MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – GABRIELA, the erstwhile Philippine women’s advocacy group can’t take it any longer and finally broke its silence over the hit game show on ABS-CBN, “Minute To Win It, Last Man Standing.”
The show is based on the original American game show of the same title. Contestants take part in a series of 60-second challenges that use objects that are commonly available around the house. Those who complete ten challenges would win the top prize of the show, ₱1,000,000.
In a statement issued today, GABRIELA said the show’s title is extremely discriminatory against women just because of its title which all but ignores women.
Asked what show title should be used for the game show, a spokesperson for GABRIELA said her group will be happy with “Minute To Win It: Last Person Standing.”
Moral of the story: always be politically correct.
