"Of course I'm real..Willie never cheats hes as honest as your Abe Lincoln..was. Now do you still believe in Santa?"

I Know the feelings everyone need a job, but you don't need to cover him up, its so real and true what we saw on TV and that not cool. Willie is a big LYING B>>>>.

We should call Tito,Vic and Joey on this forum, we should let them review all the 2007 and 2008 Bigaten show and you guys will see what i am talking about, he is a freak, pretending he care to all the neeady people, but totally he's not, he only care for those people who give him DOLLARS, THEY SHOULD INVESTIGATE HIM FOR HIS CORRUPTION IN THE SHOW......

It does not surprise me that even the game shows are now filled with corruption. I have watched segments of the program three times and I can not see much to it. It is very popular though among Filipinos. Like boxing and basketball. It may be good as many of the viewers are entertained and can get their minds off all the troubles for a couple hours each day. Corruption and cheating has been going on for so long now that people accept it. I doubt if it will ever change. I had to be the one who changed.

7HOPE6 you seem so sure Willie would steal from some of the poorest people in the world. "Not a chance" Willie earns one million per day and you really think a few thousand peso would turn him into a scoundrel.

Yes i am 1000% sure, I know what i saw and am the person that hate lying and a big manipulator you should review the 2006 to 2008 portion of BIGATEN
and you will find out what I am talking about, remember they used to put the money right in front of the machine where the 3 finalist answere the question,remeber that portion of handling out that prizes of bigaten Willie had a sneaky way of making BAWAS the prize,thats why they let RR or the other girls now give the prizes.He is a big CORUPTOR>>>>> >I can't change on what you believe, thats also a good source of income for you.

To the 'real' Pokwang heres what your idol Willie promotes. To imagine that theres a whole new generation of KIDS being fed this trash on a daily basis...

1) Its ok to make fun of old people
2) Its ok to make fun of the disabled
3) Its ok to make fun of other ethinicities
4) Its of utmost importance to be fair skinned.
5) Its ok to make fun of dark skinned people/native filipinos
6) Its ok to be provocative in dress and behavior
7) If you speak bad english or are ignorant of the language its acceptable and down to earth but if someone speaks good english (god forbid with an accent) they can be made fun of
8) Its ok to do nothing and rely on luck or fate to better your life
9) Its ok to lose ones self respect in return for monetary gain
10) Crude slapstick humor is acceptable while any sign of intelligence is upper class or elitist.

..im sure there are more!

I think you're a little too full of yourself to think that Wowowee is guilty of all this. Sometimes a TV game show is just a TV game show. Let down your collar and learn to live some. A case of Red Horse just might kill that bug up your arse.

Kids are impressionable they normally imitate it so after seeing Willie joke like some nincompoop, my relatives did not allow her kids to watch it.
Adults watch it if your tired and just want to pass the time.I do not recommend children to watch it.

Some filipino are really hard to please. You are really hook up with Western Culture, never liked your own. Damn you hypocytes!! No matter how you like american or british shows, in the end they will still call you BROWN MONKEY!!Don't be that socail climber. Love your own and appreciate what you have. The more you appreciate there culture the more they think that they are above you and stab you at the back, laugh at you and belittle you. Maging masaya po tayu kung anong meron tayo, imbis na magsiraan, magtulungan po. Kaya di umaangat ang Pilipinas dahil sa mga taong tulad nyo.

Too bad this show is off the air. Was a favorite on TFC Channel.

Sorry to revive the thread, but do people like Vice Ganda? Getting bigger every day.
