Once again, the pressure from the "Hands on a Hardbody" contest proves tragic. For the first time, resulting in suicide.

Rob Bindler made the "Hands on a Hardbody" contest from my hometown of Longview, Texas into national news with his documentary.

The annual contest draws many people, with many hopes, the main one is to win a free truck.

Sadly, this year, the pressure was too much for one contestant, who left the contest, walked across the street to Kmart, did a smash & grab, and ended his life with a shotgun.

ending the contest early, out of 'respect' for the family.

oh man, the pressure!
