Martin won again the 8 steps (El Trece, Mon-Fri 9:30pm) and it piled up 9 million pesos in prize.
This way he was very close to setting a record in the Q&A program hosted by Guido Kaczka.
Should you still prevail and add another three million, the 53-year-old doctor would be the contest’s first winner.
Right now the record is held by Alexis Nubile, the 23-year-old who won 10 million pesos in January 2023.
Behind him now is Martin. And then come the former priest Ignacio and Pablo Davita, who have managed to accumulate 8 million pesos.
It is worth noting that the program started with a prize of one million, then went on to deliver two million and in mid-April of this year increased the prize for the winner to three million.
On Monday’s broadcast, Martín faced Sandra in the final. I got seven correct answers (with only one wrong) and he was established victor again. Very excited, he celebrated -again- with his wife and daughter.
The doctor made it, he’s got it, thunderous applause!” Kaczka exclaimed.
“It’s incredible! My daughter told me ‘go ahead, go ahead’, she called me last night and insisted on me,” revealed the doctor, a specialist in paediatrics, who works at the Evita Pueblo de Berazategui hospital and in a rehabilitation center.
Then, the driver asked him if he would come back for the record: “Martín, who made the difference in the final… Alexis was the first winner in number of millions, and also in consecutive games. He won 10 million. Look, you won 9 million. Tomorrow (for today, Tuesday) you can win 12 and be the first winner in millions, no one has. Will you come back to play?”
And the doctor, without hesitation, replied: “Yes, you better go back.”
The day of his first participation in the program, Martín, questioned by the driver, revealed it He planned to use the three million prize to renovate his home.
