Still depressed over not making the final rounds in Australia's "Island Reef Job" contest? Sulk no longer, as Tahiti has stepped up to give us burgeoning video competition pros a reason to go on: their "Invest In Your Love" contest. While the grand prize doesn't involve living on a sparsely-populated island far from civilization, it will get you a free trip to one or two.

President Obama is certainly concerned about the economic situation here at home, but his worries are mostly focused on houses, money, and stocks—not on filling hotels full of tourists. However, that is the worry of French Polynesia's President Oscar Temaru. He’s calling the current tourism situation in the island nation “catastrophic.”
President Temaru has told lawmakers that hotel occupancy has been dismal, with some days seeing only a 20 percent occupancy rate. Temaru is close to naming a new tourism minister, who is going to have a lot of work ahead of him as well as a lot of sleepless nights. Hey, at least you can get a good spot by the pool, right?
Restrictions are usually a given when airlines dare to charge you just an arm for a nice vacation. But Air Tahiti Nui's latest deal, a $600-ish round-trip from LAX to Papeete, Tahiti, is really all business.
The price is an approximate $200-400 savings over average prices on Air Tahiti Nui (or much more when compared to Qantas' fares), but check out the fine print. You've only got three days left to book it, and you must return from Papeete on February 5. You get a whopping choice of two departure dates: January 27 or January 28. It's a healthy discount, but the rules kinda kill the romance if you were hoping to take a date.

It's an open secret that Air Tahiti Nui is a great way to reach Australia from the U.S., and especially from the East Coast, where at least one connection is required anyway. Their fares are often lower than Qantas', their planes are often less crowded, and they offer a free stopover in Tahiti. Plus, they won't mind if you go after a mile-high club membership with your "lover."
The above bizarre promotion is being run around a limited sale: fly non-stop to Papeete, Tahiti, from either Los Angeles or New York on a handful of dates. To qualify, you must present a valid credit card and shadowy male companion at the time of booking. Should your lover not appear shadowy enough, you can swap him for a substitute at the nearest Tahitian embassy or perhaps, in New York at least, at the Jekyll & Hyde Club.
