After numerous grueling challenges, Jommy Teotico bested 11 other bets to win ABS-CBN’s “Pinoy Fear Factor: Argentina, South America” Friday, February 20.

The 24-year-old model won a cool P2 million, a house and lot and the title "El Ultimo Participante" after defeating Janna Dominguez in the show's "Car Roll Over" challenge.

In the final challenge, both contestants were required to drive a car over a ramp that would explode, flipping the car over at least once. The participante that brought his car farthest from the ramp wins the contest.

In the end, Teotico's driving expertise gave him the edge in the final challenge as his car flipped and settled more than 22 meters away from the ramp compared to Dominguez's record of 17 meters and 10 centimeters.

Teotico earned the moniker "Scorpion King" after eating 20 scorpions in one of the PFF challenges. He also earned the respect and admiration of other contestants after setting a Fear Factor world record in the Car Re-Entry stunt.
