If this component of the Prize cannot be assigned to the confirmed winner’s Guest in a manner that is completely satisfactory to the Sponsor, then the confirmed winner will forfeit this aspect of the Prize in its entirety and nothing will be substituted in its place. In any such case, however, the remainder of the Prize will still be awarded to the confirmed winner in accordance with these Official Rules and Regulations (the “Rules”).
