After diligently studying the One hundred sixty-seven (167) entries to our Fun Prediction Contest, I have initially arrived at two (2) possible winning entries. Both individuals were able to guess four (4) of the Top 5 correctly. The first difference that gave one the edge over the other is that Kyle missed out on the 3rd-ranked Bb. Pilipinas Intercontinental crown, while regular poster Carlo placed the wrong name for the 2nd-ranked Bb. Pilipinas International title. Another advantage of the former is that he submitted his entry at 14:03HRS on March 28 (almost a full ten hours before the deadline) while the latter e-mailed his at around 20:45HRS on March 29 (nearly 24 hours after the deadline).
So our winner (a homegrown entry for a change) is Kyle Tracerda (I’m not sure if it is his real name or not, but will find out soon enough) of Davao City. His entry is posted below. Kudos as well to Carlo who came so close. I would have declared a tie if only he hadn’t missed the cut-off date and time (which was met by 92% of the entries).
I have already exchanged emails with Kyle about his win and he volunteered to shoulder the shipping expenses of the prize package to his home province (to be deducted from the cash prize). However, I insisted that I take care of everything since we have a trusted courier service at work.
Till our next Fun Prediction Contest (which might be Miss World Philippines 2014). :-D
