Watching television gameshows is one of our guilty pleasures. More than training our brain cells on general knowledge and the ability to think quickly, it’s the entertainment that always ropes us in to have our attention glued on the boob tube. The experience is the same when we watch it live.
At the grand media event for Shopee’s 9.9 Super Shopping Day, ambassador Marian Rivera hosted a game show, which mechanics is similar to that iconic game show where a lucky player was selected randomly.
“Anong bayong ang gusto nyo,” the actress said during an interview with Manila Standard Entertainment. She acted as if she was ready to dip her toes into something like what her husband Dingdong Dantes has been doing on television.
“I’m not closing my doors to hosting a game show, but why not, let’s try,” she said.
Marian admitted that she’s done so many things on TV including hosting a variety show but doing a game show is something that she will welcome with open arms in case an offer would land on her doorstep.
Meanwhile, the 38-year-old primetime star expressed her happiness seeing the media again in an in-person event, noting that it’s something that she’s been looking forward to experiencing since the start of more relaxed pandemic restrictions.
“We’ve been doing a lot of zoom meetings, so seeing you guys in person gives me so much happiness,” she said.
As Shopee ambassador, Marian is promoting 9.9 Super Shopping Day, the start of the company’s year-end shopping season.
