Red FM announcers weigh in on ‘Watchu Want Now’, the easiest competition on the airwaves.
Red FM’s Watchu Want Now competition breaks it down to one easy question - money or the box! The cue to call happens five times a day. When you hear the announcers give the cue, call 03-7728 1049 and answer one simple trivia question. Get the answer correct and you can pick either the cash or
the secret gift in the box.
What’s in the box is a guaranteed surprise; it could be a holiday package, a spa session or a high tech new gadget. So, which would you pick if given the choice? Four Red FM announcers were posed this question and here are their answers.
Jeremy from The Red Rave (Mondays to Fridays, 10am to 2pm)
“Always pick the box! If the money is not something that will make you stop and go “Whoa!” then pick the box. With the box, you can walk away with something really cool! Everybody can win money but not everybody can get what’s in the box. Because even if the box contains a pair of socks from JJ, you will have a great story to tell. Here’s a tip: Brush up on your general knowledge as it helps with the first part of the competition.”
Adam from The Red Rush (Mondays to Fridays, 5pm to 8pm)
“If it’s lower than RM250, go for the box. I think it’s worth the risk to opt for the box. Personally, if it’s a higher amount I’ll probably go for the cash. Depending on the amount, I would pay my bills or buy myself a couple of video games especially with GTA 5 coming out soon or maybe the new Spurs away kit.”
Azura from The Red Fix (Mondays to Fridays, 8pm to 12am)
“I say choose the box because you got to live life on the edge. If you are really young, take the money because you need it. But if you are working, pick the box. One of the contestants during our show won herself an iPad mini by choosing the box . If I had to take the money, I’d treat myself to all the goodies that can be bought at Sephora.”
Terry from The Red Fix (Mondays to Fridays, 8pm to 12am)
“I always encourage the winners on-air to take the money to be safe but if it was me I’d choose the box. The thought of losing out on an iPad mini or a nice holiday would just be too much to handle. I would have to take the box. I’d just have to. The temptation would be too great. Yes, I’m weak that way, don’t judge me. I have issues.”
