Who’s ready for three minutes of laughter? Asking the gregarious, super-funny Melai Cantiveros to read and react to online comments about her, we get contagious squeals and vibrant entertainment!
The first comment is from a Pinoy Big Brother viewer who learned to love the show because of Melai’s authenticity and charm. It says: “Naalala ko, noon nababaduyan ako sa PBB… Then nakita ko si Melai, ‘di naman kagandahan…” Melai was quick to react, “Ang sakit naman ng sinabi mo!”
She continued reading: “Para siyang may magic talaga. Gusto kong subaybayan ang PBB nang dahil sa kanya. ‘Di siya plastic magsalita at kumilos. ‘Di niya kinakahiya kahit mali ang words na sinasabi niya at kino-correct siya. Dinadaan niya lang sa tawa at ‘yun ang gusto ko sa kanya. Totoong tao siya, she has a pure heart.”
By the manner she would react to such compliments, it’s obvious that Melai hasn’t changed over the years. She’s still the same down to earth funny gal we all loved inside Kuya’s house. She said she’d rather keep it real than pretend to be ‘sosy’ or someone she’s not.
“Thank you so much. Feeling ko naman birthday ko na dahil sa sinabi mo sa akin. Nakakahiya minsan ang ginagawa ko pero iniisip ko na lang, laban na lang basta may sweldo. Charing lang! Laban na lang kasi wala naman akong magagawa. Hindi naman ako pwedeng mag-feeling sosyal kasi wala naman sa mukha,” she quipped.
The next comment reads: “Napaka-pure ‘yung ganito and rare sa showbiz industry. I’m a Melai fan ever since and ‘di ako nagkamali noon.”
Melai suddenly turned bashful, flattered by the good words from the loving fan, “Nakakahiya naman! Thank you so much naman dahil nakakataba ng puso ‘yung sinasabi mo.”
A netizen pointed out how Melai remained humble and fun over the years. The tweet: “I love that her facial expression never changed, her ‘char char’ and ‘over’ reactions are still there. Showbiz did not change her.”
For Melai, the ability to entertain people is a talent bestowed by the Lord, so she thanked Him for that, “Thank you, Lord! Si Lord ang dahilan kung bakit nata-touch ang hearts ninyo. Siyempre, nobody is perfect naman, nobody is… nobody is… hindi ko na alam sasabihin ko bakit ko kasi in-enter ‘yun?”
After the hilarious struggle to find the right words, she continued, “Hindi mo mape-please lahat. ‘Yun pala ang gusto kong sabihin, so ito parang na-please ko sila, so thank you, Lord Jesus Christ sa pag-touch ng mga hearts ninyo.”
People are so drawn to Melai’s natural funny ways. Another netizen remarked: “’Pag siya nagbibiro napaka-okay lang kahit inuumpisahan niya lahat sa biro kasi gano’n talaga siya, eh. ‘Di siya nakakairita in any way. Nakakatuwa talaga siya.” Melai shrieked and made funny faces!
Coincidentally, the next comment is about her trademark grating squeal: “Melai, paano mo ba ginagawa ‘yang pag-irit mo na iyan? ‘Di ko magaya-gaya.”
The Magandang Buhay host loves to make high-pitched noise when happy, excited, or feeling ‘kilig,’ “Ganito lang, gagawin mo lang i-feel mo lang na parang na-excite ka. Doon ko lang ine-express ang kaligayahan at excitement ko.”
The last message was from a netizen asking about Baby Dengue, the pretend baby she and Jason Francisco were tasked to take care of inside the PBB house in 2009. Diehard MelaSon fans jokingly calls Baby Dengue as the couple’s ‘panganay.’
Baby Dengue is alive, according to Melai, “Nasa GenSan siya. Medyo na-erase na nga ang mukha ni Baby Dengue kasi ‘di ba drawing lang. Pero nasa bahay siya, na-preserve namin siya. Naiwan na lang siya sa GenSan para doon na lang siya maghasik ng lagim!” Melai promised to feature Baby Dengue in one of their upcoming vlogs.
Melai always gets the laughs so check out this video for your daily dose of good vibes!
