A funny incident happened at the live show of Wowowin earlier today, May 18, 2020.
During the "Tutok to Win" segment, sponsored by an online shopping app, Wowowin host Willie Revillame made a phone call to one of the winners of the contest.
A woman answered the call.
Without introducing himself or mentioning the show and the promo, Willie immediately instructed the woman to thank the online shopping app.
There came a few seconds of dead air before the woman on the other line said, "G*go!"
Surprised by the woman's answer, Willie nealry fell off his chair.
The woman called Willie "g*go" again.
Finally, Willie introduced himself, "Uy, huwag niyo ako murahin. Si Willie Revillame ito."
The woman seemed to panic to learn that the person she was talking to was Willie.
She repeatedly said sorry to the TV host, "Sorry po talaga, Kuya Wil!"
The woman quickly explained her reaction: "Akala ko po talaga pinagti-tripan niyo ako. Sorry po!"
After laughing hard, Willie faced the camera, and said to the woman, "Alam mo kung ano sinabi mo? Nadinig ko. Sasabihin ko ulit, isisigaw ko sa mundo, sabi mo, 'Guwapo!'
"Dahil diyan sa sinabi mong guwapo ako, sampung libo!"
The woman screamed, Willie remarked, "First time kong nasigawan ng guwapo."
Willie now asked, "Bakit mo naman ako sinigawan ng guwapo?"
The woman answered, "Akala ko po kasi talaga pinagtitripan ako, e. Kasi sabi niyo po kasi, araw-araw, hapon-hapon po, na huwag maniniwala agad."
Joking, Willie shouted, "Huwag maniniwala, ako na nga ito, e!"
The TV host added, "O, kita niyo, naniniwala na kayo, hindi pa niya ako nakikita, nagaguwapuhan na siya sa akin."
The woman, who identified herself as Alexis, told Willie, "Ang guwapo niyo po talaga!"
Willie must've been so entertained by what happened, he added P5000 more to her original prize, which was P10000.
Alexis screamed again and thanked Willie, "Oh my god! Thank you po! Maraming salamat po, Kuya Wil!"
Before ending the segment, Willie announced: "Ito ho, e, babala. Hindi kapag minura niyo ako ay dadagdagan ko kayo! Naguwapuhan lang po siya sa akin.
"Sabi ba naman sa akin..."
Laughing, Willie garbled his words to avoid saying the expletive on national TV.
He continued, "Hindi kami manloloko. Dito niyo makukuha ang papremyo sa show na ito."
Alexis said again, "Akala ko po kasi manloloko, e! Sorry po talaga!"
Wowowin's variety-program-with-audience format has temporarily stopped because of the COVID-19 outbreak.
Instead, the well-known host continues to do live shows from Wil Tower, where he connects to the audience online.
Wil Tower, just across ABS-CBN, is a Manny Villar-owned building where Willie is invested. He owns the land and owns the condominiums at the top floors.
The show continues to give prizes to its viewers via the online contest "Tutok To Win."
Wowowin is celebrating its fifth year on air this May 2020.
