GMA Network’s reality game show ‘Catch Me Out Philippines’ makes a big comeback with even more spectacular performances from the amateurs and a stellar roster of celebrity guests beginning Saturday, July 31.

The show is hosted by no less than well-loved comedian Jose Manalo. Adding more fun and sometimes biting commentary after the performances are Celebrity Spotters – Kapuso hunk Derrick Monasterio and Comedy Concert Queen Aiai Delas Alas.

Following the show’s three-month-long hiatus, Jose teases viewers on what to expect in their much-awaited return, “Marami po kayong dapat abangan dito sa bagong episodes ng Catch Me Out Philippines. Ang mga guest spotters natin ay may ipapakitang mga talent na ikabibigla ng lahat dahil hindi natin aakalain na magagawa nila. ‘Yung mga bago rin nating amateurs, marami rin silang inihandang performances na ikalilito talaga ng viewers.”

Derrick, in turn, reveals the great camaraderie he has established with his co-host despite not seeing each other for months, “‘Yung personality kasi ni Kuya Jose ‘pag nakita mo siya, parang ang tagal niyo nang magkakilala. Nandoon na agad ‘yung banter so nadadala namin ‘yun on-cam. Nakakapanibago pero ‘yung mga kasama ko naman very professional. Basta may bond ka lang talaga with your co-actors, walang adjustments. Na-miss lang talaga namin ‘yung isa’t isa.”

For this Saturday, international stage performer Mark Bautista joins in the fun as guest Celebrity Spotter. This week’s Celebrity Catchers include some of the Network’s brightest young stars: Ysabel Ortega, Thea Astley, Jamir Zabarte, Miggy Tolentino, Jennifer Maravilla along with five previous winners of the show.

Two amateurs are set to compete for this week – an accountant slash financial analyst who has trained to learn Wushu, and a college student who will attempt to dance on Rollerskates. They will perform separately with three professionals in their respective acts.

Using a gadget, 10 Catchers – who are present in the studio, are given the unenviable task of guessing who the amateur is among the performers in each act. The amateur who convinces more Catchers that he or she is a professional wins the competition and the P100,000 cash prize.

Don’t miss the show-stopping performances of amateurs with the return of Catch Me Out Philippines – produced by GMA Network’s Entertainment Group and under the helm of esteemed director Rico Gutierrez – this Saturday, 7:15PM right after Pepito Manaloto: Ang Unang Kuwento on GMA-7.
