Manny Many Prizes Indeed


Manny Pacquiao in his game show's pilot episode

Manny Many Prizes lived up to its name on its first day. It indeed rained money and lots of prizes on Saturday, July 16 at AFP Theater, Manila, Philippines.

The show had its first big winner on that day. Dito “Jun” Roldan of Payatas City is now a homeowner. Manny Pacquaio gave out a house and lot to the lucky contestant despite the latter making it to the jackpot round.

Co-hosts Rhian Ramos, Paolo Contis, Isabelle Daza, Onyok Velasco and Gladys Guevarra gave out big amounts in the show’s different segments.

One segment, called Baranggay vs Baranggay (Village vs Village), calls for nominations for exemplary residents who are deserving of big prizes. Manny’s Pick is another game resembling a lottery.

People from all corners of the Philippines flocked to AFP Theater as early as the day before with hopes of bagging the top prize. Most of them were from depressed areas hoping for a quick way out of poverty and into instant wealth.

The game show will be touring different towns and cities all over the country according to the first-time game show host. Pacquiao co-produced the show with GMA Network. The show airs Saturdays at 6 p.m. (Manila time).

The live pilot episode guested Glaiza de Castro, La Diva, Ely Buendia and Kapuso artists who made it into FHM 100 Sexiest Women list led by Sam Pinto.

Looks like we’ll be seeing much more of Pacquiao — in boxing rings, congress and now in TV.
