ALL STAR K, GMA Network’s critically acclaimed and one-of-a-kind TV game show for celebrities which aired for 8 years from 2002 to 2009 is getting a reboot this Sunday (September 3).

Now called as ALL STAR VIDEOKE, it will follow a similar format as with the original show but with some minor enhancements. For example, instead of having their seats pulled back when contestants are eliminated from the game – they now stand on traps with a floor that opens and drops the contestants out of the game.

It may not look much to TV audiences but it is really a very frightening experience for all the contestants, especially those who have fear of heights just like BETONG SUMAYA who revealed some of the new show’s exciting secrets during a special online media launch party held at the 17th Floor of GMA last Wednesday.

BETONG as VickyOKE will be co-hosting ALL STAR VIDEOKE with SOLENN HEUSAFF.

He told rainCHECK that hosting a show on GMA with Solenn is a dream come true for him –  a dream that he revealed during an episode of Survivor Philippines: Celebrity Doubles Showdown in 2011. While they’ve already been in shows together before, Betong said that this is the first time that they’ll be hosting a game show together.

DID YOU KNOW: ALL STAR K was originally called as K! The 1 Million Peso Videoke Challenge with Arnell Ignacio as host, the show was reformatted to All Star K in 2004 and Allan K and Jaya took over as hosts. There were only five celebrities who won the 1 million pot money and one of them was Regine Velasquez.

Now aside from the pot money, ALL STAR VIDEOKE will also be giving out a brand new car to celebrity winners!

During the event, we were also treated with an exclusive screening of the pilot episode (the one that will be shown tonight, September 3) – and I could honestly say that the show’s return is most welcome. Sundays will never be boring with ALL STAR VIDEOKE on the telly.

The pilot episode features Alden Richards and Jerald Napoles as guest judges or “The Laglagers” – the show will have a different set of Laglagers every episode. Also, Betong said during the interview that there’s a big chance that the Laglagers might also be selected as contestants in the future – so Alden Richards on that scary trap, that’ll be something to look forward to.

The pilot episode will have the following celebrities as contestants: Barbie Forteza, Jak Roberto, Megan Young, Mikael Daez, Kim Domingo and Ken Chan. Can you guess who will be the first to drop out?

That’s for me to know and for you to find out later. 🙂

It’s really a very fun game, I should know because we played the game during the launch with Betong as our emcee. I got four correct answers out of six during the sing-off challenge where I sang Britney Spear’s “Baby One More Time”.
