Pizza Hut's search for Canada's greatest Wingman has wrapped up with a couple of Edmontonians proving that when it comes to the art of winging it - the West has what it takes!

Derek Scott, 26, nominated by his partner in crime Steven Diachuk, 29, took a bite out of the competition (of more than 200 Canadian hopefuls) to capture Pizza Hut's coveted Ultimate WingStreet Wingman crown. His secret? Proving that he is willing to do just about anything to make sure his buddy has a good time - the ultimate test of a great wingman.

From spontaneous road trips across the prairies to friendly pranks, the duo have been close friends for more than 10 years. Now, thanks to Pizza Hut, and its award winning line-up of authentic, intensely flavoured chicken wings, they've won the chance to strut their stuff on the ultimate all-expenses-paid road trip to Las Vegas.

"I've been a Pizza Hut fan my whole life," says Diachuk. "My friends and I order WingStreet wings all the time and the second I heard about this contest I knew I had to sign Derek up. He and I have been through so much together, this was the ultimate way to reward him for all the years of being a great wingman."

The Wingman's favourite flavour? "Honey BBQ," confirms Scott, while Diachuk's preferred wing of choice is Pizza Hut WingStreet's "Buffalo Burnin' Hot." To learn more about all eight mouth-watering flavours and order up a batch, visit pizzahut.ca.

Pizza Hut is sending the pair on a premium Vegas getaway (valued at $10,000) including: first class airfare, a four night stay at a luxury hotel and $4,000 in cash and gift cards - everything they need to hit up Vegas in style. The total prize value is $10,000 plus bragging rights.

The contest, kicked off last Fall to celebrate the launch of WingStreet (Pizza Hut's award winning line-up of authentic, pub-quality chicken wings) in Canada. With three ways to wing it - bone in, bone out and traditional, and eight flavours to choose from - it's no wonder that in just four months, Pizza Hut's wings are fast becoming the best choice for wings across Canada.
