This became the subject of Eat Bulaga! co-host Ruby Rodriguez‘s Instagram post, connecting it to Ryzza Mae, who was crowned Little Miss Philippines 2012.
In her caption, Rodriguez said that the believes that Ryzza Mae has what it takes to follow the footsteps of Gray. This included a a side by side photo of Gray’s 1999 stint and the beauty queen’s recent photo.
“Sabi ko na nga @ryzzamaedizon_ may pag asa ka!”
Netizens have supported the idea of the Eat Bulaga host and even cheered Ryzza Mae to become a beauty queen.

Tita Rubs mag antay ako 19 more years from now ng isang Bulaga walk ni Ryzza sa Ms. U 2037

Others also said that instead of sporting the lava walk that Gray popularized, Ryzza May will have the Cha-cha walk or Eat Bulaga walk.
Pag sumali si Boss Madam, imbes na LAVA walk, malamang CHACHA walk ang gagawin niya sa rampa!
Hahahaha ipapauso ni ryzza ang chacha walk!
Ryzza Mae Dizon is now a teenager!
The Little Miss Philippines 2012 winner officially turned 13 years-old last June 12, 2018, as she celebrated her birthday with her ‘Eat Bulaga!’ famiy. Aside from her birthday, she’s also celebrating her 6th year in showbiz.
Ryzza was only six years old when she won Little Miss Philippines. In April 2018, she started appearing daily at the noontime show. In the same year, she started hosting her own show titled “The Ryzza Mae Show” wherein she had the chance to interview various artists. The talk show aired until September 2015.
It was replaced by a series titled Princess in the Palace wherein Ryzza Mae also starred alongside Aiza Seguerra and Eula Valdez.
The child star has appeared in six movies in total; namely Si Agimat, si Enteng Kabisote at Si Ako, My Little Bossings, My Big Bossing’s Adventures, My Bebe Love: KiligPaMore, Enteng Kabisote 10 and the Abangers, and Trip Ubusan: The Lolas vs. Zombies.
Although she’s only the same height as five-year-old co-host at Eat Bulaga!, Sebastian Benedict also known as Baby Baste, she has already achieved around 26 awards.
In a previous interview, Ryzza Mae gave an advice to all the aspiring child stars:
““Always pray to Papa Jesus because He will give it to you. It’s also important to say thank you for all the blessings you receive. And if they really want to become stars, they need to have diligence and passion for work,”
Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza of the AlDub love team are not the first celebrities that were made famous by Eat Bulaga! Even before the country went gaga over this couple, there have been many unknowns that became popular through the longest running noontime show. They may not have conquered the world, but they made a name for themselves in the Philippines. You might still see some of them on TV while others have taken a different career path.
Let’s get to know the top 10 celebrities that Eat Bulaga! made famous.
Vhong Navarro and Jhong Hilario: two of It’s Showtime’s hosts are former members of the Streetboys who used to be backup dancers on Eat Bulaga!. They were on the noontime show when it was still airing on ABS-CBN, and they were pitted against the more popular Universal Motion Dancers (UMD). They were still dancing for Eat Bulaga when the noontime show transferred to GMA. While UMD was popular for their provocative dancing, Streetboys got famous for their break-dancing moves.
The group also starred in a few movies. Spencer Reyes was the one who got most of the attention back then and he was even paired up with Aiza Seguerra.
