Deal or No Deal Philippines Season 3

The big US hit Deal or No Deal is also huge game show in the Philippines. The Philippine version is called Kapamilya Deal or No Deal. The show will start its season 3 tomorrow (July 28th) with the pot at stake at P2 Million (approximately $47K).

The original Deal or No Deal was held in the Philippines (aired on May 5) and was seen worldwide as part of “Deal or No Deal Around the World” special. Host Howie Mandel with Kapamilya Deal or No Deal host Kris Aquino had a great time doing that special. I am not really crazy with Deal or No Deal but I did watch that special (Philippine episode only) just to see Kris Aquino and Philippines once again.

The  Kapamilya Deal or No Deal show will come back with a brand new look and hotter 26k models (case carriers). They even added a drum and bugle corps called Parokya ni Banker (The Banker’s Church), to add more noise excitement to the show.

When the Deal or No Deal game show debuted in US, my husband told me that the show copied it from “Pera o Bayong” (Money or Basket), a segment of a Philippine noon time show Magandang Tanghali Bayan (Good Afternoon People, abbreviated  into MTB) that was aired on ABS-CBN from 1998 to 2005. I died laughing when I heard what he said because I never thought or remembered “Pera o Bayong” or even see the similarity of both games.

I don’t think Deal or No Deal copied it from “Pera o Bayong” but since my husband mentioned it,  I realized that the game concept was similar indeed.
