During the It’s Showtime’s “Classic Showtime” segment aired Tuesday, October 1, Vice Ganda admitted that Jhong Hilario was his first love in the noontime show.
After interviewing a couple in New Remix Fashionista, Jhong asked the leader if he’s allowing the boyfriend-girlfriend relationship within the group.
With this, Vice said it is okay nowadays, citing Billy Crawford and Coleen Garcia as examples. Billy and Coleen's love story began when they worked together in It's Showtime in 2013. Crawford was already one of the show’s mainstays at the time when Garcia was added to its roster of hosts.
Anne Curtis remembered that Director Bobet Vidanes’ original rule was romantic relationship among the hosts was not allowed during the show’s first season. Anne then jokingly concluded that it was the reason Vice and Hilario did not end up together.
Nevertheless, Vice said Hilario was his first love in the program.
“Si Teddy (Corpuz) ang first crush ko pero ang first love ko sa Showtime, si Jhong,” the Unkabogable Star revealed.
