Jackie Gonzaga has come a long way since the day Vice Ganda spotted her potential while she was carrying a bowl of questions for the It’s Showtime Miss Q and A segment. A few more banter with the Unkabogable Star later, Jackie secured a spot in the noontime show as a host, joining its frontliners Vice, Vhong Navarro, Anne Curtis, Karylle, Jugs Jugueta and Teddy Corpuz.
Recently, Jackie impressed everyone in the Magpasikat 2021 anniversary prod alongside teammates Vice and Ryan Bang. Her amusing and touching performance just validated that she can go for both drama and comedy – like what she said in her TWBA Fast Talk Challenge in 2018. Check out her other revelations in the segment:
Jackie, fondly called ‘Ate Girl,’ believes “tiyaga” is more powerful than “sipag.” Hip-hop is her favorite type of dance. Water is her ultimate drink and the living room is her favorite part of the house. The first thing she does in the morning is turn off the alarm clock.
If she’s an animal, she’d be a pig. If she’s a cartoon character, she’d be Piglet. She’d rather choose the one she loves than the one who loves her.
At the time, Jackie played rivals with Bela Padilla on It’s Showtime. They would jestingly fight over Vice’s attention. Asked who’s sexier between them, she willingly gave it to Bela. For Jackie, the kindest It’s Showtime host is Karylle.
She picked AC Bonifacio as the best dancer in the country. She named Gerald Anderson as the sexiest man in the Philippines. She mentioned eyes as the sexiest part of Vice’s face.
Her life’s hashtag at the time was “umuuluan ng biyaya.” Completing the sentence, she said, “Ako si Jackie at ako ay super blessed.”
