My Favorite Contenders For The #SelfieOlympics. Yes. Such A Thing Exists!

The selfie phenomenon, where people take pictures of their self from unrealistic angles or with the aid of a mirror, is one of the biggest fad of 2013. Come 2014 and it seems like this, what other people refer to as "narcissist" craze, is here to stay and it has become even more challenging, more competitive - as in Olympics level!

It is not even a week since the new year and there is already a new trend where both teenagers and 20-somethings battle it out on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Google+ for the wackiest, most creative, and most mind blowing selfie. Mind you, some of these selfies just screams NSFW so check at your own risk!

Despite having no real prize involved, a couple of Twitter accounts and Facebook pages dedicated for the selfie game are sprouting one by one but I haven't seen much penetration here in the Philippines as of this writing. It seems like my kababayans are still not over with the Facebook number game which is so 2010? If you are a Filipino reading this post, go make a Selfie Games 2014 page now and take pride in being the first few to jump into the craze! Ready. Set. Selfie!

Below are some of my favorite selfies. You can follow along from your preferred social media outlet using the hashtags #selfiegames2014 and #selfieOlympics.

It takes real skills (or serious luck) to get this shot or you can say goodbye to your iPhone forever.
