An unusual reason Joanna gave when Guido Kaczka asked him why he made the decision to sign up the 8 steps (El Trece, Monday to Friday at 9.15pm).

When asked by the driver, the participants usually answer that they are trying to earn money to travel, pay off debts, collaborate with their family, the need to cover expensive medical treatments… Or they simply signed up because a relative convinced them to do it.

However, Joanna’s response was concrete: he wants to show his mother “that I’m not that smart”.

Apparently, when they watched the show together, her mom pointed out over and over that she had a very good chance of making it, something Joanna didn’t see possible. And to prove it, he signed up.
