The event, which took place at Mambo Beach Club, came to a conclusion after a fierce six-week competition organised by SPH Radio’s HOT FM91.3.
The contest to find HOT FM91.3’s Singapore Hottest BFF was developed to encourage best friends to understand each other better. Every week, besties are thrown with different types of challenges, be it on-air, online or on-ground which allow them to know each other's strengths and weaknesses and thus, taking their friendship to a different level of understanding. Please find attached the challenges that BFFs have done.
Scores were tabulated including their friends' and fans' support to follow them on various social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter and Vine.
The winning besties, Chris and Nash, said:"This experience was both fun and meaningful and we are so glad to have been a part of it! Thank you for giving us the great experience just for being best friends – a gift in itself."
Mr Jamie R Meldrum, Senior Programme Director, said: "Reality Radio is here to stay, and we're all looking forward to doing it again with more fun, more drama, and even bigger prizes!"
The three besties were selected for their fun, dynamic personalities from about 50 video entries received in late March.
Always breaking the monotonies of radio formatting, HOT FM91.3, Singapore’s number one hit music station, continues to strive to bring creativity and zest in Singapore’s radio industry.
