TV5 Brings Local Version of the Gameshows 'The Wall' and '1000 Heartbeats'

Finally we are getting new gameshows on local TV with the announcement of the newest shows by the Kapatid network. This March, they will premiere shows franchised from the Us and the UK, and these are  The Wall Philippines and 1000 Heartbeats - Pintig Pinoy.

Produced by Viva Entertainment, these shows brings excitement with the unique concept of the programs. As TV5 is now pushing for more shows that will spice up their program line up that will attract more viewers and also fans of the game shows.

Hosting the two shows are also what will make them interesting. Billy Crawford will host The Wall Philippines while Xian Lim will be for 1000 Heartbeats - Pintig Pinoy. Billy is known to have hosted a lot of reality and game shows which makes him the perfect choice and expands his presence in TV5. 

Xian Lim admits that this will be his first time hosting a game show. He is used to be seen hosting various events such as beauty pageants, awards night and variety shows which now comes as a new experience for him. This is a great opportunity for Xian to prove his versatility beyong being an actor and host. 

The Wall is like a giant pachinko game with a twist. The mechanics are simple: get a correct answer to get a GREEN ball, miss a question and get a RED ball; green adds to the total pot money while red deducts. The game is played by two players with a close familiarity, with the first episodes featuring blood-related contestants. The pair works as a team to bank as much money they can by answering a series of questions. After the third round is a decision round, where drama and hilarity ensues.

1000 Heartbeats-Pintig Pinoy on other other hand has this kind of format:

Each of the contestants will be allotted 1000 heartbeats as its equivalent of a time limit to answer a set of questions. With the help of a monitoring equipment, the players’ heart rates will be recorded throughout the game, upon which the game is declared over once all 1000 heartbeats are registered. Conversely, the way to win the cash prize is by keeping their cool under pressure in all seven rounds. 

Comedian and Youtuber Chad Kinis, also joins Xian to guide and interview the contestants on the thrilling experience of the show. 

The two also brings back quiz-based shows free TV which is also a great way of educating viewers with trivia and facts along with the fun gameplay.  

The Wall Philippines is set to premiere on Saturday, March 13 at 6PM on TV5. 1000 Heartbeats-Pintig Pinoy will air its pilot episode the succeeding week, on Sunday, March 21 at 8PM. Viewers can access both TV5 via the Cignal Play app. Download for FREE for Android and iOS users.
