The comedian also recently trended on social media after a video of him creating a hilarious mess BTS of "It's Showtime" went viral. In the video, a female staff could be seen holding a long paper up which seemed to contain the script of the other hosts. However, Kim Chiu was then spotted laughing when Vice proceeded to grab and tear the script from the female staff. Eventually, Kim stood up from her seat and hilariously ran after Vice, jokingly reprimanding him for tearing the script.
Vice Ganda also could not help but shed tears after hearing Vhong Navarro and Teddy Corpuz's conversation on "It's Showtime." During the show, Vhong and Teddy were talking about some sudden changes in a relationship. This prompted Vice to react, rushing to Teddy as he told them he does not want that to happen. Eventually, his co-host, Kim Chiu, noticed him turning emotional which prompted him to explain why.
