Willie Revillame wants fairness exercised in his show Wowowin at all times, "Tandaan ninyo, hindi po ako papayag na may maaagrabyado, lalung-lalo na yung mahihirap. Kawawa naman po sila."



Willie Revillame stopped giving away prizes to selected studio audience members after discovering a cheating incident.

In the July 18 episode of his afternoon variety game show Wowowin, Willie was supposed to give out prizes for the “1, 2, 3, Go” segment to audience members after contestants failed to choose a right answer.

When he drew the first name of an audience member at the studio, he found out that the person was already chosen to play in an earlier game.

“Naglaro na siya, siya na naman?” Willie asked the program's staff.

A staff member said audiences were reminded about the strict rule of having duplicate entries for the raffle.

“Doon po sa audience sa tent, sinasabi namin na kailangan isa lang po yung fill-up-an. Kasi, kapag nalaman na nagdalawa, madi-disqualify talaga tayo. Maliwanag po yun,” said the staff member of Wowowin.

For this reason, Willie decided not to draw any more names from the audience.

“Itong show na 'to, binibigay ito sa mahihirap. Iniisip ko 'to kung papaano kayo sasaya. Iniisip ko 'to kung papaano kayo magbabagong buhay,” he told viewers.

Instead, the GMA-7 TV host divided the prizes among everyone in the audience.

“Ganito na lang gagawin natin, bibigyan ko na lang lahat kayo ng pamasahe,” he explained.

“Mawawalan na kayo ng gana, e, na maglaro ngayon kasi may dayaan na.

“Dayaan 'yan! Parang pagbumoto ba ako ngayon, boboto ba ako ulit mamaya?

“Hindi po natin itutuloy kasi ho hindi ko na puwedeng bunutin 'yan.

“Baka mayroon pang ibang pangalan diyan [na na-doble], unfair sa inyo.”

To discourage future audience members from cheating on his game show, Willie said, “Anyway, hindi po ito para sa amin.

“Para po sa inyo ito dahil kayo po ang pumipila rito, kayo po ang nagpapa-reserve.

“Kayo po ang may-ari ng show, dapat proteksiyunan namin kayo. Kayo ang nag-e-enjoy dito, hindi naman kami, e.

“Ibig kong sabihin, nag-e-enjoy kami kapag nakikita naming masaya kayo. Yun ang pinaka-premyo para sa amin.”

To conclude, he stressed, “Tandaan ninyo, hindi po ako papayag na may maaagrabyado, lalung-lalo na yung mahihirap. Kawawa naman po sila.”
