In connection with this, I further acknowledge and agree that personal details and background information concerning me and my family, including live and delayed recordings, which may include images of me, may be available to the public in the Tournament and on the Website and in advertising, promotion and publicity in connection therewith, as well as for viewing via the Internet and other means, on up to a 24-hours-a-day, 7-days-a-week basis, and shall be included within the definition of "Materials" hereunder.

I further understand that my appearance, depiction and/or portrayal in the Tournament or on the Website (and in advertisements, promotions and publicity for the Tournament, the Website and for the Network (the "Advertisements")), and my actions and the actions of others displayed in the Tournament, on the Website and in Advertisements, may be disparaging, defamatory, embarrassing or of an otherwise unfavorable nature and may expose me to public ridicule, humiliation or condemnation.

The waivers, releases and indemnities in this Agreement and any other agreement that I may execute in connection with the Tournament and the Website expressly apply to any such inclusion and exploitation. Without limiting the generality of any release set forth herein, I hereby expressly release, indemnify, discharge and hold harmless Producer, other Participants, Network and the other Released Parties (as defined herein) for and from any and all claims and liabilities arising out of or in connection with, or predicated upon, any rights of privacy, intentional or negligent infliction of emotional distress, defamation, and/or any other tort and/or damages in any way relating to (i) the disclosure, display, exhibition or other use of personal or other information about me and (ii) the broadcast, display, distribution, or other exploitation of the Material in connection with the Tournament, the Website or in any Advertisements.
