Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? is a Filipino game show based on the original British format of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?. The main goal of the game is to win 2 Million Philippine Pesos (earlier 1 Million) by answering 12 multiple-choice (previously 15) questions correctly. There are four lifelines: 50:50 (fifty-fifty), Phone A Friend, Switch the Question and Double Dip. The later two replaced Ask the Audience, which was used In 2009 until 2010 and Phone-a-Friend, used until the 2012 season and reused for the 5th version, replacing the People Speak lifeline instead. It was presented by Christopher de Leon (2000-2002) and Vic Sotto (2009-2015)

Trivia Edit

  • Sharon Cuneta is only celebrity contestant who was appeared twice and saw the final question. One of them she walked away on December 25, 2001, and later on January 9, 2010 she won top prize.
  • In the old version until 2002, Professor Amelita Lopez-Forbes and actress Sharon Cuneta are the contestants who reached the last question in 2001. Both took the money.
  • The biggest loss in this version is ₱850,000. On August 23, 2015, Kyle Andaya answered incorrectly on the last question worth ₱2,000,000 and left the game with a second fireproof amount of ₱150,000, since he chose Money Tree 1 (Classic Money Tree).
  • In the 2015 season, the 50:50 lifeline was only available in a risky version, as a bonus, fourth lifeline.
