    What would you do for tickets to see the Phillies in the World Series?

    Some people offer up sex and others stand in the cold wearing only a bathing suit and fake mustache writing rap songs.

    The latter is what six people did as they competed in The Ellen Show's Twitter Challenge Tuesday night.

    Reps from the comedian's talk show descended on Villanova University as they put Phillies fans to the test for the ultimate prize -- tickets to Game 4 of the World Series.

    But before lyrics were scribed and mustaches were drawn, the ball got rolling on Ellen's Twitter feed.

    The Ellen Show visited Villanova to hold a Twitter Challenge. The prize: Tickets to Game 4 of the World Series.

    "Hey Philly, are you ready? For what, you ask? I’ll tell you tomorrow, better keep your eyes and ears open…and follow my tweets," she wrote Monday.

    The host and her team back in L.A. trickled out clues throughout the day telling fans where their cameras would be -- Villanova -- and what they would need to do -- strip down and rap.

    "If you go to Villanova wear your running shoes & await my instructions," Ellen wrote about an hour before show time.

    Once filming began, the host sent out another tweet with instructions on how to compete in the challenge -- sending hundreds of fans scattering:

    "Find Aaron @ the Connelly Center. 1st 12 people to show up wearing only a fake mustache & bathing suit get 2 compete for World Series tix."

    Ellen and her correspondent Aaron chose six who fit the bill and promptly gave the group their next challenge: developing a 30 second rap about why they deserve to go to the game in only 15 minutes.

    In the end, six were knocked down to three with Nova grad Colleen Lennon being named the winner.

    "I was in it to win it," Lennon said. "But I didn’t think I was going to with all these kids…they did a great job."

    Lennon plans on taking her boyfriend -- who's an avid Yankee fan --  to the game.

    As for the fans who didn't win, they made out pretty good too each scoring iPods, Blackberries, book readers and other electronics.

    You can catch all of the Phandemonium on The Ellen Show Wednesday at 3 p.m. on NBC10.
