Is there a Big Reveal? Is Piolo Pascual going to GMA Network?

Currently, Pascual has taken a break in showbiz after his Sunday variety show on TV5 got abruptly canceled and was replaced by ABS-CBN’s ASAP NATIN ‘TO!

Seasoned actor Piolo Pascual to transfer in GMA Network?

On June 8’s episode of Cristy Fermin’s radio show, Cristy Fer Minute, she piqued the viewers’ interest about Pascual having a surprise for his fans.

“Ikinwento ko kahapon na napakaagang tumawag sakin ni Willie Revillame na kinukuha ang numero ni Piolo sa ‘kin. Ang sabi ko kay Mr. M mo na lang tanungin,” said Fermin.

She then proceeded with how homegrown talents of a now franchise-less ABS-CBN had no projects nor offers as they started switching to different networks during this pandemic.

“At eto na nga, si Piolo, homegrown talent ng ABS-CBN. Kahit sina John Lloyd Cruz, Jerico Rosales, sila halos lahat ay pinalaki ng ABS-CBN.

“Pinuhunanan, ginastusan, ginamitan ng promo, para sila lahat ay sumikat. Pero sa isang panahon na walang proyektong naibibigay sa mga homegrown talents, ano nga ba ang gagawin nila?” continued the radio host.

Her co-host, Romel Chika then relayed how ABS-CBN’s CEO, Carlo Katigbak, was understandable that the Network’s stars are switching to different networks.

“Yun nga, katulad ng nabasa ko, sabi nga ng CEO ng ABS-CBN na si Mr. Katigbak na sige lang malaya kayong umalis,” Chika narrated.

“Dahil nga wala kaming maibibigay na trabaho sa inyo at alam namin na kailangan n’yong magtrabaho. May basbas rin eh.”

Fermin recalled how the actor went to TV5 and followed Johnny ‘Mr. M’ Manahan. The star builder is currently part of Willie Revillame’s production firm Wilfredo Buendia Revillame (WBR) who has partnered with GMA Network for upcoming shows and movies.

“Gaya ni Piolo Pascual, poste siya ng ABS-CBN. Pero gumawa siya at sumama kay Mr. M ng isang Sunday show dito sa TV5. Nagkataon lamang na maagang nagtiklop yung mga programa nila. Pero hindi nangangahulugan na hindi na siya sasama pa kay Mr. M,” Fermin recalled.

With Pascual’s show on TV5 now shelved, and with no projects that followed, it will be no surprise that the actor may come to GMA Network in search of work.

“Kaya ‘wag na nating pagtakahan pa ang mga senaryong magaganap sa darating na mga buwan.”

At the moment, Fermin has not yet heard about the “surprise” of Pascual.

Nevertheless, GMA Network’s doors are open for the actor to make the switch anytime.

“Wala naman tayong narinig kay Piolo. Wala rin tayong narinig kay Mr. M. So, bukas ang pintuan. At kung sakaling lulundag nga sa kabilang bakuran si Piolo, punung-puno na ang syete.”
