Over the past 13 years, It’s Showtime has launched various fun segments, which include contests that showcase the talents, wisdom, all kinds of beauty, and even innate sense of humor of Filipinos, such as “BidaMan,” “Miss Q & A,” “Reina ng Tahanan,” “Mister Q & A,” “Gandang Babae,” “Gandang Lalake: Kuma-Career,” and “I am PoGay”.
And in December 2021, it introduced a new reality talent search that aims to celebrate women -- regardless if they are straight, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender – titled “Sexy Babe.” Well, unlike other beauty contests that we know, it’s not necessary for the contestants to have svelte figure or tall height, as long as they are 18 to 28 years old and unmarried. Besides, they must have a fun and bubbly personality, and be confidently sexy and beautiful member of the society since they will be judged according to how they present themselves on stage.
But more than the appeal, wit, and personality of the contestants, one of the things we watch out for in this search are their talents. While some really have the skills, there are some who still try, much to the amusement of everyone in the studio and of the madlang people watching at home.
And in this episode of Kapamilya Toplist, let’s look back on 10 of the funniest moments the hosts and these impressive Sexy Babe contestants.
Sexy Babe Michelle may have failed to completely convince Vice Ganda that she has resemblance with FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano actress Julia Montes, yet she’s able to amuse him with her song compositions and natural comicality.
Upon catching one of the cameramen sleeping, the Unkabogable Host brought one of the Sexy Babe ladies to him to wake him up through her belly dancing talent. And it worked as cameraman Joseph immediately woke up, jesting that he was just praying.
After enjoying Sexy Babe Sophia’s skills in playing Michael Buble’s “Sway” through the melodion, Vice Ganda then tried his hand on the instrument and showed off his hidden musical talent.
He and his co-hosts Vhong Navarro and Ogie Alcasid also had fun dancing Steps’ “5,6,7,8” with Sexy Babe Aaliyah, who he teased lacked energy, so they grooved to it twice. He and partner Ion Perez even had a sweet moment as he asked for water as he got thirsty after their energetic dance number.
We already know how a talented musician Kuys Jugs Jugueta is. But Vice had him unleash his dancing prowess by pitting him against Sexy Babe Lara in an on-the-spot fun dance showdown. And he didn’t fail to make us laugh, more so when he mimicked the main mascot a popular fast-food chain.
Vice Ganda weren’t able to hold his laughter towards the talent of Sexy Babe Day, as she wrongly played a few keys in her cover of the classic OPM song “Tanging Yaman,” not just once, but twice in her alto recorder flute.
As Sexy Babe Johaira showcased her amazing twerking skills, Vice called It’s Showtime dancer Neri on the stage to pit them on an on-the-spot twerking showdown. And both of them didn’t fail to impress. The contestant further astounded everyone with her powerful rendition of “Bang Bang,” which truly brought the house down. Not to mention that we were also entertained by how she danced and sang on loop at cue.
Meanwhile, Ogie wasn’t able to keep his balance when Sexy Babe Victoria exhibited some of the moves in the martial arts jiu jitsu. This made him utter “mapanganib ka.”
