One Big Family
The 11 winners will compete against the “Lucky 13” who were selected earlier in the KNN 6th Regular Season. This is the first time in KNN that another batch of winners joined in the competition in the regular season at much later date. This makes the finalists in the Season 6 ballooned to 24 small entrepreneurs.
The 11 winners had attended the business plan seminar on September 3 while the “Lucky 13” were selected in June this year after attending the first business plan seminar this season.
The “Lucky 13” are: Manuel Gerald Abella, Bonifacio Arellano, Brenda Batislaong, Linda Berdon, Hisel Camacho, Loreta Colina, Emmy Daligdig, Consolacion Elma, Suzette Mayol, Joel Quijano, Maila Tuazon, Teresista Ursal, and Jonathan Villahermosa.
No more eviction!
They will face a panel interview tomorrow, October 16, 2011 for the final evaluation who among them shall receive an additional P7,000 and P2,000 for the top 10 and the last three respectively. The good news–the last three will no longer be evicted but have to join in the competition during the regular season.
This means, the 24 winners and finalists shall be broken with different seed capital from KNN, as follows: P15,000 (10), P10,000 (10), P5,000 (4).
