Eat Bulaga host Buboy Villar went viral on social media after being spotted eating at the Carinderia owned by the ‘G sa Gedli’ winner last July 22.
In the photo posted by ‘My Sparkle Notebook,’ Buboy enjoyed a meal from Aling Agnes’s store while Isko Moreno interviewed the winner.
While many netizens laughed at Buboy’s actions, some fans of the original Eat Bulaga Dabarkads couldn’t stop noticing the similarity between the host’s gestures to Jose Manalo.
It can be recalled that Jose Manalo, who’s one of the most popular hosts of Eat Bulaga’s former segment ‘Juan for All, All for Juan,’ was known for not wasting the opportunity to taste the food of their winners when there was a chance.
“Galawang Jose Manalo yarn,” netizen Allen said.
“Hirap gayahin ni jose no buboy peace,” netizen Alex remarked.
“Hanggang dyan ba nman sa segment nio na yan wala parin originality , buboy hindi mo kayang pantayan si jose , obvious naman na ginagaya mo sya,” netizen Millet commented.
The current Eat Bulaga has been accused of copying the ideas and even the style of the original Dabarkads. Still, legally, TAPE Inc., the production company behind the said noontime show, owned the rights to the segments and title of the program.
