2013 winner TJ on what it means to triumph

“Being crowned BNOC of the Year undoubtedly changed my life for the better.

“I didn’t think it was a big deal initially…but the crown in Exeter matters man…

“Winning the contest made me exciting enough to be considered for the job in accountancy I had lusted after for so long.”

What makes a BNOC?

Think you’ve got someone in mind? We’ve made it easy for you to identity a potential BNOC; if they tick these boxes, we wanna know about them.

1. DISGUSTING LEVELS OF POPULARITY– as the acronym suggests, they needs to be someone everyone knows. Whether they’re walking up Forum hill, in the gym, or by the bar in Arena, everyone around them knows who they are. Or at the very least has Facebook stalked them. Anonymity is not a concept BNOCs are familiar with.

2. THEY’RE THAT GUY– you may never have met the person, but their name is constantly associated with a certain function or purpose within the university community.  For example ‘you know the X guy? The guy who is always at Y with X! X Guy!’

3.  INEFFABLE UBIQUITY- neither you nor anyone you know has ever actually met this person directly, nor do you know what their purpose or function within the university actually is, but you all know their name anyway.

We will Photoshop this onto your profile picture if you win
