Bet ng Bayan: South Luzon Showdown

Naga City - Just in time for the Pe├▒afrancia Festival, GMA 7 has pulled the right strings for Bet ng Bayan's Regional Showdown held at the Plaza Quezon last September 21. Upon watching the episode last Sunday, who would have thought that the stage was held at our Plaza? GMA-7 was in full force for the Bet ng Bayan's regional showdown with amazing stage set, numerous cameras complete with crane and everything in between. 

The event was star-studded with hosts Regine Velasquez, Asia's Songbird and Alden Richards, GMA's prime leading man and with judges Kuh Ledesma, Louie Ocampo and our very own Imelda Papin.

Reaching out to talents. "Bet ng Bayan is a reality talent search that will showcase the exceptional local Filipino talents from different regions to find the nation’s best. The search is open to all Filipino singers, dancers and other novelty performers. There are three categories in the competition – bet na singer/s, bet na dancer/s and bet na kakaibang talento." While yes reality talent shows are almost of the same theme from the local and international scene, Bet ng Bayan has made it more practical to local talents. It's GMA who will come close to talents and not the other way around. 

A fair and square, 3-in-1 show. With three categories in the competition, the judges will be able to place their bets based on one kind of talent only, thus making the comparisons and criticisms more objective. There will be no overlapping on who is a better performer from among the three categories.  It's like getting a total performer from among the singers, the dancers and the novelty performers. Across the three talents, it's really quite not fair to be judging three different kinds of skills and strengths.
