A new season of ‘Bet on Your Baby’ looms on the horizon.
The game show that produced 11 millionaire kids in its first two seasons now returns for a third. And ABS-CBN made it even more exciting with some new twists to the game.
Judy Ann Santos-Agoncillo will remain the host of ‘Bet on Your Baby’, but will now have a virtual sidekick in Piggy Bangs. Both will play crucial roles in interacting with the cute and cuddly contestants.
Those said contestants will also be part of the exclusive Baby Club, which will give them complete access and privileges to the program. With that, here is how ‘Bet on Your Baby’ is played.
- Accompanied by their parents, each baby starts off by facing each other one-on-one in mini challenges inside the Baby Dome. A parent then places their bet on how far their child can go in the challenge, with P 10,000 for the correct bet and P 5,000 for the incorrect bet.
- A child and their parents then try to answer a question correctly in order to advance to the jackpot round. This round, also known as ‘Watcha Makulit’, is where eliminations will take place.
- In the jackpot round, mommy, daddy and baby have three chances to find and smash a piggy bank that contains P 1 million. If done successfully, the kid will now join a select list of ‘Babynaryos’.
For the first few weeks of ‘Bet on Your Baby’, celebrity babies will have the opportunity to win P 1 million. Auditions for regular baby contestants will be announced at a later date.
Appropriately enough, the third season premiere of ‘Bet on Your Baby’ will take place on Mother’s Day weekend. That said, families will have plenty more reasons to watch this exciting and cuddly game show that has been a Kapamilya institution since 2013.
It will be interesting to see how this new season plays out. With that, good luck.
‘Bet on Your Baby’ airs every Saturday at 5:15 p.m. and Sunday at 5:00 p.m. on ABS-CBN.

Kanina po, may nagkataon na nag rated PG ang BOYB. Pero, may mga past episodes po ba from past seasons or current season of the said program na nag rated PG rin. Obviously, rated G talaga ang BOYB…. sa ilang episodes lang majority…
Some episodes of BOYB are rated PG because of a few risky situations that are not suitable for younger viewers. Hindi maiiwasan ang mga yan, kahit mga bata pa lang ang mga ito. As soon as taping for an episode concludes, MTRCB will determine if that upcoming episode is G or PG, and its decision is withheld until it is aired.
The reason why some episodes of BYOB are rated PG are the ff:
Eric Nicolas (ewan ko kung co host siya ni Juday or guest lang siya)
Tinatawanan ng audience ung bata kung may nakakatawa sa kaniya but slight lang unlike ung nangyari sa show ni willie dati wa back from 2011.
Overall, despite its status as a kid-friendly show, hindi talaga maiiwasan ang mga sensitive na eksena at situations that may not be suitable for kids themselves. That’s why they placed the PG sign in some episodes to be honest.
Many programs now are rated PG. Madalang lang talaga ang G sa panahong ito.
Obviously, sinilip ko po ung TV ng isang bahay na nanonood ng BOYB kanina habang papunta ako doon sa isang bahay… Bihi-bihira po kase akong nanonood ng TV….
And my curious question, may inanunsyo na po bang audition ng BOYB para po sa mga ordinaryong tao (non-celebrity) or meron na pong already na audition for them???
There is one already. Eto, sa FB nila.
