Speaking about his win, Ayan Ali, Ultimate Winner, said, “I am really thrilled to win the debut season of KFC PLAYGROUND. My stay in the arcade was nothing less than a roller-coaster ride where I went through various ups and downs and felt a myriad of emotions ranging from excitement, fun, camaraderie and more. Unlike most, I joined the show half way through, single-handedly supported my team and pulled Dare Dragons’ score while also winning hearts of my fellow contestants and viewers alike.”
Talking about his winning team, Tanmay Singh (better known as Scout), Mentor- OP Unicorns team, said, “When I was approached for PLAYGROUND, it was hard for me to envisage the structure and flow of this unique concept. But when we started engaging I realized the potential and the seriousness of this format. My brief to the team was to maintain the highest cumulative score from the very beginning and that’s what worked for us. My all-rounder team with its sheer perseverance and never say die attitude won a neck-to-neck match against AA Werewolves. A shout out to the Unicorns for their dedication, discipline and for putting ’WE’ before ‘ME’. I hope there is a next season and we are a part of it.”
