3. Producer and/or Jarvis Christian College reserve the right to render ineligible, disqualify, and/or remove from the Program any person they determine, in the sole discretion of either, is sufficiently connected to the Program or any Program Entities, such that his or her participation in the Program could create impropriety, the appearance of impropriety, and/or in any way prejudice Program competition fairness. Conversely, Producer and/or Jarvis Christian College reserves the right to allow any person who may have a connection with the Program or Program Entities to remain participating in the Program if, in Producer’s and/or Jarvis Christian College’s sole discretion, either determines that such person’s involvement in the Program does not and will not affect the integrity and fairness of the Program or Competition.
