During the press conference for the 10th anniversary of It’s Showtime, main hosts Vice Ganda and Anne Curtis were asked about the experience the variety show had during the rise of rival show Eat Bulaga’s AlDub tandem, consisting of Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza as Yaya Dub, to popularity.
Vice described the experience as happy because despite the AlDub fever, many people still remained loyal to It’s Showtime.
“It was a humbling experience,” he said. “It was a learning experience. Maraming naituro sa amin ang pangyayaring iyon, hindi lang sa programa namin kundi sa buong network at sa aming personal. Maraming naituro [ito]. Ako, sa akin, naituro sa akin nun na ang panahon ay hindi mo hawak at ang puso rin ng tao ay hindi mo rin hawak.”
“Ang tanging magagawa mo lamang ay magpasalamat sa pagkakataong minamahal ka nila at mahalin mo rin sila sa pagkakataong minamahal mo sila,” Vice added. “At kung hahabaan pa nila ’yong pagmamahal sa’yo, isang malaking biyaya na ’yun mula sa langit.”
On the other hand, Anne Curtis believed it was an integral part of the journey of It’s Showtime that, for her, humbled them. Through the experience, she believed the entire cast grew stronger as a family.
“We all put so much heart into not giving up on our show,” she said. “I think that’s what reached out to our viewers, that’s what they saw. We’re very thankful, you know, to be at the position now that we’re going to be celebrating 10 years. So, we’re very very very thankful.”
The experience also thought the Just A Stranger actress to always be prepared for whatever will happen.
“Who knows? It may happen again but, at least, we know now that we can get through it together,” she concluded.
