Vic Sotto to Host �Who Wants to Be a Millionaire� on TV5

Vic Sotto is a living proof to the saying "If its meant to be, it is really meant to be."

After Richard Gomez declined TV5's offer to host their newly franchised game show "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire", another replacement (which according to some showbiz insider is much better choise) already inked a deal with Philippines third biggest TV station to host the new season of Who Wants to Be A Millionaire.

This is Vic Sotto�s first hosting stint outside of T.A.P.E., Inc., the producer of the longest-running noontime show Eat Bulaga. He will be joining his best buddy Joey de Leon in the TV5 family. Joey is the host of "Wow Mali!" new season.

Who Wants to Be a Millionaire was first franchised by Viva TV way back in 2000 with Christopher de Leon as the first game master. It was aired on IBC 13 until 2002 when its studio was razed by a fire. It was a hit among Pinoy televiewers back then.

Seven years after, the popularity of the said game show was revived by the Oscar-winning film Slumdog Millionaire. To date, more than 60 countries have their own version of the show. And this year, the Philippines will have its new version, too, courtesy of TV5.
