Sponsor Prizes

Participant Prize Time Spent in Game $/hr Video Timestamp
Yellow Shirt Guy $10,000 Cash 27:00 $370.37/hr 04:59
Pink Shirt Guy $10,000 Cash 27:00 $370.37/hr 05:10

Seems like the majority of people got out while sleeping. Interestingly enough, when looking at the $/hr, participant 45 seems to have done extremely well ($4,000/hr) considering that she only spent around 5 hours in the game. Contestant 1 also seems to have done well ($333.33/hr), beating contestant 5 and almost coming close to contestant 4.

In general, if you are not confidant about making it to the end or close to the end of a challenge, you would be better off getting eliminated as quickly as possible and claiming the $1,000 prize. Both participant 1 and 12 got the same prize ($1,000 Cash), but participant 12 spent 33:00 in the game and participant 1 only spent 03:00 in the game.
