Paolo Contis became the most popular new host of Eat Bulaga due to the statements being made during the airing of the longest-running noontime show.
The controversial actor was not afraid to give his opinion in public, even on the trademark battle between Television and Production Exponents (TAPE) Inc. and Eat Bulaga.
The actor also went viral last month following the decision of the Intellectual Property Office of the Philippines (IPOPHL) which removed the trademark ownership of TAPE Inc. over Eat Bulaga.
“Magandang tanghali! Nakaputi ako ngayon, iba ang outfit-an ko ngayon pero simple lang ang gusto kong sabihin para sa ating mga Kapuso. Mga Kapuso, mahaba pa po ang laban. Ibig sabihin, legally, wala pang final. Okay?,” said Paolo.
“Pero ito lang po ang pangako namin, ano man ang mangyari, ang nasimulan po namin na tulong at saya ay itutuloy lang po namin araw-araw. Dahil ‘yun naman po ang dahilan kung bakit kami pumapasok araw-araw. Kayo po ang dahilan kaya nandito kami,” he added.
After TVJ gained another major victory on January 5, netizens couldn’t stop themselves from swarming Paolo’s social media page.
Netizens were waiting for Paolo would make another public statement on the Saturday episode of their show.
