Eat Bulaga accused of handpicking contestants
EAT BULAGA – A social media user raised concerns about the alleged handpicking of contestants during the initial episode of the revamped version of the noontime show.
A certain LeoBrando Manlapaz took to the social networking site, Facebook wherein he revealed his findings, stating that one of the participants in a segment of the show had already been chosen and was not a random selection.
Manlapaz pointed out that a contestant named Lelet had a connection to one of the hosts, Buboy Villar, and had worked for one of the actor’s businesses. Furthermore, he claimed that the giveaway phone during the show was not genuinely distributed but merely part of a scripted act.
“Contestant nyo kunyari napili or talagang kasama scripted na.. Papremyo nyo di naman tunay na makukuha ng mga pipila at magtyatyga sa labas. Pinagloloko nyo mga manonood ahiiiiii,” expressed Manlapaz.
The netizen recognized the contestant named Lelet from one of Buboy’s vlogs. Furthermore, other netizens who followed Buboy’s social media accounts also recognized the same contestant.
“Yan ung nsa paresan nkita ko yan sa blog ni jelai nung nag prank kay buboy,” commented Leear, another netizen. “Pati yung IPhone na papremyo nila na tumatawag kunwari sa viewers pero wala namang information nung nanalo,” added Mark, another netizen.
