Santana couldn't hold back her glee after winning ZM's $50,000 Secret Sound prize this morning.

The ZM fan had called in to have a go at guessing the correct answer in the radio station's competition, which has been running for weeks.

Held every morning by ZM morning hosts Fletch, Vaughan and Megan, the competition offers fans the chance to win $50,000 if they can guess what a short snippet of audio is actually a recording of.

Santana correctly guessed that the "chk-chk" sound was audio of chopsticks being rubbed together.

"Pack your bags," said money man Gary. "That is the correct Secret Sound. It is chopsticks rubbing together."

Santana's glee quickly turned to squeals as Fletch and Vaughan let off glitter cannons and Megan opened bubbles.

As Santana kept squealing "oh my god" over and over again, Megan said: "You're going to make me cry ... are you okay?"

Santana said she'd use the money to "help out my family a lot, pay off a lot of debt, and take my son on holiday".
