Actress Meg Imperial became the first player to win the P1 million jackpot prize in ABS-CBN’s game show “Minute to Win It,” which returned on TV with its “Last Man Standing” edition last week.
Meg, who bagged the top prize on Friday (July 22), said, “I’m very thankful. I can’t believe that I won P1 million because I told myself I would just enjoy the game. It’s my first time to be invited here, and this happened.”
For her Ultimate Challenge, Meg had to complete under one minute the Office Fling challenge, which required her to use an elastic band attached to the legs of a chair to launch three folded sheets of paper on to a table.
Meg took home a total cash prize of P1,070,000 after defeating indie actor Kiko Matos in the Head-to-Head Challenge.
Meanwhile, the return of the country’s most exciting game show was warmly welcomed by viewers nationwide. According to data from Kantar Media, its pilot episode last Monday (July 18) registered a national TV rating of 16.8%, higher than that of GMA’s “Wowowin,” which only got 12.8%.
As the week continued, “Minute to Win It” remained as the ratings leader in its timeslot and continued to beat its rival program.
