Top 10 Gameshows Live on Your Phone!

We’ve all come to love the regular gameshows we see on TV, and we’ve all probably wished to be there onstage and have a shot at winning the special prizes. Well, there’s now an easier way to experience the same kind of thrill right at the comfort of your own home!

Kumu, the first and only Filipino social TV network, brings you entertainment that is beyond what’s possible with our traditional television experience. Its innovative livestreaming technology allows for a seamless interaction between content creators and their audience, making it the newest social media to watch out for.

Armed with pure creativity and the intention to genuinely make people laugh, the app has produced shows in record speed, with ten fun gameshows in just ten months.

Here are top ten gameshows accessible through your smartphone:

  1. Quiz Mo Ko!

For those who haven’t tried competing in quiz bees during their childhood, you might want to try out the flagship gameshow of Kumu! Quiz Mo Ko is hosted by Maui Manalo, Carla Cab, Chef Kia, Doc Miles, and none other than KC Montero himself. With questions ranging from easy to difficult, and the added excitement of competing against other people online, this gameshow is sure to keep boredom at bay! Watch out for special episodes, like the one where they gave away 1 million pesos with guest host Christine Reyes. QMK recently celebrated their 100th episode, truly a gameshow that tickles the curiosity of the Kumunity!

Cash Prize: varies

2. Winner Winner Lechon Dinner

Before your tummy growls in hunger, let me warn you that the prize is not an actual lechon dinner. Coined after PUBG’s “winner winner chicken dinner” phrase (which, legend says, came from Las Vegas casinos), this gameshow features various party games hosted by The Art of Chill Studios—an artist collective born out of like-minded  livestreamers from the app.

Cash Prize: P5,000

3. Sing Tanong

You’d probably guess correctly what this show is all about. And yes—it’s a musical trivia game! But on top of that, this gameshow also features musically talented couple Earl Cabatingan and Ffyona Baas who will gladly sing their hearts out for you! They originally started livestreaming to pay for college tuition, and now, these homegrown talents host Sing Tanong for their musically-inclined viewers. After playing this game, you might have a better appreciation for Filipino arts and music.

Cash Prize: P10,000

4. Pinoys Doing Stuffs

Are you familiar with that odd satisfaction you get in seeing other people do fun and wild dares? This intentionally misspelled gameshow aims to give you just that, or if you’re bold enough, you can be on the spotlight yourself. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to do the bidding of hosts Chef Kia, Marga Manalo, and Carla Cab.

Cash Prize: P10,000

5. Nosebleed Show

That is what’s in store for you in this show that features passion projects and advocacies of modern-day entrepreneurs. Hosted by Margaux Sue Cortez, this talkshow is also a trivia game where the best listeners have better chances of winning!

Cash Prize: P10,000
