Ryan Bang, good riddance. Party party!
Korean-Filipino comedian Ryan Bang finally says goodbye to his Showtime family. After almost a year of being a “hurado” in the number 1 daytime show in the Philippines, the “madlang pipol” has finally voted him out.
It was obviously unexpected in the part of the co-hurados and the hosts, especially to his nanay Vice Ganda. While this Saturday was the happy comeback of the host and Kitchen Musical star, Karylle Tatlonghari, it was a heart-rending goodbye to the holder of the title, longest standing hurado of Showtime.
Umagang Kay Ganda hosts Andrei and Jeffrey Tam were kinda expected to be voted out. However, it was definitely a shocker to everyone when Ryan Bang was the next name to be called, leaving Sample King Jhong Hilario and Dimples Romana as the currently surviving hurados.
Goodbye, Ryan Bang. You still have Banana Split, anyway. Or you can work as a double for Budoy. And to Dimples and Jhong, way to go! I hope you to will beat the record of Ryan Bang.
However, after the commercial break, Dimples Romana made an announcement that she was really supposed to leave that day. For the first time in Showtime, a surviving hurado relinquished her position to an evicted hurado.
Quoting Anne Curtis, it was such a self-less act for Dimples Romana to give her seat and giving way for Ryan Bang to come back.
Indeed, it was really self-less of Dimples. But I think it wasn’t really necessary. The audience apparently don’t want Ryan Bang in Showtime anymore. His co-workers in Showtime do. But the show is all about the “madlang pipol”. I hope the director reconsiders this if they still want to keep their position as the number 1 daytime show in the Philippines.
Anyway, to Ryan Bang, good luck to the next voting out. Goodbyes are more painful the second time around.
And I was right.
The director, Bobot Vidanes, made it official that Ryan Bang is out of the show. It’s the right thing to do in the perspectives of entertainment, business, and logic.
