The trio of Joaquin Adrien Ong, Jim Allyson Nevado and Precious Nevado scored 83 aggregate score highlighted by a lone mistake in the Difficult round. The Average and Difficult rounds were pivotal for the champions as they flexed their will past the other contestants.
The winning triumvirate of Ong and Nevado siblings were the only one to hurdle the 20-point-marker in the Average Round and managed to sustain their momentum in the payoff round.The Difficult Round is a show of pure brilliance as the champions committed a lone mistake in 10 questions, and padded the cushion toward the finish line.
