Following the successful previous contest (with cash prizes up to RM 5ka piece, I always love cash prizes!), Mister Potato is at it again. Only this time it is even bigger, with grand prize being a gold bar worth RM 88,888!

GOLD BAR! I’ve heard about these mystical thing when I was young, we called it “Kim Tiau” in Hokkien. Those old TV series with the rich tycoons playing with gold bars sitting behind their desk, it was so bling, so surreal.

And now you’re telling me there’s a chance I can win one of these babies? (not the actual picture of the prize)

I think I’d use it as a door stop *evil grin*

If I win the gold bar, it doesn’t mean there’s nothing left for you, my dear readers. πŸ˜€

There’re 3 x RM 8,888 first prize, and another 100 x RM 888 consolation prize winners. These are all cold hard cash, and with over 100 winners it’ll be quite unlucky if you actually don’t win.

The contest:

  • Get the unique SMS code from the 75 or 160 gram Mister Potato contest edition pack.
  • Guess the combined weight (in KG) of Mister Potato, Ortega, the three Mariachis (Unos, Dos, Tres), and the sack of 100Β potatoes. Send in via SMS with unique short code)
  • Submit as many entries as you like, but each short code is only valid for 1 entry
  • for more details go to

Sherlock Homes’ deductive skills is utmost important here. There are clues on the website as to how much these characters weigh in. Let me give you some tips (I shall not share all for I want the gold bar!)

  • Mister Potato himself – 33 pounds heavier than a baby elephant (at 105kg), with 2.2 lbs = 1 KG. A simple calculation should put his weight at 120 kg or so.
  • Ortega – profile puts him at “about” 132 lbs but definitely below 134 lbs. That’s between 60-65 kg.
  • Tres – 40 kg (from the clue given)
  • Dos – Dos + Mister Potato = 170 kg, so that should put him at around 50kg
  • Uno Β – with the Mariachis averaging 48 kg, Uno should work out to be around 54 kg
  • sack of 100 potatoes – not gonna give you this one, work it out yourself!

Now excuse me while I go get some Mister Potato, the contest runs from 1st Jan till 31st March 2010, so hurry!

  48. From Switzerland With Love

    Today also not announce yet.. Hope it will announce before May, coz 3May is my birthday :p

  49. Yeah I was wondering when are they going to announce the result?

  50. Izwan Adzman

    I have a friend working at MDD (Which is company running for this contest) and she say basically the winner will be announced 1 month after the closing date. So, i try push her to get an answers, then she only say keep waiting until end of this month.

  51. yeahh, everyone is waiting!

  52. The results are out. I think this is a pure bull shit and marketing gimmick…anyone won?

  53. I didn’t win gahh

  54. Look at the names listed, they looked fake and I can’t believe myself of not winning at least a consolation prize for the tie breaker…fcuk mister potato…it’s a scam for sure!

  55. I think I have to agree with you. It’s a scam and what a joke all of us believe that we can win…hahahaha..

    Anyway, I personally think pringles is away better than mister potato.

    What you guys think?

  56. Izwan Adzman

    True, this is their marketing strategy… Their first priority only to make profit besides that making the contest only to attract customer to purchase MP Chips. Actually Pringles is a way better than MP Chips.

  57. Izwan Adzman

    BTW, I spotted Tunku Badlishah in this thread winning Rm888

  58. Desperado

    Now the result is out. Who win in this contest, share with us what is your guess for the 100 potatoes. So this way we can tell what is the real weight of it.

    Me first, my guess (I win consolation) is 14KG.
    Next please.

  59. hahah don’t be such cynics though. I think the contest was a bit too easy and hence lotsa ppl got the 345kg answer right.

  60. Ya. I’m in the list too..consolation prize ler..still okay ler..cover up all my invest cost…hehehee.

  61. steven,
