Jay Manalo explains last-minute decision to back out from "Kung Ako Ikaw" challenge


Actor Jay Manaloadmitted backing out from Kung Ako Ikaw, not because he would do gay impersonationbut because the guest lineup was changed. Initially, he thought he wouldplay against Joko Diaz and Victor Neri. But he was told at the last minute that the two had beenreplaced by Dino Guevarra and Joseph Bitangcol.



Jay Manalo backed out of the Kung Ako Ikaw challenge for a valid reason.

Unang inilabas sablind item and then later on ay pinangalanan na. Pati ang dalawang host ng naturang GMA-7 comedy-reality show na sina Joey Marquez at Keempee de Leonay nagsalita na rin, na ikinagulat nila ang nangyari sa pag-walkout ni Jay forthe episode he initially agreed to do.

Sa unang bugso ngbalita, late na nga raw dumating si Jay sa scheduled call time. Bigla pa itongnag-walkout nang nalaman niya na ang magiging challenge is to do the job of thegay impersonators sa mga comedy bar. May naisulat pang umayaw rindaw si Jay nang nalaman niyang sina Joseph Bitangcol at Dino Guevarra angmagiging kalaban niya.

All accounts arefalse, depensa ng DMV Entertainment that handles Jay's career, along withAlessandra de Rossi, Jean Garcia, Jennica Garcia, Polo Ravales, Rubirubi,Joseph and the rest of the Boyz.Com.

Una, Jay accepted thechallenge at alam niyang magbabakla nga sila. But the original lineup ofchallengers had a concept—mga barako silang gagawa nito: siya, si Joko Diaz atVictor Neri. Walang problema na gawin ito ni Jay dahil napakaganda ng lineupnila nina Joko at Victor, so he agreed.

Monday last week, May26, ang taping day. Pero 11:55 ng tanghali noon ay saka lang daw sinabihan siya namay change of lineup na pala—Jay, Joseph, and Dino. Hindi ito anglineup na tinanggap ni Jay para sa challenge.

Jay woke up at 1 p.m.that day at malapit lang sa tinitirhan niya ang location, so walang problema sa call time. Nang nalaman niya na may change of lineup, nagpunta nasiya sa Zirkoh, the venue of the challenge, to inform the production that hecan't go on with the show.

Hindi niya tinanggihansina Dino at Joseph because they're Dino and Joseph lang. In fact, magkasamanga sina Joseph at Jay sa DMV. Tinanggihan ni Jay ang challenge dahil naiba naang concept and he really feels hindi niya nga naman ka-level sina Dino atJoseph for that particular challenge.
