Sunday is funday with ‘People vs. The Stars’

Beginning tomorrow, GMA Network gives its loyal viewers another one-of-a-kind entertainment. Its a comedy game show entitled People vs. The Stars.

The program allows celebrities to play for a chance to win P200, 000.00 by answering eight mind-boggling questions each with a cash value. 

If the stars failed to answer any of the questions correctly, the question’s cash value would be awarded to televiewers that answered the “People Question of the Week” through text.

Thrilling and fun-filled, the show features the tandem of the multi-talented celebrity power-couple Drew Arellano and Iya Villania-Arellano.

POWER COUPLE. Husband and wife Drew Arellano and Iya Villana team up to host GMA 7's newest game show
As a first-time mom, Iya says this show takes away her anxiety whenever she is not with Primo, hers and Drew’s first born.

“Actually, this is the first time I will be hosting this kind of show na makulit and entertaining. Natutuwa ako kasi I consider this my rest whenever I am not on my ‘mommy duties’ kay Primo kasi nakakatawa lang talaga dito. It’s as if I don’t work. Plus kasama ko pa asawa ko, so yung fun talaga nandoon,” she said.

On the other hand, Drew is equally excited working with her wife in this game show.

“Excited ako kasi iba itong show na ito for us kasi more enjoyable and light environment. Hindi siya yung acting like sa mga shows namin 10 years ago. Dito mas makikita nila kung sino kami inside our house, ganun lang talaga,” he said.

Don’t miss the chance to bond with your favorite Kapuso stars and turn family days into mind-boggling and exciting days in People vs. The Stars every Sunday at 5 to 6 p.m. beginning tomorrow on GMA.
