The final round included two challenges.

Challenge 1 “More facts about me”: The six contestants shared more information about themselves based on a given keyword. After that, the judges asked more questions of ‘this or that’ to which the contestant answered by stating their choices along with brief justifications. This challenge required the candidates to show spontaneity in their presentation in English as well as quick reflexes in answering questions.
