PRESS STATEMENT FROM ABS-CBN:
"ABS-CBN’s current noontime offering Happy Yipee Yehey! proudly brings back the all-time favorite game Pera o Bayong. It can be recalled that Pera o Bayong first conquered the nation in Magandang Tanghali Bayan (MTB). This noontime craze continued even in the succeeding noontime shows of the Kapamilya Network. All this success proves that ABS-CBN has always been the pioneer in creating more exciting and well-loved noontime games.
"Whopping prizes and excitement are of course, the gifts of the game. With the humorous hosting of noontime show veterans John Estrada, Toni Gonzaga, Randy Santiago and Mariel Rodriguez, Happy Yipee Yehey! wants to make Pera o Bayong merrier and more colorful. The four hosts admit they’re quite confident with the output of the game, especially because it’s ABS-CBN’s brainchild.
"Nakakatuwa dahil napapanindigan namin yung pangako namin sa mga manonood na dito sa Happy Yipee Yehey, purong kasiyahan lang. Lalo pa akong natuwa na ibinabalik na ang Pera o Bayong. Alam naman nating lahat na maraming napasaya yang game na yan," said Randy.
"John said he’s always excited to bargain with the contestants. "Ilang araw pa lang nagbabalik ang Pera o Bayong, may nanalo agad ng malaking papremyo. Noong isang araw, may nanalo ng P100,000. At alam kong sobrang nabago ang buhay ng taong iyon. Kaya lalong nakakataba ng puso, lalo’t alam mong may natutulungan yung ginagawa mo."
"Meanwhile, last Saturday, the audience kept on cheering during the much-awaited performance of Sexbomb Dancers in Happy Yipee Yehey! Together with John and Randy, the Sexbomb girls sang their all-time favorite hits. Other hosts also brought out the bombs in them as they danced with the girls. Catch Happy Yipee Yehey’s weekly surprises.
"Joining the club are the most sought-after co-hosts Bianca Manalo, Melai Cantiveros, Matteo Guidicelli, John Prats, Jobert, Bentong and Sam Milby. Make Happy Yipee Yehey your daily habit, Mondays through Saturdays, after Showtime on ABS-CBN."
