Spending hours watching TV shows on open channels is almost in the past. In the picture “Million Shaw”reproduction
The success of Chau de Milhau, led by Silvio Santos, in the early 2000s is undeniable. Thousands of Brazilians stopped by to answer questions posed by the presenter and test their knowledge, whether they were watching the show live, or playing board and computer games. For those feeling nostalgic, a new “Show do Milhão” show kicks off this Friday, led by Celso Portioli, at 23:15, on SBT.
And if in 12 years the world has changed, then the program has also undergone some modifications, but while preserving its essence. In partnership with Pic Pay, the new “Show do Milhão” program continues with the question-and-answer format, in which the participant must answer 16 questions and can count on four types of help: cards, boards, college students and jumps. The main difference lies in the way you participate. From any amount over R$50 paid through the app, the person generates a number that can be withdrawn to go into the program.
Without Silvio Santos
One of the most important changes in the return of the show is the change of presenter. Replacing Silvio Santos is no easy feat, but Celso ensures that it gets out of hand. “It’s an emotion. I’ve always been a viewer of Show do Milhão and when Pelego (director) called me, the first question I asked him was: ‘But is Silvio (Santos) aware of that?’ He said, “Of course it was his choice.” I was very honored. I was worried too,” notes Celso, who also spoke of the emotion of the moment:
“When you live, you don’t really feel what’s going on. For me, it’s a job like any other. Presenting this program is a dream of building a career. I’ve always dreamed. I started behind the camera and then progressed. I did small, medium and large programs. I replaced the presenter. I feel That this is the profession that takes place. And SBT knows that when you need it, you can count on me. When they give me the program, they know I will have a great dedication to give results. I feel no difference between the programs. The responsibility for me is the same. I face everything with great difficulty , because I know it is not easy to do, but also with great love. ”
