Namamayagpag yung show nyo kamo? e ramdam ba ng tao yung 4.4 na ratings nyo? 😆 buti pa yung 3.0 ratings ni @vicegandako nagrereflect sa kasikatan nya sa TV, youtube views, followers sa Twitter and FB, tsaka sa pelikula. Mayabang ka na sa 4.4 na ratings? 🤣

Magtanong ka sa labas dali kung may nakaalam ng show. Pinagyayabang mo yan e mas sikat naman si Vice sa dalawang yan. Sinuwerte lang naman sa KMJS ung TBATS eh. From 17 na ratings ng KMJS, 4 lang ang TBATS. Ang baba pa niyan, pwe!

The former ‘Tawag ng Tanghalan’ contestant explained that he works with Tekla in comedy bars such as Klownz and Zirkoh, and he treats Boobay as family. Thus, people should not put malice to his congratulatory message for the two.
Ate Gay explained: “Anak ko si boobay at kasama ko si Tekla sa klownz at zirkoh… umabot po sila ng isang taon kaya ako po ay natuwang bumabati.. ang sunod kong bati ay nxtyear.. huwag bigyan ng malisya.. love love love.”

The rift between the two comedians started in 2012 when Ate Gay blamed Unkabogable Star Vice Ganda when the former’s pitch-hitting for a show was canceled. On November 21, 2019, while bantering with a ‘Tawag ng Tanghalan’ contestant with a resemblance to Ate Gay, Vice indirectly insinuated the reason the comedian was removed from the contest.
Vice jokingly said: “Tawag ng Tanghalan All-Star Grand Resbak contestant, na kamuka ni Ate Gay, na kaya hindi raw siya naisalang dahil sa dami ng kanyang hanash sa Facebook.”
