Celebrity player Gretchen Barretto reacts after host Luis Manzano opens her chosen briefcase which contains P2 million.

MANILA, Philippines – Actress-socialite Gretchen Barretto missed the chance to increase her wealth by P2 million when she gave up her chosen briefcase in the hit game show “Kapamilya Deal or No Deal.”

Barretto was the first celebrity player to participate in the anniversary special where she entered into a deal with the Banker who offered her P747,600. After briefcases with huge amounts were opened, Barretto became feisty with the Banker, who then made the big-money offer. She accepted not knowing that her chosen briefcase actually contained the P2 million.

The game show hosted by Luis Manzano added another P1 million prize in its money tree to mark its first anniversary this month.

On Saturday’s episode, actor Gerald Anderson will be the special celebrity player for the month-long anniversary special of “Kapamilya Deal or No Deal,” which airs every Saturday after “TV Patrol Weekend” on ABS-CBN.
