"Game ng Bayan" vs. Wowowin game show 'war' starts March 7

It didn't take long for the Kapamilya Network to come up with a game show to compete with Willie Revillame's Wowowin, which was moved to daily timeslot for the GMA Telebabad block last February.

Based on AGB Nielsen's data, the Kapuso show is the leader in its timeslot. Kantar Media on the other hand says ABS-CBN's pre-primetime shows "Pasion de Amor" and new teleserye titled "We Will Survive" got more viewers nationwide compared to Wowowin.

The TV ratings and gameshow "war" is expected to heat up as the new Kapamilya show will premiere on Monday.

"Game ng Bayan" will replace the timeslot of Kapamilya Deal Or No Deal, hosted by Luis Manzano. The latter bid goodbye on Friday after the fifth season with more than 385 episodes and P30 million total prizes.

Hosted by the “Idol ng Bayan,” Robin Padilla, with the “Tol ng Bayan,” Alex Gonzaga, the new ABS-CBN game show involves one hundred members of the community who are given a random challenge for a chance to win an identified need of the community such as renovation of daycare centers or basketball courts, light posts, etc.

Joining the hosts are “Tropa ng Bayan” composed of Eric Nicolas, MJ Lastimosa and Negi, who will guide contestants to become local heroes in their community.

“Game ng Bayan” begins with six individuals from a chosen barangay competing in the “Ang Dami Mong Alam” round, where they will be asked a question with multiple answers. Elimination occurs when a contestant answers incorrectly, when a contestant repeats an answer, and when all possible answers have been exhausted. In this round, only three will remain to move on to the next round, which is “Buksan ang Plato.”

In “Buksan ang Plato,” the remaining three contestants will take turns in opening numbered plates and must get three which says “Yehey” under it. In this round, they will be joined by their family or friends to help them make the crucial decision of which plates to open. The first contestant who successfully reveals three “Yeheys” goes through to the next round.

In the jackpot round, one hundred members of the community join the contestant as they work together to accomplish a task that will only be revealed before the round begins. Unity and teamwork will be the only way for the community to win their chosen jackpot prize.

Winning barangays from Monday to Thursday will then compete with each other by Friday to determine the best barangay for the week.

“Game ng Bayan” is an original concept by ABS-CBN.
