Latest News Philippines: Willie says new noontime show ‘Wowowillie’ just an extension of ‘Eat Bulaga’ – Journal.com.ph:
TV5 is set premiere Willie Revillame’s noontime comeback, Wowowillie, this Saturday (January 26) from 11:30 a.m.to 2:30p.m. Coinciding with the controversial host’s 52nd birthday on Sunday, TV5 execs say that what awaits audiences is another big TV special showcasing over 70 stars and performers and big prizes to celebrate his return to daytime.
“We’re very excited to bring Wowowillie to every household because this is TV5’s first daily noontime variety show. The management feels that the network is ready to field Wowowillie in the noontime slot in our mission to provide our daytime viewers more options,” said Perci Intalan, TV5’s first vice president for Creative and Entertainment Production, in an earlier interview.
Willie will still be joined by Mariel Rodriguez, Grace Lee and Camille Villar in the new daily noontime show. Kuya Wil also introduces TV5 princess Arci Munoz, Ava Jugueta of PYT (Pretty Young Thing), sexy comedienne Ethel Booba and show mainstay Lovely Abella to complete the hosts’ line-up.
The show introduces new segment formats that will bring fun and excitement to daytime in its new home, the Wowowillie Studio, a 1,100-seater state-of-the-art studio along Quezon Avenue, formerly Delta Theater, that houses the most advanced equipment for live shows.
Pinoy Explorer host Aga Muhlach and Kidlat lead star Derek Ramsay are expected to appear on Saturday’s show. Some of TV5’s rising stars, including Ritz Azul, Eula Caballero, Jazz Ocampo, Meg Imperial and Carla Humphries, will also join Artista Academy’s Sophie Albert, Vin Abrenica, Chanel Morales, Shaira Mae, Mark Neumann and Akihiro Blanco in the celebration. Kapatid leading men Daniel Matsunaga, Wendell Ramos, JC De Vera, Edgar Allan Guzman, Rainier Castillo, Alwyn Uytingco and Martin Escudero will also be present.
Mr. Pure Energy Gary V, soul siren Nina, Yeng Constantino and maestro Ryan Cayabyab are also slated to perform. Black Eyed Peas’ Apl.De.Ap, meanwhile, will join Pinoy rock bands Kamikazee and Parokya ni Edgar in one epic number. Vocal powerhouse Side A, Wency Cornejo, Ebe Dancel, Lloyd Umali, Luke Mijares, Brenan, Lou Bonnevie and Basil Valdez will also perform for the studio audience and home viewers alike.
At the presscon for Wowowillie at Willie’s own Wil’s Events Place on Esguerra Avenue in Quezon City (very near his old studio, ABS-CBN), the controversial host explains: “Hindi ko na po iniisip ang kumpetisyon. Ang Wowowillie po ay magiging extension lang ng Eat Bulaga. Nagkausap na po kami ni Joey (de Leon) at ayos na po kami. Ito po ay para sa mga tao na lang. Para makatulong po kami at makapagbigay ng saya.”
Willie says that it will be his last show. “Ito na po ang last title ng show ko. Hindi ko po ito ginagawa para sa sarili ko kundi sa mga taong umaasa sa show.” —with a report by EUGENE E. ASIS
