EXCLUSIVE: ‘Banana Sundae’ cast share the highlights of their ‘Banana Split: Extra Scoop’ days


111315-BananaSundae_PUSH.jpgAfter the comedy gag show Banana Split: Extra Scoop had another major change, the cast reminisced about their fondest memories of the show before it premieres as Banana Sundae on November 15 with JC de Vera, Jessy Mendiola, and Pokwang as the newest additions to their cast.

In an exclusive interview with Push.com.ph, actors Aiko Climaco, Angelica Panganiban, Badji Mortiz, Jayson Gainza, John Prats, Kuya Jobert, Ryan Bang, Sunshine Garciam and Pooh named their favorite guests, segments and moments.

Unforgettable Moment
Most of them remembered the moment when the whole cast traveled to Bohol for their anniversary special in 2013 and an earthquake with magnitude 7.2 hit the place.

“So ganun kalakas ang impact ng banana,” Pooh joked then continued and said, “Oo isa yun siyempre kasi ugain ka ba naman ng nasa loob ng bus ‘di ba?”

“Well marami talaga kasi parang pag nagsasama sama kami magulo, laging may nangyayari pero pinaka unforgettable nung nilindol kami sa Bohol so, ano siya kasi hindi lang dahil medyo tragic ‘yung nangyari kumbaga parang dun mo talaga nakita ‘yung sincerity, ‘yung love, ‘yung care namin sa isa’t-isa,” Angelica added.

It was different for Ryan. He shared one of his unforgettable moments when he first joined the comedy show.

“Nung first time po akong nag guest dito tapos punta kami dati sa Baguio. Sabi ko, ‘Ano pong dadalhin natin?’ Tapos sabi nila sa akin pupunta tayo sa pinakamainit na lugar sa Pilipinas. May beach mas mainit pa daw sa Boracay kaya nung time na ‘yun dinala ko mga swimsuit, trunks, slipper. Pagdating ko sa Baguio sobrang lamig. Nung first time pa ako sa Banana Split bumili pa ako ng jacket, pantalon grabe lamig na lamig na ako kaya ‘yun ang hindi ko makalimutan.”

Favorite Segment
Pooh recalled that during Banana Nite his favorite segment was “Sosyal o ‘di Sosyal” and when it became Banana Split: Extra Scoop his favorite was “Baby Love” where his love team was JC de Vera. Badji, Jayson, John and Kuya Jobert, Aiko and Sunshine also said that one of their favorites was the “Baby Love” segment.

“’Yung favorite segment ko siyempre yung Bang Trip kasi umikot ako sa palengke and hindi pa ako nakapunta. Napunta ako kung saan saan may MMDA, traffic, palengke tinatanong ko kung ano ang tanong ng walang kwenta yung mga tanong [ko],” Ryan shared.

“Well isa sa mga paborito ko yung “NNNN (Ntertainment News Na Naman)” kung saan kami nagsimula ni Jayson na Bhoy and Krissy, gusto ko rin yung ‘Hot Issue’ na aaliw ako na parang nagkukwentuhan lang kami. ‘Yun yung  mga paborito ko tsaka mga games,” Angelica said.

Favorite Guests
Pooh started saying, “Si JC naging favorite guest namin kaya naging regular na siya.” John added and said, “Well surprisingly sa huli si Kyla kasi game siya. Hindi namin alam na game siya.” 

Badji further described Kyla when she was at their show.

“Pumunta siya tapos pinasayaw namin siya. Wacky siya parang hindi naman everyday mo nakikitang ganun si Kyla. Siguro alam niya na ganun show namin. Tapos nag dance siya sa GGV (Gandang Gabi Vice).”

Pooh then said, “Nakita ‘yung other side of Kyla so gusto namin ‘yung guest namin ‘yung game.”

For Aiko and Sunshine, their favorites are both singers. Sunshine said her favorite was Asia’s Nightingale Lani Misalucha while Aiko said, “Si KZ Tandingan kasi ang ganda ng kanta niya.”

“Dami, dati lumabas si Sandara (Park) ‘di ba birthday ko nag VTR siya nagulat talaga ako nakahanda talaga Banana Split family ko siyempre nung birthday ko lumabas din si mommy ko diba sa VTR kaya natutuwa ako,” Ryan shared.

Angelica shared how Piolo Pascual became one of her unforgettable guest.

“Siguro pinaka challenging na na-guest sa’min nung  na guest si Piolo kasi parang kumbaga close kami at saka lagi niya akong tinetext pag nakakanood siya ng Banana Split na tawang-tawa siya so nung finally i-interviewhin ko na siya parang sobrang weird lang na kinakausap ko siya as Krissy tapos hirap na hirap talaga ako tapos pag nag titinginan kami tawang-tawa na kami kaagad.

“Talagang pawis na pawis ako nung araw na ‘yun grabe pa give up na talaga ako ‘Ayoko na hindi ko na kaya’ dahil siguro ganun pag masyado kayong close at kilala niyo yung isa’t-isa talaga at alam niyang pinaglalaruan ko siya.”
