REAL NAMES of your It’s Showtime hosts

They absolutely never fail to amuse and provide us with good vibes through their hilarious banters and funny shenanigans from Mondays to Saturdays. But did you already know the real names of our beloved It’s Showtime family?  

Just in case you haven’t known yet, read on and go through this gallery to find out the birth names of some of them! 

First off is Ate Girl Jackie, whose real name is as unique as her bubbly personality – Jackque Gyl Gonzaga.  

Ever since he started his showbiz career by being part of Pinoy Big Brother Teen Clash 2010, Ryan Bang has been using the English counterpart of his Korean name Bang Hyun-sung as his screen name. 

His beloved Ate Karylle may be using a mononym, but she’s been proud of her full name Ana Karylle Padilla Tatlonghari. Her aunt Amy Perez, meanwhile, has been using her nickname ever since she began in showbiz many years ago, as her birth name is Maria Armida Parale Perez. 

Being among the most famous persinalities in the local entertainment scene, there’s definitely no doubt that the madlang people already know that Unkabogable Host Vice Ganda’s real name is Jose Marie Borja Viceral. On the other hand, you’ll be surprised to find out that his partner Ion Perez is actually Benigno Dungo Perez in real life. 

She’s indeed one of the brightest stars in the country at present. However, her real name Kimberly Sue Yap Chiu is too long, thus it was shortened into Kim Chiu – a name fit for a Big Winner – after her triumphant stint in PBB Teen Edition 1

For sure, many people were surprised to discover a huge and powerful voice, as well as various talents inside the petite build of Ogie Alcasid when he was still starting in showbiz. But, arguably, you’ll be more astonished to know that the OPM icon’s real name is Herminio Jose Lualhati Alcasid Jr.. 

Another It’s Showtime family member with a surprising birth name is Vhong Navarro, as his parents named him Ferdinand Hipolito Navarro. Too far from his screen name, right? 

The dynamic duo of Jugs and Teddy also use nicknames derived from their real names. Jugs got his from his surname as he’s born Eric Rommel Jugueta, while Teddy got his alias from his birthname Theodore M. Corpuz, which he also shares with his beloved son since he is his “Jr”. 

Whose birth name surprised you, Kapamilya? 

Get your daily dose of good vibes and laughter by not missing an episode of It’s Showtime, Mondays to Saturdays, on Kapamilya Channel, Kapamilya Online Live, A2Z Channel 11, iWantTFC, and TFC. You may also watch episode highlights on ABS-CBN Entertainment’s official website and YouTube Channel.
