The ‘Madlang Pipol’ (the viewers) wondered why Kim Chiu is missing in action on It’s Showtime lately. Usually, she gets to host at least one segment of the noontime show.
Speculations spread that Chiu got removed from the said hosting stint.
Over twitter, netizens ranted when they noticed that Chiu is nowhere to find all throughout the show. They expressed their dismay over the production’s decisions on not allocating much exposure for the Cebuana and former PBB big winner.
A user complained about why it was only Vice Ganda and Vhong Navarro who hosted the segments.
Why it's only VG and Vhong Navarro hosting the segments,it was better when Kim and Vhong was alternating,just watching It's Showtime because of Kim Chiu

An account posted that the pandemic has been hard on everyone’s life, but Kim’s presence can surely brighten someone’s day.

Someone admitted that sometimes Chiu’s jokes are corny, but the noontime show would not be complete without her goofiness.
I admit na minsan waley ang hirit ni Kim Chiu pero I cannot imagine Showtime without her sa true lang. Kaya hindi rin ako gaano sumasali sa pag-call out sa extra energy niya everyday dahil need naman talaga ng ganong energy for a noon time show.

Another commended how Chiu brings in warmth and positivity to those people who get to catch her on the show.
Someone gave an emphasis that Chiu is a host of the show and not a guest.
She deserves a whole lot more screen time.
STILL no hosting segment????
Nothing against Vhong but we believe that Kim Chiu @prinsesachinita deserves EXPOSURE… hindi siya guest sa @itsShowtimeNa – just reminding u that she is a host. Kung hindi pa sa Shopee today, wala siyang moment sa show
Pls re-assess… pic.twitter.com/OI73I8ixHj

A user revealed that their entire family tuned in to the show and wished Chiu will be one of the regular hosts.
What could be the score behind Chiu’s sudden non-visibility in the show?
