"Deal Or No Deal" Airs Final Episode On September 28ABS-CBN popular game show "Kapamilya Deal or No Deal" will air its final episode on September 28 (Saturday) with broadcast journalist Korina Sanchez as the contestant.
The "TV Patrol" anchor will take on a different role as she challenges The Banker and tries to deal her way to the P2 million cash prize. The feisty host will bravely match The Banker's offers and will even give side comments about the mysterious banker.
"Oh my God! Ang masasabi ko lang, it’s historic! It’s historic! I think it’s the first in the history of ‘Kapamilya, Deal or No Deal,’ so kailangan talaga panoorin nila!"
If she wins the jackpot prize, she will be the fifth winner of P2 million in the show.
For host Luis Manzano, "Kapamilya Deal or No Deal" was a life-changing experience for him. He said the show defined his hosting career. It was previously hosted by Kris Aquino and Luis' father, Edu Manzano.
"It was my first game show to host solo, so it was truly a memorable experience for me. The fact that they trusted me with a big show was a big deal for a host like me. I can say after more than a year on air, I have learned so much(,) from the contestants, staff, and everyone else."
"Kapamilya Deal or No Deal," considered to be the most successful game show adaptation on Philippine television, aired four seasons since 2006. The recent show aired for more than a year and a half.
"We are very happy that for the first time, the show aired for more than a year. I had very big shoes to fill and I was nervous doing the project, but the fact that we aired longer than expected means we did something right."
There was no reason given as to why the show will come to an end even though it has considerably high ratings compared with the other weekend shows of ABS-CBN.
Luis said he will miss the energy of the show, the tension and even The Banker's voice. He added that he will also miss looking forward to the cluelessness of the contestants who chose the briefcases.
The last episode of "Kapamilya Deal or No Deal" will air on Saturday (September 28) after "TV Patrol Weekend" on ABS-CBN.
