'It's Showtime' loses 3 millions in 20 days! Hosts won't get bonus this Christmas

Agot Isidro isn't the only one who lost P3-millions, but also the ABS-CBN noontime show 'It's Showtime'.

Not like Agot though who lost millions to a 'Dugo-Dugo Gang', 'It's Showtime' lost millions already after 3 players have won a million each for its new game, 'Isang Tanong, Isang Milyon'.

In its episode today, December 9, 2014, studio player Joel Boyboy, an OFW, correctly guessed the mystery word during the jackpot round,
after he was able to open the 3 boxes containing the clues 'TAMARAW',
'NG' and 'TEAM?'

He answered 'Far Eastern University' or 'FEU' which turned out to be
correct, earning for him a total winnings of P1,022,000.

The player was just so lucky that he was able to open clues 'tamaraw' and 'team'. It would be much harder if he opened the other words.

Joel now becomes the 3rd millionaire from that game in a span of just 20 days, after ice cream Roberto Bulanhagui last November 19 and aspiring teacher Jobelle Grevacio last November 20.

Producers of 'It's Showtime' probably are finding it hard now to accept that within 20 days, they've lost 3 millions already.

If you were able to watch that episode earlier, you would notice that after the player won a million, the hosts were not as happy and ecstatic as
the times when the 1st and 2nd millionaires won in the show 19 and 20 days ago.

And the reason? After today's player won the jackpot, the hosts and staff allegedly will no longer receive Christmas bonus. Host Kuya Kim Atienza even confirmed that when he guested earlier in 'Aquino & Abunda Tonight'. "Nakakatatlong milyonaryo na po kami, kaya wala na kaming Christmas bonus," he said during his live guesting in the show to promote his MMFF 2014 movie 'Shake, Rattle & Roll XV'.

Obviously, 'It's Showtime' failed in its attempt to keep many players from hitting the 1-million jackpot. They already made the questions in the game more difficult following the back-to-back wins. For instance, one of the 1M jackpot questions last week was: "Tatay ng Nanay ni Zia Quizon ay sino?".

'Isang Tanong, Isang Milyon' was launched by 'It's Showtime' just last month, but 3 players already have won the 1 million jackpot prize. - Mykiru.ph
