This round we asked: Who are you most thankful to?

Contestant 1

Besides my parents, for their life lessons, I'm most grateful to my friends for turning my virtues into vices. Oh, and Benedict Cumberbatch even though he doesn't know that I exist.

But really I'd like to thank my cat, Cowboy. If it weren't for him, the past four years of my life would have been like a flat, boring piece of paper lying aimlessly on my desk.

But now this piece of paper is crumpled and has character. That is how my cat has changed me.

Cowboy is nothing like any of my other friends. Human beings tend to engage in many different types of relationships with other people. But my cat devotes 100 per cent of his life to me. Since he is confined to our home for the rest of his life, and refuses to get along with my parents, he is overly-attached to me.

So when I play the piano, he sleeps on top of it. And when I go to my bedroom, he follows me there and jumps on my bed.

So, to officially show my appreciation for the bite marks on my arm, here I state my gratitude. I love my cat for his supportive silence and for not being annoying like my other friends, who often nag me.

So thanks, Cowboy, for being a cat and not ever being boring.

Contestant 2

There are so many people who have helped me over the years, through all the ups and downs. I would be very ungrateful if I did not mention my mum.

But if I were to pick the people I am most thankful for at this very moment, I would say Larry Page and Sergey Brin.

The names might be unfamiliar, yet what they did has had a great impact on our lives. These men co-founded Google.

I'm a procrastinator, so Google has saved me so many times, while I was rushing through my homework to meet the deadlines. I often turn to Google to quickly get inspiration for my essays. It has never disappointed me with its long list of search results.

Not only has Google helped me with my studies, it has also come in handy during my everyday life. The first time I boiled an egg, I used instructions from Google. Please tell me I'm not the only one who does this!

And, truth be told, I wouldn't even know who founded Google without going on Google to search for the answer.
