Another New ‘Milyonaryo’ on ‘Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?’

Another winner of P2,000,000 was crowned last Sunday on ‘Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?’ as Gaeilo Pajinag, Jr. won the top prize.

This past Sunday, ‘Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?‘ crowned another winner of the elusive P2,000,000 cash. Gaeilo Pajinag, Jr. won the prize by answering ‘Jabberwocky‘ to the question ‘What was the title of the poem written by Lewis Carroll that used nonsense words?’ Gaeilo used the newly-created High Risk Money Tree, a format featuring a fourth lifeline called ‘Double Dip’ and a lone safe haven of P20,000, to become only the third winner of the P2,000,000 since the Vic Sotto-hosted version began in 2008.

Gaeilo’s run for P2,000,000 took 1 1/2 episodes, and while he ended up using all four of the High Risk lifelines, he still did not cave in to the temptation of getting a check and walk away. Instead he kept answering the riskiest of questions, even if it meant losing the earnings and going back to P20,000. The P1,000,000 question of ‘If Trinoma is known as the Triangle North of Manila, what is the meaning of Tribeca in America?’ showcased his resolve by answering ‘Triangle Below Canal’, which eventually put him in a position to either lose P1,980,000 or win P2,000,000.

Gaeilo’s victory also showed how the need of knowledge, resolve, calmness and wit will help a contestant win P2,000,000. Just ask the prior P2,000,000 winner in Karl Jonathan Aguilar, who used these qualities to win the top prize two years ago.

Meanwhile, the search for the latest P2,000,000 winner continues. ‘Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?’ airs on TV5’s ‘Weekend Do It Better’ every Sunday at 7:00 p.m.

    The PBA had to immediately end its coverage of Game 5 of the finals last Sunday to air that episode of Who Wants to be a Millionaire. And it seems that it made the right decision. Aksyon TV showed the post-game analysis.

    ‘Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?’ returns with its new season starting this Sunday at 7 pm after the PBA games. Mac n Chiz moves back to 8 pm. Move It is now on hiatus pending on whether it will be renewed for another season.
