“Of course, nandiyan ang harutan at kulitan sa ‘It’s Showtime’ at ‘Everybody Sing’ pero kailangan din natin magbigay ng inspirasyon at positive good vibes sa mga nanonood,” the phenomenal and unkabogable host and comedian Vice Ganda said after his “AdVICE of the Day” memes went viral. The It’s Showtime host immediately added that a lot of people contributed to helping him become who he is today and he’s passing on the kindness to others.
Vice said, “Madami ang nag-guide sa akin at nagbigay sa akin ng inspiration so I’m just paying it forward now that I have a platform to reach a lot of people.” Despite being in a place of comfort, he surely keeps others in mind. “Gusto ng mga taong makalimot sa mga problema nila so pinapatawa ko sila at inaaliw ko sila pero kailangan din ng tidbits of encouragement and life lessons na pwedeng makatulong sa kanila sa mga pang-araw araw nilang buhay,” Vice added.
Vice made sure he did not take all the credit in gaining all the wisdom he has now. He said, “Marami rin ako natutunan sa mga kaibigan ko at mga kasama ko sa work at sa family ko at sa mga contestants ng ReINA ng Tahanan so masaya kasi give and take ang learning process.”
“Dito man lang may maiambag ako na maganda sa mga followers at fans ko,” he ended.
Random Update on Everybody, Sing!
Vice Ganda’s voice broke as she couldn’t help but turn emotional when the songbayanan of factory workers won the P500,000 jackpot prize in ABS-CBN’s “Everybody, Sing!” on Sunday (August 29).
Vice explained that Harra, one of the contestants, moved her so much that she felt the songbayanan deserved to win. Harra shared on the show that she was retrenched and is now struggling to make ends meet as they are nine in the household. Because of their difficult situation, sometimes Harra’s mother skips meals just so her children could eat.
“Hindi ko kasi kaya ‘yung istorya ni Harra. Hindi kumakain ‘yung nanay at tatay niya kasi hindi sapat. Hindi ko kaya ‘yun, na uuwi siya, tapos mangyayari na naman ‘yun sa kanila,” Vice said.
She added, “maliit na tulong ito, itong bigay naming sa inyo. Bukod sa fun, bukod sa entertainment, gusto naming kayong tulungan. Kung puwede lang naming kayo tulungan lahat. Maliit lang naman ‘yan, pero ang sarap sa pakiramdam.”
Meanwhile on Saturday (August 28), Vice Ganda transformed into Hello Kitty and got to know the songbayanan of flight attendants who took home P35,000 in the jackpot round. They shared with Vice that their profession isn’t just all about glam as they also need to be patient and learn how to deal with different people from different cultures.
