SINGAPORE : It’s the battle of the stars!
Singapore TV personalities put aside their friendships and ditch their glamourous images for a day, to get down and dirty to outdo each other in “The Showdown.”
Forget your usual telematch games like tug-of-war, host Dominic Lau and Game Master Suhaimi Yusof will take you on a wild ride as the teams battle it out in a series of wacky, off-the-wall challenges like Treadmill Feast and Human Fooseball.
Celebrity teams of four will be put to the test to see how well they do in a physically challenging environment outside of their element. Some games really test your agility and strength while some are just plain silly with contestants all dressed as birds (Lil’ Birdie).
Gurmit Singh, Irene Ang, Utt, Jade Seah, and Daren Tan are just some of the celebrities that viewers will be able to catch on the show.
Though this is the first time Lau is hosting a game show, the Pan Asian model and VJ from Hong Kong had so much fun that hopes to return to work in Singapore, or maybe even come back as a contestant on “The Showdown.”
“If I was in the competition, I would have kicked a**!” said a confident Lau. “Maybe not so much this egg between the legs game [Lil’ Birdie] but I’m a physical kind of guy and I enjoy a good challenge.”
On top of bragging rights, members of the winning team will also walk away with a cash prize of S$4,000! Pretty good deal for a day of fun and games.
Catch The Showdown every Thursday at 8pm, on MediaCorp Channel 5. You can also get your weekly dose of The Showdown online at
