Wowowee “Wilyonaryo Game Show Scandal”

September 1, 2007

The Senate is going to look into the controversial Wowowee Game Show scandal after Eat Bulaga host and comedian Joey De Leon appealed to the higher house to probe the issue.

De Leon describes the game show scandal as more popular than any sex video made in the Philippines. Check YouTube and some blogs and you’ll be surprised this issue has already hooked the interests of most internet users and even surpassed the resurrected “Hello Garci issue” in terms of popularity.

A number of commentators in the world’s most popular video channel alleged that ABS-CBN, the television station that produces the controversial noontime show, has been trying to do some damage control by bribing tabloids and newspaper writers to either stay mum on the issue or write something good about the game show and its host.

The issue dubbed as “Hello Papi” deserves Senate inquiry because it affects the viewers particularly the  less fortunate contestants, said de Leon.

Here’s De Leon’s statement that was also sent to the Philippine Entertainment Portal:

“Kung meron kaming sinasabi dito sa aming program (Eat Bulaga!) ito ay para sa mga nanonood sa amin. Alam namin ang hirap ng mga audience para makapasok at manood ng aming programa. Alam din namin ang hirap na pinagdadaanan para makasali sa contest. Kaya dito sa programa namin, sinisigurado namin na malinis, walang hokus pokus, at parehas ang laban ng bawat contestant na sumasali.

“Ngayon, kung may tinamaan kami sa aming mga sinasabi ‘bato-bato sa langit ang tamaan ay huwag magagalit.’ Wala kaming binabanggit na pangalan o programa. Kaya lang, ang tanong ng tao sa You Tube, sa TV, sa diyaryo, sa radio, at mga taong nag-complain sa DTI: Bakit may dobleng numero sa isang gulong? Iyon ang sagutin mo [Willie]. Hindi tungkol sa akin ang isyu.”

Meanwhile, the comedy trio of Vic Sotto, Tito Sotto and De Leon is willing to share their expertise to the Senate that is probing the “Hello Papi” scandal. Also, click here for the video response of de Leon.

    Well give me an update, it’s been quite sometimes, it has the same issue it’s old too boring, but in fairness Joey is really a smart person, he is very articulate compared to Willie and you know listening to a person that articulate is very encouraging that you think you learn something.
