BOOM! is a game show by Keshet International. The objective of BOOM! is to find all the right answers and cut the respective wires of a "bomb". In the Philippine stripped-down version on Eat Bulaga!, there are three "bombs": questions with four correct answers out of five, six, and seven choices, respectively. Three team members deal with one "bomb" each. Each "wire" must be cut in 15 seconds.
In today's episode, the first bomb involved finding song titles, while the second one involved identifying the four siblings among six people. They had success in the first bomb but not the second (all four siblings had names that start with "Jo" and had the same dish served on their birthdays).
The third bomb was about "10-Year Challenge". While not directly related to Millionaire, with this "bomb" having four correct choices out of seven, once three correct choices were answered, four choices remain, with one of these correct.
The contestant has indeed cut three correct answers, all related to the Philippine community (devastation of Typhoon Ketsana, 30th anniversary of Eat Bulaga, and Corazon Aquino's death). This leaves them in a situation that is basically equivalent to answering this question without any lifelines (after some thought before the timer starts):
|Question on BOOM! (10-Year Challenge) ― ₱120,000 (0:15 time limit)|
|Which of these things happened in the year 2009?|
|• A: First Twitter tweet was published||• B: Prince William and Kate's wedding|
|• C: First Instagram photo was posted||• D: Facebook added the "Like" button|
|Contestants leave with ₱40,000|
|They already had ₱40,000, so they are playing for an extra ₱80,000 (around $1,500).|
Although no one else replied here before the answer was revealed, I will not delete this as of the moment so that the Fun and Games board does not become empty again.
