Miss Universe 2013 3rd runner up Ariella Arida, Binibining Pilipinas–Intercontinental 2014 Kris Janson, and hunk models Fabio Ide and Brent Javier will heat up viewers’ mornings this Thursday (May 22) in “The Singing Bee.”

The four have already conquered the ramp, but do they also have what it takes to show off their lyrics guessing skills? To ease the tension, Ariella, Kris, Fabio, and Brent give sample performances before the clash between them starts.

Who among them will join daily winners Matt Evans, Cliff Hogan (Justin Bieber Kalokalike), and DJ Durano for the P1 million jackpot battle this Friday (May 23)?

“The Singing Bee,” hosted by Roderick Paulate and Amy Perez, remains to be the most watched program in its timeslot despite the launch of its new rival program “Basta Everyday Happy.” The hit musical game show recorded a national TV rating of 13.3% and fared six points higher than its rival show, which only got 7.1% when the latter debuted last Monday (May 12).
