im not a fan of this show either, it is just too much and too dumb! why not a show that really helps people instead of a gameshow that makes fun of the masses.. but everyone loves it here.
Why don't you come up with your own show if you really have some good ideas? Do it. Otherwise, another line delivered lang yan.

I don't like wowowee but if you just want to pass the time go ahead watch it, entertainment.
What I don't like about it is they teach people to rely on luck. People who join those show are people who is wishing I wish I can win money. Seeing it as a way out of poverty, quick money. Money that you work for are sweeter. Luck comes if you work hard..For me I don't see it as luck but rather a fruit of your labor, What you sow is what you harvest.

Eva, like all game shows contestants want to win. Wowowee is no different. Contestants on game shows come from all walks of life and go to have a good time and hope they can win a nice prize in the process. Now Luningning is WOW WOW WEE....naughty thoughts, LOL......

Eva, I am not a regular watcher but you are right, some contestants are willing to shame themselves in hopes Willie will give them something. Willie appears to be a compassionate man and I like that. On the other hand, shows have been cancelled due to the crowds becoming to unruly. Remember the stampede? Oh well, consideration, patience and civility are often lacking here!!

Willie is a sexist, something is not real and it seems for show but i guess he did make people happy. i am sure lots of people will be mad at me coz of this comment. He is still suspended from the show because he made that comment about Cory Aquino burial. I think he said we are having fun here and then you plug those things about cory, not sure if that is exactly the right words but its the gist of it.

Yeah i remember that stampede. people are so desperate to join it.

OK sana ang Wowowee in the sense na nakakatulong din naman ito sa mga nananalong contestants at nakakapag pasaya. Ang di lang maganda ay kapag ginagawang katatawan kung magka minsan ang hitsura o kapansanan ng contestants to the point na naiinsulto na ito at makikita mo sa hilaw na tawa nito. At pag napansin ding naluluha na ang isang contestant...kinakalkal pa lalo ito ng host para ilabas sa telebesyon ang personal na buhay nito.
Puwede namang magpatawa ng hindi kina capitalize ang kapansanan o hitsura ng isang tao. Pwede silang mag karoon ng comedy skit at magpatawa na subject ang sarili nila not at the expense of the contestants. Yan ay kung talagang magaling silang comedyante.

Tama ka dyan. Kahit na cheap laugh lang pwede na yon satin. Ang mga iba kasi dito ang sakit magsalita. Parang mga taga-ibang planeta. Walang understanding sa pinanggalingan nila. Anywho ur right, walang magandang sinasabi mga losers.

Agree ako sayo totally. Alam mo naman ang comedy ng Filipino most of the time done in bad taste talaga. Medyo insensitive kasi ang culture natin pagdating sa iba pero pag tayo naman ginawang subject na medyo pangit ang dating ayun magrarally agad. Anywho minsan naiinis din ako sa mga inane na shows na'to. Ang ayoko ko lang sa mga out-of-pride-and-elitist comments ng iba dito. Yung tipong kala mo nasa upper 1% sila ng society kung magsalita. E ang totoo naman wala namang pumupunta dito na hindi working class.

If may anak ka na 8yrs old at manonood ng wowowee ano kaya ang matutunan nya? Ung mga jokes na tasteless and walang galang sa mga taong may kapansanan or may problema or naghihirap?
Pwedeng magpatawa pero hindi sa expense ng ibang tao or ung gawin katatawan ang buhay at kung ano man nangyari sa buhay. Dapat igalang natin kahit ano pa ang estado ng tao sa buhay. Kaya ba nila gawin yan sa mga taong may pera? Di ba ung mahihirap lang ang ginawa nilang ganyan?
Kung sayawan lang naman or kantahan keri lang.
Pero minsan nakakabastos ung mga comment nung iba sa contestant at nakakaawa kaya hindi ko pinapanood ang wowoweee.

RDT, I am impressed with your knowledge of the Tagalog language. I know very little. Have not made much effort to learn it. Much less than 1% speak it at home. Hearing more and more Spanish, lol..

I picked the three of you because there are several similarities in all of your responses: idiocy, insensitiveness, colonial mentality at worst and professional social-climbing at best. I don't think you belong to the elites of the society so don't talk like you're way above the masses.
You're right. Wether we have burdens, in troubled or problems, we, Filipinos have superficial happiness. Don't they know that God loves poor people than hypocrites.

My tagalog is very, very limited at best. I think you know more tagalog then I. If I post anything with tagalog in it, then I've used some internet language translation website. I hope that explains the terrible grammar.=D

Pokwang,

When Willie cheated it was even posted on youtube, its clear and undeniable. There have been statements from winners they had to share their winnings with Willie.
