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.
