Teddy Corpuz surprised everyone when he proposed to and married his wife Jasmine on the October 17 episode of It's Showtime.
The wedding ceremony was part of his team's performance for the “Magpasikat Week” of ABS-CBN's noontime variety show.
Teddy's teammates were Vice Ganda and Jugs Jugueta.
After Jugs and Vice performed a song and a reverse poem about love, Teddy surprised Jasmine, their kids, and the madlang people when he proposed live on the show.
Teddy told his beloved: "Lagi mong sinasabi sa akin na never akong nag-propose sa'yo, kaya ngayon, sa harap mo at sa harap ng buong mundo..."
The vocalist of Rocksteddy then knelt down and took out a box that he had hidden in his pocket.
Teddy asked: "Gusto kitang tanungin: "Babe, will you marry me again?"
Jasmine wiped away tears from her eyes and nodded in agreement.
Teddy stood and they shared a sweet kiss.
"Buti na lang nag-yes ka," quipped the TV host. "Wala kaming ipapalit kung nag 'no' ka."
She fumbled with the other rings on her left hand and Teddy told her, "Tanggalin mo na 'yan, ang liit-liit ng bato," eliciting laughter from the audience.
Teddy continued, "Eleven years ago, alam ko deep down inside na lagi kang nanonood ng wedding videos, lagi kang nanonood ng mga palabas tungkol sa mga weddings, tumitingin ka ng mga damit tungkol sa weddings at hindi ko naibigay sa iyo yun.
"Nung panahon na yun, isang simpleng rakista lang naman ako.
"Pero ngayon, kasama nang mga pinakamahahalagang tao sa buhay natin...yung pastor natin sa church.
"Gusto kong ibigay sa iyo ang pinakamalaking kasal na gusto mo dahil gusto ko lahat ng ito gagawin ko para sa iyo.
"Mula January pa lang, inipon ko ang pambili ng singsing na iyan. Nagbenta ako ng gitara, sumali ako sa paluwagan, totoo po yun.
"Tinago ko sa'yo pero lahat ng ito, gusto ko malaman mo na gagawin ko ang lahat para mapasaya ka lang.
"Kaya gusto ko dito mismo sa Showtime, ikasal tayo nang totoo."
The surprise proposal and wedding earned a standing ovation from the hurados who were moved to tears.
The judges today included Maricel Soriano, Marc Logan, Ina Raymundo, Janno Gibs, and director Rory Quintos, who described it as “thematically brilliant.”
It's Showtime's “Magpasikat Week” is the annual talent competition of the hosts. It kicked off yesterday, October 16, with a magical performance by Billy Crawford, James Reid, and Amy Perez.
