• MedStudent91, from New Zealand wins the Sunday Million and a first prize of $152,454.
MedStudent91 graduated with honours in the Sunday Million this weekend, sealing a first prize of $152,000 despite several offers of a deal with five and four left. As Kristin Bihr reported for the Blog, when these offers were declined it became a simple case of who would blink first as MedStudent91, presumably wide-eyed, looked on.
