Among the 8 grand finalists, it's UST's Jeff Acala, a Comm. Arts student, and Ninna Bonsol, a student of Legal Management, who got the highest correct words: 7 out of 10 "henyo" words within the given time period of 3 minutes.

Jeff and Nina's 7 correct words were: "Butong Pakwan", "Sausage", "Libya", "Laing", "Austria", "Marinduque" and "Peanut". They're the only ones who correctly guessed "Peanut" and the fastest to get 1 correct word, at only 20 seconds when they got "Butong Pakwan" which the other finalists found too difficult.

The other 3 words that the students from UST failed to guess were: "Aurora Boulevard", "Bali" and "Puto Bumbong".

No one was able to guess "Aurora Boulevard". The students from the National College of Business and Arts (NCBA), who finished in 2nd place with 5 out of 10, were the only contestants who got the word "Puto Bumbong", while Polytechnic University of the Philippines (PUP) was the sole team who guessed "Bali", their only correct word out of 10.

It was just funny that the finalist from the University of the East (UE) thought that Bali, a famous Indonesian province and island, is located in the Philippines, somewhere in the Visayas. The Thomasian student also got confused over Kuala Lumpur as a place in Indonesia (and not in Malaysia) while they were guessing "Bali".

As grand winners, Jeff and Ninna won P400,000 cash, two MacBook Pro laptops and a Pinoy Henyo trophy.
