What was Bean's consideration in this alleged contract?
Hall sponsored a boat race in which the first prize was advertised as 1 14-foot boat trailer and 20-horsepower motor. After verifying with Hall that the prises advertised were correct, Bean entered the race and won. When he went to collect the prizes, he was told that there had been a mistake and was offered a 6 horsepower motor as first price. Bean sued, alleging that he had a contract for the prizes offered. Does Bean get to have the 20-horsepower boat? Explain.
