Last week I was given a schedule to join...contestants are given 1.5 minutes to impress the judges and jurors. The judges will decide if they will buzz you out during your performance while the jurors will decide on the winner.
The night before the 8am taping...I told the coordinator that I am not joining anymore because of some profesional concerns...naturally, the coordinator got upset and since I don't want any troubles, I ended up being at the studio a few minutes before 8am the ff morning. I had my old suit with me and Nicolo...plus Don Dominador which I was planning to use for the interview which they did not allow. No props in the interview pala... :)
There were 8 contestants...I was the 8th. During the contest, yung iba na buzz out so I prayed na hwag lang ako ma buzz out happy na ako...then I won! Then I had to face the defending champion, a fantastic balancer named Brian. Napaka humble at mabait...and of course very talented. Masaya na nga ako hwag lang ma-buzz out tapos nanalo pa sa elimination...imagine how happy I was when I won over the defending champion. :)
Now the problem...the next episode needed to be recorded the same day. I had no extra clothes with me so I mixed and matched a shirt and the suit...and although it did not appear to be much different, it was better than wearing exactly the same outfit for an episode which will be aired a week after the 1st.
Then the act...thank God I brought Don Dominador. He awed the crowd, jurors and judges. Actually both Nicolo and Dom charmed the crowd. One of the judges, Ms Amy Perez even asked Nicolo to be in her kid's party and told Nicolo "You only...don't bring Wanlu!"
It was an unexpected win...and will hopefully be a pleasant surprise to my wife and kids...
...TIL NOW MY WIFE DOES NOT KNOW I WON. WHEN I GOT HOME, I TOLD HER I LOST AND GAVE HER THE P5,000 CONSOLATION PRIZE FOR THE NON WINNERS... BUT I TOLD HER THAT SHE MUST WATCH THE AIRING ON MARCH 14 DESPITE THE LOST BECAUSE I GREETED HER ON TV AND SHE LOVES HEARING HER NAME MENTIONED ON TV...agugulat yun! :)
