Delicious Pop Culture

MANILA, Philippines --- Jollibee, considered as the leading fastfood chain with 171 Drive-Thru stores nationwide has undeniably become a staple of Pinoy Pop Culture. From OP art to fun videos on YouTube, Filipinos all over the world easily recognize the smiling bee with the big eyes as something their own.

Well, LEN Plus has organized one of their most ambitious events for the Filipino mega-brand which will take 10 teams in an ultimate driving and roadtrip adventure as it partners with Ford Group Philippines for the Jollibee Drive-Thru Cross-Country Challenge.

These 10 teams competing consist of mix artistas, models, athletes and regular Jollibee enthusiasts mainly consisting of Niño Duran and Anthony Gaas (Team 1), Ulysses Ang and Neil Pagualayan (Team 2), Robert Real and Quinito Villarosa (Team 3), Francis Lim and Joaquin Puyat (Team 4), Michelle Estuar and Prince Baltazar (Team 5), Andre Co and Cerah Hernandez (Team 6), Paul Jake Castillo and Jan Señerpida (Team 7), JM Oloris and Irene Oloris (Team 8), Jon Hall and Maria Persson (Team 9), and Charlie Sutcliffe and Angelo Cacciatore (Team 10) will be pitted against each other as they are challenged to drive across the regions of Metro Manila, North and South Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao and fulfill the tasks at 20 Jollibee Drive-Thru pit stops and several tourist destinations. The participants will also be given the opportunity to gain extra points and increase their chances of winning by navigating their way to as many Jollibee drive-thru non-pit stop joints.

At the end of the whole Cross-Country Challenge, the winning team that will accumulate the biggest number of points will take home P1 million (Net of taxes) and two brand new 1.4L Ford Fiesta at Hatchbacks.

The winning team will go down in Pop Culture history, at least for a while
