MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Several weeks ago, Philippines President Rodrigo Roa Duterte announced that he would allot an hour-long morning show on the government’s television station, PTV4, to communicate directly with the Filipino people. Well, that television program will soon become reality — as in reality TV.

Presidential Communications Secretary Martin Andanar today unveiled the format of Duterte’s show, which in reality, is a game show.  The title? “You Ask Me One, I’ll Ask You Two!”

During the commercial-free TV show, Duterte will field questions from the television audience, and for each question he answers, he will ask two questions.

Andanar said that Duterte was very confident his answer to each question will embarrass the questioner, while the answers to his two questions will find the questioner totally in agreement with the president.

For the game show’s premiere episode, Duterte’s guests will be representatives from the United Nations, United States and European Union.

Here’s the full announcement from the Office of the President.
