Yassi Pressman has learned the art of making people laugh.
The British-Filipino actor and model is tapping her funny bone as host of Rolling In It Philippines (RIIP), the local version of the international arcade game show.
The game involves three pairs of players taking turns to collect as many points by literally rolling a coin at the giant arcade set-up to win the prize money.
RIIP Season 1 premiered in June 2021 on TV5. Season 2 starts airing on 28 May at 7:30 p.m.
Nadine Lustre will guest on its pilot episode with YouTube sensation Chad Kinis and actor Jerald Napoles.
At an in-person media launch, Pressman said she has loosened up her hosting style.
“I’m more comfortable now, “ she said, adding she has overcome her shyness.
However, she admitted dealing with anxiety as a game show host.
“You always have to be 150-percent ready. I try to be more funny,” she said, pointing out she’s corny by nature.
RIIP Season 2 catch-up episodes will be available on Cignal TV CH. 3 and SatLite CH. 30.
It can also be watched Live and On-Demand via the Cignal Play App which is free to download for Android and iOS users.
Aside from hosting RIIP, Pressman is busy managing her various business ventures: Wavee, a high-tech toothbrush; a dog park at BGC; Presidential Paws, a dog leash line; and Mind You, a mental health company providing psychological support services. She co-founded it with Nadine Lustre and Liza Soberano.
Pressman likewise went into cryptocurrency via sportsmen Gabe and Jordan Norwood’s NFT project, Whitelist.io. She has been involved in cryptocurrency since 2017.
But she’s primarily an actor.
Her latest, More Than Blue, streams on Netflix.
