- Meg Imperial finished all the tasks on ‘Minute To Win It’ and won the grand prize of P1-M
- The actress did not expect to go home victorious as she only planned to enjoy the show
- Imperial was able to complete the last challenge with 31 seconds left to spare
Actress Meg Imperial was the first contestant who managed to successfully pass all challenges and take home the one million grand prize on the return season of ‘Minute To Win It’ on Friday, July 22.
The ultimate challenge called ‘office fling’ required Imperial to land three pieces of folded paper on a table several feet away with the help of a makeshift slingshot. With 31 seconds left, the 23-year old managed to complete the task which earned her the astounding amount of cash.
Surprised by her unexpected win, Imperial confessed that it did not occur to her that she would be the last woman standing as she only intended to make the most out of the experience. She further added that she was thankful for the opportunity.
The game began with six other opponents: Pokwang, Pooh, Iñigo Pascual, Kiko Matos, Myrtle Sarrosa, and Dawn Chang. The group went through a series of challenges which they had to complete before the others as the last person to perform the task would be eliminated.
At the beginning of the episode, the contestants had to stack plastic cups and place an index card in between. After doing so, they proceeded to pull the index cards with the pile of cups ending on top of each other. Imperial breezed through the second round when she was quickly able to hook penne noodles using an uncooked spaghetti strand.
The actress lagged behind a bit as she had trouble bouncing five marbles into small thimbles but still secured a spot in the quarterfinals. Imperial was left to fight against Matos when they both moved on to the semifinals following their success on tumbling down a stack of cartons with the use of candy and a surgical mask.
In the end, it was Imperial who won versus the indie actor with the score 2-0 and went ahead to the final round.
‘Minute To Win It’ is a game show that makes use of materials often found at home or in the office. Despite looking pretty easy, the challenges are tough as contestants are pressed to finish the tasks before 60 seconds run out. - Kami Media
