Jeff Acala and Ninna Bonsol of the University of Sto. Tomas was declared the winner of Eat Bulaga’s Pinoy Henyo: Intercollegiate Edition during the grand finals that was held on June 23.
Jeff and Ninna got 7 out of 10 words even before their 3 minutes ran out.
They were the only ones who guessed that much words correctly. The second place, National College of Business and Arts, only got 5 correct words, while Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Pasig, placing third, only got 4.
Jeff and Ninna won Php 400,000 in cash and a MacBook Pro laptop for each of them. They were both calm throughout the game, which I guess was the reason for their win.
Jeff is a Communication Arts student whle Ninna is taking up Legal Management in UST. In a short speech after their win, they thanked God, their families, school and their respective organizations for supporting them from the start.
Other schools who made it to the finals were Laguna State Polytechnic University (3 pts.), University of the East (2 pts.), Polytechnic University of the Philippines (1 pt.) and Central Colleges of the Philippines (1 pt.).
After the Intercollegiate Edition, Eat Bulaga opens the fun competition once again to families in what is called the Pamilyang Pinoy Henyo.
Fun is truly non-stop in Eat Bulaga!. Aside from Pinoy Henyo, they recently launched the comeback of Mr. Pogi, personality search for young males which had been the stepping stone to some celebrities including Jericho Rosales.
