Jackpot! TV5 reportedly released P300-M worth of talent fees to TVJ, E.A.T hosts

Tito Sotto, Vic Sotto, Joey de Leon, and other E.A.T hosts possibly got a big fat paycheck when they transferred to TV5.

In her online show ‘Showbiz Now Na,’ Fermin received information from his source about the money shelled out by TV5’s chairman Manny V. Pangilinan as the first payment to the former Eat Bulaga hosts.

According to her, Pangilinan, who’s known for being generous to the talents of TV5, spent around P300-M for the initial salary of TVJ and other E.A.T hosts as part of their fee.

“Hindi ko po babanggitin kung sino ang aking source, lalong hindi ko babanggitin ang presyo pero daang milyon ang pag-uusapan natin,” said Cristy.

“Nang pumasok po ang Tito, Vic and Joey, at ang Dabarkads sa TV5 naglabas po ng ilang daang milyon si Sir MVP bilang paunang… ang tawag kasi diyan kapag bibili ka ng bahay, earnest money… Ipagpalagay na naglabas si Sir MVP ng P300 milyon, kayang-kaya.

“‘Yun po ang kumakalat na isyu ngayon, 300 million pesos daw po ang unang inilabas ni Sir MVP bilang pang-unang talent fees ng grupo,” she also said.

The veteran columnist said that the rumors were not impossible, especially since Pangilinan was even rumored to have spent P2-B pesos for a single celebrity, Sharon Cuneta when the megastar transferred to TV5.

So it’s also possible that Pangilinan invested millions of pesos in TVJ, especially since the ‘Dabarkads’ have already proven themselves as a rating magnet.
