The hosts of It’s Showtime made an agreement that they will go on vacation as a family every year. After nine long years in the noontime show, the hosts have grown closer and now treat each other as family.
This January, they all travelled to Hong Kong. One of the hosts, Jugs Jugueta, shared their experiences and adventures in Hong Kong. He was even interviewed regarding his views and opinion about the goings on in the show.
On Vice Ganda’s Jokes
Jokes have always been a part of the show. It is the joke that the hosts throw that make the show fun and entertaining. And one of the hosts who often throw controversial jokes is Vice Ganda.
Jugs was asked about Vice Ganda’s jokes about Eat Bulaga. He said Vice is just being honest and true. The problem with this though is that their honesty sometimes get them into trouble.
Just like other people, Vice is also a fan, despite being a star. He admitted to being a supporter of the “AlDub” team from their rival network.
Jugs does not see anything wrong with it. There are even times when Vice (and other It’s Showtime hosts) throw jokes at each other about Eat Bulaga and other stars of GMA Network.
As jokes go, they are just meant to be funny. But other people make issues out of those jokes. And as Jugs said, it gets them into trouble.
On Their Relationship As Hosts
The hosts of the show have developed a friendship incomparable with anything else. Their friendship is one with honesty, openness, and love. They respect each other’s opinions and views, making them free to express themselves.
Whatever jokes they throw in on the show are just that – jokes. But there are times when they joke with each other which, according to them, are sometimes true. But, this happens, only when they joke about each other.
The views and opinions of one host may be different from the others, but still they support each other. This is what makes their friendship one of a kind. To them, hosting It’s Showtime is not work, but bonding time for the family.
Comedian and television host Vice Ganda was recently criticized over a comment he made at the The Magpasikat 2018 segment of It’s Showtime’sAnniBEKSary.
In the special segment, the other hosts played as the contestants of Miss Q & A. Jugs Jugueta, who was dubbed as Alakdawn Zulueta, was asked to describe the other contestants. This led to him describing Jugs Jugueta as someone who looked anomalous.
“Mukha siyang tiwali.”
Anne Curtis proceeded to ask what ‘tiwali’ meant and Vice immediately answered “Parang corrupt!”. A bit later he said, “Ang taray ni No. 1 oh, bloated si Leila de Lima oh. Mukhang nahiyang si Leila sa loob. May message ka ba kay Trillanes?”
Jugs answered, “Hoy, inaantay ka namin dito.”
Vice then received criticisms over his de Lima comment.
Sobra ka na minsan Vice . Ang pagbanggit mo kay Sen . de Lima kanina wala ka ng respeto. Siguro oras na para hinde ba kita panoorin. Hinde ka na nakakatuwa. Alalahanin mo sana walang kasalanan si Sen Leila . At ai Trillanes ? Sana tigilan mo na sila.
Dear Vice Ganda,
Lagi mong ginagawang katatawanan sila De Lima at Trillanes. Kung makulong ba si Trillanes, mawawala ba ang inflation? Mauubos ba ang shabu? And most importantly…
MAGKAKAROON BA NG KUWENTA ANG MGA PELIKULA MO?
I just find it funny that after @itsShowtimeNa’s hosts performed acts that tackle societal issues inlcluding “bullying,” here is the ever arrogant @vicegandako making fun of the situation of senators de Lima and Trillanes. That “magpasikat” portion and the show scream hypocrisy.
Making fun of Sen. de Lima is not fun at all. It’s a reflection of the person making it.
Another netizen accused Vice Ganda of being brainwashed by President Rodrigo Duterte and their trolls.
What happened to you? Bakit ka nagpa-brainwash sa lowly trolls ni Duterte at kay Duterte mismo? It is bad enough that De Lima, a human rights defender, is in jail for no reason. It is worse that you have to make fun of her current situation. SHAME ON YOU & celebs like you!
It’s pretty undeniable that ABS-CBN’s It’s Showtime is one of the this generation’s most watched variety shows in the Philippines. But does anyone remember that it actually premiered as a morning talent program and was aired before the network’s former noontime show, Pilipinas, Game Ka Na Ba?
Along with the change of its time slot in 2012, they have also changed their studio.
On Wednesday, after airing the live telecast of their shows in the United States, the hosts reminisced memories as they surprised viewers by going to a “new” studio. They later revealed that it is actually not something new as it was where they originally taped the morning show.
The original mainstays, namely Vice Ganda, Anne Curtis, Vhong Navarro, Kim Atienza, Teddy Corpus, and Jugs Jugueta, expressed how much they actually missed the old setup.
Curtis said that she felt goosebumps when she entered the studio, since it was almost eight years ago when they started there, “Parang nakakakilabot na pumasok dito, kasi para sa mga hindi po nakakaalam, almost eight years ago tayo nag-umpisa dito,”
“Parang bumalik lahat ng alaala, na parang ‘yung first show natin, kinakabahan tayo, kung magugustuhan ba kami ng madlang people. And we’re still here, going strong!”
Karylle went on and explained the real reason why they went back and said that it will only be temporary since their current studio is being renovated.
“Dito muna tayo habang inaayos at lalong pinapaganda ang dati nating tahanan. Talaga naman pinapa-bongga ang studio natin,”
The show will be celebrating its 9th anniversary on October 24.
Although with her red and puffy eyes, Nadine Lustre came back to work as a host on “It’s Showtime!”
Jugs Jugueta posted pictures and videos of the whole crew reading lines and having fun together on his Instagram story.
Before she came back to work, she spoke out on her Instagram story. She told people not to post pictures of her and her family grieving. Asking for respect and consideration from friends, relatives and supporters.
She was smiling and laughing on air with the rest of the “It’s Showtime” hosts.
