TV5's ‘The Million Peso Money Drop’ Continues to Provide Life Changing Experience to Filipinos

TV5's ‘The Million Peso Money Drop’ Continues to Provide Life Changing Experience to Filipinos

TV5’s The Million Peso Money Drop continues to change Filipinos’ lives with its unique blend of excitement and suspense in each hour-long episode. Only half-way through its maiden season in the Philippines, the show has become a fast favorite among viewers - with more and more people live-tweeting the show on Sunday nights.

The show’s distinct format is designed to keep everyone on their toes - from the contestants and the audience to the viewers at home and host Vic Sotto. To date, only two pairs of contestants have emerged victorious from The Million Peso Money Drop and both agree that being on the show has done wonders for their relationships.

Andrew and Ging Domingo took home PhP150,000 from the show - a sizeable addition to their savings to take their daughter to Hong Kong Disneyland next year. Fiancées Rema Mallillin and Jeremy Casaul also conquered The Drop and can now work on their dream wedding with their PhP100,000 take-home prize. Both pairs said they were tested while playing for The Million Peso Money Drop’s grand prize. “Hindi namin akalain yung pressure sa amin habang naglalaro. Malakas talaga dapat ang relationship ninyo kung sasali kayo sa Money Drop kasi sa level pa lang ng kaba, mapapadalawang-isip ka na sa mga sagot,” according to Andrew. “Confident kami ni Rema sa relationship namin and lumalabas talaga sa game kung paano kayo makitungo sa isa’t-isa. Kailangan open talaga ang communication para sa inyong dalawa and sa pera, ‘walang laglagan’,” Jeremy said.

On the other hand, certified Bossing of All Game Shows Vic Sotto is optimistic that more contestants will win big on The Million Peso Money Drop. “Gusto namin talagang magbago ang buhay nga mga sumasali sa show. Biruin mo - umpisa pa lang ng show, milyonaryo na sila (contestants). So nasa kanila na ang lahat. Kapag naglalaro though, diskarte na nila kung paano iuuwi yung one million pesos,” Sotto said. “Masaya kami na maganda ang tinatakbo ng show and tinatangkilik kami ng viewers,” he added.

Join Bossing Vic as he guides more contestants in their quest to bring home one million pesos on The Million Peso Money Drop every Sunday at 8:30PM. For more information about the show, like its official Facebook page at and follow the official Twitter account at @MoneyDropPH.

TV5 Launches New Media Platforms

TV5 Launches New Media Platforms

Speaking at the launch of TV5’s new media and digital publishing properties, President and CEO Atty. Ray C. Espinosa shares the “story of convergence” of all TV5 platforms parallel with the direction of its parent company PLDT, “Our story is one of convergence. One of how different mediums like TV, mobile, radio, and print interact with one another which results in a richer experience for our users and our advertisers.”

The lines between TV, radio, print, online, and mobile are not just blurring, they are disappearing completely. The challenge for networks today is to embrace that change and to create content that seamlessly flows from one platform to the other which opens up a completely new way of telling stories,” Atty. Espinosa continued.

Here are TV5′s digital platforms:

Less than two years after TV5 launched, the online news portal has since become the fastest growing news portal in the Philippines; landing at the top five leading news portals in the country. The site closed the month of October with over 1.5 million unique visitors and 12.5 million page views. Its content is also available not just online but also through your mobile phones via the InterAksyon iOS and Android applications.


For sports TV5 has InterAKTV, the leading online sports portal in the country with over 9.4 million page views just in October alone. Pursuant to its convergence strategy, SPORTS5 launched the PBA on AKTV app on Google Play eight weeks ago, in cooperation with Smart and PBA. This is the first local second screen app in the Philippines which lets you get real time updates like game highlights, scores, player stats, and match-up alerts. In just 8 weeks the app has been downloaded more than 40,000 times and it has a rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars on the Google Play store.

TV5 launches, an ambitious digital lifestyle portal that will push the limits and boundaries of traditional digital publishing. Kristn is not just a website. Kristn represents TV5’s vision of what New Media is all about. It has a groundbreaking design and web user interface, a complex review and recommendation algorithm, expert and celebrity reviews, and light but highly informative and entertaining articles. All of that will be present across different platforms: TV, Online, and Mobile. Since went on open beta last October 10, it has already amassed over 700,000 page views.

Balut Radio

TV5 also announces a new digital offering called Balut Radio, which will be launched early next year. Balut Radio is the first streaming radio service where you will be able to select songs to share on social media. This project represents TV5’s strong advocacy and love for OPM and it envisions Balut Radio to become the global OPM hub.
