Wowowin host Willie Revillame lectured a 17-year-old contestant over the phone after she cursed him on live TV.
The incident happened on October 13, 2020, during the “Tutok to Win” segment, where Willie chooses and calls a lucky contestant who will receive a cash prize.
That day, Willie phoned a contestant named Glaiza.
When she answered, Willie joked and said, "Oh, sige, bye bye!"
As response, the woman on the other line blurted the expletive “P*t*ng*n* mo*!”
Caught by surprise, Willie said, "Huy!"
Then the Wowowin host introduced himself to her, “Walang hiya ka, minura mo ako, si Kuya Willie mo ito!”
Glaiza was in disbelief, and all she could say was, “Hala? Totoo?”
Willie reacted, “Anong totoo? Totoo! Si Kuya Willie mo ito!”
Adding, “Bakit ka nagmumura? Bawal nagmumura.”
Explaining herself, Glaiza said, “Akala ko kasi iba po.”
The contestant apologized.
Willie did not let it go, remarking, “Nanunuod ang buong mundo sa atin, ‘tapos nagmumura ka. Bawal magmura.”
He then asked Glaiza to apologize to viewers.
Willie told her, “Ikaw ba si Glaiza? Mag-sorry ka sa buong Pilipinas. Mahirap iyan, magagalit sa atin ang tao.”
A contrite Glaiza answered, “Sorry po sa nasabi ko.”
After accepting her apology, Willie reiterated the importance of not cursing.
He said to Glaiza, “O, huwag ka magmumura kahit sino kausap mo, ha. O, mag-sorry ka uli.”
Glaiza complied, “Humihingi po ako ng pasensiya sa nasabi ko.”
The comedian interjected, “Ano ba iyong sinabi mo?”
Before she could respond, Willie shouted, “Huwag mong sasabihin! Hahaha!”
The Wowowin host addressed his viewers again, “Ako, ang payo ko lang sa mga natatawagan, kahit na may scam, e, huwag kayong nagmumura kasi, kung totoo, paano iyan?"
To Glaiza, he added, “Katulad niyan, totoo iyan, kasi nagtext ka, ‘Sana ako ang matawagan mo para pambili ko po ng laptop sa online class ko po.’
“Tignan mo nga, tinawagan mo na, minura mo pa ako.
“Makinig kang mabuti sa akin.”
Again, Glaiza apologized to Willie and to Wowowin viewers.
Willie said to her, “O, huwag na magmumura, ha. Hindi maganda iyong nagmumura. Okay, sige, humingi ka naman ng tawad, okay lang.”
Discovering that the contestant was only 17 years old, Willie said, “Kita mo, minor ka pa, nagmumura ka na. Sige na, okay na iyan.”
Since contestants of the "Tutok to Win" segment join via phone call, Willie reminded his viewers, “Ito ang payo ko sa lahat ng tatawagan ko. Huwag kayo magmumura, ha.”
Glaiza continued to apologize to Willie, and he decided to replay the whole call, “Tatawagan kita ulit, sumagot ka nang maayos.”
Willie put down the phone, and then laughed and talked to the audience while redialing Glaiza’s number.
Willie also defended Glaiza’s reaction to the call.
He said, “Pasensiya na kayo, siyempre, hindi niya alam, e.
“Marami ho kasing nanloloko. Tignan niyo iyong Facebook, puro mukha ko. Huwag kayong maniniwala..."
Willie succeeding in calling Glaiza again, who replied this time with, “Hello po, Kuya Wil?”
Willie answered, “Ay, Glaiza, ikaw ba iyan? Glaiza, siguro hindi ka nagmumura, mabait kang bata ano?”
Glaiza said, “Hindi na po.”
He asked Glaiza to sing the jingle of Wowowin’s sponsor before announcing that she won PHP20,000.
Glaiza was heard screaming and shouting on the other line because of the prize.
WILLIE CALLED G*G* BY ANOTHER CONTESTANT
This is not the first time that Willie was cursed by a contestant over the phone.
On May 18, 2020, Willie called a female contestant but failed to introduce himself.
After the contestant answered the phone, she was instructed by Willie to say the famous line of the sponsor, an online shopping app.
The response was: “g*g*!”
Surprised by the woman’s answer, Willie nearly fell off his chair and introduced himself.
The woman quickly apologized, "Akala ko po talaga pinagti-tripan niyo ako. Sorry po!"
