Response to Noontime show scandal

Good day everyone, This’ll be my first ever blog post. So ya’ll can expect a lot more blog post from me. I’ll keep you updated with all the topics that I'm interested in and events that happened to my life and maybe along the way, we’ll learn a lesson or two. So please, come with me in this journey.

Now first up…

Wowowiee Vs Eat Bulaga

1st up, I’m pretty amused with the drama that these two celebrities (Willie and Joey) had produced.

Don’t mistake me guys, I’m not the type of person who watches noontime shows on a daily basis (mostly I’m asleep at that hour or I’m busy playing online games), you’ll most likely find me in my bed watching Discovery Channel during that time because that slot coincides with mythbusters, which I find very interesting.

Now, unto the issue…

In this video, it shows that Willie mistakenly pulled out “0” in the box that he said contained the 2 million jackpot, later on he pulled out “2” from the same box.

Here’s Willie’s Statement…

Here’s Joey’s reply…

In this video, Joey attacks a “celebrity” (Its obvious who he is pertaining to). Nuff said.

My Opinion to this issue:

The first time that I watched Willie’s mistake in pulling out the slide, to be honest, it made my eyebrows twitch. But I finished the video first then also watched Joey’s reply.

Lemme comment first on Joey regarding this issue.

Ever since I was a kid, Eat Bulaga was still on Ch 2. I remember watching the tandem of Tito, Vic and Joey as stars of this long running variety show. I did watch Eat Bulaga when I was still a kid, but when the time that they transferred to GMA 7 to give way to APO hiking society show, I’ve lost track of what happened to the show. The only news I hear from them is from my mother who comments on how Joey’s side remarks always pertains to shows that compete with his show on that timeslot ie. APO, MTB, Wowowee.

As I watched Joey’s reply, I, somewhat became a little bit irritated on the way he continuously repeat details like “napanood ko to sa internet, sa dyaryo, sa radio, sa komentarista”, “ayon sa video sa youtube”, “ayon sa mga napakikinggan nyo sa internet”. Gawd, everybody knows what happened already. You don’t have to tell the story again (I’ve watched Willie’s video and your reply, and some details that Joey told his audience are crap). By continuously repeating details, he is successful in blurring some of the details of what truly happened, he is successful in adding insult to the injury of Willie and his staff, and lastly, he makes himself look good with all this comments that he made about the show and the host (which up until now, he doesn’t have the balls to name).

“Ang bata pag nadapa, tinatanong natin kung bakit”. Really now? If you really cared about the kid, you’ll pick him right up and brush the dirt of his pants. Imagine you’re a parent then your child fell to the ground, are you gonna just stare at your kid, and then ask him why he fell down? Or are you gonna pick him up, treat his injuries then move on? If I were your kid, I’d complain why I had you as a father. A father who only cared about himself, his ratings and not his family (showbiz and the artist).

“Explain before you complain”. Well, the explanation to what happened there was pretty logical (I’ll come to this later) if you’re the type of person who doesn’t think bad of other people. Especially coming from Joey who spent like 12 years of his life in noontime show processes.

Now unto what I thought REALLY HAPPENED to the show…

First, let us put ourselves in the shoes of the manager of the show, the props people, and the management.

The Wilyonaryo show consist of 12 boxes, 4 of which contains the prizes (2 million, 1 million, 500K, House and lot) technically giving the contestant 1 out of 3 chances to get a prize (33.33% of winning). If you are the staff or props person of the show, you would be thinking everyday on which colored boxes you would put the prizes right? And also you would be thinking of the most economical of doing it instead of having to repaint the boxes everyday with the number “2”, right?

The most efficient way of dealing with a contest like this is, make 12 boxes with different colors, then make 12 slides containing “0”, then make 4 slides marking the possible prizes. The benefit of this? You only have 4 slides to shuffle, you’ll just place the prize slide over the existing “0” slide. Its fast, it’s efficient and its economical. I think what happened to that event was Willie just made a mistake on pulling out that slide.

Of course a lot of you will say that I’m biased blah blah all that crap. To tell you, I’m not. I won’t reap any benefits writing this. If there will be any benefit that I’m gonna get in writing this, I want that benefit to be that all my readers opened up their minds by getting all the details first on an issue then producing constructive and intelligent comments and taking necessary actions so that bad things won’t happen again.

My bottom line to this issue is this. As far as I know, there are only two noontime shows who gets majority of the viewers during that time slot. Couldn’t you just share those viewers? Why do you keep on dragging each other down? You think you’ll gain respect doing that? You think you’ll up your ratings, yourself and your dignity by mutilating your opponents? Well, think again.

Welcome to the Matrix, este, the world of WWW authoring.

I never liked that scumbag Willie. I smelt a rat & lowlife pervert the first time I saw him. However, I respect Joey, who is a lot more than merely a host for a noontime show for the hoi polloi.

Since I don't watch noontime shows (since i'm in school around those times), I don't get how pulling out the "2" became a scam. haha. Paano ba yung game system ng wowowee? hmm.

Pero, I'm impressed with your feedback. Tsk. Both sides are just a bunch of bumbling idiots if they let an issue like this bring 'em down :D Taking advantage of each other. tsss.

oh, by the way, this is jessica a.k.a Jamie x)

hehehe grabe talk of the town talaga yang bangayan na yan...o well here's my side..honestly don't know talaga if may dayaan ba or what....

kasi gerald (fritz) may explanation ung management ng wowowe after Joey made a statement after Willie's comment..something like this

"nagkamali kami sa paglagay ng numbers, kasi its our second day of the new segment may mga pagkakamali...NAGING DALAWA ANG NUMBER NA NALAGAY NAMIN SA ISANG WHEEL..." (something like that)

so, yung sabi mo na baka 2 numbers each wheel i think d ganun un...hmmm possible na honest mistake kc its their second day nga...

ang mistake lang siguro nun was...sana after that segment may explanation sana from wowowe staff kung bakit ganun para maiwasan ang side comments... IMO lang...

for joey naman, don't like this guy...todo paninira lang ginagawa sa kabilang stations...puro rating whatsoever...

yun lang hahaha...nakicomment lang...
