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 latter two replaced Ask the Audience, which was used until the 2010 season 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).

Who Deserves to Be a Millionaire? Edit

For four episodes starting from December 12, 2009 to January 2, 2010, a special charity edition of the show was held called Who Deserves to Be a Millionaire?. Each episode comprised one celebrity and a representative from his/her chosen charity playing as a team. Rules stayed the same. The tradition returned on December 4, 2011. The Philippines was the fourth country to use the Deserves title and format; after Chile (2006), Nigeria and China (both 2007).

The following are the celebrities who played in this special edition and the prize that they each won:
