Parul Shahi from Delhi is the winner of MTV Hero Honda Roadies-3

Takes on 2500 kilometers, tough tasks & beats 12 competitors to win the title

MUMABI: December 23nd 2005 - Parul Shahi, that's her name. The winner of MTV Hero Honda Roadies-3, India's biggest adventure reality show. And besides becoming the surprise package of a cult show that lends itself to countless discussion and debate, she's just walked away with a Hero Honda Karizma and booty of close to Rs. 5 lakhs. What's more, she's clawed tooth and nail to earn it. Having beaten thousands of candidates to get on the show, traversing more than 2500 kilometres from Jaisalmer to Leh, surviving all the edgy tasks along the route and successfully eliminating 12 of her competitors on the show, we say she more than deserves it!

Parul's first encounter MTV Roadies took place in 2004 when she auditioned for Roadies 2 and didn't quite make it to the final bunch. But the grit of the girl shone through when she not only came back in 2005 to make it past the auditions, but also walked away with the final prize!

Excited on her win, Parul Says, "I feel on top of the world on being the MTV Roadie. It wasn't easy but I knew that my grit and determination would see me through. Having won the title in my second try, I'd like to tell everyone that it's the 'never-say-die' attitude that takes you through some of the biggest challenges in life."

This petite Delhi-ite, a fan of Angelina Jolie's character in Tomb Raider, says it was her determination and overall resilience that made her hang on till the very end. Of course, the fact that she seemed rather non-threatening to the others, also helped her case. Little did they know, she would come up from behind and run away with the big prize! When asked about how she plans to use her prize money, she's prompt to mention that it's all being utilised towards her post-graduation.

Roadies is not merely about a tough journey with fantastic sights, sounds and tasks; it is about managing competition, inter-personal relationships and group dynamics. When 13 diverse personalities, cut-off from their families, are thrown into a cauldron of fun, adventure and cutthroat competition; survival instincts cause the strangest of reactions. Which makes great reality television.

MTV Hero Honda Roadies 3, India's only adventure reality show, flagged off from Jaisalmer where 13 young adventurers began the toughest ride of their lives working their way through Rajasthan, Delhi, Uttaranchal, Himachal Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh winding up in Leh. That's 2500 kilometers in 39 days on India's premium sports bike, the Hero Honda Karizma.

For all those who missed the action, here's one more opportunity to catch it. Tune into MTV every Monday to Thursday at 7 pm sharp. And watch Parul as she steals the show...from the very beginning.

MTV Hero Honda Roadies 3, presented by Hero Honda Karizma, in association with Garnier Fructis, Haier Mobiles, Mountain Dew and Castrol Power 1, with Fastrack from Titan as Style Partner, Nestle Polo as Partner, Ground Partner- Pizza Hut, Broadband Partner- Sifymax and Radio Partner - 93.5 RED FM
