The first round of The Ultimate Writer Season 5 has officially come to a close… TUW 23 featured a Battle Royale where all the contestants went go head-to-head to determine the season’s bracket and our contestant rankings.
If you didn’t know, TUW is a competition for The Scrap’s staff. This year will feature every content creator that works for the site in a competition of article views. The winners will be determined weekly when highest article views go head-to-head to determine The Ultimate Writer (unless otherwise specified). This first round was two weeks long, and each contestant’s highest viewed article (each week) was added together for their total score.
The Scrap staff participating in TUW Season 5 will be competing for the grand prize of $150 and their choice of a WWE or UFC NFT (Non-Fungible Token).
