Waily Revillame, amirite?

So, it seems Wowowee host and opiate of the people Willie Revillame threw a tantrum again.

I am Jesus...Christ!

Revillame was offended that Jobert Sucaldito, a commentator at ABS-CBN’s radio station DZMM, asked why the show chose to get students who got an average grade of 75-79% in school instead of, say, kids with better grades. To Revillame, this was tantamount to calling his contestants stupid, and he’s having none of it. He has threatened to leave the noontime variety show unless ABS-CBN fires Sucaldito. “I’m doing this for the masses. For the special children who have grades of 75%,” he said.

Sucaldito’s radio co-host Wendell Ramos has denied that anyone suggested the contestants were stupid. The point, apparently, was that it would have been better to get students with high grades to inspire children to study harder. With the employment market as it is, I guess getting on a game show is as good a career goal as any.

Not to put too fine a point on things, but getting an average of 75-79% sort of does mean that a student is not among the best and brightest. (Disclosure: I am not among the best and brightest.) That doesn’t mean they don’t deserve to be on Wowowee, of course, just that there are people smarter than they are.  Pointing that out doesn’t make one an asshole, or oppressive, or discriminatory.

But Willie wants to make it about that. He says he is standing up for his fans: the trash collectors, the poor, the people who don’t get good grades. Which would be great if they had anything to do with the whole thing. If  anyone, Willie was the one doing these average students a disservice by calling them special children and threatening to leave the show on their behalf. Defensive much?

In reaction, Sucaldito gave the only intelligent response in situations like this: Kaloka siya. Pikon sobra. (roughly: Shut up, you pansy.)

  1. Willie Revillame is the epitome of everything that is wrong with this country, I think if his show was taken of the air, the world would be a better place.

  2. @ChakaDemus: On the other hand, it could be the only thing keeping this country from sinking into total chaos. Probably not, though.

    @Nick: Exactly. It’s not like nobody else can do his job. It seems simple enough. Sing novelty songs, ogle women, beat up your wife, etc.

  3. sabi nga nila way back in 2005, wala nang pwedeng pumalit kay gma. hintayin na lang daw matapos ang termino, wala naman daw ibang qualified.

  4. I guess I was referring to the how people in our society believe that someone who is talentless, incompetent, and morally repulsive as Revillame (or GMA) is impossible to replace.

  5. @jake: That does make sense. I guess Willie’s term is ending. Sabi nga ni Jay-Z: there’s only so long fake thugs can pretend.

  6. Gusto ko si Robin di plastic. Meron sinayg mga social projects na sinusuportahan gaya ng eskwela eh si Willie puro bigay kuno ng pera pero pera ng ABS-CBN. Kung pera niya nungka mamigay iyan. Plastic at masyadong salbahe. Marami na sinayg kasalanan pero laging pinatatawad eh umabot na sa sukdulan. Di mo dapat diktahan ang kompanyang nagpapasweldo sa iyo dahil kung wala iyon hindi siya (Willie) kakain at dadamputin siya sa basurahan. Lagi ni Willie ikinukuwento nuong nawalan siya ng trabaho dahil na suspended siya. Ultima pagkain sa tanghalian eh hinihingi pa niya sa kapwa artista niya. Dapat iyong incident na iyon eh magsilbing guide niya para di niya balikan ang ganuong situation pero lumaki masyado ang ulo niya. Akala mo hari na siya ang masusunod. DAPAT TALAGA TANGGALIN SIYA. EH DI NAKITA NIYA NO ONE IS INDISPENSABLE. MERONG PWEDENG PAMALIT SA KANYA, SI ROBIN, GUWAPO NG 10 BESES SA KANYA AT MAGANDA AT SINCERO ANG PAKIKISAMA. KASI SIYA NATALISOD DIN NUONG NABILANGGO SIYA KASO NAGBAGO SIYA NADALA EH SI WILLIE WALANG KADALA DALA. LALO PANG NAGING PALALO. O NGAYON NAGSISI SIYA SA GINAWA NIYA PERO HULI NA ANG LAHAT. SUMOBRA NA SIYA. MARAMI NG PAGPAPATAWAD NA IBINIGAY ANG MGA TAO DAPAT NA SIYANG KALUSIN.
