Bonakid Pre-School Ready Set Laban 2: First Episode Winner

MANILA, Philipines – Jolen, tumbang preso, patintero – these are just some of the classic Filipino games moms today grew up with; games now featured in the second season of the award-winning game show on GMA, Bonakid Pre-School’s Ready Set Laban! Now hosted by one of the country’s most sought after hosts, Drew Arellano, along with celebrity mommy co-hosts, the fun-filled mom and kid game show aired its first episode last October 5.

Joining Drew for the pilot episode of Bonakid Pre-School’s Ready Set Laban Season 2 was none other than mom of one, Julia Clarete. Both hosts were very enthusiastic to kick off the first episode of the show, cheering on the first mom and kid tandem of the new season, mommy Karelle Marquez and daughter Keiley.

A veteran of the show, Karelle compares their experience last year to this season’s. “Mas physically challenging yung ngayon. Mas mahirap siya pero it was a very fun experience and bonding for me and Keiley (It’s more physically challenging now. It’s harder, but it was a very fun experience and bonding for me and Keiley),” she shares.

The mom of 5-year-old Keiley was also astounded with the strength and perseverance her daughter revealed during the show. “She exceeded my expectations kasi kahit 5 years old lang siya na very feminine and petite, nagawa pa rin niya ng sobrang galling (She exceeded my expectations because even if she’s only 5 years old, and very feminine and petite, she was able to do everything very well).”

Karelle and Keiley played the Palayok Smash and Triple Boost Challenge as their challenges for the first episode. Both agreed that while the games were not as easy as they seemed, it was a great bonding experience for the two of them. “Nag-enjoy lang kami. Bonusnalang talaga ang prizes at malaking blessing para sa amin. (We just enjoyed ourselves. The prizes were just an added bonus and a big blessing for us).” Aside from taking home the prizes from the show, Keiley also received gifts and toys inspired by her favorite movie, Frozen.

Karelle emphasizes that proper nutrition is one of her top priorities in ensuring her little girl continues to grow as a Batang May Laban.“Importante na kumain ng maayos. Kailangan ko tutukan pati pag-inom ng milk and water regularly, and vitamins to boost her immune system para maging healthy and happy siya (It’s important to eat right. I need to pay close attention that she drinks milk and water regularly, and vitamins to boost her immune system so she become healthy and happy),” she shares.

Ready, Set, Laban season 2 airs every Sunday at 10:45 am after iBilib, only on GMA Network.
