Dapitan Mayor Bullet Jalosjos, who serves as finance officer of TAPE Inc., on Wednesday, belied allegations made by former Senator Tito Sotto III that some program modifications that proprietor Romeo “Romy” Jalosjos Sr. wished to implement had been fueled by political agenda.
Sotto alleged throughout an interview with DWIZ final June 3 that Jalosjos was eyeing a substitute of the noontime present’s “Bawal Judgmental” with a brand new section referred to as “Seek for Kasambahay,” which is alleged to be some form of a magnificence pageant for home helpers.
However Jalosjos, who was current throughout the introduction of the brand new “Eat Bulaga” hosts final Monday, labeled Sotto’s remarks as mere “speculations.” In an interview with CNN Philippines’ The Supply on June 7, Jalosjos stated that whereas there are talks to supply a section for kasambahays, he confused that none has been put in place in the meanwhile.
“These are all speculations. We simply launched our present, so wala pang ‘kasambahay’ section. Sa kanya po nanggaling ‘yan,” he stated “Whereas we’ve been speaking about it earlier than, wala pa namang portion para sa mga kasambahay. However merong mga talks na ibalik sa mga kasambahay ‘yung mga kasiyahan, contests, ‘yung pwedeng manalo, as a result of these are the individuals watching at that timeslot. So, is it so flawed to primarily deal with a sure minority group or marginalized sector na pwedeng bigyan ng kasiyahan?” he continued.
(These are all speculations. We simply launched our present, so there’s no kasambahay section. That got here from him. Whereas we’ve been speaking about it earlier than, there’s no portion for home helpers. However there are talks to convey kasambahays into the highlight by means of cheerful parts, contests, or some form of factor the place one would win, as a result of these are the individuals watching at that timeslot. So, is it flawed to primarily deal with a sure minority group or marginalized sector that may convey happiness?)
In the course of the interview, broadcast journalist Pinky Webb then requested Jalosjos if there was any reality to Sotto’s claims that they’d plans to make use of the doable section as a stepping stone to launch a partylist group, to which the TAPE government stated there are none in the meanwhile.
“As of now, wala pa po. Proper now, we’re simply a section na gagawan naming contest. Sa lahat ng mga kasambahay, whether or not nasa Pilipinas man o overseas, mga OFW, pwede silang manalo,” he stated. “All they will do is to ship a video of them singing, and also you by no means know. Baka maka-discover tayo ng bagong talento na nanggaling sa kasambahay.”

To the helpers, whether or not they’re within the Philippines or overseas just like the OFWs, they will win. All they will do is to ship a video of them singing, and also you by no means know. Possibly we will uncover some new expertise coming from them.)
