Minute to Win It on ABS-CBN
Rosalinda L. Orosa (The Philippine Star) - January 14, 2013 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines - You don’t need special talents or extraordinary intelligence but only a certain level of skill to win P1M on ABS-CBN’s new game show Minute to Win It that will begin today at 11 a.m.

The show will give a whole new meaning to the adage “time is gold” where no effort is too small and every fraction of a second counts. It also encourages players to work hard and practice at home using everyday materials such as pencils, eggs, pingpong balls and cards for a shot to change their lives.

Studio players only need to complete 10 challenges, each under one minute, to bring home the whopping P1M cash prize.

Host Luis Manzano is excited for his new role in the show to encourage players who are under a lot of pressure.

“The biggest challenge is backing up the player. I’ll stand by the player as much as possible. Sometimes players lose the heart to continue so I have to look for ways to build up their confidence to make them get on with the game and earn more money,” he said.

He also added, “In Deal or No Deal, I try to be neutral between the Banker and the player. In Pilipinas Got Talent, I serve as the contestant’s kabarkada. In Minute to Win It, I’m a cheerer.”

Playing in the game show’s pilot episode is Ai-Ai delas Alas. Some of the games she will have to complete include running a piece of thread through the eyes of 10 needles using one hand and knocking over four soda cans using a yo-yo strapped to the back of her waist. Will Ai-Ai bring home P1M?

Also trying out the show’s nerve-wracking yet simple games during the pilot week are Cristine Reyes, Rico J. Puno, Maja Salvador, Zanjoe Marudo, K Brosas and Shamcey Supsup.
