Showbiz-related issues dominated the fifth episode of 4Ts: Top Ten Trending Topics on Wednesday, May 27.
Hosts Darla Sauler, DJ Jai Ho, and MJ Felipe opened the rundown by divulging that Pinoy Big Brother Otso Big Winner Yamyam Gucong has already joined the continuously increasing number of celebrities turning vloggers after launching his own YouTube channel recently. Named “YAMYAM’SVLOGS”, it has now raked in over one thousand subscribers, while his first-ever entry garnered more than four thousand views as of this writing.
It was succeeded by the announcement of Binibining Pilipinas Charities Inc regarding the indefinite postponement of the said pageant this year due to the quarantine restrictions strictly implemented by the government in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Landing on the eighth spot was KC Concepcion’s admission in the online talk show Tim Yap LIVE that she was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), a hormonal disorder common among women of productive age, which compelled her to step out of the limelight in the previous years.
As she called our ever-favorite lumpiang shanghai “good as hell” after getting a taste of it in an intimate party she attended on May 26, Grammy Award-winning American rapper Cardi B’s positive reaction on the Filipino food prepared by her aunt-in-law – which also included pancit and fruit salad – made it to 4Ts’ roster for today as well.
After it was announced that Broadway Diva Lea Salonga will be headlining the online musical event Bayanihan Musikahan this coming Friday, avid fans of her team-up with Aga Muhlach have been clamoring for the latter to appear on the show by making “AGA PLEASE SAY YES” trend on Twitter. The two were last seen together in the 1995 Olivia Lamasan romantic –drama flick “Sana Maulit Muli.”
Following the successful release of the “Bawal Lumabas (The Classroom Song)” last week, Kim Chiu recently tied up with online sensation DJ Loonyo to come up with the steps for the “Bawal Lumabas Trending Dance Challenge”, which she premiered through the vlog she uploaded on her YouTube channel two days ago. Aside from that, she also launched the “Bawal Lumabas” merchandise, which are T-shirts with three different designs and in different colors that are now available through the Bawal Lumabas Merch IG page. Proceeds of this merch will be for the benefit of Angel Locsin’s mass testing initiative and relief aids for quarantine-affected families.
And the topic that created the greatest hullabaloo is the appointment of James Reid as Department of Agriculture’s Ambassador for Food Security, which he shared on IG and had received mixed reactions from netizens. He committed to support the agency’s “Plant, Plant, Plant” project and to raise awareness regarding its other advocacies and programs.
Before the episode ended, MJ relayed that Angel Locsin will be including her 2015 Dodge Durango Sporty SUV in the list of items that will be sold in Shop and Share, an online shop that she and her celebrity friends re-launched this year in pursuit of raising funds to aid the government in increasing testing for COVID-19.
