While you may not expect Vice Ganda to get paired with a woman on-air, his unanticipated tandems have brought so much enjoyment and kilig among the madlang people on It’s Showtime.
Such as the delightful twist in 2013 when Vice jokingly asked co-host Karylle if she had a crush on him given that he had always been on the receiving end of her constant teasing. One thing led to another and the ViceRylle tandem was born and trended not only in the country but also worldwide, with rabid shippers everywhere rooting for them. The hype just toned down when Karylle got married to Spongecola frontman Yael Yuzon in 2014.
And, last year, Vice then noticed a pretty It’s Showtime dancer, who’s tasked to hold a fishbowl that contains slips of paper bearing questions for Miss Q and A contestants to pick. Smitten, Vice then calls his “Ate Girl” back. His succeeding “romantic” verbal exchange with “Ate Girl” whose name is Jackque Gonzaga would then light up and excite the crowd—something that has become a kilig staple the madling people eagerly anticipate each day. And thus, the ViceJack pair was now on everyone’s lips.
As Vice and Jackque’s kilig-filled banter leaves viewers lovestruck, enter frequent guest host Bela Padilla, who had since been “obsessively” trying to lure Vice away from “Ate Girl” and become “her own.” Such attempts include replacing Jackque in handing out questions to Miss Q & A contestants and writing love poems. And even if she’s the obvious “third wheel” in the “love triangle,” Bela would have her own supporters shipping the ViceBela pair-up.
And as we observe how “in-demand” Vice is in the eyes of these lovely ladies, we came up with a fun Kapamilya Poll on ABS-CBN Official Facebook to ask netizens who among his pairings or tandems bring the most kilig, is it ViceRylle, ViceJack or ViceBela?
A majority of netizens chose ViceRylle as the pair that brought the most kilig, given that Vice and Karylle shared a multi-awarded team-up that was widely followed by a passionate fandom. Some commenters see them as the “original” and “genuine,” with their intimacy and affection towards each other quite unforgettable even if their pairing happened many years back.
At a very close second is ViceJack, whose on-cam pleasantries electrify netizens to no end. Merely hearing Vice call “Jackque!” and seeing them meet face to face already brings them kilig as their chemistry as a unique “loveteam” is undeniable.
ViceBela is also a netizen favorite, owing to Bela’s very believable affection and “obsession” towards Vice.
Indeed, Vice and his on-cam “love affairs” delight the madlang people and bring kilig vibes more than an ordinary onscreen love team. Many hope they were true while others just savor those kilig moments. But regardless, they bring pure joy and excitement that brighten up our days as we watch It’s Showtime weekdays at noontime.
