Wild guess: Four-times the fame of the 15-minutes that most people enjoy in their tiny lives. LOL... If I had welding experience, I'd be in there like a maggot on a carcass. Welding is the key.

I've been welding for 32 years & I'm only 44 years old LOL! I been a mechanic of Shipfitter most all my live . But I do Just about everything as I have been a Stock car racer for about 20 years. I built all my own racing engines, did all the body work & paint, straightened my race car frame with a tree & my truck when it got bent,LOL, built the roll cage. I did this not only for me but to support my racing I did it for others. I have built more then 100 race cars. As well as a bunch of other strange stuff.

Howabout F.E.A.R. Inc., or 'FEAR Incorporated', kinda gives a gangster/Goodfellas kind of charm and double entendre heheh

To answer the first question; You win the best vacation of your life, provided you love to tinker with junk and build fun things with it. There are no cash prizes, but you get paid enough to make sure that you eat well, and have a little to enjoy in your small amount of free time. You also win a lifetime of great memories and meet some very intresting new friends. It's too bad there are not more television programs which do so much to engage the imagination of the audience.
