The Million Peso Omeny Drop

Good Essays
INTRODUCTION

The Million Peso Money Drop is a Philippine game show on TV5. Unlike its UK counterpart, this version is pre-recorded and not broadcast live. The show is hosted by Vic Sotto. This is the second Endemol program adapted by TV5 after Extreme Makeover: Home Edition Philippines.
This version of the show is based heavily on the American version which in turn is based on The Million Pound Drop Live. At the beginning, a pair of contestants are presented with a million pesos (40 bundles of 25,000 pesos in 20 peso bills), they must be able to keep their money until the end of the game by correctly answering 8 multiple choice questions by placing their bundles of money on the trapdoor (among 4) they think is correct in 60 seconds. If they are wrong, the money placed on the trapdoor will fall down the "money drop". They may distribute their money on multiple trapdoors if they are not sure of the answer, however, one trapdoor must alway be left empty. At certain questions, a trapdoor is put out of play. Whatever money they have left is theirs to keep.
The contestants may use one "Quick Change" during the game, on any question except the eighth. This feature allows them an extra 30 seconds to distribute their cash among the trapdoors. If no trapdoors are left open and the contestants still have the Quick Change, it will automatically be used.

It is also important to point out that the exports in 1974 and 1975 are practically the same.
