After making contestants face their worse nightmares in Fear Factor to finding the best homegrown Talents in Talentadong Pinoy, Ryan Agoncillo gets thrown out in the streets, albeit voluntarily as he assumes the role of Manong Driver, in AXN Philippines upcoming reality series Cash Cab–the only gameshow on wheels.

In the 13 episode series, popular actor Ryan Agoncillo will assume the role of cab driver and show host, driving passengers to their destination while quizzing them on general knowledge. Questions asked during the ride will start easy and become trickier with contestants winning cash prizes for each correct answer. An incorrect answer means a strike, and contestants have up to three strikes before they are booted out of the cab and onto the street, no matter where they are. Contestants will have two “shout outs” for help if they are stumped on a question and can either call a friend or ask a random stranger for the answer.M2400647

In the four-minute teaser for Cash Cab Philippines” shown to media guests last week, Ryan Agoncillo managed to pick up some very famous –his wife Judy Ann Santos and kids Yohan and Lucho.

After welcoming the three members of his family to the Cash Cab Ryan then proceeded to ask some fairly easy trivia questions, including which member of One Direction recently left the group, who were the five emotions featured in the animated film, “Inside Out” and the three lolas in the AlDub Kalyeserye.cash-cab

Juday, Yohan and Lucho easily answered all of Ryan’s questions ending up P9,000 in cash before getting off the cab. But not all contestants will be as lucky as the will become more difficult as the contestants keep winning cash for each correct answer.

An incorrect answer means a strike, and contestants have up to three strikes before they are booted out of the cab and onto the street, no matter where they are. Contestants will have two “shout outs” for help if they are stumped on a question and can either call a friend or ask a random stranger for the answer.M240026
