MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – It’s Kris Aquino’s big television comeback as host of a prime-time show, and it is star-studded! Well, one star: Vice President Leni Robredo.
The show is titled, “Is a Fifth Grader Smarter Than Leni Robredo?” It will be directed by Cannes Best Director Winner Brillante Mendoza.
The show’s concept involves questions to be asked by Aquino of Leni Robredo and selected fifth graders from various schools in Metro Manila. Questions will cover history, math, economics and politics. If a question is answered incorrectly by Robredo, and correctly by the fifth grader, the kid will be awarded a P10,000 scholarship prize.
The Adobo Chronicles learned that if Robredo doesn’t know the answer to a question, she can phone a friend, Georgina Hernandez.
