TV5’s Sunday noontime show, Game ‘N Go, made a huge debut last Sunday, June 17 with its live initial telecast.
The two-and-a-half hour show tagged as “Sunday Buffet ng Saya” lived up to its title with its wacky and exciting games that left a lasting impression on its audience.
This week, more fun and games await Game ‘N Go viewers. Game keepers Gelli de Belen, Arnell Ignacio and Shalani Solded-Romulo will perform a special number that will surely entertain everyone. Shalani already surprised the public when she showed a different side of herself when she sang and danced her way into the public’s hearts during last year’s Wil Time Bigtime anniversary concert.
Audiences should also expect even more fun and laughs with Game ‘N Go’s True or Fall, Singgaling Go, Yugyug Tube, and a lot more.
Join Joey de Leon, Edu Manzano, Arnell Ignacio, Gelli de Belen, Shalani Soledad-Romulo, Daniel Matsunaga and Monika Sta. Maria every Sunday, 12:00PM on TV5.
TV5 presents its newest Sunday noontime variety and game show, “Game ‘N Go”.
“Game ‘N Go” will be hosted by game masters Joey de Leon and Edu Manzano together with Arnell Ignacio, Gelli de Belen and Shalani Soledad-Romulo, under the direction of Danny Caparas.
The said program was supposed to air on weekdays last March but TV5 changed its format to weekly and it’s now set to premiere on June 17, 2012, at 12:00 noon.
TV5 will debut its first ever noontime show, Game ‘N Go this coming March 10. This early, the show is already drawing a lot of comparison with Eat Bulaga, raising questions whether or not the game show is going head to head with the long-running noontime program.
During a recent photo shoot with Game ‘N Go hosts led by EduManzano and Gelli de Belen, the group was quick to dispel any doubts or rumors on the competition angle. “Di naman namin pakay na tibagin kung ano man ang nandiyan,” Gelli de Belen explains.
“Gusto lang namin ng pwesto. Iba din naman yung dadalin namin… Eat Bulaga ‘yan. Basta ang amin, we promise to bring something different.”
What sets Game ‘N Go apart from other noontime programs is its format. “It’s a game show and not a variety show,” Gelli clarifies.
The only game show offered in a noontime timeslot, Game ‘N Go features original and franchised games. With its back-to-back-to-back game format, audiences are treated to a number of games that provide high chances of winning.
Big prizes await studio audiences and home viewers. And for those who can’t go to the studio, the show also has an on-ground component, visiting barangays all over the country. “Maganda kasi ang naiisip na show ng TV5,” Edu Manzano says.
“Game shows are usually seen on primetime at night, but here we thought of showing at at daytime.” He adds that while there is pressure to make sure the show excels, their top priority as game masters is to make sure that the audience is happy and entertained.
“There’s a self-imposed pressure,” the seasoned host admits. “Gusto mong maging maganda yung programa mo. Gusto mo pag may bumati sayo sa kalsada [ang sasabihin nila], ‘Uy, napanood ko yung Game ‘N Go. Ang saya!’ Yun ang pinakamagandang reward na iyong matatanggap. What’s important here is when your audience, [whether] studio contestants or yung mga nasa bahay, napasaya mo.”
Joining Edu and Gelli as game masters are Arnel Ignacio, Shalani Soledad-Romulo, Tuesday Vargas, Pretty Trisza, and Wendy Valdez. This is the first time that most of them will work together in one show and yet the group seems like they have been together for a long time.There is a light and engaging atmosphere among them that is seen to help them connect with viewers more.
Despite the so-called “self-imposed pressure” among them, the Game ‘N Go hosts are positive that the public will receive them warmly. After all, there is still room for genuine light-hearted fun for Filipinos who not only want great noontime entertainment, but bigger chances of winning as well.
As comedienne Tuesday Vargas succinctly puts it, “Dapat ma-accept mo na ibang liga sila. Iba yung thrust ng show [namin], iba yung format. Aware kami dun sa binibigay na pressure ng time slot but at the same time [we won’t allow it] to get in the way of the fun factor of the show. Dahil established na yung mga kasabay mo, dapat alam mo rin kung saan ka naiiba, kung ano yung market mo at ano yung maihahandog mo kasi pandagdag din ‘to sa choice ng mga tao tuwing tanghali.”
Game ‘N Go’s pilot episode airs on March 10, 11:30 am on TV5.
Now it can be explained why Shalani Soledad is no longer seen on WilTime BigTime, she is now part of the up-coming noon time show Game and Go on TV5!
“Game ‘N Go,” is the newest noon time show of TV5 which will also include Edu Manzano, Gelli de Belen, Arnel Ignacio and Tuesday Vargas, among others. It is slated to premiere next month.
This is what Shalani said:
“The show will be in March and excited na tayo to start the show and work with Arnel (Ignacio) who I have worked with for some time sa ‘Wiltime.’ And of course, we will be working with Edu, with Gelli, with Tuesday, so of course excited din tayo.”
Her husband Roman Romulo’s thoughts on her continuing her showbiz career:
“He’s always been telling me, ‘As long as you’re happy with your work, as long as you’re happy in what you’re doing. Okay sa akin. If it makes you happy, happy na rin ako’.”
On how she adjusted to married life:
“Okay naman. Although ang adjustments namin, si Roman, he sleeps early. Ako, I sleep late and I wake up late. So pag gising na ako, paalis na sya, or pag gising na sya, tulog na tulog pa ako.”

Edu Manzano is now officially a Kapuso! A very reliable source said that he is going to host a new game show titled “Atras Talo” which will air sometime in September.
Do you think it is a wise move of Edu to be in GMA 7 after losing in the last election? He really did a good job as a game show host before he embarked into politics.
