“It’s Showtime” studio erupted in chorus of laughter when Ervin “Dumbo” Plaza, one of the show’s staff joined Vice Ganda’s team during the program’s “Cash-Ya” challenge.
In the video that KAMI obtained from ABS-CBN’s Entertainment official YouTube channel on Dec. 1, Dumbo joined Team Vice (boys’ team) as they tried to do the challenge where the members will be lying into each other’s lap for a minute without any support back support.
During the fun-filled challenge, the 41-year-old Unkabogable star warned Dumbo to let him enjoy the moment when he laid on the lap of Hashtag member Zeus Collins. Due to Dumbo’s size, Ganda seemed worried that he the show’s staff will crush him to death.
“Dumbo, pakiusap lang ha… Hayaan mo muna akong ma-enjoy ang pagkakahiga ko bago mo ako patayin,” Ganda jokingly said. “Ieenjoy ko muna ang buhay ko bago mo ako patayin.”
The hosts and the studio audience both enjoyed the challenge due to Ganda’s funny side comments and comical antics. Ganda even challenged his co-hosts to try being laid with a refrigerator (referring to Dumbo’s size), making the audience to burst into laughter.
Unfortunately, Team Vice failed to win the challenge after co-host Jugs Jugueta fell off the circle. Jugueta, however, reasoned out that fellow host Anne Curtis tickled him that’s why he fell.
Meanwhile, Team Nadine (girls’ team) reportedly won the challenge. “It’s Showtime” airs on ABS-CBN from Mondays to Saturdays.
KAMI applauds the sportsmanship and camaraderie among “It’s Showtime” stars and the staff.
