Vice Ganda recalled an expensive gift he gave to a former boyfriend upon hearing the "rags to riches" story of a Tawag ng Tanghalan contestant.
In the February 5 episode of It's Showtime, Vice Ganda narrated that he and his family used to sell rags in order to earn money.
"Malaking bahagi ng buhay ko ang rags. Yung nanay ko, mananahi ng mga retaso. Nagbebenta kami ng bilog na basahan sa mga jeepney driver.
"Dun kami binuhay ng nanay ko. Ako nagsasalansan ng mga bilog tapos siya naman ang nananahi.
"Alam mo ba ang paghihirap na pinagdaanan ko?" Vice Ganda cried out.
In this segment, Tawag ng Tanghalan contestant VR Caballero admitted that he believed in good luck partnered with prayers. In return, he gave help to other people.
Vice Ganda then pointed out that he also helped other people, particularly his former boyfriends.
"Tumutulong rin naman tayo. Sa dami ng tinulungan ko, yung mga jowa ko, mas mayaman pa sa akin ngayon!"
Vhong Navarro, his co-host, tried to calm him down by saying, "Kalma na! Kalimutan mo na yun."
Vice Ganda continued his rant by saying, "Nasasaktan kasi ako pag naririnig ko ang salitang tulong.
"Ang dami kong natulungan pero anong nangyari?"
VR, the contender from Metro Manila, told Vice Ganda, "At least, hindi ka nila makakalimutan."
However, the comedian exclaimed:
"Nakalimutan nga ako dahil lumipat dun sa mas malaking ang tulong!"
Vhong teased Vice Ganda by asking: "Nabalik ba ang susi?"
Vice Ganda replied, "Hindi na binalik kasi binenta ng hayop!"
The contestant asked if Vice Ganda gave a motorcycle to his ex-boyfriend but the ABS-CBN TV host clarified that the gift was not a motorcycle.
