Long-running Kapamilya noontime show It’s Showtime, despite the challenges brought about by the network shutdown, proved once more that it continues to be a game-changer and trendsetter when it comes to entertainment. The recently launched pageant for moms with a twist, ReINA ng Tahanan, became an instant hit among viewers. In fact, it is now the show’s main segment. One of the brains and concept pushers behind the hit portion is the unkabogable Phenomenal Star Vice Ganda.
As previously featured here on Random Republika, Vice Ganda wanted moms to get the royal treatment they truly deserve in the midst of a pandemic. READ MORE HERE: https://randomrepublika.com/vice-ganda-opens-up-on-why-he-pushed-for-reina-ng-tahanan/
“Iba-iba ang feelings na nararamdaman ko – nakakadagdag ng happiness kasi alam ko na tama ang gut naming dahil talagang pinaglaban namin ang segment na ito sa management,” Vice Ganda beamed with pride. “Ngayong certified hit itong segment na dinevelop at pinaglaban namin, alam namin na hindi nasayang ang tiwala na binigay sa amin ng management.”
The well-loved host shared how he and the team are all pumped up and inspired to outdo themselves everyday in terms of creative output. Vice said, “We are inspired to na lalong pagandahin ang segment. Inspired kami kasi maganda talaga ang kinalabasan ang segment.”
Vice also shared how the segment’s sudden success gave him inspiration, “Ang sarap mag-work araw-araw knowing na madami kaming napapasaya at nabibigyan namin ng outlet ang napakadaming mga Nanay na i-express ang sarili nila at i-showcase ang mga talents nila.”
Learnings also abound in his journey with the team to make the most out of the portion. He added, “Marami akong naututunan. Alam mo naman mahirap akong i-shock o gulatin sa dami ng mga naranasan at na-witness ko sa buhay ko pero nagugulat pa rin ako sa mga nadidiscover ko sa mga istorya ng mga Nanay naming contestants.”
He later enumerated the simple yet valuable learnings he picked up from the experience:
“Ang species ng mga nanay ay mas madami pa sa species ng mga isda.”
“I realized na hindi nauubos ang iba’t-ibang uri ng mga Nanay.”
“Madaming uri ng mga Nanay. We cannot stereotype nanays. Madaming hugis, madaming kuwento, madaming kinds.”
“Limitless ang defitnition ng salitang nanay.”
“Ang common sa kanila ay ang pagmamahal nila sa kani-kanilang mga pamilya – pagmamahal sa kanilang mga asawa at kanilang mga anak.”
To sum it all up, Vice believes the success of the segment lies in how it cuts across all markets. He said, “Across the board ang market ng ‘ReINA ng Tahanan’ dahil talagang family oriented ito.” He acknowledged how all kinds of moms see themselves in the segment and finds what they see relatable. “Regardless economic class, regardless of background, motherhood is universal,” he ended.
