Spyro Marco won Talentadong Pinoy Worldwide on Sunday, August 19, 2013, during the finals held at the Cuneta Astrodome.
The diabolo/Chinese yoyo champion bested 6 other Hall of Famers (Laserman, Sor, Larvae, Rina Forbes, Nocturnal Dance Company, Haina)and was declared the “Ultimate Talentado” for his diabolo/Chinese yoyo act.
50% of the score came from the judges, while the other 50% came from the text votes. He obviously got the most number of text votes as he was also awarded with the Texter’s Choice award.
Judges who were (half) responsible for Spyro Marco’s win were Judy Ann Santos, Derek Ramsay, Edu Manzano, Joey de Leon, Direk Joey Reyes, and Sharon Cuneta.
As the winner, Marco Betito (his real name) got P1 million in cash and a 3-bedroom house and lot in Tagaytay courtesy of RCD Royal Homes.
The Battle Royale is the last episode of Talentadong Pinoy after 5 years of airing.
