Vice Ganda was put on the spot when a fan mentioned Terrence Romeo on It's Showtime.
During the June 9 episode of ABS-CBN's noontime show, Vice Ganda admitted that he likes Zanjoe Marudo, who was their featured guest that day.
"Tuwing nakikita kita, nagkakagulo ang puso ko," said the comedian about the My Dear Heart actor.
Vhong Navarro then came up with a skit wherein Zanjoe would conduct "pamamanhikan."
"Dapat makilala mo na ang nanay ni Vice," said Vhong before going to the audience area to select someone to pretend as Vice Ganda's mother.
"Gusto kong ipakilala sa inyo ang kasintahan ni Vice," said Vhong.
Zanjoe approached the woman and took her hand for "mano."
Vhong asked the audience member: "Boto po ba kayo kay Zanjoe?"
The woman answered, "Zanjoe, huwag kang magagalit pero boto ako kay Terrence."
A shocked Vice Ganda was speechless upon hearing the name of the basketball player.
Karylle's eyes widened and she looked at Vice Ganda to see his reaction. Anne Curtis could be heard saying, "Oh my goodness!"
The apologetic Vhong simply thanked the woman and went back onstage.
"Alam mo Vhong, iyong mga naiisip mo, hindi ko talaga alam," said Karylle while Billy Crawford could be seen holding back his laughter.
When Vhong returned onstage, Vice Ganda took his hand and squeezed it so tight that Vhong could be heard saying "Aray!"
At his Pusuan Mo si Vice Ganda sa Araneta concert last February, the comedian was emotional as he mentioned an unnamed basketball player during his spoken word poetry segment.
The comedian gave advice to his younger self by saying that it is okay to fall in love with anyone "huwag lang sa basketball player."
Vice Ganda also said, "Sa bawat laro mo, sa bawat three points mo, gusto ko sana nandun ako para mauna ako sa palakpakan at gusto ko isigaw na ‘P*tangina! Jowa ko 'yan!’ pero hindi natin magawa kasi natatakot tayo parehong na mapag-usapan."
In 2014, Terrence Romeo denied being in a relationship with Vice Ganda.
The ABS-CBN TV host-comedian said back then about his denial: “Ayokong manakit ng isang tao na naging mahalaga sa akin. Ayokong manakit ng kaibigan.”
