- Vice Ganda opened up to the other judges about why he was called a horse
- The comedian said it started when he was new in the industry
- Instead of getting mad, he used it to launch his career
During a break from the auditions for Pilipinas Got Talent, Vice Ganda explained how the ongoing joke about him being a horse look-a-like started.
The judges were discussing a contestant who imitated different animals.
Vice said he might be blamed for the emergence of animal-like contestants.
"Nung narealize nila, 'Ay pwede pala maging artista sa ABS-CBN ang kabayo. Halika nga.' So merong sumali rito lahat ng hayop ginaya niya!" joked Vice.
Angel Locsin asked her fellow judge why he was called a horse.
Vice explained that it was because of how he looked when he was just starting out in ABS-CBN.
"Kasi nung nagsimula talaga ako dito sa ABS, ang payat-payat ko. Tapos mahaba ang buhok ko, humpak na humpak. Mukha ako talagang kabayo. Tapos yung sayaw ko, pang-kabayo, ang haba-haba ng biyas ko," said Vice.
But instead of losing confidence, the comedian turned it in his favor.
"Kabayo talaga e, tukso sa'kin talaga kabayo. E kesa mapikon ako di ba, ginawa ko na lang kabuhayan. Naging launching movie pa tuloy, e di kumita pa ko," shared Vice.
His first starring role is the remake of the comedy film Petrang Kabayo in 2010.
It was followed by Praybeyt Benjamin, which was a big hit and cemented his star as a blockbuster comedian.
Aside from being a judge in PGT, he is also a host on noontime show It's Showtime.
