A Minneapolis woman is being paid $1,000 to watch 24 Hallmark Christmas movies in the space of 12 days.

Jasmine Stringer, an entrepreneur behind the companies JB Stringer and lifestyle brand Carpe Diem with Jasmine, was announced on Thursday as the winner of the contest run by CenturyLinkQuote.com.

The Century Link sales agency said it received a whopping 218,000 entries for the competition, but Hallmark superfan Stringer was the standout entry.

Stringer already hosts annual Hallmark movie night parties for her friends where they select the cheesiest Hallmark movie possible to watch, with the dress code strictly limited to pajamas.

Now she's getting paid to watch the most sickly sweet of Hallmark Christmas movies, featuring such excellently named classics as "A Royal Christmas," "The Christmas Consultant," and "Battle of the Bulbs."

She's being joined in her endeavor by her friend Sharon, with the two sharing their thoughts on the movies as they make their way through the list.

In fact, as they're such fans of Hallmark movies, they watched five over the weekend and only two of them were on the list selected for the contest – so they're actually watching more than they need to.

Here are the 24 movies she'll be getting through this year.

  1. Write Before Christmas
  2. Christmas at Graceland: Home for the Holidays
  3. Merry & Bright
  4. A Christmas Duet
  5. A Christmas Love Story
  6. Christmas Under Wraps
  7. A Royal Christmas
  8. Christmas in Rome
  9. Christmas Town
  10. A Family Christmas Gift
  11. Jingle & Bell’s Christmas Story
  12. The Christmas Consultant
  13. Christmas at Dollywood
  14. Holiday Date
  15. Battle of the Bulbs
  16. Rocky Mountain Christmas
  17. Every Christmas has a Story
  18. A Heavenly Christmas
  19. Two Turtle Doves
  20. Christmas in Evergreen: Tidings of Joy
  21. A Gift to Remember
  22. A Gift to Remember 2
  23. Holiday Hearts
  24. Switched for Christmas
