After a successful sixth year anniversary celebration, It’s Showtime celebrated it’s first ever Showtime Kapamilya Day with a bang last September 26 at the Araneta Coliseum. Included in their line-up of very special guests were some of the hottest celebrities in showbiz today. PUSH.com.ph got to chat with them during the event where they revealed who their favorite Showtime hosts were.
Topping the list is comedian Vice Ganda whose celebrity fans range from his peers to even some of the youngest teen artists today. “Siyempre yung favorite ko na host is yung best friend kong si Vice. Siyempre nakakapagdala siya ng saya at katatawanan sa ating mga manunuod and at the same time madami rin siyang natuturong magagandang values sa ating mga manunuod,” said Coco Martin.
Pangako Sa ‘Yo teens Grae Fernandez and JK Labajo also agreed on their choice. “Si Vice Ganda kasi siya yung pinaka-spontaneous sa Showtime at saka kahit anong gawin niya niya so seamlessly sobrang nakakatawa siya, sobrang automatically nakakatawa siya kasi sense of humor niya talaga yun. Hindi siya yung pilit na nagpapatawa. ‘Pag may joke siya kahit hindi siya mismomg joke matatawa ka pa rin sa kanya,” he explained.
Enrique Gil admitted he admires Vice’s intellect and quick wit. “He just steals the show all the time. Yung mga adlibs niya, mga pasabog niya, mga jokes niya.”
Jane Oineza, on the other hand, looks up to Vice more with how he is off camera, “Ang dami kasi niyang napapauso, natutuwa ako sa pagiging humble niya, sa pagiging nakakatawa niya and as a person talaga.”
Pasion de Amor star Ejay Falcon said Vhong Navarro is his top choice. “Kasi parang lahat ng mga jokes niya bumebenta sa akin at saka kasi nakakasama ko siya off-cam, nakaka-basketball ko siya and kung ano siya sa camera, ganun din siya off-cam kaya natutuwa ako,” he admitted. His co-star Arci Munoz said although she doesn’t have a favorite host, she loves watching Ryan Bang’s segment the most.
Kathryn Bernardo did not think twice before telling us her kuya Jhong Hilario is who she loves to watch on the show. “Si kuya Jhong kasi lalo na nung mga Sample days niya hindi siya nauubusan everyday at saka kapag nag-po-portray siya sa mga story story nila na mga iba ibang characters and all, para lang silang nangloloko pero nakakaaliw silang panoorin,” she said.
Comedian Ryan Rems chose Jugs Jugueta and Jhong as his top picks but not for the usual reasons. “Bukod kay Dumbo sino pa ba? Mahirap na tanong yan kung sino paborito ko kasi good vibes naman sila sa akin eh. Pero siguro dahil pareho kami ni Jugs (Jugueta) na maaaga lagi siguro siya at saka yung susunod pang maaga na si Jhong. Sila yung mga maagang kasama kong dumarating kaya sila yung nakakakuwentuhan ko lagi,” he explained.
It was Billy Crawford’s language skills that made Pasion de Amor actor Jake Cuenco single him out. “I like Billy the most. I like him best kasi parang I admire Billy kasi the fact that he can switch his English and Tagalog on and off, nakaka-cater siya sa masa at sa mga iba pa. Kumbaga anyone can speak Tagalog and English at the same time but I think that humor-wise or comedy-wise, that’s a difficult thing. So I think Billy has that locked down and I find that very admirable because I can’t even be comedic in one language let alone two. Kuha niya yung lasa ng lahat,” he shares.
For Liza Soberano, watching Anne Curtis on the show is an ongoing lesson in everything from acting, singing, and handling fans. “Si Ate Anne Curtis favorite ko kasi nakakatuwa siya and parang wala talaga siyang wall kapag nag-ho-host at nag-pe-perform. Parang she’s so natural, she’s so lively and bubbly. Hindi siya natatakot magmukhang pangit or magmukhang weirdo kaya natutuwa ako sa kanya,” she said.
Some stars did not want to choose a host because they admit they appreciate the Showtime family as one collective group. “Wala naman akong paborito, lahat kasi sila teamwork eh so masaya silang panuorin na magkakasama, hindi paisa-isa,” admittrf Daniel Padilla.
Nasaan Ka nang Kailangan Kita ladies Vina Morales and Denise Laurel both think the Showtime group is a good team. “Hindi ako makapili ng isa lang kasi feeling ko sila nag-ko-complete ng isang total package. Parang each of them have unique qualities na when you put them together, it makes them awesome. Parang one ultimate show,” Denise said. Vina admitted she thinks they all add an important contribution to the show. “Wala kang pipiliin na isa lang kasi lahat sila may talento, meron sila lahat nabibigay na bahagi ng talento nila sa show na ito. it may be in singing, it may be in comedy or sa acting, pampatawa,” she added.
