Comedian and actor Michael V recently conducted a question and answer segment in his vlog titled ‘#BitoyStory 11: “3-in-1”‘.
In one part of the video, he shared his thoughts regarding transferring networks and his goodbye as a regular host of noontime show, Eat Bulaga.
He said that his ultimate goal is actually for exclusive network contracts to disappear so that artists can work and share their craft without limitations.
“Ang pinakaultimate goal ko: ang mawala ang network contract. Hindi sa sinasabi kong hindi maganda yun. Pero mas hindi nalilimitahan yung kakayahan mo pag mayroon kang laya o freedom na gumawa ng project sa kahit anong network. Para ma-expose ka sa ibang style o talent.
“Ultimately, lahat ng artista yun ang gustong mangyari.”
He also explained why he has been out of ‘Eat Bulaga’ after being a regular host for 12 years. Bitoy said that his busy schedule has been one of the main factors for his decision to leave the show.
“Nami-miss ko rin sila siyempre. Mayroong point in my life na sobrang kailangan kong gawin na dati Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays ako, naging Fridays and Saturdays na lang. Naging Saturday na lang, so parang medyo nahihiya na ako.
“Napakaliit na oras na lang ang mailalaan ko for them, nakakahiya namang magtrabaho nang ganun. And besides that time talagang kaputukan nung AlDub.
“I think that was the perfect time for me to do something else, yung mga kailangan kong gawin para hindi nakakahiyang medyo hindi muna pumasok sa Bulaga.”
Michael V clarified that there’s no bad blood between him and ‘Eat Bulaga’ as they do occasionally ask him to host; however, it doesn’t match his schedule most of the time.
“From time to time tinatawagan pa rin ako ng Bulaga to host, it just happens na hindi lang talaga nagtutugma yung schedule, medyo busy pa rin. Pero open yung line namin ng Bulaga, so no problem dun sa part na yun.”
