Local Man Sings His Way To Second Place As All Star Roomie

Two years ago the DC area came out on top of the contest for Roommate of the Year, but this time we had to settle for runner-up status. Even though Jake Tomko of Manassas sang his way through life with his roommates it wasn't enough to impress the voting population, so instead of the $10K grand prize he takes home a tidy $500 for his troubles. But still watching his video entry provides a few minutes of fun entertainment. Click through to see how he deftly manages alarm clock duty, post-date consolations, and mourning a dead goldfish while also carrying a tune.
