Step by Step: How Elon Musk Built His Empire (by Anna Vital)“The next Bill Gates will not build an operating system. The next Larry Page or Sergey Brin won’t make a search engine.

‘Willing-Willie’ vows to out-wow ‘Wowowee’

From the Philippine Daily Inquirer.

=========================

MANILA, Philippines—Controversial television host Willie Revillame who captured a massive following here and abroad via his former “Wowowee” show on ABS-CBN, is promising bigger and better prizes for his new show on a rival station, despite his legal battle with his former network.

Among the daily prizes are a fully furnished house and lot, P1 million in cash, a brand new car and scholarships for the children of the winning family in one segment called “Family Appear.”

He added that participants from the audience in the studio could win as much as P50,000.

The new show is conceptualized not just to entertain, but mainly to give hope to the viewing public. “This is my legacy to the viewers—to give them hope that their dreams could come true,” Revillame said.

Revillame said prizes and gifts of his new show “Willing-Willie,” slated for launch on Oct. 23 on TV5, would exceed those of his former noontime show.

“We will have bigger and better prizes and we promise more fun and relevant segments in which participants could easily win,” he said in a recent talk with the Inquirer.

=========================

I don't know what makes me more sad. That Willie is back on TV or the fact that the only way our countrymen can make their dreams come true is to win in a game show.
