New record!! 81 hours 32 minutes!!
George Lee, the longest-standing contestant in the Subaru Challenge 2008, wins home the grand prize of a brand new Subaru Impreza WRX 2.5L Manual worth $80,000!! George, aged 29, is an army captain and triathlete. His 3rd try, he beat 399 contestants to win the car.
The first runner up was Ms Mary Tan (SMRT senior exec and mother of 2) aged 35. She won S$2,000 SPC vouchers for fuel and service station purchases. This is her second attempt.
The sweet-looking Mary caught my attention when I saw her chatting with her sons on Day 2. I didn't expect her to hold on for long but she proves otherwise. She looks frail but she has formidable willpower. Mummy power!!
A close call. By nighttime on Tuesday, only Mary and George remained. Mary lost her concentration and flexed her fingers, causing her to 'hand' the grand prize to George. Winner was announced before midnight.
All the regional contestants were out of the challenge by the 74th hour.
I guess the first things these contestants would do are a good wash and a good sleep. :)
Congrats to all the contestants. You are all winners!
