TikTok brings its first gaming reality show to the Philippines, The Greatest Gamer Philippines. The show will focus on 10 selected players who will live in a villa for three weeks. They will compete in various gaming and real-life challenges to prove their skills as aspiring professional gamers. The show wants to nurture and grow potential professional gamers and showcase the gaming lifestyle on TikTok.
The Greatest Gamer Philippines is supported by partners Smart, Smart Omega, Mobile Legends: Bang Bang (MLBB), and with the support of Grab and Samsung.

According to the 2023 Global Digital Report by Meltwater, over 95% of internet users in the country are avid gamers, reflecting a strong and vibrant gaming culture.
Contestants on The Greatest Gamer Philippines will participate in fun live streams of mini-games, weekly tournament gameplays, and other online and offline challenges. At the same time, they’ll learn from creators and experts in the gaming industry.
