It’s Showtime took us to a trip to several countries on Saturday, March 12, with the outfits the show’s hosts donned during the episode.
As the show began, Amy Perez first flaunted her Philippines-inspired garb, before Ryan Bang walked the stage in his native South Korean hanbok. Ion Perez then presented his American-influenced casual attire, followed by Jugs Jugueta’s military uniform embodying Indonesian roots. Teddy Corpuz showed his affinity for the “land of the brave”, Scotland, with the country’s distinctive wear, as Karylle brandished her stylish gown that uniquely epitomizes India. Kim Chiu then presented her eye-catching version of China’s traditional outfit. Ogie Alcasid, for this part, donned the South African costume, while Vhong Navarro wore a garb that was truly representative of Jamaica. Finally, Vice Ganda hit the stage with a chic variety of the identifiable Japanese kimono.
Apart from their multi-national garb, the It’s Showtime family also announced that host Ogie Alcasid has donated proceeds from the “Palarong Pang-Madla” segment to the chosen recipients this week.
Ogie said that due to the rising oil prices, it is but natural for him to choose public utility vehicle drivers, particularly tricycle drivers as beneficiaries. In this video, we witness Ogie visiting the tricycle passenger terminal to meet with the drivers asking how the rising petroleum prices have affected their earnings. Learning about their huge losses, Ogie told the drivers the good news that he was giving them P3,000 each as a gift from It’s Showtime.
All the nine drivers who received the donation were all exultant, and said the money they received from Ogie will surely help their families.
The episode not only provided that opportunity to help struggling tricycle drivers, but also gave viewers a delightful visual treat with their around-the-world OOTDs.
We see our favorite It’s Showtime hosts Vice Ganda, Vhong Navarrro, Ogie Alcasid, Kim Chiu, Amy Perez, Karylle, Ryan Bang, Jugs Jugueta, Teddy Corpuz, Jackie Gonzaga, and Ion Perez all suited up with costumes representing various countries onstage.
