Kapamilya stars clash in competitive games 

ABS-CBN takes fun to a whole new level with its newest talk-comedy-game show Celebrity Playtime, which pits celebrities against each other in exciting and amusing games every Saturday.

Hosted by Billy Crawford, the program features celebrity players competing in house party games and winning prizes – all in the spirit of having fun.

Billy said the program urges viewers to bond with their friends and family. 

 “These days, most of us rely on smartphones and social media for interaction. We want to encourage viewers to spend time, connect, and have fun with each other the best way – face-to-face,” said Billy.

Every week, two teams of celebrity players will play three house party games about popular culture. After the third game, the team that earns the most number of points wins and advances to the bonus round where they can earn an additional cash prize.

The fun does not just stop there, as these two teams will play in a road-to-three series.

 The first team to win three weeks will be declared the defending champion and will be playing against another “celebri-team.”

Featured in the program’s first laughter-filled games were Melai Cantiveros, Nyoy Volante, Edgar Allan Guzman, and Karla Estrada of Your Face Sounds Familiar’s first season and Long Mejia, Dennis Padilla, Eric Nicolas, and Epi Quizon, some of the Lucky Stars of Kapamilya Deal Or No Deal.
