MANILA, Philippines – Actors Enchong Dee and Kean Cipriano won big during their turn as celebrity contestants in ABS-CBN game show "Kapamilya, Deal or No Deal."

During its Saturday episode, the Luis Manzano-hosted game show welcomed the cast of Star Cinema's "barkada" film "The Reunion," with Dee and Cipriano trying their luck at winning millions.

After several rounds of defeat and exhilaration, the two left it to fate, by playing rock-paper-scissors, whether to open the final briefcase or not.

The gamble paid off, however, as the two became the first millionaire contestant of this season of "Deal or No Deal."

Their luck has also made its way to the box office, as their film "The Reunion" continues to turn in high earnings since its premiere last week.

Directed by Frasco Mortiz, "The Reunion" premiered in Philippine theaters on Wednesday.

Also top-billed by Kapamilya actors Xian Lim and Enrique Gil, the "barkada" flick tells the story of a group of friends who find themselves at a crossroads in their professional and personal lives, seven years after graduating from high school.

Reflecting the characters' adventures and misadventures in the film are the lyrics of Eraserheads, known for such hits like "Ligaya," "With A Smile" and "Ang Huling El Bimbo" in the 1990s.
