As well as the showbiz revelations that never fail to leave the viewers stupefied, tearful, and even ‘kilig,’ the Fast Talk segment remains one of the most anticipated moments in every Tonight With Boy Abunda episode. This challenge is given to a celebrity taking on the TWBA hot seat for the first time. While it seems just a harmless slambook-type questionnaire at first, the game can get a bit racy and sometimes hilarious when veteran host Boy Abunda begins to throw in the ultimate Fast Talk questions.
Some could easily give an honest and casual retort. Others have to weigh their sexy options carefully while there are also guests who love to pretend innocent.
In this video, we collated 18 of the most amusing answers to one of The King of Talk’s naughty questions, “Is it lights on or lights off?”
Without reluctance and explaining, Ellen Adarna said she prefers to have the lights turned off. Joining her on the group of lights-off fans are Bamboo Manalac and Sunshine Cruz. Tall, dark, and handsome men Richard Gomez and Zanjoe Marudo prefer switching the lights off as well. Anne Curtis also replied with “off” followed by her trademark boisterous laughter.
Dawn Zulueta prefers keeping things illuminated, so does Star for All Seasons Vilma Santos. As daring as she is, Beauty Gonzalez coated her voice with sultriness as she retorted with, “On, Tito Boy! Gusto ko makita lahat.” Ian Veneracion would also choose to keep the lights on.
There are guests who peppered the thrill with humor. Luis Manzano’s response was, “sabay” while Bayani Agbayani kept it hilarious by going for “blinking.”
Maja Salvador acted clueless of what Boy Abunda meant, thus she was given the choice to interpret the question any way she wanted. Sinking in her seat, Maja bashfully uttered, “on.” Broadway superstar Lea Salonga managed to get away with the grilling with a smart response, “Depends on what? If I’m reading a book, the lights better be on.”
Pinoy Big Brother hosts Toni Gonzaga, Bianca Gonzalez, and Mariel Rodriguez-Padilla unravelled their different personalities just by answering the same question. Toni’s shy “off” response was a stark contrast to Mariel’s straightforward revelations. The latter frankly said, “On! Mas maganda. Kasi ako ‘yung pinakamatagal nang may asawa. Ako nga, gusto ko pa nakikita ko talaga.” Meanwhile, Bianca settled for “shadowy, dramatic lighting.”
