Beginning February 6, Kapuso viewers are in for a treat as everyday people take on the challenge of a lifetime with show-stopping performances in an attempt to be hailed as a great pretender on GMA Network’s newest reality game show ‘Catch Me Out Philippines.’

Based on the popular UK original and a first in Philippine entertainment, Catch Me Out Philippines follows two amateur contestants who will go through weeks of intensive training with mentors and each with a different performance to master – from aerial silk dance to beatboxing – aiming to trick the viewers and celebrity catchers into believing that they are professional entertainers while performing alongside actual experts. The impostor who manages to dupe the most members of the audience is hailed as winner.



 
Catch Me Out Philippines is headlined by no less than well-loved comedian Jose Manalo who is known for his top-notch hosting skills that can liven up any crowd. Joining him is comedienne-singer Kakai Bautista and Kapuso hunk Derrick Monasterio whose witty banter as Celebrity Spotters, together with ten Celebrity Catchers, is sure to amuse and perhaps confuse the viewers in guessing who among the performers is the amateur.

Jose entices viewers on what to look forward to in this exciting new offering of Kapuso Network, “Isa sa aabangan nila ‘yung routine naming tatlo, kung gaano kami ka-relax sa isa’t isa. Sa GMA rin, thank you, kasi maganda ‘yung pagkaka-mix noong mga tao na pinili nila. Napakagaan katrabaho. At the same time, pag-iisipin ka talaga as a viewer. Ang ipinapakita rito sa show ay may mga tao pala na kayang turuan. ‘Yung parang akala nila hindi ko kaya, kaya ko naman pala, na kapag sumayaw ako parang propesyonal na. Sabi ko nga, galing na ako sa maraming auditions at kapag sinalang ko nakikita kong may mali pa rin. Dito, halatang nanggaling sila sa napakalupit na training para gumalaw sila na kagaya noong mga kasabay nilang propesyonal.”

Meanwhile, let's all watch these videos for further details of the show:

Kakai, in turn, expresses her excitement upon being chosen as part of Catch Me Out Philippines, “Noong nalaman ko ‘yung role, na-excite talaga ako. Kasi kaming mga komedyante, people don’t get to see our other side. ‘Yung marunong din sila, hindi lang sila nagpapatawa. Na-excite ako na I will get the chance to state my opinion about something that I really love, which is entertainment, like insights ko sa performances. I’ve been in theater for 20 years now and in showbiz, nabigyan talaga ako ng chance. I’m very grateful that people will see a different side of me, hindi lang makulit, but may say rin sa mga bagay specially sa mundo ng entertainment and that excites me every taping.”

Meanwhile, Derrick recounts how he relates to the show, “Actually, mare-relate ko ang Catch Me Out sa life ko in the sense na I was an amateur before and then I trained with one of the most prestigious choirs in the world. Na-train ako sa kung anong kaya kong gawin ngayon. Before I entered showbiz, noong nasa choir pa ako, pumupunta kami sa iba’t ibang bahay para kumanta at mag-entertain ng tao. ‘Yun ‘yung similarity ng humble beginnings ko with the show.”

Be awed by surprising performances and take a guess who among the performers is the greatest pretender in ‘Catch Me Out Philippines’ – under the helm of esteemed director Rico Gutierrez – starting February 6, Saturdays, 7:15pm, on GMA-7 and February 7 on GMA Pinoy TV.

Kapuso viewers from across the globe can also catch their favorite Kapuso shows via GMA's international channels GMA Pinoy TV, GMA Life TV, and GMA News TV International. For the program guide, visit www.gmapinoytv.com. 02/06/2021 (TV Series Craze)
