VIDEO: Lakewood Resident a Semi-Finalist in Competition that Could Land him $1,000,000

A Lakewood resident could soon land himself a $1,000,000 prize – but he’s asking for your help.

Eli Sandhaus, a 22-year-old from Lakewood recently married, is a writer and video producer, as well as a public speaker. He entered into the competition looking for content creators, and awards the winner with $1,000,000 to help them promote their work.

Eli posted the following description on his page:

“I’m a 22-year-old Orthodox Jewish artist. I just played the lead role in an upcoming feature film called “The Raven of Baltimore City”, I published a book called “I Am You” by L.E. Santos, was the host of the podcast “Three Jews Walk Into A Podcast…”, and I spoke in front of like 1,500 people about having OCD. With $1,000,000 I would make feature films, publish books, and help people.”

2000 people entered the competition, and Eli is one of approximately 50 people who made it to the semi-finals. One of four finalists will be chosen as the winner by a panel of judges.

In order to move into the finals, Eli needs votes.

You can help him by voting on his page here before 8:59 PM on Monday.

  1. How many votes was it at when it was posted on TLS? At the time of my vote it was at around 900. At the time of this comment writing, it’s at 1.7k.
    MKY! Helping another yid out!

  2. Ah we meet again Mr. Ploni. While I normally respect people who speak like you, the genuine ones don’t hang out on internet comment pages. Ergo, you are a faker! Once again, your hypocracy is truly astounding! I’ve been seeing so much of your “holier than thou” in the TLS comments, it’s kind of gross.

    • Are you really certain that he is a faker???
      Didn’t it happen to you many times that someone accused you of some type of small wrong doing and in truth, if that guy truly knew the entire picture, he would run away from you in total shame, never to return or make any more comments?

    • How do you meet again if you yourself are not hanging out on the Internet? BTW. I only read TLS for the comments. Mostly ridiculous and good for a laugh. Plus my ad blocker works great. Site loads fast and I’m in and out in a couple of minutes, tops.

      • Oh sure I hang out on the internet. Though I don’t make a habit of demeaning people’s frumkeit in comments sections. Mr. Ploni on the other hand spend his days roasting people in the comments section. I think it’s time someone responded in kind and pointed him out as a nasty roidef.

        • Are you for real???
          He said the words, “lo zu darko shel Torah”.
          You call that a “Roidef”?!?!
          I call this an exaggeration.
          You need to calm down and relax. The world is not out to hurt you. No one is trying to hurt you. Please take it easy.

  3. Im glad we have a lot of people who think their mashgichim on the lakewood scoop…(maybe thats why they never landed on a real mashgiach job…)

  4. What school did he go to? Did he learn in Yeshiva? Where did he aquire the skills to become such a young entrepreneur? It seems that TLS is already promoting him, which is great, but where can we find his work? There should also be more promotion of his career path that led him to achieve this, so that others can follow in his footsteps.

  5. So Eli,
    Is that a yes on 5 minutes of serious torah learning a day for my vote? In the zechus of your learning, you should be matzliach in your aspirations.
    Waiting for your answer….
