Right! I think if they survive, it's called being a Super Dave. That's what we called it in high school based on the dumb stuff the Evil Knievel knock off Super Dave used to do.

Girl in dance competition sets her crotch on fire. She's wearing shorts so it's not really graphic but obviously when she's trying to put it out it gets pretty comedic.

Do a search for the girl in the dance competition, you won't regret it. She poured a half a bottle of alcohol on herself, lit it and seemed surprised when flames started shooting out of her nether region.

Isn't it not so clear-cut? I saw some posts arguing that the winner has to die, though I see it otherwise.

The 'winners' of a so-called Darwin Award are those who through their own idiocy remove themselves from the gene pool by inadvertently killing themselves (or, alternately, by somehow rendering themselves permanently sterile). Or, Darwinism - hint: that's why they're called Darwin Awards.

I think you just need to end reproduction. So if you blow off your family jewls in an explosion but survive, then I think that still counts as a darwin award.
