The longest running franchise game show in the Philippines makes a grand comeback this Sunday, May 10, as TV5 premieres Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? Season 14. Hosted by no other than the “Bossing of game shows” Mr. Vic Sotto, WWTBAM kicks off its new season this weekend with the return of the famous lifeline “Phone-a-Friend” along with a new and improved set.
In line with TV5’s continuous aim to make Filipino viewers happy, it is now giving greater chances for the contestants to take home the much-coveted Two Million Peso jackpot prize by reducing the number of questions which will be asked in this new season -- from the usual 15 questions, it has now been lowered to 12.
For the initial episode of the Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? Season 14, Vic Sotto will be sharing the stage with the mother-daughter tandem of ace comedienne Ruby Rodriguez and showbiz newbie Toni Aquino. Kapatid viewers are in for a night of fun as Ruby works with Toni in trying their luck by answering the 12 hot seat questions. Will they be able to reach the jackpot round and win the P2 million grand prize?
Since it started airing on TV5 in 2009, Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? has been able to rekindle the Pinoy viewers’ game show craze. To note, the show has consistently maintained its status as a top-rating show of the Kapatid Network. Viewers have seen how ordinary Filipinos tried their luck in the game show and saw the biggest change in their live. Several celebrities also gamely played for their chosen charities – Sharon Cuneta, Dina Bonnevie, Sen. Francis “Chiz” Escudero, Coney Reyes, Ruffa Gutierrez and Lucy Torres-Gomez, to name a few.
Be part of this latest season of “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire”, airing every Sunday, starting May 10 at 9pm, exclusively on TV5.
