“Viewers should watch out for the ‘kulitans’ and basically how I interact with the contestants. I have a very very big shoes to fill but more than this pressure, I just look forward to enjoying the experience,” said Luis.
One of the country’s most sought after and premiere hosts, Luis takes on KDOND after three successful seasons hosted by Queen of All Media Kris Aquino. Luis is no newbie when it comes to the hosting realm and in fact, has already proven his worth in the industry as one of the hosts of “E-Live” and “Pilipinas Got Talent.”
Everyone is indeed eagerly anticipating what the Endemol franchise will offer this season and how many lives it will change in a snap.
Among the things to watch out for is the new Banker who would offer tempting deals to the studio player. New briefcase girls, now called 24K girls, will also do the iconic ‘rampa’ and hold the amounts that will change the course of the game.
A whopping P2 million jackpot prize is still at stake if the contestant chose the winning briefcase.
Since its launch in 2006, a total of 21 millionaires were named in KDOND. It is one of the most successful game show in the country, not only for its ratings, but for the honor it brought to Filipinos when it was chosen by “Deal or No Deal” USA as the only Asian franchise to be part of its world tour edition in 2008. ABS-CBN’s PR campaign for the event also earned the show a Philippine Quill Award of Merit in the same year.
Playing for a deal of a lifetime this season premiere is newest Kapamilya Carmina Villaroel. Will she be lucky enough to pick the right briefcase? Will Banker give her a hard time? Will she join Judy Ann Santos and Ryan Agoncillo, Maja Salvador, Gerald Anderson and Jake Cuenca, Arnel Pineda, and Aiko Melendez in the roster of KDOND celebrity millionaires?
Don’t miss the premiere of “Kapamilya Deal or No Deal” hosted by Luis Manzano, this Saturday (Feb 25), 6 PM after “TV Patrol Weekend” on ABS-CBN.
