TV5 launches the biggest reality programs this 2012

MANILA, Philippines – This  2012, the Kapatid network is set to turn “dreams” into “reality”. TV5 ushers in the New Year with a formidable line-up of reality programs that promises to shake up Filipinos’ TV viewing experience.

Headlining these new shows is the much awaited and highly anticipated Extreme Makeover: Home Edition Philippines. The reality series franchise, originally produced by Endemol, follows the original format of providing home renovations to less fortunate families and communities within a span of seven days. It seems like an impossible task, but with the help of the show’s dedicated design team and kind-hearted volunteers, EM:HE will bring new homes and new hope to the lives of deserving families.

For its Philippine debut, the design team will be led and hosted by the country’s “King of Reality TV” Paolo Bediones, who will be joined by Tessa Prieto-Valdez and Divine Lee.

TV5 meanwhile lines up another entertaining reality show in Dancing Nation, a unique and inspiring dance-off competition that unites the whole community toward a common cause.

Recognizing the Filipinos’ singing prowess, the network will embark on a nationwide search for true talent in Kanta Pilipinas.  

Bringing variety into the mix, TV5 has also acquired two big-title reality game shows: The Biggest Game Show in Asia and The Amazing Race Philippines. The Biggest Game Show in Asia will have teams from four South East Asian countries (Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Philippines) competing against each other through games and obstacle courses. Hosted by Richard Gomez and Joey de Leon, the show was recently shot at a purposely built production hub in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Fans of The Amazing Race franchise can expect the same level of heart-pumping adventure and thrilling challenges with the all-new The Amazing Race Philippines.

Finally, intrigue, drama, and titillating characters will surely spice up your viewing experience with Temptation Island: Dare to Win. Focusing on a group of beautiful young men and women marooned in a beautiful island, this show is inspired by Regal Entertainment’s ‘80s cult classic Temptation Island.
