EAT BULAGA is celebrating their 38th anniversary. Ito ang rason kung bakit ganado at talagang kinakarir ng mga paborito nating veteran and newbie dabarkads ang kanilang mga presentations at lahat sila ay disiplinado to give everyone the best show. Ilang linggo na rin inaabangan ng mga fans ang performances nila at ngayon ay nasa grand finals stage na.
Ang tambalan nina Ryan Agoncillo at Maine Mendoza ang isa sa apat na grupo na nakapasok sa final round. Puspusan ang naging rehearsals ng dalawa para sa show kahapon, July 29. Kaso, sa hindi inaasahang pangyayari ay um-absent si Ryan dahil bigla itong nagkasakit.
Imbes na mag-backout ng tuluyan dahil tila naputulan ng paa sa biglaang pagka-baldado ng kanilang grupo, naging professional si Maine at itinuloy ang show. Ika nga, the show must go on!
Dahil nalampasin ni Maine ang nasabing pagsubok, hindi na nito napigilan pang magsulat ng two-part Instagram posts relating to what happened yesterday:
Ok, let me just begin by saying that I am the kind of person who is very pessimistic and nonchalant when it comes to things– like competitions! I never really bothered exerting much effort, for I am used to giving and doing just “enough”. Yung saktuhan lang.
For everyone’s information, today is Eat Bulaga’s 38th anniversary celebration, as well as #DabarkadsGoals grand finals. And yes, our team #TeamRamen was fortunate to be one of the finalists! So ito na.. this morning, I was shedding tears like a kid out of frustration. When Kuya Ryan texted that he couldn’t get out of bed because of his back, I was daunted by the possibility that I might do this whole thing on my own. I was up for it; I was more than willing to do it for our team. At the same time, I was scared that I might not be able to do well without Kuya Ry. We didn’t have much time to rehearse, for we were given only an hour today to go over everything on the set.
During rehearsals at around 7am, we were not able to perform ANYTHING correctly. Fail lahat; from the dance steps, cueing, blocking, to the execution of stunts. It seemed everyone was so lost. And even I, started feeling apprehensive too. That was our last rehearsals before the actual performance but we still failed to execute everything properly.
My pessimist side got the best of me, and the only words that came off my mouth at that moment were “Hindi ko to magagawa”. I couldn’t stop my tears from falling, stressed ako sobra! I feel like I am not equipped to do the stunts. @pat_05 told me that it was fine to make changes if I cannot do it (for safety purposes na din), but then optimism kicked in so I told her “Hindi, kaya ko.” I was feeling anxious the whole morning, that I even locked myself inside the restroom to pull myself together. I was praying for the safety of everyone and for a successful performance. I looked in the mirror and told myself I can do it. I had to remove all the negativity inside my system. It was already our turn to perform….
I went out the stage wearing my warrior mask– that cannot be seen by anyone but me– then I repeatedly said this inside my head “This is it, Meng! Kaya mo yan!” Thank God, we had a successful performance. Yung tuwa ko sa bawat salo sa akin! Thank heavens no one got hurt and everything went smoothly.
I am just soooo happy because I can proudly say that I put my heart into this, as in buong puso, sa unang pagkakataon yata? Our team did our very best not to win, but to give everyone a great show. Malaking bagay sa akin ito because I rarely put my whole self in the things I do. Like I have said, laging “sakto lang” but this #DabarkadsGoals competition is an exception. Di ko inexpect!
This is one of the few moments I feel proud and satisfied for doing something “great”. Thank you for this memorable experience, dabarkads! I wish Kuya Ry was with us today, but nonetheless, nasa puso ka namin kanina Kuya Ry! We did it, we won! Thank you very much and congratulations to us, Team Ramen! Happy anniversary, Eat Bulaga! ALARMAAAA! ?
Nang mapanood namin ang performance ni Maine kahapon, ramdam na ramdam namin ang thirst and determination to win. Her hardwork paid off!
Narito naman ang touching message ni Ryan for Maine:
to our lovely little spitfire @mainedcm, im so sorry i couldn’t be with you in the final battle. i know how much this means to you. what i would give to walk into this war with you and win it all. but i also know that you’re a true BAMF and you don’t need anyone’s help to slay. please take care out there sweetheart. remember what we spoke about last night, if you’re doing it for the win, there’s no need, it’s already in the bag. if it’s to make a mark, that’s done and over with right from our first performance. but if you want to do it for yourself, you will be guided accordingly. go and show them all who’s the real QUEEN OF THE JUNGLE! Go Team Ramen!!’?? p.s. ano man ang mangyari ipagluluto daw tayo lahat ni ULA? #dabarkadsgoals #teamramen #tunaynamandirigma

p.s. ano man ang mangyari ipagluluto daw tayo lahat ni ULA?
Kahit ang misis ni Ryan na si Judy Ann Santos a.k.a. Juday ay hindi napigilang i-express ang kanyang paghanga sa Phenomenal Star:
You did a very good job !! ???? your professionalism and dedication is what this industry needs.. mabuhay ka maine! ???? im looking forward to cook for you soon.. ??
Coming from Judy Ann Santos na isa sa superstars ng Pilipinas, you can say na her observations matter and speaks the truth. Ula is proud!
Nakakatuwa ang pagkapanalo ng Team RaMen!
Speaking of Juday and Ryan, bakit hindi kaya gumawa ng movie ang mag-asawa with Alden and Maine? Tutal, OctoArts Films naman ang laging nakakasama nina Bossing sa pag-produce ng movies at balitang may plano ito na maging aktibo ulit sa movie scene. Kailangan niyo ba ng concept? Ako na magvo-volunteer gumawa ng script! Push na!
