Fans of Eat Bulaga expressed concern over the rumored internal issue among officials of the longest-running noontime show in the Philippines.
After 44 years, Eat Bulaga was reportedly facing its most significant controversy because of a rumored power struggle between Television and Production Exponents (TAPE) Romeo Jalosjos and the founding producer of the noontime show Tony Tuviera.
Jalosjos, who’s now the big boss of Eat Bulaga, allegedly wanted Tuviera to be removed from the show despite the support being received by the producer from EB Dabarkads, including Tito Sotto, Vic Sotto, and Joey de Leon.
Several showbiz reporters have already revealed that the iconic trio TVJ who has been Eat Bulaga’s face for 44 years, possibly leave the show due to the power struggle.
A report from Politiko.com also revealed that Jalosjos talked to Jose Manalo, Wally Bayola, and Allan K to become the possible replacement for TVJ if the trio decided to quit the show.
Meanwhile, Jalosjos was allegedly not interested in letting Paolo Ballesteros and Ryan Agoncillo stay in Eat Bulaga.
However, fans of Eat Bulaga doubt that Jose, Wally, and Allan would accept the rumored offer from Jalosjos because of their close bonds with Tito, Vic, and Joey.
It can be recalled that Sotto already expressed support to Tuviera, saying that they’re not going to split.
It was also rumored that TVJ was planning to build their own show ‘Dabarkads’ to rival the new Eat Bulaga.
GMA and Jalosjos’ company still have a block time contract with GMA Network that was set to expire in 2026.
