And here five of those rare, unforgettable TV moments that created so much buzz everywhere:
1. LizQuen confirms relationship
In a shocking revelation, Liza Soberano and Enrique Gil first admitted they are a real couple on GGV. While taking the Kuryentanong Challenge, Enrique truthfully answered Vice Ganda’s question, “Kayo Na Ba?” to avoid that “electric” shock from the toy lie detector, by saying “Yes.” Enrique would later say that he and Liza had been in a relationship for more than two years, which Liza corroborated.
2. Piolo kisses a fan
Netizens were shookt, fuming in envy, wallowing in jealousy as they witnessed Piolo Pascual kissing a fan on the lips after Vice asked the studio audience who among them wants to be kissed by the Ultimate Heartthrob. One particular audience member got his attention when she said she wanted Piolo to kiss her on the lips. She would then shout Toni Gonzaga’s famous “I love you, Piolo!” line to Piolo from a soda commercial. After which, Piolo would grabbed her head and kissed her directly on the lips.
3. Ang unang pagkikita nina Ion at Vice
Vice Ganda confirmed his relationship with It’s Showtime’s “Kuya Escort” Ion Perez after winning the show’s 10th anniversary Magpasikat, after months of their kilig, wacky banters in various segments. But little did we know that they actually first met on GGV, with the help of child sensation Carlo Mendoza. Carlo, acting as the host, called on Ion, who was then part of the crowd as a male pageant winner. He would introduce Ion to Vice, sing together, and begin that fateful bond.
4. Seeing the humorous side of Ma’am Charo
Who would think that ABS-CBN Chief Content Officer and Maalaala Mo Kaya host Charo Santos-Cancio has a humorous side? Well, Vice Ganda revealed this on the show as he made ma’am Charo read a letter “MMK-style” using the beki language. The result was sidesplitting.
5. The birth of TNT Boys
The TNT Boys, composed of Keifer Sanchez, Mackie Empuerto, and Francis Concepcion began their phenomenal rise to prominence after competing in Tawag Ng Tanghalan Kids on It’s Showtime. But their appearance on GGV further amassed a loyal following and proved their singing prowess as a trio as they rendered a “special” showdown version of their signature song “Listen.”
Truly these moments are unforgettable and made Gandang Gabi Vice deeply etched as an entertaining, amusing, informative, and revealing talk show viewers anticipate each week.
