In the video "Ryan & the SEVENTRIALSOFHABIT" it was revealed that Ryan had received an email from the email address seventrialsofhabitSPLATgmail.com. The morning of his death he sent a screen cap of the email to Vinnie, who read it on camera during that video. The transcript is as follows:
- "HELLO RABBIT,
- I OFFER YOU A PLACE IN A TOURNAMENT OF SORTS, A UNIQUE CONTEST, CREATED JUST FOR YOU AND ALL OF YOUR EXPENDABLE CO-CONSPIRATORS. THE ONLY THING I ASK OF YOU: BE COMPLETELY OPEN WITH ME. DO NOT FUCK WITH ME. DO NOT SEEK ANY OUTSIDE HELP.
- EARLIEST NIGHTMARE:
- HAIR COLOR:
- PREFERRED BLOOD TYPE:
- WHAT YOU CHERISH THE MOST:
- WHAT YOU HATE THE MOST:
- THERE WILL BE SEVEN TRIALS, IN THREE PRELIMINARY ROUNDS, CULMINATING IN A GRAND FINALE. SEE YOU THERE RABBITS.
In Ryan's email to Vinnie, he said that he had completed the questionnaire and returned it. The reply asked him to provide a pint of his own blood.
The reply to those who have applied was:
- WELCOME, RABBIT#---. AWAIT FURTHER INSTRUCTION.
A later unsigned tweet stated that no more applications would be accepted.
