Thanks to you guys, the Truffles Video Bomb Competition was a huge hit! We got tons of awesome entries from fans around the world. The winners, Unicornius and Tricksy, will make cameo appearances in the upcoming episode, Pet Peeve. When is the episode going up, you ask? Well, keep your eyes peeled for it this Thursday. *Wink wink*

But what about the rest of the fan-characters? The ones who fought hard, but didn't make the cut? Well get your pencils ready, because here is YOUR chance to take another shot at the cameo spot!
