Vice Ganda reminisced about joining an amateur contest in Eat Bulaga while he was still starting out in showbiz.
During the July 12 episode of It's Showtime, the ABS-CBN host asked a Tawag ng Tanghalan contestant:
"Kilala mo ba si Ingrid Montecarlo?"
Vice Ganda then revealed:
"Si Ingrid Montecarlo ang Regine Velasquez ng Sta. Cruz, Maynila.
Vice Ganda informed his co-host Anne Curtis:
"Yun ang pangalan ko nang manalo ako sa Eat Bulaga dati, sa O Diva."
Anne asked him why he chose the name Ingrid and the comedian explained, "Kasi may clan-clan kaming mga bakla. Montecarlo clan ako dati.
"Sumali ako sa Eat Bulaga dati, O Diva yung contest. Kantahan, singing contest."
