Kap's Amazing Stories was an informative and educational television programme from the Philippines. Produced by GMA Network, it began airing on 19 August 2007. Its main presenter is Senator Bong Revilla,[1] and was joined by Jillian Ward in 2012.

Format[edit]

The show uses at least five clips, ranked from five up to one, like Most Amazing and Astonishing Moments does, and this format continues to Totally Wild and Most Daring, even if those two shows did not originally rank their videos. Clips are usually from National Geographic's Most Amazing and Astonishing Moments, Totally Wild, truTV's Most Daring & BBC's Life and lately, Stan Lee's Superhumans.

It also had a children's version, "Kap's Amazing Stories Kids Edition" that premiered on 7 February 2010. Its presenters were Ramboy Revilla (Senator Revilla's youngest son), Jayda Avanzado (daughter of singer-actors Jessa Zaragosa and Dingdong Avanzado) and Angeli Nicole Sanoy. The show featured an Animal Kingdom and World's Deadliest Animals. Guest presenters include Kap's Amazing Stories Kids Edition Ogie Alcasid, Carmina Villaroel, and Elmo Magalona.

The show originally aired every Saturday, but in 2013 it was moved to Sundays night due to a reformatting of GMA's Sunday Primetime block.

Due to copyright issues with the videos and flowbows being presented, the show is not broadcast on GMA Pinoy TV, the network's international channel.

Cancellation[edit]

Following then-host Sen. Bong Revilla's detention and imprisonment after one of the three senators accused for plunder charges in connection for the Pork barrel scam on June 20, 2014. And despite of his detention and imprisonment, Kap's Amazing Stories continues to air as re-runs of selected previous episodes until GMA finally cancelled the show for same mentioned-above reason on July 6, 2014, after nearly seven years of airing.
