- Vice Ganda and Mariel Padilla suddenly remembered the time when they got rejected in audition
- The actor revealed that he got depressed when he failed to get the lead role in a movie
- Mariel, meanwhile, said that she auditioned in Jericho Rosales’ teleserye
“It’s Showtime” hosts Vice Ganda and Mariel Padilla willingly shared on air the rejections they experienced when they auditioned in ABS-CBN shows before.
KAMI learned that the promising celebrities made the revelation while hosting the “Tawag ng Tanghalan” segment of the said noontime show.
The topic was brought up when Vice and Mariel were convincing a daily contestant that he needs to hope for a better future.
The comedian then shared about the acting audition that he tried few years ago which would give him an opportunity to star in his supposedly first movie.
However, Vice failed to advance to the next round of audition and his friend Chokoleit was the one who got the lead role.
“Alam mo yung pelikulang Zsa Zsa Saturna? Nag audition ako diyan. Lahat ng stand-up comedian sa buong Pilipinas nag audition. Hindi ako nakuha…” the actor quipped.
“Tapos sobra akong na-depress. Sabi ko, ba’t hindi ako nakuha? Ang nakuha si Chokoleit… Sa semi pa lang, wala na ako…” he added.
Because of the Unkabogable Star’s confession, Mariel also disclosed that tried her luck to be part of the now-defunct teleserye “Panday” starring Jericho Rosales.
Unfortunately, after auditioning in front of the bosses of ABS-CBN, the actress did not get the role and was not given the opportunity to have her solo show.
“Ako nag audition din. Doon sa soap ni Jericho… Yung ‘Panday.’ Hindi ako nakuha tapos hindi rin ako nagkaroon ng solo show ko. Pero naging host naman ako…” Mariel shared.
“Pero nag audition talaga ako, solo audition. Ako lang, lahat nandoon. Si Mr. M, lahat ng mga bossing nandoon. Si Jericho mismo nandoon. Sobrang nagsisimula pa lang ako noon,” she added.
