Kim Atienza, pinasalamatan ng netizens dahil sa pagtanggi sa pagho-host ng Eat Bulaga: “

Kuya Kim Atienza received praise from netizens after he refused to become one of the new hosts of Eat Bulaga.

It can be recalled that Atienza has been named as one of the possible hosts for the rebranded version of the said noontime show, together with Paolo Contis and Buboy Villar.

However, in the first episode of Eat Bulaga’s new version, Kuya Kim has nowhere to be found, fueling speculations that the host refused the offer.

Atienza’s manager, Noel Ferrer made the announcement denying the report from entertainment writer Jun Lalin.

According to the manager, it’s impossible for his talent to accept the offer from Eat Bulaga as he has an existing contract and program.

“We’d like to clarify that HE CANNOT DO THE EAT BULAGA REPLACEMENT SHOW as it conflicts with his prior commitment with the daily program “TIKTOCLOCK” (which is also performing very well in the ratings) produced by GMA Network where Kim is contracted as an exclusive talent.” Ferrer said.

Netizens praised Atienza for refusing the said offer, saying that he showed ‘delicadeza’ for not joining the rival show of his former program It’s Showtime, and also giving respect to the TVJ for refusing the accepting the contract from TAPE Inc.

“Masisira si Kuya Kim, please don’t allow it.” a fan said.

“I thought so… Very good ka Kuya Kim! Di gaya niyang mga nag-accept na maging bagong hosts. Traydor na, mga TH pa,” netizen Paw commented.

“Respeto n lng dba sa mga dating host yung iba kpal ng mukha eh dahil sa pera kaya tinanggap,” another netizen remarked.
