MANILA, Philippines – The Filipino family gets to have a whole new bonding experience plus the chance to win cash and prizes as the worldwide hit game show “Family Feud” finally arrives on the Philippines game show capital, ABS-CBN, beginning Saturday (April 9).
This highly anticipated local adaptation of “Family Feud” offers viewers a different viewing experience brought about by the Filipinos natural wit and strong fighting spirit when it comes to healthy competitions.
Also adding more flavor and life to the show is the country’s premier TV host Luis Manzano. When asked how he felt when he was chosen as host of the world renowned franchise, Luis said, “it is always overwhelming to be chosen to host a show of this magnitude and there is always added pressure since I am a personal fan of the show.”
Luis has always had a strong bond with his own family and his natural comedic personality ensures laughter and enjoyment for everyone.
The show also not only features immediate families but also extended families, friends, officemates, etc.
“Family Feud” begins with the “Face Off” round where one representative from each family is asked to identify the most popular answers to survey questions already answered by 100 people.
The player who guesses the more popular answer or the most popular answer, called the “Number One Answer,” gains control and enters the “Completing the Board” round with the rest of their family.
In the “Completing the Board” round, the rest of the family take turns in giving an answer without conferring with one another however, if the family accumulates three strikes or three incorrect answers they lose control of the board and the other family has the chance to steal the points.
Whichever family has the most points after both rounds proceeds to the “Fast Money” round.
The “Fast Money” round is the final round where two members of the family are given 25 seconds to answer five questions and their accumulated points determines the winnings of the family.
For the past years, ABS-CBN has been the Filipino master in localizing world renowned game show franchises such as in “Deal or No Deal”, “1 vs 100”, “Wheel of Fortune”, and “The Price is Right.” It has been the most trusted media and entertainment company by various franchises because of its high production value, wider reach of audiences, and high ratings.
