Michael Pacquiao, son of Filipino boxing legend Manny Pacquiao, almost had it perfect in the contest “Bawal Judgmental” of the popular noontime show Eat Bulaga Wednesday.
The young Pacquiao earned a total of P45,000 after he went 3-for-4 in the first round, and then went 3-for-3 in the final round when he made the right choice on the question.
Introduced as a rapper and artist, Pacquiao was teased early by TV host comedian Vic Sotto, as well as co-host Jose Manalo and Paolo Ballesteros as the latter spoke in English.
Sotto asked him, “Nagtatagalog ka ba?”
“Opo,” was the quick reply of Pacquiao, whose video went viral recently as he showcased his singing and rapping talent although he aspires to be a professional basketball player.
Pacquiao got it right on his first two of four choices from the seven guests on the question: “Sinu-sino sa kanila ang nanay ng artista?”
When he missed it on his third choice, Sotto said: “Medyo tinamaan ng isa si Pacquaio ha.”
He got it right, however, on his fourth and final choice in the first round.
In the second round, Pacquiao was asked to select one of the four questions, with one correct answer.
The first was “Sila ba ay sumali ng beauty pageant?” second was “Sila ba ay naging on-cam talent?” third was “Sila ba ay may-anak na nag-aaral, and fourth was “Sila ba ay nag-trabaho abroad?
Pacquiao initially picked the fourth question, and then changed it to the first question. However, after much thought, he finally settled to the second question of being on-cam talent.
All three guests were former on-cam talents, which gave Pacquiao a perfect 3-0 in the second round.
Sports figures, and even sports related personalities have appeared in the past in the noontime show’s popular contest of “Bawal Judgmental” and these include PBA players James Yap and Arwind Santos.
