Derek Ramsay Is The Lucky Charm Of Winning Contestants In 'Happy Truck Ng Bayan'

DEREK RAMSAY, as a host of TV5's noontime game variety show, "Happy Truck ng Bayan", is happy that
last Sunday (July 12), he helped contestant Aldrin Santos of Commonwealth, Quezon City to win a total of P225,000 cash! Before moving up to the “Kwartruck” segment, Aldrin was hailed “Barangay Most Wanted” after besting out 150 of his neighbors. It was Derek who led him to the lucky capsule containing the jackpot prize. Since Derek “feels responsible” for the fate of Aldrin and his wife after the contestants followed his advice in which capsule to pick, Derek joined Aldrin and his wife inside the capsule, so that whatever falls on the couple falls on him too. But to everyone’s surprise, it turns out the jackpot was right there all along!

Avid fans of the program note that Derek has been quite lucky when it comes to guessing and picking the right capsules containing the jackpot prize. During the pilot episode of "Happy Truck Ng Bayan", Derek correctly chose Gelli De Belen’s capsule and true enough, it had the jackpot, but the contestant didn’t follow his advice. The first jackpot winner, Prince from San Juan City, ended up choosing Derek’s capsule, which also led him to the grand prize.

Meanwhile, hunky and talented construction workers take the spotlight as “Happy Truck Ng Bayan” launched its newest hit segment: “O.C.W. (Ooooh Construction Worker!)” The personality search became an instant hit both among audiences at the barangays and among netizens. "O.C.W.” made a buzz online as the hunky construction workers showcased their sexy grooves and proved that they're more than right for the job. Those who want to audition for “O.C.W.” can go to TV5 Novaliches in Quezon City, or send their photos and contact information to Happy Truck Ng Bayan’s Facebook account: http://facebook.com/HappyTruckNgBayan. Don't miss "Happy Truck Ng Bayan" every Sunday, 11AM on TV5!
