WINNERS are grinners and Warrnambool’s Katie Monigatti has $14,000 reasons to smile.
Ms Monigatti appeared on the channel 7 game show The Chase on Tuesday night and shared in $56,000 with three other contestants.
Ms Monigatti walked away with $14,000 from the nationally televised show after putting her general knowledge to the test.
She said she didn’t expect to do as well as she had and she planned to put the money into some savings.
Ms Monigatti said the episode was filmed in November. “On the day I wasn’t too nervous,” she said.
“They had a really good production team which kept everyone cool, calm and collected.”
Ms Monigatti said she applied for the show in August and auditioned for it in September. She said filming of the show was from 7am till 12 noon and the experience was fast-paced. “It was all go, go go,” she said. “It is like what you see on TV.”
