After over 30 years in show business and hosting his fifth original game show to date, Willie Revillame needed no introduction as he walked on stage Monday morning and presented himself as popular e-commerce platform Shopee’s newest celebrity endorser.

Live streamed from GMA Network’s studios, the host-comedian took in a rousing applause, bowed and cheekily declared, “Mabuhay! This is history in my life. Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome myself as the new ambassador of Shopee!”

Revillame’s grand launch comes after several successful runs of Shopee TV specials on his massively popular daily program “Wowowin: Tutok to Win,” and in time for the platform’s much awaited “3.3 – 4.4 Mega Shopping Sale” from March through April.

Pulling all the stops to welcome the veteran game show host, Shopee’s top executive Martin Yu in the Philippines opened the festivities saying, “Shopee Philippines is excited to kick off the first mega sale of the year with its newest brand ambassador Willie Revillame, who is one of the country’s biggest TV icons. Kuya Wil, as he is fondly called by Filipinos, has brought joy to millions during these trying times with his fun-loving personality on Wowowin. Together with Willie Revillame, Shopee hopes to provide Filipinos with more meaningful and entertaining shopping experiences at our 3.3 – 4.4 Mega Shopping Sale.”

Airing daily segments for the online shopping site through April 4, Revillame promised to give away bigger prizes and discounts on special deals, among them free shipping with no minimum spend; 20 percent cashback on various categories; and P1 deals from top F&B merchants and trusted brand partners across all products and service categories.

He further announced the biggest dates for Shopee fans to watch out for starting with the Mega Flash Deals Sale on February 24, Mega ShopeePay Day on February 25, Mega Vouchers Day on March 2, Payday Sale on March 15, Mega Free Shipping Sale on March 27, and the Shopee Milyonaryo TV special on March 3, 5 p.m., on GMA Network where Wowowin’s main man will oversee such games as Shopee Shake, Watch and Win, and Shopee Milyonaryo Pera o Kahon.

Praising Shopee for giving Filipinos easy access to essentials at very low prices, Revillame now joins erstwhile Queen of All Media Kris Aquino — who had teased him in the past to get together given his closeness to her eldest son Josh — as Shopee brand ambassador.
