Eat Bulaga Copying Showtimeby Boy Lopez
Many are now wondering if Eat Bulaga is deliberately copying its rival noontime show It’s Showtime. Fans are suspecting Eat Bulaga is copying segments of It’s Showtime like “That’s my Tomboy” with “That’s my Tambay” and now getting a lot of buzz with “I Am PoGay” about straight-looking gay guys showcasing their talent, Joey De Leon announced today that Eat Bulaga is holding an audition for a Super Sireyna like beauty contest but will use ugly gay guys in drag instead. They tentatively entitled it, Zombie Sirena. Eat Bulaga’s “Ang Joke Ko” segment is also like being turned into a “Sine Mo ‘To” of Showtime.
The bigger question is, why is Eat Bulaga doing all these when they are clearly ahead in the ratings game. Meanwhile, Eat Bulaga is not about being a copycat, it is holding an audition for its planned segment, Little Singing Star. I hope it is not a spin-off of Showtime’s Stars on 45. Auditions for Little Singing Star will be from 3-5PM, Monday to Friday in Broadway Centrum for talented kids, 8-12 years old. If interested, bring a photocopy of the Birth Certificate of the child, 3R whole body and close up pictures, and a photocopy of an ID of the child.
I Am Pogay Auditions are also on-going: Mon-Sat 3-6pm at AbsCbn Audience Entrance. Bring Valid ID, Pics, Audition Mats. Look for Danjosh Zacarias. It also has an online audition for those who cannot make it. Just email Pictures & Contact Info to firstname.lastname@example.org. Photo credits: FB and Twitter.
