Kapamilya, Deal or No Deal's 21st millionaire is Mykiru's former classmate

For its third season alone, Kapamilya Deal or No Deal has produced already a total of 9 millionaires beating out the show's previous record of 8 millionaires during Season 2. (They had 4 during the 1st season)

And last night, the show had its 21st millionaire in the person of a Bicolano aspiring chef Christopher Viray (photo), who happens to be my classmate and batchmate in highschool.

I am more than happy to know that someone in our class has become a millionaire in less than 10 years since we graduated from highschool.

In the history of Kapamilya Deal or No Deal, Chris or Tophe holds the record for winning the 2nd highest amount (P1,600,000) and also the first contestant to have accepted the banker's highest offer ever.

Even though Christopher grabbed the offer over his briefcase which contained the 4 million pesos, it's already a life-changing experience for someone like him who led a simple life in the province.

New millionaire Tophe, whose birthday falls on Christmas Day and a devotee of Our Lady of Perpetual Help, plans to use his winnings in putting up his desired business someday.

Tophe looks bigger now but wayback in highschool years, he was one of the campus heartthrobs.

On a personal note, one of my fondest memories with Tophe is during our sophomore year, when I was a transferee then and he was the first guy classmate to approach and introduce himself to me.

During college, Tophe was also the person who encouraged me to apply as a service crew at Jollibee, where he was a Counter Crew. He referred me and maybe, he's one of the reasons why I got hired.

And after college, I once experienced riding on the back of his motorcycle as he and some other night riders went around the city streets for a motorcycle race.

Now that he's a millionaire, I think it's just fair if he could host our batch's reunion in the future. Haha! What do you think Tophe?

Anyways, Congrats Tophe! I'm so happy for you.

Take a look at some of Tophe's photos:
