Host-actor Luis Manzano became emotional as he bade farewell to his hit game show, "Minute to Win It."

The show aired its final episode on Friday with Manzano's girlfriend, actress Angel Locsin, as its last guest player.

"Sa inyong lahat, thank you very much for being part of 'Minute To Win It.' Maraming salamat sa inyo," said Manzano, who eventually cried while thanking all the show's staff and director Johnny Manahan.

The host noted how "Minute to Win It," which ran for more than a year, "taught him so much."

"Mahirap din po ito dahil araw-araw niyo kaming pinatuloy sa inyong mga bahay kaya po umabot ang 'Minute To Win It' ng ganito katagal -- hindi po dahil sa akin, not because of the challenges, not because of the contestants but these very blessed people and talented people na nasa likod ng camera. Dahil sa inyo, more than a year ang 'Minute To Win It' dahil sa suportang ibinigay niyo sa aming lahat.

"This show has taught me so much. Isang panibagong chapter ito sa aking bilang isang game show host. At sa inyong lahat (staff) thank you, thank you Lord for this gift, my 'Minute To Win It' family," he said.
