Anne Curtis extends her sincerest thanks after winning the "Showtime" showdown.

MANILA, Philippines - Anne Curtis was declared champion in the week-long showdown of "Showtime" hosts, which marked the second anniversary of the ABS-CBN talent show.

Special anniversary hurados (judges) Dr. Manny Calayan, Cathy Garcia-Molina, Joel Cruz, Liz Uy and Dr. Vicki Belo awarded Curtis a perfect 10 after she wowed them with her pole dancing and air dancing skills last Wednesday.

Thrilled with her victory, Curtis said on Saturday, "Jed Madela, maraming salamat sa paghawak ng mic ko. We did it!"

"Thank you so much. Worth it na worth it ang mga pasa ko," she added, referring to the bruises she got from her 4-day training on pole dancing and air dancing.

Curtis received a cash prize of P100,000 which, she said, will be donated to UNICEF Philippines.

"Marami pong mga batang nangangailangan. Andaming nagsa-suffer [from] acute malnutrition. Mapupunta ang lahat ng ito sa kanila na nangangailangan po, so thank you so much," she said.

Meanwhile, Vice Ganda and Billy Crawford were tied at second place with an average score of 9.8.

They received a cash prize of P50,000.
