Traditionally, Who Wants to be a Millionaire? is a general knowledge game show that sets off challenges, suspense, and a 1 Million cash prize. But as it lands on TV5, the show escalates it to a P2,000,000 jackpot prize, turning the contestants eager and excited as the questions eventually turn into higher levels of difficulty.

Keeping loyal to its original format, contestants are provided “Lifelines” in the form of ‘Ask the Audience’ at which the audience key in their answers, ‘50/50’ wherein two wrong answers are eliminated from the choices, and the ‘Phone a Friend’ option.

Interested contestants all over the country are given the chance to win millions by just simply typing in “MILLION (space) Name” to 2910 on their mobile phones, wherein an automated reply will be sent to the subscriber for the next steps.

Aside from the game show’s exciting format and crisp mechanics that has been tried and tested yet still is undoubtedly novel, Vic Sotto as Who Wants to be a Millionaire? game show master and as the latest addition to the TV5 family is already something to watch out for.

  11. HI! Good day! Let me just give my comment about the presented question on the correct unit of weight aired August 28, 2011. Your options were the following- meter, kilogram, joule, and watt. I think there is no correct answer for that given question. Your research crew should know how to distinguish mass from weight. If the unit of mass is being asked, kilogram is the correct answer, however the basic unit of weight is Newton, since weight is a force. Mass should be multiplied by the acceleration of the gravity.
