Bravo Offers Fans a Chance to Score Exclusive VIP BravoCon Passes
Bravo fans were outraged when tickets to the first-ever BravoCon were swiftly consumed only within minutes of going on sale. The lucky fans who scored tickets to the three-day event in Manhattan on November 15 through 17, will have a chance to meet and interact with their favorite Bravolebrities.
Most fans have all but written the event off … until now. During Sunday’s broadcast of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, host Andy Cohen made an exciting announcement. “We are giving away three pairs of three day, VIP, Bravoholic passes to BravoCon, which as you know are completely sold out,” Cohen enthusiastically said in a shared Instagram clip. Individual VIP Bravoholic tickets retailed for $574.50, plus fees.
“So starting tonight, check out our Instagram stories, at Bravo WWHL,” Cohen directed. “Tell us what makes you Bravo’s number one fan, you have all week long to enter.”
Here’s how to enter
Fans reacted immediately on the WWHL Instagram video with a number of people announcing they’ve entered. Bravo made it easy to enter too. Visit WWHL‘s Instagram story to obtain a link to the entry form. According to the form, fans have until Friday, September 29 at 11:59 p.m. ET to enter.
Details fans must furnish include their name, city, and state where they live. Plus email address, phone number, and fans must confirm they are at least 21 years of age.
But what Bravo really wants to know is why you are their number one fan. According to the entry, “Feel free to be as creative as you like! Optimal: Include links to photographs, tweets and other fun Bravo content on your social media.” Bravo fans can only enter once, so make that entry count.
Controversy surrounds BravoCon
Fans were floored when the network first announced the ticket structure. Days prior to tickets going on sale, fans scoffed at prices. A one-day ticket retailed for about $300, but fans could pay close to $1500 for three-day SVIP “Future Bravoleb” entry. Indeed prices are high as DragCon fans paid about $300 for the top tier ticket this fall in New York City.
But then fan annoyance over price turned to anger when they couldn’t even purchase the tickets. The flagship event went on sale in mid-August and completely sold out within minutes. Maybe Bravo underestimated the breadth of its fan base.
While some fans took to social media to excitedly share they scored tickets, others bemoaned how quickly they were shut out. One fan wrote, “Want to know what is not a
#mazel? #BravoCon selling out in 2 minutes… such a disappointment @BravoTV.”
Adding insult to injury, scalpers seemed to scoop up tickets too and resale them for significantly more money. For instance, fans can still purchase tickets through Vivid Seats but they’ll pay exponentially more money. A basic, three-day pass is going for $1457 on the lowest end. This is compared to the retail price of $300. The three-day SVIP “Future Bravoleb” price can set fans back a whopping $4,612 for a single ticket. Ticket prices also do not include transportation or hotel.
