Starting out as a dancer, VJ, commercial model, and former housemate of Pinoy Big Brother, Yassi Pressman was already becoming one of top names in the showbiz industry, but it was her role as Alyanna Arevalo-Dalisay, in FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano that made her a household name.
She was one of the longest mainstays of the teleserye before her character was killed earlier this year finally taking her off the show. As expected there were various rumors circulating, but Yassi made it clear that it was her decision to leave the longest-running tv series.
During the virtual presscon of TV5’s upcoming show Rolling In It Philippines, which Yassi will be hosting, she explained her side of the story.
Yassi said it was all about the the lock-in tapings and conflict with her schedule.
“Dahil mahirap na rin po ituloy yung lock-in kaya po sobrang thankful ako sa Dreamscape [Ang Probinsyano producer], sa ABS-CBN, all of my bosses, especially kay Coco Martin na gumawa ng script at nangako siyang magkakaroon ng magandang exit si Alyana.
“Actually excited na may halong kaba at saya,” “I’m excited kasi it’s something new for me. Masaya ako na I have something new to offer to my followers. Pero siyempre medyo kabado din ako as I haven’t tried hosting a game show before.”
Yassi said that she got some hosting tips from her friend Robi Domingo. “Robi Domingo gave me so many pointers when it comes to hosting a game show. Sabi niya just enjoy the show and be yourself.”
Produced by VIVA Entertainment, Rolling In It Philippines debuts on Philippine television on June 5 hosted by British-Filipina model and actress Yassi Pressman. Pressman, fresh off the success of her acting stint in FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano, goes back to her hosting roots and is now taking centerstage as the game show’s host.
Rolling In It Philippines is a luck-based game show and contestants can be twice luckier as they are given a chance to play with a celebrity partner to help them through the rounds and win. Our weekends will surely be star-studded as new sets of celebrities team up with our contestants weekly for the chance to win up to Php 2,000,000.
The teams will test their luck through the roll of a coin on a giant arcade machine and will compete through a series of questions and choices together. They can opt to PLAY to roll again and answer another question, increasing their chances to earn, or to PASS the opportunity to a different pair, especially when the risk of losing their earnings is at stake. The pair who earns the most money after 9 questions advances to the Jackpot Round.
