Actress Jodi Sta. Maria became the newest contestant to win the P1 million jackpot prize in ABS-CBN’s top-rating game show “Minute to Win It: Last Man Standing” after completing her Ultimate Challenge last Monday (Sept 19).
“I just thought I needed to finish the game. I needed to give what was required of me. I didn’t mind the audience. I went to ‘Minute to Win It’ to play, enjoy, and experience the game. The expectation of winning was not with me,” shared Jodi.
Jodi remained calm and focused while doing her Ultimate Challenge “Mouth to Mouth,” which tested her skill and quickness in pulling out a paper bill in between empty bottles without toppling them.
She took home a total cash prize of P1.07 million after defeating comedian Pooh in the Head-to-Head Challenge. Jodi said she will be donating her cash prize to charities and foundations she has long supported.
“Minute to Win It” continues to draw viewers nationwide and win in the ratings game, according to data from Kantar Media. Its episode last Monday recorded a national TV rating of 22.6%, compared to its rival program on GMA, “Wowowin,” which only garnered 17.6%.
