Willing Willie gets axed, repackaged with new title but same hosts

TV5 has dropped ‘Willing Willie’ and replaced it with a new show called ‘Wiltime Bigtime’ which will air starting Saturday, May 14. It will still be hosted and co-produced by Willie Revillame with Shalani Soledad as co-host.

It’s not only the title that has been changed, the description too. While ‘Willing Willie’ was commonly mentioned as “a primetime game show,” ‘Wiltime Bigtime’ will be known as “a primetime variety show” which means it now has a wider scope.

The new show also promises bigger prizes and fresher, well-thought games and segments. Willie's fans will be able to know about the entire show, what it's going to offer, once TV5 and Wil Productions release an Official Statement on May 12.

In the meantime, the Kapatid network started to air Wiltime Bigtime’s teaser. Here’s the video courtesy of YouTube:
