Through the years, the fun-loving family of It’s Showtime is getting bigger and livelier with the arrival of new members. A few of them might have left due to personal reasons, but the additions to their ever-gregarious ensemble fittingly filled the void.
This includes the formation of the all-male group Hashtags and its counterpart, all-girl group GirlTrends, and new on-air personalities who delight the Madlang People. Among them are different guys who stood as the escorts to the contestants of Miss Q & A and two equally gorgeous and talented ladies who assist the hosts, notably Vice Ganda, in the segment.
We usually see them at the sides of the stage or at the back of the artists as they take on their primary roles as back-up dancers. However, through the generous effort of the Unkabogable Star to share the spotlight to the two of them, namely Jackque “Ate Girl” Gonzaga and Stephanie “Stephen” Robles, it has paved the way for them to be well-known among the audiences and have more exposure on television than they did before.
Jackque’s romantic yet hilarious impromptu banters with Vice during the Miss Q & A segment, which extends to comedic jabs pertaining to her stage entrances and her #OOTDs, have truly brought kilig to everyone every afternoon and spawned to their loveteam dubbed “ViceJack”.
On the other hand, Stephen has been omnipresent on-screen, but only got recognized when regular host Anne Curtis noticed and praised her glowing beauty during the “Wit Lang” portion last January, and was introduced by Vice to everyone as a transgender. This confused their co-host Jhong Hilario, arguing that she is indeed a biologically female. From simply dancing and being witty to the spontaneous remarks of the comedian, she was able to expose her impressive singing prowess to everyone.
