After more than a year on ABS-CBN Prime Tanghali, hit game show Minute to Win It will finally bid goodbye. The game show hosted by Luis Manzano will air its final episode on February 21.
Minute to Win It premiered on January 14, 2013. The game show has contestants taking part in a series of 60-second challenges using objects commonly available around the house and the Philippine franchise particularly had aired four formats including the original, junior, head to head challenge and family and team challenge.
According to the show's producer Rose Casala, Minute to Win It is supposed to air for only 11 weeks. However, it has been extended for more than a year. She's also hoping that the show will return after its hiatus.
On Twitter, host Luis Manzano posted a message of gratitude to all the fans which made the show a success.
"Today is the last taping day of #Minute2winitPH! :) wow, more than a year and the most successful franchise of the show! :) thank you guys!" Luis said.
For its last two episodes which will air on February 20 and 21, Angel Locsin will be the guest player. The actress recently admitted that she and Luis are setting things straight and are now exclusively dating.
Before the show goes off the air, the PHP 1,000,000 cash prize has been won for the first time by the chefs tandem of Tristan Encarnacion and Niño Logarta.
Minute to Win It will be replaced by the singing game show The Singing Bee hosted by Roderick Paulate and Amy Perez. Previously airing on Saturdays after It's Showtime, the show will now be a daily habit starting February 24.
