- Super Tekla said that even though their soon-to-be televised show is on the same timeslot as Gandang Gabi, Vice, they won’t look at it as a competition.
- He also said that The Boobay and Tekla Show was liked and an answered prayer for him as he went through difficult times.
The Boobay and Tekla Show (TBATS) started off as a product of GMA ONE Online Exclusives and each episode has gained hundreds of thousands of views online.
Because of their online following, GMA Network has decided to finally give them a timeslot every Sunday, after Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho. It will premiere on January 27.
Super Tekla has shared that before this, he was ready to go back to Cotabato as he felt like a failure and was embarrassed of himself.
“Ready na akong bumalik sa Cotabato. Babalik na ako sa bundok ulit kasi sobra akong na-depress noong mawala ako sa Wowowin.
“Pakiramdam ko, wala na akong pag-asa sa Maynila. Yung naging failure ako. Hiyang-hiya ako para sa sarili ko at para sa pamilya ko na umaasa sa akin.”
But when someone from the Network called him and informed him about the show with Boobay, he said that it was like an answered prayer.
“Pero siguro nga, narinig ng Diyos ang panalangin ko. Bigla akong tinawagan ng mga taga-GMA-7 at gusto raw nila akong kuning talent. Doon na nagsimula ang lahat. Naisipan na nilang gawin ang show na ito with Boobay.”
As TBATS Will be in the same timeslot as Vice Ganda‘s Gandang Gabi, Vice, Super Tekla expressed that they’re not planning to make it a competition because their main goal is to enjoy themselves.
“Para walang stress sa amin ni Boobay, mag-enjoy lang kami. May mga tao na ikukumpara talaga kami sa show ni Vice Ganda, pero hindi namin gagawing basehan iyon ni Boobay.
“Magpapasaya lang kami every Sunday night. Kung ano ‘yung kinatuwaan nila sa amin noong online show pa lang kami, dodoblehin namin para mas masaya at mas maaliw ang audience sa amin.”
So what’s should viewers look forward to?
“Marami kaming pasabog at mga big Kapuso stars ang ready nang mag-guest sa show namin ni Boobay,” he stated.
