Ion Perez unwittingly generated howls and guffaws from It’s Showtime’s viewers earlier today, August 17.
A part of the "Mas Testing" segment had Vice Ganda asking co-host and game player Vhong Navarro to answer a question by choosing between Ion Perez and Ryan Bang.
The question was: “Sino ang mas dark ang underwear?”
Vhong chose Ryan, and to see if his answer was correct, Ryan and Ion had to give the viewers a peep at their underwear.
Ryan went first and showed a part of his old rose-colored briefs.
Vice to Ion: “Kailangan mo ipakita underwear mo kasi old rose si Ryan.”
A smiling Ion shyly asked Vice: “Sigurado?”
Vice asked back: “Bakit?”
Vhong shouted: “Bacon ba?”
“Bacon” is the term for overused underwear with a garter that has loosened and appears like a bacon strip.
Ion laughed and told Vice: “Punit!”
Ion then showed a bit of his black underwear with a tear that was huge.
Vice: “Bakit gano’n ang brief mo?”
Ion: “E, hindi ko naman alam na ganito, sana nagpalit ako!”
Vice: “Bakit ka nagsusuot ng sirang brief?”
Ion: “E, di ba, minsan may kanya-kanya tayong paborito? E, paborito ko ito. E, hindi ko naman alam na may ganito.”
Vice turned to Vhong and said Vhong lost the round because Ion's underwear had the darker shade.
Vhong defended his choice: “Pero butas, kita iyong balat, e! Nilulusot ko lang.”
