PRESS STATEMENT FROM GMA-7:
"This November, GMA Network raises the bar in Philippine game shows with the premiere of Celebrity Bluff.
"Three of the country’s biggest names in comedy unite in the much-awaited project – award-winning comedienne/actress Eugene Domingo as Celebrity Bluff host together with well-loved comic tandem of Jose Manalo and Wally Bayola as the celebrity bluffers.
"Celebrity Bluff will surely bring happier weekends to every household, as it is not just an ordinary game show. As Eugene Domingo puts it, “Masaya nang laruin, masarap pang panoorin. Kaya naman hindi dapat palampasin ang bawat episode na ihahain namin.”
"Three contestants will attempt to outsmart one another by answering questions and performing challenges which will make them advance to the jackpot round where the winning contestant could take home a big amount of cash and other cool prizes.
"For round 1 (Unahan), three contestants will answer the questions correctly to earn cash points but the celebrity bluffers, also known as GangNam, will help, confuse or trick the players. Two contestants who accumulate the highest amount of cash points will advance to the next round (Salpukan).
"In Salpukan, the remaining players will perform physical challenges to earn cash points and must outplay the opponent.
"The contestant with the highest points at the end of round 2 advances to round 3 (Sagaran), one question will be asked the bluffers (GangNam) wherein they have 6 choices, 4 of which are correct answers.
"The winning player will then decide if he/she will accept or ignore the suggestion of the bluffers. Each correct answer is worth P25,000 and if the contestant gets 4 answers correctly, he/she could bring home P100,000 and have the chance to move on to the All the Way or No Way bonus question where the player could win a whopping half a million pesos.
"During the dry run of the said game show, one contestant shares, “Marami na akong napanood na game shows sa TV. Pero nung na-try ko yung Celebrity Bluff, kakaiba yung excitement na naramdaman ko. Hindi ko inakalang magiging ganito kasaya ang experience ko.”
"Celebrity Bluff premieres on November 17 after 24 Oras Weekend on GMA-7."
