MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Leni Robredo’s media career is being raised one notch, from hosting a radio show to hosting a prime-time television game show on ABS-CBN.
The new show is titled “The Price of Rice.” It is a take-off from the popular American TV show, “The Price is Right.”
The idea came from Robredo herself after she was quoted blaming President Rodrigo Duterte for the problems the country is facing, including the rising prices of rice, the Philippines’ main staple. Posts on social media ridiculed the Vice President’s math skills when she supposedly said P40 per kilo of rice x 4 weeks equaled P1,600.
The new game show is open to all Filipinos — 5th graders and up.
