MANILA, Philippines – Kapuso actress Jennylyn Mercado on Thursday visited ABS-CBN to try her luck at winning instant millions on game show “Kapamilya, Deal or No Deal,” which is hosted by her boyfriend, actor Luis Manzano.
Mercado, who has been a GMA Network talent since 2003, said she was nervous in treading unfamiliar ground when she visited the ABS-CBN studios as a guest player on “Deal or No Deal.”
“Syempre different station, so medyo iba ‘yung feeling, kinakabahan, nakakapanibago. Iba ‘yung mga taong nakakasalubong mo,” Mercado said in an interview with ABS-CBN News.
Accompanied by her friends, mother, and Alex Jazz, her son with actor Patrick Garcia, Mercado took the “Deal or No Deal” stage after she was introduced by Manzano as someone close to his heart.
“Ngayon ko lang naramdaman ‘tong nerbyos na ito,” she said, when asked by Manzano how she feels being on the show.
Her guest appearance on the game show is one of Mercado’s gifts to her boyfriend, who will celebrate his 32nd birthday on April 21.
“[I wish him] good health and more projects,” she said. “Kahit sino naman gustong magtagal ang relasyon, so sana talaga magtagal kami.”
“Kapamilya, Deal or No Deal” airs Saturdays on ABS-CBN after “TV Patrol Weekend.”
