Pilipinas: Win na Win to Replace Wowowee

So it's final. ABS-CBN is pulling off the plug of their popular noontime show "Wowowee" and replace it with "Pilipinas: Win Na Win". This was announced by the network just recently and it said the new show is going to start this coming Saturday, July 31.

This ends the speculations about the return of Willie Revillame to Wowowee. In some unconfirmed reports, Willie will really return to the show this coming Saturday but an ABS-CBN insider threatened to resign if Willie will make a comeback. Another rumors, that said to have prompted the management to replace Wowowee, is the survey conducted to TFC subscribers which yielded the result that they prefer a new show thatn Wowowee without Willie.

"Pilipinas: Win Na Win" is to be hosted by Kris Aquino, Robin Padilla, Pokwang, Mariel Rodriguez and Valerie Concepsion. It is said to be a variety and game show but with similar concept with Wowowee. Mixed reactions has been aired by fans about the decision of the network on the fate of Wowowee which ran for 5 long years.

Willie Revillame meanwhile, has yet to issue an official statement about this development. He can't be reached with his cellphone and is very hard to find nowadays. There are those who are saying that all he wants now is to be out from his contract with the network. But this couldn't be true because according to some insiders, Willie is in fact remain as Kapamilya and is going to return anytime soon.

It is said that "Pilipinas: Win Na Win" is good only for one season, or 13 episodes. This only indicates that Willie is really making a comeback after the end of the new noontime show. All are just speculations right now. Some are even wondering if Willie is going to go "ober da bakod" to the Kapuso network which, according to some reports, are sending emissaries to Willie for an undisclosed  offers.

Just a note: The original name for the new show was "Pilipinas: For The Win" with the initials "FTW". If you are going to reverse it, it is some kind of obscenity so they change it to "Pilipinas: Win Na Win".


  1. Kris Aquino for a noontime show? Robin Padilla? di marunong mag-host, nagpapacute lang lagi para mapansin. Anong nangyayari Kapamilya?

    I think it's time to get the remote control and switch to Eat Bulaga!

  2. I agree with TFC Guy. I don't want to hear kris Aquino's voice at noontime. same observation here with Robin...
