Just recently watched BET NG BAYAN Grand Finals and all I can say that the show was great! The production as well as the contestants really did awesome entertainment. It was hosted by no other than Ms. Regine Velasquez-Alcasid and Alden Richard. Coming from Mindanao, I really like programs such as this. Not that I want for my countrymen to fight against each other but I love the concept of healthy competition among them.
Amazingly, GMA Network did a great job in putting up such a show. Searching the whole Philippines for real talents that will ultimately be announced to the world as the BET NG BAYAN is so fitting. How I wish they will continue to have this kind of talent shows. They go to places to give contestants with no funding a chance to show their talents to the rest of the nation.

But before anything else, let me say my warmest congratulations to the winners:
Bet sa Sayawan – Don Juan (Team Visayas)
Bet sa Kakaibang Talento – Jason Sobremonte (Team Luzon)
Bet sa Kantahan – Hannah Precillas (Team Visayas)
The judges during the talent show was Maestro Louie Ocampo, Pop Diva Kuh Ledesma, and Asia’s Nightingale Lani Misalucha. Though there were no winners from Team Mindanao, I am still thankful that GMA Network gave my fellow Mindanaoans a chance to showcase their talents to the whole Philippines. If there will be a BET NG BAYAN Season 2 for 2015, I hope that a person or group from Mindanao will also win. ^_^
