It’s Showtime

HYPE  THIS LOOK ON L OOKBOOK.NU

 

I know I said that  the blog is going to be a little quiet for the next three weeks, but I couldn’t resist. Yesterday marks my nearest brush with TV fame yet.

I got tagged along by A2 and Friends to watch Showtime, a popular talent show on ABS-CBN, and become “madlang people” for a day. This might sound totally jologs for some people, but I actually like the show! Vice Ganda is just too funny.

To make it there on time, we had to meet up the ungodly hour of 7am. Blech.

Showtime airs at 10am, but we also got to go on a studio tour of the station. Our tour guide was this nice, but kinda sleazy dude named Chase.

Here we are, waiting for the tour to start.

UP REPREZENT!

On the ASAP stage oyeah!

Then it was time to line up for the show, it was lucky that we scored relatively good seats!

Before the show started, the floor directors taught us these dance steps that the audience need to do when the show starts, and may I tell you, they are no easy squeezy stuff to pull off! They were beyond the usual hand gestures and cheering, which made me realize that being a Showtime audience member was more difficult than I thought. You had to act all upbeat and cheery all the time!

Finally, the show starts.

It was a bit of a disappointment that neither Vice Ganda nor Anne Curtis were there, as they were my favorites. But Nikki Gil was pretty awesome all on her own, except for the fact that her legs were so tiny she looked like a red, floral flamingo.

 

149684_1574442614406_1635791028_1319051_7361828_nThe hurado s for that day were the long staying Ryan Bang and Karylle, while new judges were Agot Isidro and Danilo Barrios. Guest hurados were Erich Gonzales and Enchong Dee.

I am going on the record to say that Danilo Barrios is one of the most boring judges ever. He needs to be burado. NAO.

 

Every show, there are three contestants.

Before asking the judges their comments and scores, everyone in the audience waves around the scores they give to the contestants, while the hosts scurry around to look for those to give their SAMPLE, in the chances of winning money.

But arguably the biggest excitement I had for the day happened somewhere in the middle of the show. Who knew that Lando and I would go from this:

TO THIS?

Every episode, the hosts pick out people from the audience to become “madlang hosts for the day” and introduce one of the contestants. And lo and behold, we got picked! Up to now, I haven’t really figured out how that happened exactly, but all I can remember is Kuya Kim asking the two of us to stand up, and telling us that we look like anime characters HAHAHA.

We did get to be confused as a getting married couple at one point and time, but hey, that’s showbiz right?

 

Aside from the main contestants, there is also a mini-contest for the Sampleista of the Day.

This fat guy won, by the way.

Anna A also got her dose of tv fame when she got picked to comment on Sampleista No. 3 (not pictured.)

In the end, it was Contestant Number 2, the Amazing Gymnasts, who won the day’s vote.

 

It was a fun day, and will definitely be on my list of memorable moments. Thanks to everyone who made the day great! :)

And now, I leave you with a few more screencaps from the show, as well as the Youtube video for our hosting stint. XD

    This post made me laugh so hard my already not-so-nice editor got even not-so-nicer! Hahahaha

    And I like your “This fat guy won”… I knew you had something against fat people (which, relatively speaking, is everyone). HAHAHAHAHA

    So funny! We were supposed to watch Willing Willie at the same day!

      Hahahaha! Why “supposed”? Dai kamo natuloy? It’s funny, when you go out of the studio, there’s a big tarp for Willing Willie facing the exit. :))

      And what else would you call the guy but fat? I couldn’t think of a better description eh! XD

Allie has seen many a dust bunny in her lifetime, most of them in her dorm room. She is often mistaken as a 13-year old, further intensified by her weird fashion choices that mostly involve cutesy patootsie rings, colorful knee high socks, and ribbons and bows in her hair. She dreams of waking up one day and finding herself as a character in Star Wars. Preferably a jedi. With a purple lightsaber.
