It’s Showtime’s Genie-Nga (Christine Samson) and Genie-Pon (Donald Neri) emerged from the huge jar we get to see on the noontime show’s “Piling Lucky” segment. And just like the usual, they brought their competitive spirit on the set of TWBA.
Before introducing themselves a la Miss Universe candidates, Genie-Pon spoke Thai and Russian while Genie-Nga showed her dancing skills as their edge over one another. Genie-Pon used to work as a wardrobe coordinator and stylist for It’s Showtime before becoming an on-cam talent. Meanwhile, Genie-Nga started as a commercial model and video game streamer along with popular cosplay star Alodia Gosiengfiao.

The second gap of the episode opened with Boy Abunda showing his ‘genie’ moves while inside the magical jar. Genie-Pon played along well with the issue that the stylist is causing a ‘rift’ between It’s Showtime’s host Vhong Navarro and his wife, Tanya Bautista. The wardrobe coordinator said that it was nothing but just a source of banter among the hosts. Genie-Pon has never been in a relationship but mentioned Bidaman John Padilla when Tito Boy asked about the genie’s crush, “Crush ko lang siya. Kumukuha lang ako sa kanya ng inspirasyon.”
Meanwhile, Genie-Nga is also linked with another It’s Showtime’s host Jhong Hilario. She clarified that the on-screen pairing is just another joke initiated by the Unkabogable Star Vice Ganda. Genie-Nga is an NBSB (No Boyfriend Since Birth) as well and she said that being single is her choice. The bewitching lady’s celebrity crushes are Jericho Rosales and JM de Guzman.
Taking on the Fast Talk segment, Genie-Pon revealed that she wishes to become prettier and have a fairer skin. She considers her lips as the sexiest part of her body and she would choose family over money. If she’d become an animal, Genie-Pon would be a horse.
Genie-Nga would choose a moreno guy over a mestizo one. She picked love over money and compared herself to adobo. Genie-Nga named Piolo Pascual as the sexiest man in the Philippines. If granted one wish from a magic lamp, Genie-Nga would ask for everyone’s happiness.
The new viral talent discoveries delivered a short message for their supporters and avid It’s Showtime viewers.
