as Bryce awkwardly stands there until the timer runs out, and us then giving it away to a new winner over the phone.

But....every story has a happy-ish ending, right?
