Contest #413: Forget Nancy and Tonya; they've been beaten to death. Dan Jansen? Falls down on the job too much. And Oksana Baiul can't speak a word of English except for "thank," "you," and "Snickers." Nope, the Winter Olympic hero that we think will rocket into the endorsement heavens has the most unforgettable name of the Winter Games-Picabo Street. She's got the looks, she's got the attitude-she's got Peek-a-boo! If the undergarment industry didn't have a marquee name before, it does now. T.N.T.ers: come up with the next advertising campaign to feature Picabo Street.

And now for the results of Contest #409: we asked you to vote for the next ad campaign featuring former U.S. Vice President Dan Quayle and you elected:

First Prize: Mr. Quayle hooks up with U.S. figure skater Nancy Kerrigan in spots for Campbell's Soup. Both are seen enjoying bowls of alphabet soup, and Mr. Quayle remarks, "You don't have to worry about spelling with these letters. You just eat 'em!" Kris Arnold, account exec, ProServ, Arlington, Va.

Second Prize: Mr. Quayle, sitting on a park bench outside the White House, for Dole bananas. "I'm best known for having been `second banana' around here. Now let me tell you about the country's top banana, Dole! Dole bananas are the best you can buy. But mark my words-this is the only `Dole' I'll ever be `second banana' to!" Norris Bohn, creative director, Bohn Adventures, Winston-Salem, N.C.

Third Prize: Mr. Quayle pitches Pez candies and is shown eating them from the new Dan Quayle dispenser. Unfortunately, Mr. Quayle is getting the brand name wrong: "Mmmm, there's nothing like Prez candies, and with the new `Dan Quayle' dispenser, you can rest assured that the mouth will never stay closed for long." David Gorczynski, associate manager, France Telecom North America, New York.
