Willie Revillame quips, "Malaki magbayad ang GMA;" Ogie says rival network gives higher talent fee

"Malaki magbayad ang GMA," says Willie Revillame (right). However, Ogie Alcasid says TV5, a rival network of GMA-7, gives a higher talent fee.

Willie Revillame quips that GMA-7 gives higher salaries compared to his former home network ABS-CBN.

The Wowowin host joked around with ABS-CBN hosts during the birthday party of Bobot Mortiz, the director of It's Showtime.

In a video uploaded by Allan Diones, Willie is heard teasing Vhong Navarro and other hosts of the ABS-CBN noontime show.

Willie said with a laugh, "Showtime? Huy, timeslot ko yun ha! Kinuha niyo!"

Bobot was described by Willie as his "mentor." Willie recalled, "Nagsisimula pa lang ako sa ABS-CBN, ito na nagti-tip sa akin."

Ogie teased Willie by saying, "May budget ka ba? Mini-Cooper lang, masaya na yun."

Willie asked the other celebrities to come near him as he asked, "ABS-CBN ka pa ba?"

"Malaki magbayad ang GMA," Willie told Tirso Cruz III who asked back: "Malaki ba?"

Willie turned to Ogie Alcasid and asked him if it's true that the Kapuso Network gives a high talent fee.


Ogie answered, "Mas malaki sa..."

Willie ended his sentence by blurting out, "TV5!

"Yumaman kami dun!" exclaimed the former host of TV5's game shows.

Ogie quipped, "Ikaw lang ang yumaman dun. Ang problema, pagdating ko dun, inubos na niya [ang budget]."

Willie defended himself by saying, "Hindi totoo yun."

He became the host of the GMA-7 game show Wowowin in 2015.

In 2016, Ogie left TV5 and joined ABS-CBN via It's Showtime's “Tawag ng Tanghalan” segment.
