MANILA -- The family of rapper Rommel "Bendeatha" Tejada, a member of Filipino hip-hop group "Salbakuta," won P255,000 on the hit game show "Bet On Your Baby" on Saturday.
Tejada, along with his wife Madel and daughter Girlie, chose to take home the amount instead of opting for their last try at the grand cash prize, which stands at P1 million.
"Para sa akin, kuntento na ako sa ganyang halaga. Kumbaga, diyan ako magsisimula, papalaguin ko na lang 'yan para sa mag-ina at anak ko," he said.
Asked what he wanted for his daughter, Tejada said: "Pangarap ko po talaga eh mabigyan siya ng magandang edukasyon kasi 'yun naman talaga 'yung reason eh. Nagtra-trabaho ako para sa kanya."
"Bet On Your Baby," which is part of ABS-CBN's "Yes! Weekend" offerings, airs every Saturday after "TV Patrol: Weekend."
