Melissa Krepp and TJ Manahan go head to head in the Final 2

And then there were two…

Two remain standing in the quest for the prestigious title of March Madness Champion this week. This year, Melissa Krepp and TJ Manahan have made it to the final battle. Their efforts have paid off, but there will only be one crowned as the winner of 2019. Who will it be?

“Melissa is a real challenge. She’s given me a real fight in this competition. I have been doing everything I can. If she makes it to the final spot, then honestly, she earned it. It has been a luck of the draw, for me. I have hit as many doors as I could. I’ve pushed myself past my own limits. It’s 6:00 PM and I am still waiting in a business owner’s parking lot, for him to get off so we can quote him.” TJ has definitely waged his own war in this competition. He has put up an incredible fight and has done an amazing job this month.

“Going up against TJ was petrifying. He comes up with these huge deals. I have been holding my breath every second. He has so much drive and so much determination. I knew I was going to have to go hard. He is intense and passionate. He kicks butt! If there was going to be any kind of competition, I would have to up my anti. I’ve learned a lot from watching him. It’s an honor to have fought in this March Madness. He called me at the beginning of this week just to talk. There’s comradery and that’s what I love the most. At the end of the day we all want each other to succeed, even though we’re each other’s competition.” Melissa has forged her way through this competition and does not plan on stopping anytime soon. “We still have 24 hours, so we’ll see what happens.”

Don’t count either one out just yet. Are you as excited as we are to see who will be on our next March Madness champion? Stay tuned!
