Tek It or Leave It: Channel 5’s new game show
Channel Five has brought you numerous live programs over the years that net cash to viewers. And this coming Wednesday just in time for the Christmas, the new entertainment show “Tek It or leave it” will be launched. It’s a game of chance and luck which will have audience participation and thousands of dollars as prize money. Jose Sanchez met the new host today.
Jose Sanchez, Reporting And recent income earners for participants came from KTV and this year’s first Duets. The newest is a game show in which people can win thousands of dollars per show. The host of the new show, Angela Gegg, explains how you can take home some big bucks.
Angela Gegg, Host, Tek it or Leave It “Alright Jose you wanna know, Tek It or Leave. It is a brand new game show Channel Five is bringing to Belize. Nothing like this has ever been seen before. I know a lot of people say that right. But when I saw the set for Tek It or Leave It I really realized, like wow, this is gonna be something totally different. It’s totally unique to Belize and it’s gonna be very interactive with our audience. And if you guys don’t know yet, we are gonna be giving away five thousand dollars which is a pretty good amount of cash. Tek It or Leave It is kind of a little spin off of a little show called Deal or No Deal whereby you have cases up on a board and you have contestants up on stage. That contestant will actually pick one case. Maybe you have a lucky number, they have pickni, maybe they want five, something along those lines. They’ll end up picking one case, and then we’ll work from there depleting cases off the board. Throughout the depletion process the banker will be calling in and giving me an offer. You see what I mean. And it’s up to the contestant and the audience hypeness to see whether they are going to take the offer or if they are going to leave it and play on for the five thousand dollars in cash. Should in case the five thousand dollars gets wiped off the board, we have different dollar amounts, for example thirty-five hundred, three thousand, two thousand. So even if the five thousand gets wiped off the board they still have a pretty good chance of a good amount of cash.”
The contestants will be selected from the studio audience whose entrance tickets automatically make them eligible for participation.
Angela Gegg “If you are a contestant and if you are eighteen years or older, that ticket stub basically gives you entrance into the contest. So once you are an audience member you have a chance to be up on stage and take home some cash and I think that’s a pretty good deal. And I want to invite you to all to come on down on Wednesday because maybe you can take home five thousand dollars in cash.”
