PIE Launches Luis Manzano, New Game Masters, Shows, and More Ways to Win via Pindot PIEnalo Block

Updated: Nov 24, 2023

Changes have been brewing at rewarding interactive game platform PIE with a new lineup of Game Masters and gamified primetime programming. More than ever, KaTroPIEs have bigger chances of winning instant prizes with every show every night of the week.

The first of many welcome changes is the arrival of premiere host Luis Manzano as Game Master of new weekend show “Tamang Hinala.” Luis, a veteran of game, talk, and variety shows on local television, is bringing his years of hosting expertise—and comic chops, too—to the platform.

Luis was formally welcomed through the aptly named Lucky PIE Time Media and Trade Conference held at Sequoia Hotel in Quezon City last August 30. He was presented to friends from the press, trade partners, and executives from KROMA Entertainment and ABS-CBN.

Newly-minted Game Masters

Fellow new Game Masters Robi Domingo from upcoming show “Watchawin” and Eric Nicolas from recently launched “Mukhang Perya” were also in attendance.

Jolina Magdangal and Bayani Agbayani, the new Game Master tandem at “Sinong Manok Mo” and Negi of “Mukhang Perya” sent a video message for the afternoon’s guests. Game Master Melai Cantiveros likewise delivered virtual greetings on behalf of “Ur Da Boss.”

Luis, along with Robi, Jolina, and other aforementioned hosts are PIE’s newly-minted Game Masters, taking on anchor roles at their respective programs in the Pindot PIEnalo Block. These Game Masters are joined by PIE Jocks—up and coming hosts that help facilitate games for studio participants and interactive experiences for online KaTroPIEs.

New Primetime Habit on PIE during weekdays

The platform’s revamped daily primetime programming, the Pindot PIEnalo block, starts at 6:00 PM. Each program in the block is interactive and gamified, offering entertainment and more chances to win cash and prizes for KaTroPIEs.

The Pindot PIEnalo block is bookended by recently launched program “Mukhang Perya'' from Monday to Friday. Leading the show’s weekday 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. run is Game Master Eric Nicolas. He is joined by PIE Jock Zendee and Freshe and Angelica of BB Gurlz.

In “Mukhang Perya,” studio players win prizes as they take a stab at classic perya games—win or lose—while online KaTroPIEs can win as much as P30,000 daily by participating through their devices. Through the show, ang paboritong pinipilahan sa ating barangay, mas pinadali na sa PIE.

PIE anchor show “Ur Da Boss” returns for a new season from Monday to Friday at 7:00 PM. Inimitable Game Master Melai Cantiveros and PIE Jock Jennica Garcia are at it once again, offering online KaTroPIEs—fondly called “Mga Boss”—a chance to win as much as P20,000 daily as job orders become increasingly challenging for studio players or “mga trabahador.” The show’s battlecry is Kumubra ng pasahod sa bawat tanong at utos! Para PINDOT PIENALO KA sa UR DA BOSS!

Premiering on Monday, September 11 at 8:15 p.m. is “Watchawin,” the game show where our KaTroPIEs are strongly advised to watch with Galing!

Game Master Robi Domingo shows a string of “Watchables” or short videos to the studio participant and online KaTroPIES and later asks them to recall details and elements about what had just been played.

Watchawin is a test of one’s attention to detail and observation skills. Up to P60,000 each week are up for grabs for eagle-eyed online KaTroPIEs who answer correctly using their devices.

“Mukhang Perya” returns at 9:00 p.m, with PIE Jocks Gillian Vicencio, Gello Marquez, Seham Daghlas, Rans Rifol, and Cianne Dominguez joining BB Gurlz Freshe and Angelica in closing out the Pindot PIEnalo block.

At PIE, Weekends Are for Winning

The Pindot PIEnalo block continues on Saturdays and Sundays with the 6:00 PM and 9:00 PM editions of “Mukhang Perya.” Game Master Negi, PIE Jocks Nicki Morena and Kevin Montillano, and BB Gurlz Freshe and Angelica bring on the fun and keep the cash and prizes coming for our perya-loving KaTroPIEs.

Beginning Saturday, September 9 at 6:30 PM, Game Master Luis Manzano will indulge KaTroPIEs in an exciting mystery game through the new show “Tamang Hinala.” It has a fairly straightforward proposition yet poses a fun, mind-boggling challenge: Manood, mag-imbestiga, at manalo.

Joining Luis in Tamang Hinala is PIE Jock Karina Bautista. Together, they report from the scene of the crime and allow viewers to examine evidence and determine who among the studio players are guilty or not guilty. Online KaTroPIEs can make like a true detective, investigate, and get a chance to win up to P30,000 by exercising their best judgment through their devices.

Back for a new season is “Sinong Manok Mo” where PIE mainstay and Game Master Jolina Magdangal and new Game Master Bayani Agbayani lead the bardagulan experience in and out of the studio. Together PIE Jocks Jackie Gonzaga, Patsy Reyes, Jeremy G, Anji Salvacion, and Nonong Ballinan, this interactive game show gives online KaTroPIEs the chance to outsmart and outbeat one another in friendly competition.

Ultimately, “Sinong Manok Mo” encourages KaTroPIEs to exercise their power to choose as well as a chance to win up to P15,000 as long as their “manok” wins!
