MANILA, Philippines – Dubbed as the Hari ng Sablay, comedian Bearwin Meily (photo) always fails to predict the amount his briefcase contains whenever a fellow Lucky Star plays in the hit game show Kapamilya Deal or No Deal (KDOND).

But all of that changed last March 23 when his gut feel turned out to be right as his chosen briefcase number 14 contained the P1M jackpot, making him the first celebrity millionaire this season.

It was an intense game as it boiled down to only two amounts in the money board — P100,000 and P1M.

Bearwin got emotional when he declined the Banker’s offer of P614,000 for the sake of entertaining the viewers.

“I am here to play. From the very beginning this briefcase was just assigned to me. It’s just money. P614,000 can be gone in just a month. I want to play,” said Bearwin before pressing the No Deal button.

Excitement and joy then filled the studio as host Luis Manzano finally opened Bearwin’s briefcase. The Lucky Stars immediately ran up the stage and congratulated him.

“All I want for our episodes is just for us and for our viewers to have fun. It’s not about the money,” he explained.

Will one of the remaining Lucky Stars bag the jackpot in the coming episodes?

Kapamilya Deal or No Deal airs weekday afternoons at 5 p.m. on ABS-CBN’s Kapamilya Gold.
