For the 10th year anniversary of ABS-CBN’s noontime variety show It’s Showtime, the hosts of the show faced off in their annual Magpasikat segment, Their “Sampu Sample” marked the program’s ten years of making Filipinos happy.
After one week of performances of the It’s Showtime hosts, the grand winner was revealed last Saturday, October 26, as the team of Unkabogable Star Vice Ganda.
But this was not the only announcement that caught the attention of the audience. Team Leader Vice introduced someone as his “partner in life.”
Co-host Vhong Navarro asked Vice about his experiences for performing alone for Magpasikat and the latter replied that he was blessed to have people who stood by him.
“Alam mo nakalagay ‘Mag-isa ka at kaya mo ‘to’ pero in reality, hindi ko naman kaya. Kasi ‘di ba ‘yon ang shin’share ko sa inyo lagi ‘pag nagmi-meeting tayo. ‘Yon ang bubog ko.
“Everybody thinks, a lot of people think, na kaya ko lagi when in fact, hindi ko naman po kaya lagi. I need help and I am just so blessed kasi hindi naman ako nag-iisa.”
Vice acknowledged Dawn Zulueta and the three former Ms. Q and A contestants who joined his Magpasikat performance.
“And I am just so blessed kase di naman ako nag isa, Dawn (Zulueta) is here at tri ny lang namin, nag isip sila, sabi ko ‘try niyo nga yung kambal kong si Dawn.’ So tinext nila tapos sumagot agad, ang laking tulong nito. Sabi ko, ‘Ikaw ang magiging lucky charm ko.’ Sila (Alopecia Philippines & Miss Q & A) sumama sila, kusang loob sila sumama so hinde na ako nag-iisa.”
Vice afterwards shared on how hard it is to be alone and we should find someone if we need help.
“Sa totoong buhay, hindi po natin kaya mag-isa. Kailangan natin ng katulong. Maaaring pamilya o ang Panginoon pero kailangan natin ng tulong. Hindi tayo pwede mag-isa,” Vice said.
Well then, who is Vice Ganda’s supporter and partner in life?
“Ang sarap-sarap sa pakiramdam na naramdaman ko na hindi ako nag-iisa kasi for so many years in the past, I felt I was all alone at itong pang sampung taon ng Showtime, ang swerte swerte ko kasi hindi na ako nag-iisa. Meron na’kong katuwang sa buhay and I am so happy,” he added.
The audiences roared and co-host Karylle asked who it was that Vice was referring to.
“Di ko makakalimutan ‘tong 10th year ng Showtime, kase dito sa 10th year nakatagpo ako sinabi kong ‘you don’t need to be loved by the whole world, you only need yourself and one person that you love that will accept and love you back at meron na ako nun.”
In their Magpasikat performance, there was a scene where Vice said, “You don’t need to be loved by the whole world. You only need yourself and one person that you love to accept and love you back.”
He then pointed to Ion Perez and continued, “At mayroon na ako n’on. Andyan oh!” Ion, crying, went near Vice and they hugged each other.
Vice then continued to thank those who became part of the performance, he also expressed his gratefulness to those who continue to love him and support him all through the years
“Ang daming nagmamahal sakin. Maaaring tao man o dating tao at iba nang elemento ngayon. Madlang people, sa loob ng sampung taon, damang-dama ko po ‘yung pagmamahal n’yo po sa akin,” he said.
“Isinusumpa ko po hindi ko iiwanan ang Showtime at araw-araw gagalingan ko para mapatawa kayo,” he said.
Anne Curtis then added that maybe the butterfly that landed on his hand was God’s reminder that he is not truly alone.
“God will always be there for you and us, the Showtime family you’ve had for ten years, we will always be here for you no matter what. Sasamahan ka namin forever,” she assured him.
First runner-up for Magpasikat was Team Vhong Navarro and Mariel Padilla followed by Team Anne and Amy.
