In 5 minutes..... - PH

PhotoHunt theme : Ruin(ed)

What can you do in 5 minutes?

The contestants of the Subaru Challenge were allowed only 5-minute breaks every 6 hours.

They rushed for the toilets......


Gobbled their meals, drank, got a massage....

A quick workout before resuming their positions.


Will their health be ruined??

  2. I've been following this contest through your blog. I didn't know they could take breaks. LOL! I was actually wondering about this the other night. Now I know :)

  5. Mrs G,
    Of course they could take breaks. Only 5 minutes every 6 hours. 4 breaks a day. :(

    It's a mad rush whenever it's break time.

  6. keropok man,
    Hey, how's your overseas trip? Glad you're back.

    Only a few days but it's enough to do some damage. I would probably not last an hour.

  8. i am laughing while looking at these photos. i can imagine how excited they were before the clock clicks six hours!

  9. Gran,
    Yeah... every 6 hours, and the breaks are so short!

  10. the dong,
    Oh yes!

    There were 10 teams and each team has to wait for their turn so as not to crowd the toilets. It takes almost an hour to complete the whole lot.

    So you can imagine how excruciating the wait was for the last team. :P

  11. within 5 minutes, a man could enter into a tigers' den and be killed, so sorry, ECL, I feel so traumatised by the poor man being killed in our zoo.

    coming back to your topic, i believe there might be some health risks,the question is whether the participants think its worthwhile to trade their endurance limit with their body physical limit.

  12. singaporeshortstories,
    Poor guy. I read about it too.

    Some people just don't know the risks and their limits. Is the prize all that they see?

  14. Wah!! Woman!! You went everyday for this Subaru event arh? *gulpz*

    No car......never mind for me! It's pure agony to withstand that!

  17. 5 minutes I can't even got the time to walk to the toilet let alone finish my business.

  18. ECL,
    I think I poo poo also need more than 5 mins! hahaha!

    But I think it's quite challenging..I like!:)

  19. It's sure is challenging! And the winner must be one happy Subaru winner:) I just hope his health wasn't that ruined!

    ReplyDelete
  20. the breaks are too short. i think i'll fail miserably in this challenge.

    ReplyDelete
  21. What a lot of sacrifice. You have a good eye for news!

    ReplyDelete
  22. What happens if a contestant comes down with a severe stomach ache halfway into the contest and needs to go to the toilet intermittently.Will the contestant be disqualified?

    ReplyDelete
  23. will their life be ruined? well, I think people would go to any extend when it comes to money and will even put health aside. it's funny though to see them rushing here and there and to get ready again for the challenge. If only they could give out a few Subaru's. they all deserve it, dont you think?

  24. exclusive shots are the best thing in the world whew i cant imagine being one of those people just the mere thought of a 5 minute comfort room break scares me hehehe :) I like my moments to be enjoyed peacefully hehehe :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. Aiyo! 5 minutes only! Where got enough time to do anything? He he.. good luck! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  26. Wow, 5 whole minutes? They could have taken a nap as well! lol

    But honestly, I don't think the car is worth my kidneys (figuratively speaking, of course). I got this lingering feeling that the contestants are there to prove a point, to themselves that is.

    ReplyDelete
  27. No don't think their health will be ruined for that few days. But if they do this long term, say over a month, then their health will definitely suffer. Me? I won't do this challenge for a car which loses its value as soon as we drive it! Maybe if the prize is 1 million USD or a large bungalow or something more worthwhile, then maybe...

  28. They acted fast in 5 minutes... Good job...

    ReplyDelete
  29. Only 5 minutes? I would never make it at all. Sheesh some times it takes me 5 minutes just to get the door open!

    Oh I am so lazy this weekend. I didn't do SWF and I am not doing PH either.

    Tammy sent me new pictures of the kids and I posted them and decided to a wee break.

    Lazy, lazy lazy...and I am loving it.

    A long hot shower, a facial, a long long nap and just blog hopping.

    You did great on the theme ECL.

    Happy weekend:-)))

  30. Ha ha ha ... OK, the answer is no and no.

    I wouldn't be able to do it in 5 minutes and I don't think that will ruin their health in the long run. Human body is one fine piece of work!

    5 minutes break? I can't even even finish logging onto the Internet, read a post from ECL, and drop a comment ... pfffttt.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Arhhh~~so this is how they did it. Of course their health would somehow affected.

  35. whether some day, this type of contest will degenerate into "foreign brides" as the prize...

    for the longest duration, the one remaining standing champion (uncle type) will be the one who placed the longest on the woman's....erm....nvm

    ReplyDelete
